Reviewed April 21, 2014

We stumbled onto this place when walking around town on Easter Sunday. The guys were friendly and the food was delicious. Great value too.

“I will wait forever for this!!!”
Reviewed April 21, 2014 via mobile

As a local who craves and loves his halal food, I just need to note that not all halal food is created equal as you will come to realize once you try this food stand. They have quite a system going to ensure that you get a quality meal in the least amount of time. However, be prepared to wait at pretty much all hours of the day. The food however is so very much worth it!! Chicken and lamb over rice is my personal favorite with the white and hot sauce on top. But you really can't go wrong. Plus for 6-7 dollars including a drink, common now, you really can't go wrong!!!

“Best value in NYC”
Reviewed April 20, 2014 via mobile

If I told you you could get a ton of great food for $6 in the heart of the Times Square District you'd think I was lying...but it's true! A pile of tasty meat over rice with your choice of sauces (go easy with the hot stuff!)...and open half the night. What could be better?

“Never had better food from a street vendor! MUST EAT in NYC!”
Reviewed April 15, 2014 via mobile

We had 9 people with us and we all got something different.... Then passed it around to try it all. I got the lamb gyro which was out of this world! I didn't have a single bite that wasn't excellent. A MUST EAT when in NYC! I ended going back the next day it was so good!

“Mmhhh”
Reviewed April 11, 2014 via mobile

We had this 2 nights in a row! Even in the cold windy weather it's well worth the walk! It's the only street food cart I trust in NYC to date! Very tasty! But even for all the spice lovers...go easy on the red sauce! Even a very tiny extra little can be enough to have u sweating!
