Such a great little spot to stop and get a delicious messy falafel! Was visiting my sister who goes to NYU and she took me here. The falafel was amazing, and the price is even better. We only waited a minute before the food was ready. There isn't much space inside to eat, but we were comfortable eating right outside... More

Taken by a friend to try New York's finest falafel, and the bread and filling was so tasty. With a handy little park nearby so you can sit on the bench in the sun and try not to get covered in tahini.

Mamouns is a small restaurant with a tiny counter located on the middle of Mc Dougal Street in a hip area near NYU. There is always a line, but it moves quickly. My favorite order: falafel sandwich with hummus and baba ganoush and a side of tabbuli. It is messy,delicious and memorable all for a great price! Seating is limited... More

Was told by a friend who lived in town not to miss. So glad I didn't. I ended up having both a Falafel and a Shawarma. Great specially drinks.

I know falafel. I grew up eating them ... ate from many Egyptian resturants back home. Those guys on NY got it right. Really fluffy and tender. Also, for those who appreciate the HEAT, they have their own special hot sauce which goes well with their falafel (caution: it's hot). Recommended place for take out falafel.

Mamoun's is a find for a quick, delicious Middle Eastern meal. Don't waste your time on the food carts - head to Mamoun's for falafel, kabobs, shawarma and more. Squeezed into a tiny shop on Macdougal St. near NYU and Washington Sq, don't miss it! There was a fast- moving line out the door but well worth the wait. We... More

Mamoun also has a place in New Haven, CT, but this hole in the wall seats about 10 people and is a favorite of NYU students, reasonably priced, and often has a line out the door. The falafel is seasoned with Middle Eastern herbs and is not spicy. The sandwich is infectiously good.

Being a big fan of falafel I had to try this place out and was not disappointed! Being a vegan, I opted for the veggie sandwich, where you choose two options that come in a pita with plenty of salad. I chose the homous and falafel sandwich which was delicious! It is great value for money and only costs just... More

Falafel is falafel, right? Wrong, this is the kind of delicious and crazy cheap falafel you go out of your way to get. Or, say, grab before a show at the Comedy Cellar and then go again right after.

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.
