  • Best falafel and shawarma gyro pita in NYC! Pickles and all the fixins great too.
  • get the falafel pita with everything, spicy. best I've ever had.
  • A small falafel plate is enough to feed you. Awesome food and Ezra is a lovely host.
  • Flat like a flying saucer, studded with extra sesame seeds for added crunch, and cooked long enough to not be mushy in the middle, Azuri Caf's falafel are generally regarded as the best in town.
  • Follow the rules, order and have your money ready. Keep the man happy and your falafel sandwich will be awesome.
  • Some of the best falafel in New York.
  • Get the Falafel large plate. Its a little bit of everything! What more could you ask for?
  • best lentil soup in the world!
  • Chicken schwarma is unbelievable
  • Good food, but not set up well for people to sit down. Also closes at 9pm sharp.
  • this place is bomb. order the falafel with everything.
  • I think the pita is made with whole wheat flour rather than white- gives it a nice bite and gives me the feeling that Azuri (the owner's last name) cares for my health
  • Best lunch in Hell's Kitchen, hands down. The falafel is the best I've had in NYC and everything it comes with (get the plate) is delicious, particularly the eggplant-based fixing. A+ hummus, too.
  • You cant go wrong with the shawarma or any of the flame-grilled kebabs, but the real forte of this place located in an obscure corner of Hells Kitchen is its vegetarian fare.
  • Delicious falafel platter with all of the fixings. The owner did seems bit frazzled by our presence.
  • The small falafel plate is definitely not small. Will fill you uo
  • A diamond in the rough. Falafel touched by God. Come in knowing what you want, they aren't going to wait to take your order.
  • The best! (But be nice to the folk behind the counter, or pay the price :)
  • Skip the falafel platter and go for the sandwich. Pricey compared to others around the city but legit, many toppings & great quality.
  • I've had falafel in Israel and this is better. Get the pita pocket with everything in it. Owner runs the show, don't give him any lip. Favorite Jew in HK
