My wife and I went here for lunch. I had their hummus platter with the four different toppings. They were all excellent. My wife tried some kind of vegetable dish, but mostly she enjoyed sharing my hummus. I guess in a hummus place one should stick to hummus. Also, the service is efficient and friendly and the prices are very... More

My husband and I left NYC a couple of years ago to move to South Florida and we've been craving Hummus Place ever since. We flew in yesterday and stopped here on the way to our hotel. It was as great as we remembered. We had the Hummus Place Platter, which comes with all four of their toppings (tahini, mushrooms,... More

I hope the good reviews won't make the place crowded and cause the to increase their prices. However, the humus is great and prices are really cheap, esp. for New York. The server was the best server I every met, no kidding. He helped us choose the dishes and advised us against taking two dishes, saying that it will be... More

We love such tastes much from our main land. I found this place before we come to NYC and put it on my wish list already. During our vacation, we found a few times to visit for lunch and dinner. Foods are good, especially humus and falafel. We ordered both but it was too much for two. Each falafel has... More

If you're originally from the middle east, or would like to get a taste, this hummus here is really good. Enjoy!

We were a little mystified with how we should order and eat, but what we did order was beautiful. Fresh, hot, simple and tasty. Extremely busy which is a good sign, but on the other hand makes for a noisy and crowded experience. Not a place for a romantic dinner but definitely worthwhile for value.

I thought the hummus and falafel in Israel were great, but this little place on Amsterdam certainly meant we didn't have to travel that far for tasty Israeli treats. The menu isn't extensive, but stick with one of the varieties of hummus as well as ordering falafel - they were the best we've ever had. This is a very small... More

This place is adorable! Small inside but in a homey way. Booths line the walls and tables fill the middle. The prices are extremely reasonable and you can mix and match your favorite hummus and Mediterranean dishes. Great for sharing and the staff are lovely. This place is popular so the line goes in waves but it never feels crowded... More
