After ordering three times from this restaurant, I am impressed by the constant freshness of the food. I highly recommend the shish kebab, the fool mudamas, the tabouleh, the baba ganough, the falafel and the rice mujadara. The only item I have not liked so far is the salad which lacks flavor (dressing on the side would be nice). I'm not enthusiastic about the bread, but it is the same kind of pita that one gets at Al Bustan so I guess it must be Lebanese style. Service was prompt and courteous and my orders were filled correctly.

This was my favorite falafel place in the city - with the best lamb shawarma I've ever had - but the lovely family that used to own this place sold it, and now it operates under the same name with some of the same staff, but new owners. The food has already gone down hill...the tip off for me was the former owners amazing hot sauce - which we discussed bottling in the past - is no longer there. But I also have confirmation from someone, though they were told to not tell anyone. I was literally devastated - sadly I'm not exaggerating - but The high quality of food and service is already gone.

I have been a huge fan of Alfanoose for a few years, but since it changed hands, the service has really declined. There is inadequate staff to handle the lunchtime rush. The service is extremely slow and the operation is very disorganized. The last sandwich I got there was poorly prepared and completely fell apart. I decided to give the place another chance, but have now walked out twice because of overly long waits.

I went here because there are very few places to get a falafel sandwich in the Financial District if you don't want to eat from a cart. All in all, Alfanoose is okay. The interior is quite dismal and looks a bit disorganized and the only really annoying thing is that there's a $15 minimum purchase in order to use your credit card (and you can't see the sign that states that until you're at the front of the line). The falafel sandwich was good, but fell apart. The pita they used is very thin, almost like a tortilla. For $6.50 (this includes tax), the falafel sandwich was a little pricier than other places I've liked (Tahini, Mahmoun's), but if I'm desperate for some falafel, I'll go back.

Chicken schwarma sandwich was unappetizing, bread was all soggy, fell apart when I opened it, the chicken was of low quality, had some pickled radish in it which was subpar. Threw it out after 3 bites
