Foursquare Tips

  • order the combo over rice with white sauce and a little bit of the red sauce
  • Known for the best halal in the city, we love to come here for the chicken and gyro combo with white sauce. The portions are huge, so don't feel obligated to finish the whole thing!
  • For a shorter line and even better food, visit their 52nd Street & Sixth Avenue cart during the day--beats the original.
  • If the line is too long go to the stand across the street. Same company same taste! It's a pyschological thing why the one cart has a longer line than the other. :P
  • The BEST Halal in the city. The line is worth the wait!
  • Ask for a lid and get it to go.
  • Greatest spot in NYC after 2am. BEST EVER.
  • When visiting, make sure you're at the cart with the yellow / golden plastic bags which say "we are different." Be ware of daytime imposter cart on the south west corner!
  • I tip this everytime nobody listens. The guys across the street are the same company! Just go across the street - same great food.
  • Don't get too overzealous with the red sauce - you WILL regret it!
  • every1 knows how long the lines are & how much (or little) hot sauce to use. but the best advice, imo, is this : get a cab, ask the driver to double park & to buy your food.[they] prioritize cabbies.
  • Get the Chicken Platter with a decent amount of white sauce. Go very easy on the red sauce if you don't eat very hot foods and use a lot if you love hot food like I do.
  • Best way to end a good night in NYC!!! CAUTION: Red sauce is SPICY. You were warned.
  • Try the chicken and rice
  • For late night cravings, grab the chicken and lamb over rice.
  • Beware of the red sauce! The tiniest amount goes a long way.
  • Too much hot sauce will light your ass on fire...literally.
  • best street meat in NYC hands down, worth the wait in line!
  • El MEJOR puesto callejero de NYC. Vale la pena los 30 minutos de espera para pedir la comida.
