“Top notch Hummesaria”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

In the heart of the old city but not hard to find.
Top quality hummesaria.
Seating upstairs or down.
Spotlessly clean.

“The best Hummus (IMHO)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

I tried the Hummus all over Jerusalem - but this was the best. The hummus with pine nuts was just incredible, as was the salad. It can get very crowded at lunch-time - get there early or late (by 1:30pm, it was easy to get in).

“The best Humus in Jerusalem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

Simple authentic restaurant serving only Humus within the Old-City. Excellent fresh Humus of unsurpassed quality. There is a lot of competition but they probably have the best Humus. Don't expect comfortable seating or space. Eat enjoy and go!

“Lina is Lovely”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

Located in the Christian Quarter just west of station 8 on Via Dolorosa or if you're coming from the Jaffa Gate head north on Christian Quarter street and then turn right on El-Khanqa. It is a very small restaurant with 5 tables but extra seating upstairs. We just asked the server to bring us what he thought was best. Within minutes He brought our party of 7 an arabic salad, 4 different bowls if humus and 2 plates of onions with pickles. You can watch the hummus being made fresh right in the dining area. My favorite was the one with roasted pine nuts and the fresh warm pita kept coming until we were done eating. Our total bill with tea and sodas came to 135 shekels. A wonderful experience at an incredible value.

Best Humus (try that with pine nuts). Hidden in the old city, NOT at the Christian st., but 200 m away.
Very prompt service, great value for money
