One of the best Mediterranean food I have ever had. You would love this place if you get water in your mouth when you hear words like, Shawarma, Hummas, Roasted chicken, Taboli, kuta, Kibbey and so on. This place is super busy always have very limited sitting ( almost no sitting) best if you carry out . Good portion and... More

Had a Swiss cheese and tomato sandwich with olive oil which was the best I have eaten lately. Will definitely return to this place.

I discovered Karam many ago and every time I’m visit this neighborhood I always end up buying a few shawarma sandwiches that are simply mouthwatering. Their "Kebbe" also very tasty, as well as their great variety of salads. Prices are very reasonable.

This middle eastern place produce wonderful Chicken,Meat and spinach pies. It is best to take out as it is very noisy and hectic. They have a full range of items but these are the past on 4th avenue near 86th street Bay Ridge

This is the kind of food all the street vendors in Manhattan TRY to serve, but can't. When you have that hungry place in your stomach while out shopping on 86th street, turn the corner and stop in for a falafel or (even better) a chicken shawarma. Few tables, so you might not find a place to sit, but the... More

A friend took me to have a chicken shawarma. I went nuts! That thing is AMAZING! I brought my wife...she thinks so too ;] I order it with hummus. It is a treat and good for you too. It's even better than the shawarma from the ZAGAT rated Tanoreen. I'd be interested to hear from someone who disagrees.

Fish dinner is 2 fish. I am going here 18 years, fish dinner is always 5 fishes. Manager tells me prices are up, I told him if he had told me, I would have gotten chicken. RIP-OFF JOINT. DIRTY, NO PLACE TO WASH. AND NOW High prices for fried whitefish take out, not salmon served on white tablecloths. Karam has... More

Little place in Brooklyn but one of the best in the area especially with Shawerma chicken. There are few seats but would not count on it. Overall recommend.

This quite neighborhood place had an amazing shawarma and falafel. The mixed meat shawarma was seasoned and cooked very well. It taste like home cooking. I would recommend it for a late night snack, when heading back from a night of fun in the city.

Great location, FANTASTIC FOOD, great people! They remember my face every time I go there, and immediately gets my order for me. Very fast, and the prices are fair for the quality. I love the roasted chicken! Hard working people, and definitely deserving of their success. Love you Karam !
