    With its luxuriance of fried chickpea fritters, nutty tasting tahini, and fresh greens, onions, and tomatoes, Mamoun's falafel redefined a quick bite for New Yorkers. Read more

    Yada yada yada - if u don't know the falafel sandwich is the best in the city, where've u been for the past 15+ yrs? Don't sleep on the lentil soup. It'll change your life. Hot sauce all around...

    Best Babaganough I haven't found anywhere else! I wish I could make the equivalent at home ...until then I Ill get it as a sandwich to eat right away and sometimes as plate to take home.

    7aram 3alek you left your friends at the bar for some delicious falafel, but it's kind of hard to feel bad when everything tastes so good.

    Thee Best Bad Ass New York Falafel and #1 in Popularity with New York's is in a Prime location in Greenwich Village. Get a Falafel then go next door to Caffe Reggio for a nice Greenwich Village treat.

    Yummy Eqyptian Middle Eastern restaurant in the heart of the Village. They have delicious falafel, chicken shwarma, hummus. The line is usually out the door because the prices are reasonable as well..

    Mamoun's is legendary. One is able to overlook the decrepit, tiny interior because the authentic falafel and shawarma sandwiches are to die for. Perfect for lunch or dinner on the go.

    Ok so you made a mistake and poured that hot sauce instead of dripping it? grab a bottle of Ayran (Turkish yoghurt drink) from Turkiss a little south on the same street. your mouth will thank you.

    Falafel sandwich ($3.50) is pretty amazing considering the price. I mean, it's three freaking fifty for a falafel sandwich. You can't go wrong with it. Super quick service--gets packed!

    Cheap, filling and fast. Also, it's not too unhealthy. I love the baba ganouj but others swear by the falafel. For $3.50 each, try both.

    For less than $5, you’ll get a pita-full of schwarma, deliciously creamy baba ghannouj, and falafel that’s cooked just right (crunchy on the outside, fluffy and moist on the inside).

    Small, tasty and veggie-friendly - falafel is the best thing to come from a chickpea. New Yorkers have certainly taken to these fried fritters, but if you're looking for the best, look no further. Read more

    You can do a full course meal here. Start with a side of babaganoush, then falafel or shawarma sandwich, a baklava and a cup of tea. 12 bucks on the outside.

    6 bucks for the falafel plate which is basically two sandwiches. So good. So cheap. Classic example of where even the meat eaters go veggie.
  • Gabriel C.
    I love mamoun's! Best beef shawarma around and the falafel is also excellent. Great place to come to late night after hitting up the bars in the area.

    One of the best falafel, hands down. Try out chicken kebab version as well. Don't be dissuaded by the long line - these guys have an exceptional turn around time.

    get the delicious $6.00 shawarma and a soda to go. walk to Washington Square or West towards Hudson River Park. sit down and enjoy the best meal in town.

    Even if you don't care much for falafel (I don't), their shawarma is out of this world. Go when they are not crazy busy and the meat is deliciously charred on the edges.

    The chicken kebab was a bit dry-- a great cheap eat though, get the platter! The tahini sauce is a must.

    The city's best falafel and chicken schwarma and the $2.50 price tag can't be beat. Use the hot sauce sparingly though, don't say we didn't warn you!

    The best, but they've been slacking lately - none of the requested hot sauce OR hummus on my $4 (!) falafel and hummus pita the other evening :(

    NYC’s best cheap falafel costs $3.50. Also try the pita with baba ganouj or the shawarma sandwich. Careful with the spicy sauce!

    Love the falafels here. If you get the player don't get both hummos and baba. Portions are big and they are heavy! Cash only.

    My favorite falafel place in NYC by far. Cheap, delicious, and open until 4 AM. Doesn't get much better. Cash only though.

    The chicken kabob and falafel sandwich combo is the BEST. Hope you like spicy! Their sandwiches send you to flavor town.

    Great for a quick and dirty falafel sandwich. But if you're looking for something more than chopped lettuce and diced tomatoes in your sandwich, look elsewhere. Killer hot sauce tho.

    Great falafel for just 2.50. Be sure to be careful with the spice sauce or enjoy the notoriously famous 'Mamoun's After party'.

    Open late with delicious pita sandwiches to soak up all that dive bar liquor. Definitely try their fresh baba ganouj.

    Tiny joint, cheap n decent. Baba ganoush a bit strange. Falafel is great. Next time will try the shawarma.

    Whether your looking for a quick snack or bombed from a late night of drinking & dancing stop by Mamouds. You'll feel like a million bucks within minutes. I go for the falafel shawarma mix.

    Forget the falafel, baba ghanoush is so much more flavorful, saucy, eggplant goodness. This sandwich is a hot mess, you can't eat it delicately at all.

    I don't care how much better you think your local falafel guy is, this is the most famous falafel place in the city. Nothing comes close to the consistency of a delicious Mamoun's Falafel anywhere!
