My wife got the Shawarma plate and I got the Falafel plate and both were excellent. This is a take-away place and we were on our way to hear some music so it worked out great. The line is long but it moves quickly. Not expensive and worth a visit.

Ever since I was taken to have a Falafel at Mamouns, I have to return whenever I find myself in NYC! They are the best falafel ever! It is a small place with no seating area but definitely worth the experience! If the weather is good, grab one to go and have it in Washington Square park and enjoy the... More

I (literally) stumbled across this place after getting hammered with my fiancé at a nearby jazz bar at roughly 3:30am. The place was empty, all I noticed was the cheap prices on the menu so I bought a felafel wrap. Expecting the trashy(but tasty) Middle Eastern style kebab wraps that are so common in my hometown of Melbourne, I nearly... More

We stopped by Mamoun's based on other reviewers. Remember to bring cash, as they do not accept credit cards. We both had shawarma sandwiches, which did not stand up to sandwiches I had tried in the Middle East but by American standards, they were very good. The meat was a bit fatty but the sandwiches were filling, flavorful and affordable... More

AMAZING falafel sandwich with generous helping of hummus for $4?! My new favorite grab and go option in NYC. And be sure to try the hot sauce ... it's got some great kick!

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!
