I like this restaurant because it has a non-typical NYC atmosphere! You almost feel like you're in a different country...and I love the fact that the soccer channel is on (very often).

My favorite falafel place in NYC! The hummus is unbeatable. I used to work nearby and ate there at least a few days a week. Now that I have moved away, I still sometimes travel down there to pick up lunch- it's worth the trip! You can also get your shawarma on a hero, which is a nice option and quite delicious. Highly recommended!

My husband and I tried this restaurant on Monday and were disappointed. We tried the hummus - it lacked any flavor. Hummus is not just ground chick peas mixed with tahini. The shwarma was also tasteless. Also, since it did not come off a spit and was heated in a frying pan, I assume it was precooked. My husband's lamb kebab were very fatty and also tasteless. I am Israeli and we have both grown up in NYC eating middle-eastern foods; we know what these foods should taste like. As another reviewer mentions, the "intense flavors of greatness aren't there." That's being generous. The prices may be good but then, most middle-east sandwich shops are inexpensive.

Lovely people who work there, the food is excellent. I love the falafel over there, probably one of the best falafel in manhattan. The hoomoos is thick the way it should be. It feels like im back at home in israel. Everyone should at least give it a shot.

They have a great hummus experience all together.

Their turkish coffee is great (made in sand), their babaganoush is very good. Try "health sandwich" with everything. Their meat, however, was poor both times I tried it - scorched on one side and tough on the other.
