Very good hummus with pine and good taboule as well as tasty falafel. It is very well served for a very low price. You can eat enough for 50 shekels. Try the pomegranate jus which is fresh and good. The service is so-so but ok.

I travelled in Egypt, Jordan, Israel, and Turkey on this trip. If you are in Jerusalem you can not pass this place without eating $4 of the best hummus ever!

Lina was recommended to us by a local and as we happened to pass by it, so we dropped in. In general I find hummus a bit bland, simply not my cup of tea. But the hummus with pine nuts in Lina with fresh pita-bred and some pickles was really delicious. Could eat it again!

I am always curious about Middle Eastern food, especially... the famous hummus. I tried different hummus from a supermarket in the neighbourhood where I live. But none was close to the delicious taste of Lina's hummus. It is smooth, no bitter after-taste, very suitable for my liking. Topped with roasted pine nuts is the best! The falafel is so...so..good.

We were 5 people and we ordered Hummus (great) + Greek yogurt - labneh (great) + salad (great) and Falafel (tasty but cold). In a Hummus place the most important thing is the Hummus and the second is the Pita bread, that i must say was dry. So my overall experience was average. If you go over there - ask... More
