Some brothers run this place, and it’s really just the best falafel place around. It’s nothing fancy, normal pitas and falafel, but holy cow is the depth of flavor just astonishing. You can taste the real crispy exterior and moist herbed interior of the falafel...through a mouthful of salad and tahini. So five stars there for bringing true falafel to NYC. HOWEVER, get the lentil soup. Just get it. Never had better. And get a hookah for dessert! Well, once COVID blows over. Anyway, you want falafel, it’s worth a trip to get some authentic deliciousness from these guys.More

This food is excellent! Great prices! I try to order from here once a week or once every other week. Never disappoints!

Another delivery during COVID 19. Fairly quickly and tons of extra flatware and napkins. I ordered from a place called Shawarma on Broadway. Turns out this is actually a pop-up for falafel on Broadway. Unlike other times I’ve been fooled and disappointed by pop-ups, this...one was fantastic! I got the chicken shawarma and fries. The chicken was hot, juicy, as well-seasoned. The fries were crispy and also seasoned. I also got falafel and tahini sauce. The falafel was crispy on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside, again the filling tasty and seasoned with garlic, onions, and spices. You get plenty with 10 pieces. Also got the hummus, which is authentic, creamy, and delicious. They also generous portion of seasoned pita bread. All of this was carefully prepared and so delectable. Again, this was must a pop-up. I imagine the full restaurant has all of this deliciousness and more.More

Falafel on Broadway makes for a quaint little introduction to anyone who hasn't had a falafel. Welcoming staff, very welcoming staff (they sure like to give impressions).

Maybe it was the food we choose but nit the place, but what we ordered was too plain. Customers came and left apparently very satisfied. So, I would have to give it another chance.

I went to Falafel on Broadway on a quick business lunch and loved it. The food is outstanding (I ordered the chicken gyro platter) and the service is friendly and efficient. The place doesn't look like much, but don't let that stop you, what they...lack in appearance they make up in taste!More

Welcoming owners and wait staff and nice variety of choices for lunch. Had the felafel sandwich and delicious tabouli on the side.

I eat here very regularly and love the felafel sandwich. the salad is okay. the baklava is amazing. The staff there is very friendly and very attentive. The only thing that I do not like sometimes is that people can smoke hookah in the restaurant...- this isn't always happening but when it is I take my food to go.More

I had the kebab gyros which was fabulous! It's not a fancy place by a long shot, but the service is fast and friendly, and the food was spectaculer. The pistaschio baklava was especially divine--I had two portions. I'd go back here a lot if...I lived anywhere near the area. Prices were great; not a given in an expensive place like NYC.More

Hands down the best Hummus I've had in NYC so far. Also their Salmon dish is divine!! Salmon was perfectly cooked, juicy not dry, with perfectly complementing side sauce of veggies in a tomato paste, absolutely savory. I try to come here at least once...a week. The owner is a sweetheart and the restaurant just has a great friendly atmosphere.More
