this place used to serve some of the best Humus in Israel. now the Humus is ok in one location (the original one in Jerusalem's center) all the rest in their chain should be avoided.

Enough said. If you like Hummus & Pita, this is a must stop. Tiny restaurant, and always crodwed for a good reason.

Don't go here if you're looking for elegant or fancy. This is the Israeli equivalent of a mom and pop place with the best of homemade middle eastern specialties. Great hummus, fries, falafel, you name it. Order and receive in 5 minutes or less. Take...More

Great food. Usually crowded. Take out is most practical.

Popular yet vulgar. Considered a MUST but I would pass.
