It's fair to say that you might encounter a (quick) wait to get in, but I also think it's worth it. The falafel is perfect, the pita is piping hot, and the ouzi is something you'll crave until you go back for more. Also, the mint iced tea is refreshing and a great addition to your meal. Definitely recommend having it delivered as well - they are SPEEDY! One downside... CASH ONLY... beware.

They make you wait outside for ages and tend to be rude; it is noisy, the place is very simple. We only go there for the food which is good and not expensive.

I like the last guys review that thinks he can compare this place with food from Mamoun's or Ali Baba. You must not have tried the Pita, if you do not like factory Pita maid by AMD this is the place to be, freshly made infront of you instead of out of a plastic bag. Now the reason the West Side Moustache is my favorite over the East Side is that the staff seems more attentive and professional. Reviewers are correct to say that space is limited, it's more like a bistro. But some really cool music. I am going back soon to have some foul (try ordering that at mamoun's) with hot sauce and pita with houmous. Yani unreal! Anyone that orders ceasar salad in a place like this is crazy, you gotta eat the "goods"

Based on the reviews I thought this place would at least be worth getting takeout. 7.50 dollar falafel sandwiches should rival Mamoun's or Kabab Cafe's. The lamachun should at least compare with Ali Baba's right, at these prices? The man was short with me on the phone and laughed when I requested parsley/lettuce/onion/lemon with my lamachun- normal accompaniments. He suggested some greens instead and charged me 7.50 for a greek salad! The lamachun was soggy and cut like an american pizza so I couldn't even roll the wilted salad up in it- the artichokes in the salad were taint- the falafel was very dry - and was about the only thing in the sandwich except for some discolored lettuce- and the outside of pidae was wet. I won't be going here again, especially for delivery.

Really good food-- amazing hummos and the other reviewer is right- the ouzi was outrageous. Not a romantic spot though - and there was a cat under the table next to us the whole time, but if that doesn't bother you-- go for it!

Outstanding food from start to finish. The hot pitas are to die for. We eat here every time we are in New York and have never had anything less than an excellent meal and always at a very favorable price. The tables are close and the place is always full so not recommended for an intimate meal.

The atmosphere of this restaraunt is very relaxing and the pizza is delicious.
