Quite possibly the finest hummus ever - great, bustling restaurant - queuing down the street - very quick and very friendly service - just what we wanted - an absolute delight !

Yeah, just go there. Portions are huge. Go hungry. Leave VERY full. And yes, the hummus is as good as its reputation. So is the pita. Like that they have a sink with soap and water to wash hands since customers will be eating with...those.More

Seriously, the best hummus & falafel! We loved the tangy lemon sauce that was served with our hummus. The pita was super soft. Everything was incredible, including the service! If you’re visiting Tel Aviv, this is a MUST visit!

Heard about Abu Hassan on TA. We went for lunch and now understand the high rating. The service was very friendly and the food was phenomenal. The hummus trio was some of the best we had in Israel and Jordan. The falafel were also outstanding....Make sure to visit when in Jaffa.More

A friend sent us a delivery of ful medames, msabbahah, hummus, falafel, chips and pitta breads. The food was very good although the falafel was a little dry for my taste and the chips were the standard soggy undercooked ones you get served in most...places in Tel Aviv. Authentic food and very tasty overall. Generous portions.More

Great place to eat Humus, price-wise and quality wise (spicy as it should be). It is much more than a food experience. It is nice doing the difference between an Arabic and Jewish way of serving humus.

Abu Hassan is on both sides of the street but this side is a little bigger, a little less crazy if you can say that and it’s got salads. what a meal we had including salad (so our consciences are clean our bellies are full)...they have wonderful service, nice guys serving (I didn’t see any women) but what a great place and a great meal. Besides the salad we had their fries, falafel, tahini, super fresh pita, foule, and their hot/spicy sauce. This is an experience, it must be visited more than once so enjoy.More

I would recommend the spicy hummus. It was worth the walk to go get it. Tel Aviv is full of great food stops but this is still worth it!
