They have a great selection of mediterranean dishes. The hummus is really delicious and they have different types. I have also tried a chicken+rice dish (cannot recall the name) and it was very good as well. Too bad you cannot drink alcohol if you sit outside. We'll be back!

Tried Oren's Hummus at the recommendation of a colleague. Got take-out for lunch. The place was very crowded, but the wait wasn't too long.Tried Mozy's Rice Bowl. It was very tasty -- well-seasoned, and the serving was quite generous.

This place is always packed and people will wait happily for a table because it's well worth the wait!!!!! We tried once and had two hungry children so couldn't wait too long but the second time we arrived "early" 11:45 - for lunch - and just beat a BIG line! They did not lie - the food was yummy yummy...

I love 2 things at this place. . Their falafel sandwich and their spicey sauces .. Their humus is not the best I had but its definitely the best in palo alto. Its a good place for a light lunch or dinner.

The food was fresh and flavorful and portion size was good. The temperature inside was sweltering so take a table outside if available. Desserts were ok.

We got lucky and got seated right before noon - it got very crowded shortly thereafter. Two kids split a chicken rice bowl that they cleaned up, and my daughter got the hummus with beef - so much hummus! We had enough leftover for one lunch and two snacks! I had the Romanian eggplant, whose roasted flavor really came through,... More

While the food was great, it is after all only hummous so its not fine dining!! So, a couple of things - I found both types of chilli they put on... More
