“Fresh and fabulous” falafel is “the really real thing” at chef Einat Admony’s “hole-in-the-wall” Israeli joints, where “glorious” eats at “gentle prices” are “a vegetarian’s dream come true” ; they’re both “fast” and “satisfying” , though the West Village original’s “vest-pocket” space means it’s “best to take away.”

All the 5 stars reviews are right, the food and service is excellent. Why 3 stars? 3 stars because the deep fryer girl has a ponytail touching her thighs and that pony tail needs a miracle not to lose hairs in the wrong places (your food possibly). She's turning and turning in that tight space and her hair is clearly brushing the falafel tray under the heat lamp. Ain't that the biggest oversight in a kitchen? This is coming from a guy that doesn't mind hair, my cat is on the table sampling my food every time I eat. My issue is with a manager who doesn't care about hair in my food, and most likely doesn't care about other sanitary issues that are harder to spot. If I had to choose between great food with hair and bad food that's clean, I'd choose great food every time, but the obvious choice here should be a hair net nonetheless.

Almost a year later I still have dreams of this place. So simple, no table service, fast presentation and exquisite flavors. I cannot wait to return.

The name says it all, very tasty. I like the green falafel better than the red.
