    The Sabich Sandwich is my favorite vegetarian dish in NYC. It's loaded with eggplant, hard-boiled egg, hummus, and more but the amba sauce is the key. Read all about my visit on WinstonWanders below!! Read more

    Take it from an Israeli. Best falafel in the city. From the bread, to the construction, to the different flavored of perfectly cooked falafel. Perfection. Better than most places in Israel

    The Sabich Sandwich is by far and away the best wrap sandwich we have ever had. It is truly special and everybody in the West Village knows about it. Read more

    The falafel sandwich is so good here. The only problem is that we never know which flavor to get. Any side of vegetables here is amazing as well! Read more

    There was a good food for lunch or dinner. And also food tastes so good. Desert food is very traditional food in Turkey. I am definitely going to visit there again.

    Been going to Taim since it opened and it's the best falafel in the city. Unless you hate cilantro: order the green falafel sandwich (sans cabbage) and prepare for your taste buds to explode! 😋

    The Harissa falafel platter is my favorite! It comes with 7 falafel a, two refreshing salads, hummus and seasoned pita. Great smoothies as well.

    Regular green falafel with baba ganoush! Get fries with it and it's the perfect dinner before heading out to the various bars in the area. Get the hot sauce and with your falafel.

    Obsessed with the falafel sandwiches! (Harissa is my fave.) Their truffle fries are also absolutely yummy; they come with saffron aioli and you'll be sad to see how quickly you eat them all.

    Entirely vegetarian falafel place (the daily specials are especially interesting) with awesome gluten free options. Service can be an issue, especially at lunch, and the line situation is untenable.

    I order the mixed falafel platter and it was so good and very filling. I meant to take a photo but I couldn't wait to dig in! Only downside is the place is super tiny so taking it to go is likely.

    The mini-platter of green falafel is definitely enough for a yummy (but not to heavy) lunch. Four falafels in total, plus Israeli salad. Ask for extra hot sauce. Passover matzah is clutch.

    Favorite falafel in NYC and beyond. Mediterranean platter with harissa is my go-to, and the smoothies are also fantastic. Try the coconut for something light and refreshing.

    Huge, tasty falafel made fresh to order. Bonus: they're also gluten-free & the menu is strictly vegetarian & mostly vegan. Traditional Middle Eastern fare with a gourmet twist. Try the saffron aioli.

    Great place. Never try falafel better. Take away that falafel sandwich, whole wheat, harissa, ginger&mint lemonade. Only few places inside, but a lot of small parks in the neighborhood

    Try the green falafel sandwich ($6.25). The flavorful green falafel–fried mashed chickpea mixed with parsley, mint, and cilantro–are moist on the inside, and lightly crisp on the outside. Read more

    First falafel place I've ever been that has multiple flavors. Very affordable and wonderfully crisp. The pear-mint-lemon smoothie is delicious and refreshing!

    Taïm is run by Food Network Chopped champion Einat Admony. You will not find a better falafel sandwich at any price in New York City. Also try the "Sabich" for something a little out of the ordinary!

    Try the green falafel. The crunchy exterior conceals a fluffy core, with a nutty, herbaceous flavor complemented by silky hummus and tahini sauce. It’s one of our #100best dishes and drinks of 2011. Read more

    Best falafel in the city. I like getting the platter - falafels, hummus, israeli salad and toubli - and taking the rest home. The harissa falafel is my favorite flavor

    Tucked away this proper hole in the wall serves amazing middle eastern food. Suggest take way as there is very little room for sitting at times. But there is a bench outside and a park near by on 7ave

    "If you fancy yourself a trendsetter, try the sabich — a warm pita stuffed with fried eggplant, organic egg, hummus, Israeli salad, chopped parsley, and tahini."

    can't decide which of the three falafel options you'd like best? order the sampler and get two of each!

    Proper lebanese falafel!! With the medium spiciness sauce! Helpful staff if you forget that the cashier was talking so fast and she did not know the menu.

    Taim is a wonderful place as it serves terrifically authentic Israeli food and also caters to vegetarians. The falafel was one of the best we’ve experienced in NYC.

    Fresh, Mediterranean style vegetarian food. Get the classic green falafel with some extra tzatziki sauce on the side. Better than Mamoun's

    The falafel here is nothing short of excellent; cooked well, seasoned, and served hot. Get it with the green harissa sauce for some much-needed spice.

    Don't forget to ask for your falafel "with everything" - pickles, s'rug and amba. And don't forget to get a smoothie. Pear + mint + lemon are the perfect trio.

    Looks like any ordinary chain falafel joint, but it's anything but! Sabich is insanely good: silky eggplant, hard-boiled egg slices, Israeli salad, hummus, amba sauce. Still thinking about it...!
  • Alessandro O.
    Gorgeous mediterranean-vegetarian. Try the Falafel platter. Not much room for sitting and chatting: plan take-away and find a nice spot in the Village to eat.

    Our pick for the best falafel sandwich in New York. Clean, crisp, and grease-free, with great hummus and salads.

    Somehow even smaller than the SoHo location, but the recommendation is the same: harissa falafel sandwich on a whole wheat pita with feta cheese added in.

    The Green Falafel Sandwich + Ginger Lemonade is really amazing here, but super over-priced. Glad I tried it to see what the hype was about, but going forward, I'm sticking with Mamouns.

    Get a Sabich sandwich! Super popular in Israel, it's such a great mix of flavors and not very common to find in the US.

    They have a special falafel flavor that changes daily; mushroom and thyme is my fave! Be sure to ask what their special is!

    Really hungry? Or maybe just really hungover? Get the Sabich: a pita overflowing with fried eggplant, hard-boiled egg, salad and hummus.

    The falafel sandwiches are delicious. You could easily walk past this place (it's tiny and on a quiet street), but don't miss it!

    Taim is famous for its excellent falafel, but the real star is a drink made from dates and bananas blended with…soy milk and…lime.

    The best falafel & smoothies in the city. Pear, mint, lemon smoothie is something special. Ask about the day's special falafel.

    Possibly the best falafel I've ever had. Or wait, definitely the best falafel you'll ever have! Get the platter. Also try the harissa and red falafels.

    A welcome new outpost of an NYC favorite. Yeah the falafel rule, but give the sabich platter some love too!

    Get the hummus sandwich & date/banana smoothie. Eat it in the little park on the corner of 12th st and 7th ave
