Yummy spot any time

Lunch and dinner options are all good. Warm spot on a winter day. Always friendly and fast. The eggplant is a fave. And who can say no to falafel?

We go to the Hummus Place every time we come to NYC. I love the eggplant sandwich (Sabich) and my husband loves the Shakshuka. The hummus is authentic and as good as anything you get in the Mideast because the people making it are Israeli.

I've lived in NYC for 6 months now and I eat out 3-4 nights per week... And I have to say if you like fresh, tasty, filling brunches that you don't have to feel guilty or feel like you had a "cheat meal" after, you need to go to this place... I now go every weekend so you'll see me... More

This little eatery is a delight! The food is well prepared and tasty. The hummus is creamy and delicious. We all enjoyed our meals immensely and the service was efficient and friendly. Highly recommended but be warned, it is a popular place so you might have to wait for a table!

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

Neighborhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theater performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
