This is a small establishment, a few tables inside and more outside on the sidewalk. No charm or decoration here and the kitchen is open to the indoor dining space. The menu is limited, but the quality of the food is top notch! The Hummus is definitely the best in Haifa, the red lentil dish they include is fantastic. Service... More

I love the hummus and felafel here. I've been coming here for years. Nothing else comes close - and I've tried to like Said Hummus in Akko but it's far too oily for my taste and doesn't have the depth of flavour of this hummus. There's nothing fancy about Abu Shaker, it's a hole in the wall with a few... More

You know you are in a very special place when you are directed to sit down either inside or outside and the food starts coming without your having said a word. And if you look around at who is eating here, you can see that people from all walks of life are here. This is a 'family' restaurant insofar as... More

First of all, it's a hummus place, limited menu items. You can expect to have very creamy, tasty hummus from Abu Shaker, great price of a 40 shekel meal set comes with salad, hummus, meat and pitas.

A cheap, authentic place to taste the very best that hummus can get. No fancy chairs or polished tables, but it worth it. I'm there almost every week.

The place doesn't look fancy at all, and is a basic 'eatery', but the service is very friendly, and the hummus is one of the best of it's type. Hummus comes in many flavors. Abu Shaker's hummus is of the Galilee type - sweeter, with more Tahini and served slightly warm, with a side of freshly cut vegetables, and at... More

Very good humus, very cheap. Mostly crowded, service is very fast. A good and quick lunch in Haifa, worth a visit. Don't expect anything fancy :)

The place is small but very hospitable. The food is great ant always fresh. The kitchen is tinny but can deliver the goods. A very good value for your money.

I agree about the good atmosphere. I didn´t think the hummus was great. It tasted like mine when I tried a recipe that was supposed to be the best but really wasn´t. A matter of taste.
