It's quick and it's cheap and the guys are sweet. these things are good. but the food just doesn't cut it. not great hummus. the sauces are overgarlicked, the pitas are dry and crumble as you eat... the french fries, though. the french fries are solid.

I have been going to Amirs since the 1970's and highly recommend it. It is more of a fast food place but the food is fresh and delicious and seemingly healthy. I love this place! Very good tahini sauce too.

I have been going to Amir's my whole life, and have been to numerous other Middle Eastern restaurants to compare it to. Amir's is still one of the best. The recipes have not changed in my 22 years of frequenting the restaurant and are still as good as they ever were. This place is truly better than anywhere else in the Heights, which are new, expensive, and sorry excuses for food establishments. Instead of bashing this place and searching for its flaws, we should all sing its praises. Try a lebanese style pita wrap with beef.

Hey, c'mon! The stuff there is fast, relatively heathy and CLEAN. Easy to digest, not fatty, heavy or too rich. Which is more than can be said for most of the joints on that strip of Broadway...

The food is fine, the service is prompt and friendly. Not the best, but finding a good, qucik eat on the UWS is not easy...

To be honest, the only good thing about Amir's is the staff, which is friendly, and its proximity to Columbia. The food is average but expensive (you should never pay more than a buck for a lahmajoun). Also, Amir's doesn't accept debit cards, which has to be one of the more annoying things that a restaurant in New York can do.

Food quality is poor. Service may be instantaneous, prices are low, but you're really getting just a bad imitation of what baba ganoush, falafel and all the delicious stuff is meant to be...
