As Newsday has reported awhile back, they do have the best falafel on Steinway Street, and the other items are also fresh and delicious, the fresh lemonade is an authentic treat too. I've lived in the Middle East and I know what I am talking about. This is a family-owned ethnic establishment of the type that used to be common in NYC before commercial rents drove most of them out, so reviewers expecting trendy Manhattan-style decor or Olive Garden style 'corporate' service should stay away. I suspect one of the prior reviewers here never considered the possibility that the waitress was not talkative because she doesn't speak English! That said, if you appreciate Lebanese food and small family businesses, by all means try El Rawsheh.
Pros: Authentic, fresh food and authentic atmosphere
Cons: Not fancy or trendy, some servers don't speak English well if that is a problem
