The falafel is #1 <br /> No one makes it as good as these guys.<br /> Great prices. The place isnt much for the<br /> eyes, but the food is worth it.

This place has great middle eastern food, by far one of the best in nyc. it's a small place, but they know what they're doing when it comes to tabouleh and falafel. Incredibly reasonable prices.
