Went to Mmoun's today and was disappointed. I used to eat at the West Village location and thought I would try this one. The pita was so thin, it could not hold the sandwich and even though I asked for "a little" hot sauce, the sandwich was doused in it and set my mouth on fire. Will never come back again...there are plenty of other good place in NYC to get Shawarma!

Don't get me wrong ... I have been a major devotee of Mamouns over the past 15 years. However, the last few visits (East side) have been a bit depressing. Something feels like it's missing.

I haven't been to mamoun's in a while, and i'm not gonna be going back any time soon. The falafel is very so/so, and it was about half the size of the one from the cheap place around the corner from Mamoun's (on second avenue). The guy who was behind the counter couldn't have been any less bothered by my being there. Finally, I said "instead of talking to your friend, can you help me"?...One of the two said, "we were talking about business". Hello! I was standing right there. You guys were so NOT talking about "business". Be real, give good food, and I'll be back. For now, around the corner rocks:)...I hope a manager or owner reads this.

This is the best falafel and chicken shwarma i've ever had. Their hot sauce is crazy good! i love spicy food, and this is one of the spiciest i've had. I like this Mamouns better than McDougals cause they have chicken shwarma...best meal any time of day...

The shawarma here is execellent! very satisfying. The falafel is also better than most i've tried. The portions are good and for real cheap. Not a big fan of the hot sauce though - just tastes like chilli powder mixed with water.

For $2.50, you can't beat the quality and taste! It's a great tasting large falafel sandwich, with a great Depression 2.0 price. It has a high turnover rate, so the sandwiches are always fresh. I passed this place for five years without trying it, and now it's my go-to spot for falafel! But unless you really like hot sauce, don't try theirs - It's O.D. hot!

I am a huge fan of falafel, and I cannot understand how people actually enjoy eating at Mamoun's. I heard rave reviews before trying it and threw it away halfway through. I begrudgingly tried it again and had a similar experience. Perhaps those who have never eaten good falafel are those who like Mamoun's? The tahini has a bizarre aftertaste, and the falafel is consistently cold and bland. I would never waste $2.50 on such a poor food item, no matter how hungry or inebriated.
