Taïm is the love child of husband and wife team, Chef Einat Admony and Stefan Nafziger. In 2005, homesick for the favorite street food of Tel Aviv, they heard of a tiny store front available on quiet Waverly place and decided to open their own falafel shop...

    This has been the best falafel I've tasted. It was a combination of super fresh falafel and a complex tasting salad

    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

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

    The saffron aioli is truly delicious and worth the visit if you feel like some fries.

    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.

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

    Celena Chan · August 25
  • Yoni Z.

    The Sabich is the move over the falafel - I do wish the schug were spicier

    Yoni Zloczewski · August 24
  • Emily W.

    Try the mixed falafel platter--you get a lot of food for not too much money and you get to try all three flavors

    Emily Wilson · August 22
  • Martin D.

    Falafel (ask for it "with everything" and grab an extra napkin)

    Martin Doudoroff · August 16

  • Stavria K.

    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.

    Stavria K. · August 1
  • Afi Y.

    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!

    Lives up to the hype of best falafel sandwich in the city

  • Charlotte S.

    Moved in round the corner and know this will be my go-to place for fresh delicious takeout. Too easy.

    Charlotte Scarf · April 23
  • Tom J.

    The green falafel is good but I prefer Mamoun's, which is cheaper too

    Tom Joseph · April 9
  • Sarah S.

    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.

    Sarah Spagnolo · April 6
  • Zayed K.

    No secret that they serve some of the best falafel in the city. The pita is perfect too. Get the sampler plate.

  • Hyo Min K.

    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.

    While I love the falafel here the sabich sandwiches are truly sublime. Num, num, num.

  • D K.

    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.
