really the best – i work in mamoun's now...i have worked at many places in the city but i see that this place is really different. and special..some people may think that they are using low quality ingredients to produce the 2.50 falafels..but guess what,,all are grade A...that's why mamoun's last till now..
Best Falafel in the City – Excellent. Consistent and Yummy ALL the time!! No matter what time you go to the place, you will get the best hot Falafel in the city.
Best Falafel in NYC – I have been eating falafel for many years, and have tried too many restaurants (in too many cities) to keep count. Mamoun's is consistently at the top of my list, and the BEST in NYC for sure. Two bucks. Take someone and impress.
Great Falafel, Easy On The Wallet – Mamoun's is the perfect snack spot. The falafel and other assorted Middle Eastern snacks are all very cheap and despite the grimy atmosphere and tiny interior space, Mamoun's is still my #1 pick for falafel when I am in the area. I wouldn't travel far to get here but if I'm in the Village I always have to stop in for a quick bite. The best thing about Mamoun's is that it is open really late so even after leaving one of the bars in the area there is a cheap, delicious snack just a few blocks away at most. The one downside... cash only... but with such cheap falafel and snacks, that's usually not a problem.
Still going strong – With so many eateries going the way of gone thanks to the explosion of the pricey highrises it's great when places like Mamoun's are still going strong. I don't want to date myself and say how long I've been enjoying their fried-to-order falafel, but it's been a mighty long time! So for cheap, realiable, delicious eats when your out on the town or just walking by this place still can't be beat!
The ONLY place to get a Falafel! – It might look like a whole in the wall but what more can you possibly want? They're fast, they're cheap, AND they are absolutely delicious! This is the best place to get a Falafel in the city!
Thank you, God! There's one on St. Mark's now! – Rejoice, East Village! There's a new Mamoun's on St. Mark's just off Third Ave. This place makes the second-best falafel sandwich in the city (#1 is Rainbow, on 17th/Broadway) and it's so far superior to vile Chickpea around the corner (saurkraut does NOT belong on a falafel sandwich!!!) as to be in a different league. St. Mark's Mamoun's has the same three tables as the MacDougal shop, as well as two outdoor cafe tables on the sidewalk. Only downside is that it's down a short flight of stairs and thus handicapped-inaccessible.
the BEST place in the whole city! – if you live or have even visited NYC and don't know about this place, HOW CAN U NOT??? mamouns is the best place to get falafel pita by far. $2 for the tastiest, fastest food you will ever eat. just go here, and dont be fooled by the fact that its a closet, just eat the food and you will be addicted!!
SOOOOOOOOOOOOO GOOOOOOOOOOD – AWESOME PLACE. FAST, FRIENDLY SERVICE, AND THE FOOD IS DELICIOUS. VERY INEXPENSIVE TOO. THE ONLY DRAWBACK IS THAT ITS USUALLY PACKED AND THERE ARE ONLY A FEW SEATS.
Good, cheap, but overrated & hiit-or-miss – It's good and cheap, and although there's usually a long annoying line of NYU kids it moves fast. Service is quick. The first few times I had the hummus and babaganoush falafel, it was great. But over the years, I think the quality has slightly declined--maybe because the popularity increased and certain sacrifices were made by this tiny restaurant, or maybe it was just those fews days I went.
Stop by if you're already in the area, but don't break your neck to go there.
