“Tastiest, freshest and quickest falafel in NYC”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014 via mobile

Great little food truck with the best falafel I have ever tasted. Get the "full sandwich" with white sauce, a bit of spicy sauce and the fries.

The pace is fast, the line is long, the service is surly, and the food justifies it all!

Eat in the little public plaza behind 1166 6th Ave btw 43rd and 44th.

Best for VEGETARIAN

Best falafel at a pure veg outlet. If you are or a pitta/bread fan OPT for half falafel.

Been coming here on/off for 8 years and it never fails! Good prices for a quick lunch. Beware! Line does get long but moves fast!

“cheap and so unbelievable tasty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 March 2013

I like falafel very much, if it is wel prepared. I can assure you this is one of the best I ever had! Aprox 5 USD and you are all set....and so tasty! Originally this company is from Amsterdam...
I tried a lot of falafel all over the world but this was most certainly the best. So even better than the middle east! Huge compliment!

“Probably the best take out Falafel in NY”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 December 2011

This mobile food van serves the best falafel in town. They fill the pocket of a pita with lettuce salad, 4 chickpea falafel balls, white sauce and optional red sauce (Take it, if you can- its hot but delicious). They also give optional fries and/or pickle to top it off. I think that they also add hummus- I think I could taste it the last time I ate one of these but I am not sure. On a nice day, you can buy something to drink and walk to happening Bryant Park about two blocks south where you can get seating and tables and make a nice picnic of it. They also sell these in half portions for those with a smaller appetite. They also sell falafel balls that you can take home with you and make your own Pita sandwich with the sauces that they include.
Be prepared for a long line in front of the van. However, the service is very fast and the line moves fast.
