Ibby's has been serving very good falafel and shwarma for over 10 years in this vest pocket restaurant (some tables outside). If you're a conneuseur, the trucks in Manhattan can make you a better falafal, but not the sit-down and extras, Great lentil soup.

Cozy, little place. Good food. Lentil soup is ALWAYS on point!! Be careful with their hot sauce, IT IS HOT!! But delicious nontheless. Wish they deliver. But they prepare food very quickly, I call ahead and pick-up often. Never been disappointed.

Don't blink or you might miss this "neighborhood" eating place. With 4 tables outside & 3 (or is it 4?) stop to try their middle eastern fare. No regrets here. The servings are big, a platter can be good for two. It's great tasting food,

the place is very clean; there's outdoor seating if the weather cooperates; his platters are good, his sandwiches in peeta are great, his lentil soup is delicious, his baklawa (Middle-Eastern phylo-dough desserts) are very good; his espresso is worthwhile, too !

A simple cafe in a busy neighborhood . Will return to try the meat dishes . They need to fix their spinach pie. The spinach is too plain and the dough is boring

My wife's go to place for some good ol' middle eastern food. Love their falafel sandwich. You might wanna grab 2 coz its pretty light and you'll be hungry after that. Reasonable priced. It could do with a little more space to sit and eat and hence 4 stars.

And their super souvlaki was good- avoid the chicken gyro- VERY dry, and extra tzatziki is .50 per 2 oz container. The guys were efficient, if not terribly friendly. Order a sandwich rather than the plate (which comes with rice and salad and pita. The rice is nothing special (though plentiful) the salad very "meh" with pale tomato, iceberg and... More

We went here after a ling and tiring day during my visit to NYC. We ordered Falafal Platter and Bhaklava. Food was served fast and hot and was tasty. Place is very affordable but is very small place. Try to sit outside during hot summer days.
