The hummus falafel is really good, but do take care about that hot sauce. Super fast and great prices.

Falafel was very very good but it was the side of hummus that was better than any I have ever had. This is the pinnacle of value in NYC. Amazing. Delicious. Dirt cheap. Cash only is only drawback.

The first time I tried to get in here the line was out the door and so was I. Got back recently at an early time and walked right in. Had the falafel pocket. Small and inexpensive. That's a good thing. If you want more you get more, if you didn't you got a nice taste. Be careful with the... More

This is perhaps the best falafel place outside the holy land that I have had in New York. They have very nice baba, tabouli salad, and kofta. That are on plates which in turn fills you up. Tge only thing is the place is really very dingy and unappetizing so take it to go. You will like the hot sauce... More

I came here because most places were closed at the time. The restaurant isn't very clean but damn was the food good! I gave this a 5 star because I could not have asked for anything better. For travellers (since this is trip advisor) who want a cool new york street food experience, I think this place does it right.

I read so many reviews on how good this place was for a falafel, so really wanted to try it. I am not a big falafel fan or anything (I'd rather order a Gyro or Shwarma usually), but I really wanted to see if they were made better here than what I've had in the past. They were really tender... More

We were looking for an inexpensive place to grab a quick meal when we were visiting New York, I read a few reviews about this place and I totally agree with the majority of writers, I had the lamb sandwich and my wife had a falafel sandwich, they were both great, we liked them so much we came back another...

This is the best and fastes service I have ever had at a fast food place. The falafel is supposedly the first one in NY and still holds a compettive price of 3,5. Baba ganoush is also worth trying.

Staying in Greenwich Village

Neighborhood Profile
Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to get a feel for this diverse and energetic neighborhood. You’ll find NYU students, street performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess. Stroll the streets to discover a mix of majestic town homes and hidden bars and restaurants that give this neighborhood an old-school residential feel. When the sun goes down, check out one of the famous jazz or comedy clubs that still packs them in every night.
