I am from PA - saw the "throwdown" w/ Bobby Flay - had to try Taim when I went to NYC. What a treat - you have to try the 3 different falafel. And the hummus was THE best I have ever had. Great Value and Delicious food - 4 of us went and we were not disappointed - my niece who spends a lot of time in NYC said she definitely will go back. Thank goodness it was a nice day because we had to sit outside. Service was a might slow but well worth the wait. We went right at lunch time so there was a long line but the cashier was very helpful and never rushed anyone. Taim is on my list for every trip to NYC.

We have lived and traveled extensively in the Middle East. This falafel and hommous was the best we have ever tried. My mom says it reminded her of the best falafel she ate in Cairo and Baghdad, only this was better!! Please keep up the great quality and we will always support Taim!!

I eat from Taim at least weekly. I have never been disappointed. Delicious home made food excellent falafel, fries are the best in NY and Babaganoush is authentic - I keep a tub in the fridge.

Taim is the type of small business that makes me happy and gives me faith that corporate america and the "big box store" and "chain restaurant" society will not win! They are a small, charming and wonderful business that serves high quality food and pays attention to detail (when you order the falafel platter - they put the falafel balls in a separate paper bag so they don't get soggy - come on that's great!). They seem to get everything right. Amazing, crispy and not greasy falafel (the traditional "green") is my fave. Delicious lemony tabouli, smooth and tasty hummus, fresh israeli salad amazing sauces (s'rug - a spicy delicious treat). If you go - you MUST try the Pomegranate Honey Iced Tea. Every sip makes me swoon.

I'm a native New Yorker exiled to the west coast at the moment. On a trip home last week, I made a point of going to Taim. I was not disappointed!! The lightest most flavourful falafel I have ever eaten (and I eat a lot of falafel all over the world). The Pita was magnificent as well. I will be making it a regular stop on my trips back to NY and have already recommended it to all of my friends!!

I also heard about Taim on Bobby Flay's Throwdown. The falafel is simply the best. It even beats L'as du Falafel in Paris and that is saying something!

I'm not sure what fault the last reviewer found with the falafel sandwich - I thought it was one of the best I've ever had. Not the biggest, but the best. The pita was absolutely fresh and still warm and chewy and crackly from the oven, worth the trip all by itself. The falafel was absolutely fresh, light, moist and well-flavored. It was not OVER salted or OVER spiced, which I find at a lot of places, nor was it dry, another common fault (lots of hockey pucks out there). When it's fresh, you don't need to cover up the flavor with too much salt or hot sauce. It was made with a perfectly fresh salad mix and dressing, wrapped in waxed paper and handed to me with a wooden bowl. My only complaint is that the place is super-small and the only seating is a few barstools by the window. It gets crowded really fast, but with food this good, it's not hard to see why. Considering plenty of delis charge $8 and up for crappy sandwiches with funky veggies, I think $5.50 is not bad at all for the sandwich here, and you will not leave hungry.
