Great little hummus restaurant in Christian Quarter in Jerusalem. Much Less expensive than those on the tour group route.

I had the lunch in Jerusalem in that place: people who work in, are not very friendly but the hummus was good and the restaurant is very typical.

People in Israel debate this, but many say this is the best hummus. It is certainly on my list. Get with the pine-nuts. A little hard to find…

But it was a bit sad to find out it is not as good as it used to be, maybe, due to lack of clients in this Covid 19 times, but hope it returns to its glory, hummus was so and so, as well as...the falafel, service is good and prompt.More

Correction.The group was not taken to Hotel Evropa.It is by some mistake that it has come up.I am sorry for that .It was most probably Lina restaurant where we had our lunch.My suggestion to provide choice of meal to group visitors was about this restaurant.

Lina is still the best Hummus restaurant in Jerusalem. it's a simple restaurant, no meat (I guess it's vegetarian), and only several variations of an home made Hummus, and one or two salads. I must say it's the only Hummus restaurant my children leave their...plates empty.More

We went there due to the reviews. But after visiting the restaurant, the hummus was cold, so was the service and so was the restaurant. We gave it 3 stars but actually should get 2 and a half stars. As an avid hummus consumer I...can tell you that this is not special in any way. At least the pricing was fair.More

Great hummus and falafel! Very simple and cheap. Also easy-to-find location. Not many choices in the menu but that’s what makes it good!

We love humus, and heard about Lina so we had high expectations. we had to wait in line, but that only made us more certain we are to eat one of the best humuses ever! How wrong we were.... not only it was one of...the worst humus we had had, 2 of us (who are well used to eating humus ) started having terrible stomach aches... surely we will not come back.More

We went on a recommendation from a local so we had low expectations and it was perfect. Small place with 6 tables, enough 30 people max. Fresh hummus, great falafel, warm pita, tasty salad & pretty decent fries. Worth a stop if you want a...little adventure in finding this place!! ✌🏽More
