Standard Middle East fare, but always fresh and tasty. Had the chicken schwarma with pita that was quite good.

I was unsure about what I should order and the cashier was very patient and helpful. I enjoyed the natural sodas and the sweet potato fries were excellent.

It's a small place. The name can be misleading as this is not a halal restaurant. Ordered falafel. They were the worst I ever had. The greasiest, blandest felafel anywhere in the world was here.

Amir's is one of my must visit whenever I am in NYC. The falafel platter or sandwich are a must try. Friendly and fast service. Great for lunch.

This place is great, some of the best falafel I've ever had. Great egg salad, and awesome fries. At lunch you can get a falafel, side, and a drink for like 6 bucks. And they have draft beers too!
