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

Very nice, small and cosy place in the big Market. 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

If you are in the Old City and want hummus, this is your place. Simple and delicious. Prices are a plus. I went for Hummus w/ Chickpeas (18 NIS) and might return to try Hummus w/ Pine Nuts (23NIS). Warning: The green pepper accompanying the dish is VERY HOT.

Many people will rate this place as the best Hummus in Israel. It is for sure my favorite. Excellent fast service and they also have a new and more fancy spot on the other side of the alley. But we prefer the old and more authentic location though... Everything is delicious - first the Hummus (with hummus beans for me),... More

The menu is rather limited (and not big on meat) but the quality of the servings is very high. Don't expect a big, full-featured restaurant, this is more like a small (30 seats?) hummus cafe... Ate there several times and it was equally good every time. And it is clean and proper, the owner clearly takes pride in his place... More

This is a small, noisy, constantly busy slice of "classic" Middle Eastern food at it's best. The wait (not bad) for a table is well worth it, as everything on the menu is great. Definitely have the hummas with pine nuts and the falafel. One of my best meals at a price that can't be beat

I don't want to be unfair with all other restaurants in Jerusalem (even though I didn't try all of them), but I feel VERY comfortable recommending Lina Restaurant. They are kind of hummus specialized place and due to their location (close to Via Dolorosa), I am pretty sure that you're going to walk in front of it several times. Go... More

Falafel was the best I ever had! Hot, crispy on the outside and flavorful and soft on the inside. Hummus with fuul with delicious (portion was big!). Seating on two floors. Quick service. Affordable!

We loved the hummus at Lina, the best we've had in Israel and Palestine. The olive oil had the real bite of authentic 100% virgin oil.
