    Great food. Very different from the other halal carts. "Big difference" Hospitable team. Friendly service. Very clean. I was very satisfied. I highly recommend it.

    Went here with my wife a few nights ago late at night. Person who prepared my food was rude and not friendly. I asked for extra white sauce and boy did I get extra. The man literally doused my plate with sauce rendering it to be almost inedible..

    Same food as the cart we all love but without the long line. Short walk from the subway. I've made it round trip from 168th street, food in hand, well within an hr. Decent service. Didn't visit the restroom so can't comment on that.

    Amazing food. You know it's good when you see the cops or fire dept. there.the red sauce is too hot for white people so be careful.

    They charge you extra for pretty much anything, even water from the soda machine. Portion sizes are super stingy compared to the original sidewalk location. I had to ask for extra white AND hot sauces, twice each! Also how do you call yourselves "Halal Guys" and not serve lamb gyro? Beef gyro was a subpar substitute.

    Get it with extra extra white sauce, small hit of the red sauce... thank me later. Really good chicken and rice, they do sub rice for salad:) :) :)

    I kept coming back every month, for 3 months, in hopes of a decent experience. Yet every month it worsened. The meat is always stale and greasy, they over-charge for a crappy portion, AND.... they charge .50 cents for a freaking packet of hot sauce, the same size as a soy/duck/hot mustard sauce you get at a Chinese restaurant! The food sucks, the employees are ridiculously conning, and prices are far beyond their service. Oh, last time I bought take out there, my husband and I had food poisoning.

    I think this is the best Halal in the city. They're open late, so it's convenient, but I prefer to go earlier in the day when the food is hot and fresh due to the demand. My favorite is the chicken, and it's got to have white sauce on it

    They don't fill out the platter the same way the Cart does. And you have to repeatedly tell the server to flood your plate with white sauce. I don't like to repeat!

    The food was great, traditional middle eastern food. I would recommend it to my friends the place to go to for healthy halaal food.
