Taim serves up delicious falafel sandwiches and in different styles/sauces. It's slightly pricier than some of the neighboring falafel/Mediterranean joints, but the ingredients are fresh and the taste is worth it.

Being Israeli, I’m picky about my middle eastern food and this place did not disappoint. It’s a hole in the wall with only room for a total of 6-7 seats inside and out. Totally worth it!

The falafel platters here are delicious and generous. It’s a tiny place, a hidden gem, and packed like sardines. Be prepared to wait 20+ minutes and check inside for your order if waiting outside. We thought they would bring it out and after waiting 30...More

I went here to get some take away lunch. I got the green falafel pita. And although it didnt look too appatizing, it tasted good. Staff was friendly too.

Very small place, 5 people behind the counter, 3 high chairs facing out and a bench out doors. The air conditioner leaks on you when you walk in or out but the vegetarian food is worth it. The servers are nice and friendly and the...More

We discovered Taim totally by accident. We wondered in to try the falafel balls. They offer two types, so we ordered the sampler. There is the yellow one and the green one. Both are heavily fried and flavor just okay. It's not a bad choice...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

Taïm is the love child of husband and wife team, Chef Einat Admony and Stefan Nafziger. In 2005, homesick for the favorite street food of Tel Aviv, they heard of a tiny store front available on quiet Waverly place and decided to open their own falafel shop. Relying on her years of international cooking experience as well as her roots, Einat created a menu centered around street food with a gourmet twist. The freshness and quality of the ingredients coupled with Taïm's spin on traditional falafel flavors give new meaning to the concept of fast food.
