No service. No decor. Very few seats. But the hummus is the best. You can have simple Hummus; Hummus with Ful or Masabacha which I like the best. Best option is take away: Take your hummus in a cup to go and walk for 5 min to eat it overlooking the beautifull sea.

Abu Hasan's humus is like a cream and you should enjoy it with the slices of onion. If you go for breakfast you don't need to eat until the evening.

Great hummus in this very typical restaurant. The felafel and the pita bread are excellent too. Prices are OK and in line with what you eat.

Well this is one of the 3 best places of hummus in Israel, so tastewise this place is a must but should know that the place is heavily crowded and very loud.

I was recently in Tel-Aviv and was in a gallery talking to the owner. I told him I was going to nearby Jaffa that day and he sai "You have to go to Abu-Hassan...best hummus in Israel). I told my guide that someone had recommended a hummus place in Jaffa and he said promptly Abu Hassan. Great little family place... More

Abu hassan's Masabaha is amazing. The best I've ever had. The regular hummos is good, but you can find better. The dishes are not expensive and you get great value for your money. On rush hours you might have to stand in line for 10 - 20 minutes (Fridays are the most packed) but it's sure worth it. On rush... More

Before you try any fancy-schmancy places in Tel-Aviv, and there are a few nice ones, treat yourself to the best dish in Israel _ Abu hasan's Houmus. No frills - just 3-4 kinds of houmus dishes, warm, with hot-sour souce, onions to chew on, and pita bread - and all for less then 5$ - a must stop

Abu Hassan is a crowded little place where you can get one of Tel Aviv's delicacys for only 20 shekel. People there seem to argue about if this is only the best hummus in Tel Aviv or even the best in all of Israel.

I've eaten here many times. And I eat humus at any new place because I just love it. For me Abu has an is the best. Yes you will wait in line, and they serve only humus. No salad or anything else. Only fresh onions. But if you love humus and you are in Jaffa then you must try it... More
