We stopped here for a quick bite to eat because we wanted falafel. The food was delicious and I couldn't believe how inexpensive it was. Absolutely great value for money.

We were fortunate to have come on a day when NYC was fairly uninhabited. We didn't have to wait on the usual long lines. Fast food that was actually fast!!! The falafel was excellent! It would have been worth the wait!

Mamoun's was amazing. Super cheap sandwiches that are ridiculously good. Go with the falafel or hummus sandwich!

I LOVE falafel so was super excited to visit this hole in the wall joint. Unfortunately, it did not live up to the hype; the falafel sandwich was terrible! Don't bother!

Keep in mind this is essentially a small hole in the wall with two benches outside to sit down on if you're lucky, so the review is relative to casual restaurants. I ate here twice on a recent trip to NYC and the food is simply phenomenal. The falafel are exactly as described by so many people - the best... More

Food was absolutely perfect!! Exactly what we were craving when leaving The Comedy Cellar. Atmosphere?.. Not at all. Find a little spot to eat against the wall. Be VERY cautious of the hot sauce they have out on the counter!! HOT is an understatement to the absolute MAX!!

How can they make such a good food in such a tiny place? Don't worry about the queue, the service is very fast and in a few minutes you will eat a wonderful pita bread stuffed with falafel! Add some tahina sauce!!

I was told not to leave NY before having a shawerma from here. Doesn't look particularly appealing especially looking at the long queue snaking into this place. But it was all more than worth it! Pita bread stuffed high in succulent meat strips. Simply a culinary adventure! Your every taste bud is excited! I cannot, however not mention glistening fat... More

You come here expecting a long wait - but you do it with a smile on your face since you will soon be rewarded with a pita exploding with taste. Falafel, lettuce, yogurt, tahini, humus! It's the works, and its all super fresh and made on the fly. You order the sandwich and bam, less than 15 seconds later you... More
