  • Might have just found my new favorite place for lunch!
  • I cannot even begin to describe how delicious the food is here. There is a reason that at lunch the line wraps around the block. Chicken shawarma platter with tabbouleh and hummus is my favorite.

  • LOOOVE Omar's! There's usually always a queue for lunch but it moves quickly - just be sure to know what you want when you get to the counter.
  • I got the shawarma platter with hummus and yogurt and it was delicious. The olive oil on top of the hummus is unique and amazingly tasty.
  • Falafels are amazing, hummus has a bit of a weird taste but are good nonetheless. Try the combo platters, they give you much more food for the price.
  • The line gets very long, get there before noon if you can
  • The Eggplant side dish is delish!

  • Best tapas restaurant in town! I absolutely loved the fish, martinis and great service. Thank you for letting me be apart of the tasting and the great tunes!
  • This is a gem of a food oasis in a Midtown desert. The platters are generous -- the falafel and hummus are sooooo divine! I am someone who used to live in the middle East and rarely find such quality.
