Best Hummus in town?

It was pretty good... not sure it's the best, but it's definitely on the better side of good. The falafels were also pretty good here. A good choice if you are in the old city and need something to eat.

The place was alright but nothing special. They serve fresh-squeezed pomegranate juice that was wonderful but the hummus seemed like store-bought hummus - not the quality I expect from most hummus restaurants in Israel! I had heard this place was famous but I wasn't impressed.

Three of us stopped in here for a late lunch on the recommendation of our tour guide. We went to the newer location, which is a bit more roomy. The menu is simple and short, just what you would expect for a hummus place. We ordered tabbouleh salad, felafel balls, and hummus with pine nuts. We had fresh, hot pita... More

Was here a few years ago and had great memories of the place, but this time was a bit disappointed. They had only two types of hummus - plain and with roasted pine nuts - and they were tasty but not as fresh as I remembered. The salads and falafel were great and the pomegranate juice was freshly squeezed. If... More

Short menu - but all the right stuff - Hummus with chickpeas, tabouleh - very fresh and nice. HOT peppers on the side. Very good. Little room to eat upstairs and bathroom up there too.

I've tried many humus places in Israel - this is the best one! I usually choose the most simple dish of hot humus with chickpeas on top, because it's just heavenly, but the dishes with the extras are also great. I recommend everyone who goes to Jerusalem to go to Lina, even if they didn't intend to go to the... More

I had: hummus- good but I've eaten better in Jerusalem, fool (warm dip made from fava beans)- eaten for the first time but totally fell in love, it was the best choice for sure, arabic (cucumber&tomato) salad and pita of course (unlimitted amount). We also got some peppers, pepper dip-... More
