REAL hummus

Real middle eastern hummus and pita - like nowhere in NYC! Served in a bowl with all the frills, as intended.

Always a great meal...we often will drive there, pack up dinners to bring home to eat, and visit Levain for cookies to have later on for dessert.

A few steps down into this "hole in the wall" fabulous place. Great service. Nice atmosphere. And wonderful food. Besides the fact that I don't like or eat hummus -- you must go if you are in the area. My wife loved it so much she want back a second time in the 3 days in the city. Great soups... More

Enjoyed the flavorful healthy options. We had hummus, couscous, cauliflower, olives but the take away for me was the homemade mint ice tea. I love ice teas and this one of the best I ever had. It is a small and loud space so not the best option to meet a friend to catch up. Friendly and helpful service!

A very interesting and cozy place near the Central Park and the Museum of Natural History. The food is awesome. We had the Falafel sandwich.

This place is very suggestive, very good hummus! Just try the 4 different plates, the eggplant and falafel sandwiches!! Awesome! Just go and eat! And last but not least...prices are low, more or less 10 usd each plates!!' We'll be back...

We tried the Hummus Place on 4/25/15. Hummus was super-whipped and not too tasty. Felafel sandwich was underwhelming- felafels were green? I always thought felafels were brownish. Sandwich itself filled with hummus, not tahini sauce- soggy. Wife's eggplant (in eggplant sandwich) greasy and not appetizing. We might give it a try on a future visit but were disappointed on this... More

Best stuffed grape leaves I have ever had in my life. EVER. The hummus, Baba ghanoush (eggplant & tahini) and tzatziki were all amazing. The mint iced tea was delicious. The falafel was very good, but next time I'd just stick with the 3 for $12 appetizers special. Would definitely visit again!

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?
