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

This is humus, tahini and felafel heaven in a tiny, basement cafe on Amsterdam Avenue between 75th and 74th Streets. Its always crowded but the turnover is high so there is generally not a long time to wait before you're seated at one of the tightly packed little tables. This is an almost entirely vegetarian cafe with excellent and freshly... More

This is a wonderful, quaint little restaurant which was very near our hotel (Lucerne). The hummus platter was wonderful as were the side order beets w/ walnuts. I highly recommend both. Stay away from the sangria; it is based on either soda water or Sprite and was truly terrible. Stick with wine. I honestly hope they just 'forgot' to add... More

We decided to eat something more healthful before going to the Levain Bakery. Excellent hummus and salads. It is just a fun neighborhood eatery.

After returning from Israel last year, I had a hankering for an eggplant pita. All the usual falafel joints didn't measure up, but then i went to this wonderful little basement restaurant. Casual, efficient, with a friendly staff. And the hummus is smooth and creamy. If you want, it can also be nuclear spicy, so just make your desires known.... More

To be honest, I don't eat hummus as I'm allergic to chickpeas. My Israeli boyfriend, however, had been convinced he'd never eat good hummus again unless he visited Israel. Then I took him here. I read reviews and hoped he would enjoy it as he's had other hummus in the states and was left extremely disappointed. When he tasted their... More
