Every time I stay on the UWS, I stop here. The hummus is amazing, so many varieties. I had trouble choosing so I got the sampler! Falafel is great, Israeli salad fresh. Delicious fresh Mediterranean cuisine. Perfect for a late lunch or intimate dinner.

You must walk below the sidewalk into this cozy restaurant in a basement. The interior is small and interesting. We ordered 6 mezze and it was all very good. Very recommended.

Our server was so attentive and sweet that we felt like we were dining in... More

Terrific hummus -- standout. A local favorite because it is reasonably priced as well. No ambience, but go for the food.

We had a very late lunch or you can say very early dinner at this wonderful place. We have decided to order 3 side dishes: Falafel, Fries, and Hummus. Then we also ordered Labane Cheese that looked and tasted more like a thick Greek yogurt then any kind of known to me cheese. ( It was sprinkled with herbs and... More

I've been here today and already want to come back! The hummus was amazing (we ordered the one with mushrooms and onion ... Simply delicious!) Also, the parra leaves and falafel was really good. And must try the tabouli. The ambience was cozy and the waitress super friendly! Definitely coming back on my next visit to NYC
