Stopped in at Hamsa by chance for lunch after a tour guide suggested humus in the Jewish quarter as an option for a light bite. We were not expecting the portions to be as big as they were and we were blown away by the...taste and quality of the food. Hamsa was busy but the waitress made an effort to find us a table outside facing the Jan Karski bench memorial. Our friends have neighbours visiting Krakow soon and we are recommending Hamsa as a must visit place.More

Excellent food and atmosphere. The hot chocolates were wonderful, as was the hummus and pita. It was a nice respite from the cold outside. So kind and friendly.

Loved it! Great place to come for lunch with friends, lovely atmosphere, staff and food. We liked it so much that we came back for brunch the next day (which was equally good). I will definitely return next time I am in Krakow!

Really enjoyed this restaurant. Lots of different rooms to sit, attentive staff and some of the tastiest food in Krakow. If you’re in the old Jewish Quarter, it’s a must. Don’t be put off by the exterior - looks like it’ll be a chain restaurant....Not how it feels inside at all!More

This restaurant is awesome, it looks super nice and it offers a nice choice of dishes also vegan/vegetarian. If you can, try to sit in the inner garden, which is really unique. It's located in the center of a the jewish area where many "jewish"...restaurant are. Their dishes are nicely served, staff speaks English. Taste wise...it is not really Israeli, but it's close to it :) and still very good. Please note that this restaurant is not Kosher (although it appears searching for kosher places in Krakow).More

The restaurant is located very central in the Kazimierz district of Krakow. Sitting outdoor allows to observe the dynamic situation around the place where it is located. The restaurant offers a variety of food but is clearly specialised in Humus related stuff and the outcome...is great. We started of with a mezze of humus and had Israeli beef skewers as main course. All food was very tasty and the service friendly. Have a Hamsa Radler as a drink to get refreshedMore

Restaurant is quite big. You can sit either inside or outside or even in some half open space. Prices are rather high but please consider their sets. We have taken one of them for 2 people. Beer was quite expensive as well. However service very...kind and all was tasty. I recommend especially falafel. One of best I have eaten.More

Lamb was prepared and spiced perfectly both in tagine and in kebab. The food is great also in delivery so we encourage everyone to order. Hope to visit you soon personally for breakfast.
