Need a Scwarma FIX

Hey Chowhounders,

I've been craving a good Schwarma fix since returning to NYC after being gone a long time.
I tried Ali Baba (MacDougal St) and it wasn't as good as I remember it---it has been more than a decade.
After reading all the hoopla about how great Mamoon's (MacDougal) is I was let down.
I've been to Jerusalem on B'way at about 105 and while in the past it was good, the night I went recently was lousy. The regular guy wasn't there, it seems two younger men were in control. The pita fell apart, the lamb was beyond greasy and the sandwich was not very flavorful. Two days later I got the feeling that the place's hygiene standards had slipped somewhat.

Is there some other place you would recommend? Thanks
