Moustache is a trendy Middle Eastern eatery in the East Village. It's a great falafel alternative if you're sick of the regular stuff at Mamoun's. The pita is baked fresh but the star of the menu is the ouzi. It's a puff pastry stuffed with chicken, aromatic basmati rice, vegetables, topped with tangy tzatziki.

good food, careless service – The food is pretty decent for the price. The server was very indifferent. The waiter was only good at asking if we wanted more alcohol. He wouldn't clear the plates, provide more water etc.

Best place in town for middle eastern food – I don't usually write reviews for restaurants but I saw 2 awful reviews that I HAD to respond to. What the heck were they talking about???? I've been a customer at this restaurant for ten years and I never had a bad experience once! the food is top notch -healthy and fresh, just the way I like it, and the staff very friendly. The only con I can say about the place is that sometimes the place is so crowded, the service can be on the slower side. But what the heck, it's well worth the wait. And you CAN't beat the prices for the quality you get. Unsanitary?? if that was the case dude(ett), the place wouldn't have been around for 20 odd years (and still going strong by the way, they just opened a 3rd location in east harlem I've been told). So to those fools who wrote the nasty comments, I wonder, are you from a competitor? My favorite items on the menu: the Ouzi and all the delicious pitzas. And yeah, the loomi drink is an incredible blend of tart, bitter sweet. A must try.

Great, affordable Middle Eastern food – Awesome place. I keep coming back for the food. I especially like their ground lamb pitza -the spices are 'just right' and it comes on a very thin crust. The decor is simple; there is a small courtyard in the back which I prefer to the seating in the front. Thus, I find it to be a great choice for a casual dinner/lunch.

Avoid like the plague! – This place served as an awful experience from the minute I walked in the door. We were seated against an open heater that burned my arm (a useless heater at that as the place was freezing).

Our waiter knew absolutely nothing about the wine menu and kept telling us they didn't have what was on there. We then just ordered soda and water, which he didn't bring over. Instead we saw him in the back eating a pizza and putting his hands all over everything.

When the food finally did arrive, it wasn't what we had ordered. The waiter didn't have time to properly articulate our order, but he did have time to stuff his face with his own food while handling customers food and beverage. It makes me ill to think about it. We left the restaurant.

Awful service, awful experience and an unsanitary facility. I'm surprised it hasn't been shut down yet. There are lots of great restaurants in the area - avoid this one (I can't imagine it would pass an inspection anyhow).

My boyfriend and i went for a simple dinner which ended up to be a horrid experience. We were constantly ignored by the waitstaff and we waited 40 minutes to get a falafel sandwich. After 30min, the manager came by and we said we had seen no sign of the food we had ordered. His response was sarcastic and rude. When we were ready to leave we asked for the check, which didnt arrive either. Incredible. So finally we walked up to the manager and paid him what we owed without tip. As we walked out of the restaurant we heard the manager swearing at us. It was an absolutely awful experience. The service is terrible and the staff is rude.

pull it together man – i wouldn't visit mr. moustache if i had a subsequent appointment to keep, as the wait staff seems often frazzled and surprised that you might require some additional service performed, like say the delivery of the check. but if you can operate with that limitation, the food has a good taste and comes at a nice price point.

This food made my day – I had lunch here yesterday and ordered the ouzie. It was the best lunch I have had in a long time.. fluffy fresh pastry filled with rice vegetables and chicken. I have been here many times and always loved it. Now after eating this I will have to come back way more often. This part of 10th st has unexpectedly become my favorite east village block.

Great Food...Fresh Pita – I used to eat felafel made with regular pita bread...the kind they serve at street stands and such. Moustache makes their own fresh pita for the felafel. Its fantastic. I can't eat the other kind anymore...I'm spoiled. So, while its an exaggeration to say that a restaurant changed your life...this one really did change my eating habits forever...

Great food with great value – The pitas are amazingly fresh, and their appetizers are delicious.

Customer service is a little slow.

If you're looking for a down to earth place, no frills, great food, reasonably priced - this is the place to go.

Dark Ambient Cool – Have been to Moustache many many times with friends and my wife and it has never failed to thrill me. The ambience in the front of the restaurant is dark and cool with candles placed on bronze colored metallic tables at night, exposed brick, a big old mirror, wooden exterior with lots of glass windows and wood floors. The food is always great and the kitchen, with a big roaring oven fire going in plain view of the customers, is a groovy touch. Try the Turkish beer and the chicken pitza... it's out of this world. I think the garden decor should be updated to look as arty as the inside, but other than that it's a great place to bring friends or a date.
