Yummy falafel, incredible value

I have to start off by saying they are not the best falafel I've had, but I'm from the middle east and I've had many great versions. That being said this is my favorite falafel place in Manhattan. They are always freshly made and delicious and you can't beat the prices and there's something warm... read more

The falafel was ok, not the best I've ever had. Prices were good for what you get. Seems to be a bit overrated.

The best falafel in NYC - and fantastic Shawarma, Tabbouli, Hummus, lentil soup, etc. Old school NYC greatness - high quality and low prices - I would suggest visiting this location on McDougal and bypassing St. Marks (haven't been in a while but not the same) and New Haven, CT (not good - just a huge cut down in quality)....

The type of place you go to for cheap, good eats as a youngster that you still crave and rave about decades later when you can afford to eat fancier fare. A hole in the wall serving excellent quality falafel to a constant queue. Late night nosh for two with change back from a sawbuck - a food date for... More

We are visiting our daughter in New York and she told us if you want falafel there's only one place to go. Boy was she right. We all had a falafels and everyone loved it. The falafel balls were warm but not hot or spicy but not over done just perfect. The hummus was smooth and tasty and the total... More

It is an institution I have been going to for over 35 years. Only $3.50 for a fresh tasty felafel sandwich. Could very well be the best sandwich value in NYC. Others can sell some "fancier" felafel and be touted as being the best. But for the total experience, especially late night, nothing beats Mamoun's. Always good!

This is the original location. Feeding NYU students and the frugal alike with their basement bargain felafels. It also happens to be the best felafel that I have ever experienced. YUM. I remember when these tasty sandwiches were $2 a piece. Now the sandwiches are 3.50. Still a great price.

Whenever i go to new york or new jersey i make it a point to have the falafel at mamouns. Earlier there was only one outlet but now there are multiple franchisees of this place. the quality of the falafel is far better than a lot of other falafel joints.

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.
