    Not the original location (that'd be MacDougal St.) - but most certainly feels like it. Falafel still $3.50 and still fresh.

    Oh, that hot sauce. Something to be cherished. I recommend dousing your meal liberally with it and regretting yourself later.

    Be careful with the hot sauce! This place does spicy right! The food itself is mild, but the heat from this sauce is more than enough.

    Very good falafel salad!! The rice is interesting, infused with cinnamon and nutmeg for a sweeter taste. The hot sauce is painfully spicy but flavorful.

    Hello SCSY & YMUN delegates! This place is great for cheap late-night falafel. Ryan really like the baba gannouj (eggplant-based) and lamb shwarma sandwiches.
