It's name precedes itself so I went with pretty high expectations and was blown away. Ask anyone in Israel or who has visited Israel and they will know of this place. I lived in the country for just shy of a year, went to tons of hummus restaurants all over but none is equal to this majestic restaurant. Beginning with... More

My weekly breakfast companion recommended that we have breakfast at Said's Hummus Restaurant, and so we went. The restaurant is located in the market in the old city of Akko. I am told that the place fills up during the day, but at about 10:00 in the morning, there was plenty of seating and a very impressive wait staff of... More

This is a must place to eat at for authentic experience of old arab market and town of Acre. Walking through the market and old town is like being in Aladin tale. The restaurant only serves hummus so dont be turned away by long line because it moves very very quickly, people just have hummus and pita and leave. If... More

We paid 30 shekels (about $7.75) for the two of us (not including any tip, as no one else seemed to be leaving one) for an endless pile of pita bread, huge servings of excellent hummus and olive oil, plates of olives, tomatoes, pickles, peppers, and onions, and glasses of cold water. (I think the only other thing to order... More

Hummus Said is the best meal in my life. I've had it 50 times and I say that after each meal. Hummus Said is amazing. The hummus is tart, tender, and tasteful. The pita is warm and fresh. I recommend the chetzi (half) mshausha and chetzi hummus. PRO TIP: Hummus said is ₪15 per person for unlimited hummus. Ask for... More

Said Hummus is arguably one of the most popular spots in Akko, and it topped out list of "Things To do" in Akko. At the entrance, a guide was talking to a bunch of tourists, explaining how the place is an "Institution in Itself" .. Needless to say that our expectations were quite high. Service was quick. Hummus arrived and... More

I'm not qualified to say whether this is indeed the best hummus in Israel, but I can certainly say it must take some beating. The hummus was excellent, the musabaha sensational. Clearly a great instituation, it's no-frills, fast service, very cheap, bustling, and serves generous portions. Lunch here will keep you fueled for many an hour. NB you can take... More

When strolling Akko market, we came a long a huge line with a lot of people. Apparently, they were all in line to Said's hummus which they swear is the best. I don't know, I didn't try, some people from our group did manage to get in and enjoyed it.
