Everything wasgreat. I felt like I was getting authentic middle eastern food at a great price. All you can eat salad bar. Clean and a relaxing, homy atmosphere.

“Never again”
Reviewed January 25, 2009

- wayyyy overpriced - $11.75 for a shwarma in a pita and 13.75 in a laffa. That is more expensive than a decent waiter serviced place in Manhattan (ie Mr. Broadway, Olympic Pita - and these places are way better).
- poorly run: You wait in line to order/pay, then walk down to the other end of the counter to pick up your order where pandemonium ensues - not everyone respects the line so people just walk up and ask for the food all at once, thereby overwhelming the workers preparing orders.
- One of the workers wasn't wearing gloves
- Our food trays were soaking wet
- The shwarma was way too greasy
- I ruined my sandwich by pouring ranch dressing on it at the salad bar thinking it was tahinna. This was my fault i guess but what self respecting shwarma/falafel place serves ranch dressing.
-Items i liked included, the beet salad and the fountain soda (it's a sad state of affairs when the fountain soda was highlight of the meal).

“Great Pita, get over the service”
Reviewed December 24, 2008

So I have been to Famous Pita a couple of times, in both its old and new location. The food is delicious, the pita itself is perfect, the falafel fantastic, the hummus is heavenly. This place is not about great or even good service, so if you want great treatment, you might need to o somewhere else. But if you want GREAT food (and perhaps even the best falafel in NYC) and can cope with bad service, head over to Famous Pita.
