The pictures posted do not reflect how awsome this falafel are. Really, never tried anything better. Good variety, so if you go for the first time, you might need a minute to figure it out ;) First you can choose one of the 3 types...More

We have wanted to try the falafel here since watching the owner battle Bobby Flay on tv... Best falafel we've ever had - and very cool that there are different falafel flavors. The green was our favorite by far, but the harissa (red) and olive...More

Went to Taim having not been there for a few years. The standard of the food here has sadly declined and has become more expensive. The food used to be excellent. My dinner was notably unremarkable. I will stick to Mamoun's in east village, which...More

We have Taim catered to our office every now and then. Nothing about the food is appealing. DO NOT eat the falafel. It's a big ball of tasteless mush.

I got a very tasty sandwich at a good price. We didn't have to wait for long, and I especially appreciated the convenient order and payment process. There isn't much room to sit, however, but the space is smartly utilized.

The falafel and salads were amazing and the pom-lemonade was delicious. I highly recommend this place to everyone in the neighborhood....now all they need are more places to sit. I say take it to go....its well worth eating while you walk!

Stopped here while in Greenwich. I ordered the green falafel with s'rut. Amazing I love the pocket pita it comes in. Large portions and delicious.

Whenever we are in town my wife and I go here at least once for lunch. I always get a harissa falafel sandwich. My wife goes for the sabich. Their food is the best but the place is SMALL and seating can be an issue.

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you
