I ate dinner here this evening ($1520 HUF). I went to pay. I used 3 different cards and their machine wasn't working. I had to wait while he called the bank. Still not working. Then, rather than offer to let me go and have the meal on the house the staff member began arguing with me. Went to check that... More

It was a small food bar which is located in the city center (Kálvin tér area). Although the pita itself was quite cold, I loved almost everything inside of the sandwich I chose, especially they had pickles which I couldn't find at any other hummus/falafel places before in Budapest. The fried balls were crispy and well-seasoned just how I liked.... More

Right next to a Starbucks and in a beautiful plaza makes this a perfect stop to enjoy some quality hummus and falafel. We enjoyed a couple dishes here and the food was tasty and we left with a good experience.

Reasonably priced middle eastern food with lots of vegetarian options (falafel, hummus,labneh). Try the hummus with mushrooms and the eggplant (order via individual pieces). some in our group found the kebabs a bit dry but enjoyed the liver. Food was warm on arrival but got cold quickly, pita was just barely warm. Our waiter- didn't get his name- should be... More

If you were not looking for this tasty place it would pass you right by. Hummus Bar is surrounded by larger restaurants but...this is the place to go! It looks like a fast food type of joint, they do have take away, but it does have a quaint, sit down, open air eating area where you are served. The food... More

We had a pleasant meal here in the outdoor seating area - there isn't much room inside the restaurant itself. The young man who served us was very helpful, as we wanted to make adjustments to the menu options. He spoke English and was friendly and accommodating. The food was interesting and tasty - good hummus, with delicious vegetable and... More

Dear Krisztina, I think you are a little bit confused... we do not have laffa bread in our Egyetem branch, the only branch that serves laffa breads is at October 6. Not sure what wasn't available for your order, but i assure you 100% that whatever is on the menu can be ordered. hummusbar handmade, heartfelt More

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
