Stopped for a quick snack in Greenwich. As a shameless carnivore, I'm not easily impressed with vegetarian food, but the falafels were incredible. Very cheap and well worth a visit if you're in the area and need a quick refuel.

My wife and I had a terrific lunch at Taim! We tried a couple of their falafel options - they were great! The place is small but it was very good.

I tend to think all falafel is good, unless it's especially bad. However, this is a special falafel. It's moist and the sides are delicious, too. I've gone on a falafel tour of NYC's best spots, and this is the absolute best.

Outside of Dubai, this is the best falafel place I've found. Other places that sell falafels lack the taste and crunch, but Taim nails it. It's a tiny place but very welcoming. Fast, delicious, and cheap. I will definitely be visiting again.

I ate here last time I was in New York and still think about it - the falafel is incredible, with delicious fresh salad and a tasty pitta. The filling doesn't fall out when you're walking around either which is great!

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.

Read all about Taim's "best falafel in the city" reports and blogs before deciding to visit it and we were not let down a bit! You can easily share a platter between 2 people and order a sample of the other falafel flavors available, trust...More

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
