Have a passion for hummus and had heard so much about this one that we had to try it. Big disappointment ...granted it was mid afternoon but was the only person there. Server was as surely as they come. Hummus and felafel was mediocre ...not even close to Abu Hassan in TVL.

Stopped in here for the world famous hummus. Felt rather unwelcome when we entered. Food was okay but wouldn't say it is the best hummus.

Best hummus we had in Israel! We had the hummus with toasted pine nuts, garbanzo beans with tahini, light fluffy felafel, and a great salad. Interesting vegies (onions and hot, hot chilis). Complete lunch for 4 people for 60 shekels. And the bathroom was clean.

You really need to be here between 8 and 4 -- can be busy at lunch, but there is room across the street. On the Via Dolorosa on the edge of the Christian Quarter. Basic menu card, responsive service, but not more than you ask for. You come here for the hummus and falafel -- not atmosphere or anything else.... More

Great little place. Wonderful food at wonderful prices. Definitely an authentic sort of place to go. The humus and fresh fruit juices are highly recommended. We found out salads too acidic to enjoy fully. But otherwise everything was quite tasty.

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.
