The beef shaweerma sandwich is very tasty and one is not enough! The hummus great way to cool down from the yummy spicy sauce that you should have on the side of the shaweerma sandwich and its irresistible!

If you're looking for a great place for a snack in Greenwich village this place is a must to visit. We tried the chicken, lamb and falafel and they were all really tasty and cheap too.

Anytime I'm over in Greenwich Village, I automatically think of Mamoun's Falafel. I can't remember when I stared coming here but Im not stopping anytime soon. Best food best service around! Worth the wait, the line usually goes by fast. Easy simple and good food.

No seating, no nonsense, limited choice middle eastern food. Often lines out the door but they get you in and out fast. Food is good. Not raving about it. Lots of competition there. Many other great restaurant choices in that area but if you are in that area,you have a craving for Middle Eastern Food and you don't mind standing/walking... More

A Greenwich Village institution for decades! Fresh, succulent falafel, volcanic hot sauce in the heart of Greenwich Village with Washington Square Park and bars and restaurants just steps away! The place is tiny with only a few tables, but most folks get it to go, and business is almost always booming at Mamoun's.

I have heard (being a native New Yorker) that the food here is great. I don't believe in anything that I read mentions that it is mainly take-out. A friend and I went before a concert but realized that there were only 2 benches directly outside this small place and it had just rained...and we wanted to really sit down.... More

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.
