I LOVE MURRAY'S – I'm so glad this place is here, it's my favorite spot for lunch. The staff is always so so sweet. The falafel sandwich is AWESOME. I can't get enough. It's a little cramped and sometimes we can't get a table, but take out is just as good! Can't go wrong here.
Best falafel anywhere - tasty, fresh ingredients, and nice-sized portions – I'd recommend Murray's to just about anyone - when I got inside, Murrays approached me and told me to "have a ball" - in this case, a free falafel ball. I was immediately sold - this is the best falafel in NYC. You'll like just about everything on the menu and at these prices you can afford to taste just about anything.
Best Wrap I Ever Had! – I was in the neighborhood and was looking for a place to grab a quick bit. So I decided to come here. What a delight!!! I had the best wrap I've ever had in my life. It was a falafel ball (2) with lettuce, tomato, turkish smear and hummus. They give u tanihi sauce on the side and if you like spicy, they give u this green sauce, yummy,yummy! It was so tasty and huge, especially for my size and appetite. The menu is simple but interesting. If your into this type of food, then this is your spot. The place itself is nothing special, definitely a take out place but they have tables to sit down. I usually don' t hang out this neighborhood but if you happen to be strolling around and looking for a quick, tasty meal, then this is your spot!! I had a lemonade with my wrap and it was good too. I will definitely return!!! Thanks Murray!!
The service is every bit as good as the food. – This place has only been around for about a year but it is already one of the top places for falafel in the city. Haven't tried every thing on the menu but what I have tried has been very good. Especially the falafel, hummus, kafta and shwarma. The owner is a delightfully friendly guy and will sometimes hand out free falafels to people waiting in line for an order.
Great food Super friendly and affordable – This is a really great place for quick, cheap bite to eat. Great food and the guys behind the counter are really nice. Great Falafel and Hummas. The chicken soup is good too. Hihghly recommended if you are in the neighborhood. Murrays is now in my neighborhood restaurant rotation.
Great Food for Inexpensive Prices – One of my friends recommended i try murrays and i'm glad i did. The food is soo cheap! there's a huge menu and plenty to choose from. I tried the falafel (their specialty) and some schwarma - both were great. The food is really fresh too and so i felt healthy when i finished my meal, not heavy like at other restaurants.
the service is also very friendly - try it.
Fresh but bland – The workers here are very friendly, but slow. The food is fresh (and Kosher, if that matters to you) but extremely BLAND. I had to dump tahini, hot sauce, and salt on every dish I ordered (the hummus, falafel, shawarma). To their credit, the hot sauce is quite good. They have a nicely rounded menu, so you're sure to find something to order, but everything is so flavorless.
