“Delicious Hummus and Fresh Pommegranate Juice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2011

My cousin recommended this tiny restaurant in the Old City of Jerusalem right next to the The Third Station. Ask anyone for the Lina Restaurant and they'll direct you there. The Hummus is freshly made and quite tasty. I had it garnished with pine nuts though there are a couple of variations, plain or with foul (beans). There are a couple of kinds of juices including my favorate, tangy freshly squeezed pommegranate juice.

“One of the best Hummus in Israel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2011

In Israel hummus is a very series issue and every few years there is a survey for the "Best hummus places in Israel". Lina mostly get to the "Top10".
Other good options are the Salad ( with Tehina or Labane) and the Labane.
Pay Attention that for Arabs hummus is kind of breakfast or lunch so get there accordingly.

“The Best Hummus in Jerusalem... the World! SERIOUS!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2009

If you love hummus and want to eat hummus made fresh and made the way perfect hummus is supposed to be made then go to Lina Restaurant in the old city. The hummus here surpasses that served at Abu Shukri restaurant... which is good, but just not this good!
