Fantastic falafel + other delights, sweet conversation with ezra + his wife. The ambiance is a matter of taste that can go either way, could be a bit more cozy+ homey to reflect all of the intention + love that go into the food, but i still loved it.

We really liked the food - large falafel plate & a chicken shish kabob - at a great price. If you plan on eating here, seating is limited to 3 tables for 2 and one that seats 4. Order at the counter and he will bring to your table. While we were there most of the business was take away.... More

First ever Falafel, and was delighted with the quality of the food. The owner was extremely grumpy thought, which detracted from our experience a bit...

We passed Azuri Cafe on the way to another restaurant and decided to try it. We're glad we did! The restaurant is tiny and not much to look at, but the food is fantastic! We had gyros, beef kebabs, and falafel. The pitas these sandwiches are made in are stuffed full of delicious hummus, sauces, and large pieces of meat... More

The most delicious felafel, and salad etc in pita, great for lunch, cheap, and totally delicious. We walked past MANY places to come here - totally worth it. Ezra, the owner, is great, passionate about food and life. This is the second time we ate here in New York, but I know I will come back.

Read about this place on the net and saw many great reviews. I came there today and ordered the humus and the shish kebab, to be totally honest, the food was nice but my order was not completed, only got the kebab and the salad, what about the fries I asked, the owner said he didn't hear me and now...

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
