I ate at this hummus restaurant a lots of time and I can say that he doesn't have any competition about the taste of the hummus. The only problem is that you have to wait usually a lot of time to get to the restaurant or to take away home. Very recommended!!!

A low-priced restaurant, very modest, you may be seated with another couple at the same table. But its worth while, you taste the best hummus and enjoy the local atmosphere. If you want to taste a typical hummus, at a typical place, this is the place.

Not being a hummus expert but having tried some in my life, I can without a doubt say this is the best ever. The place is loud and crowded but it has a great local feeling and the quality of the hummus is incredible. How do they make it so creamy??? Definitw must in Jaffa!

It's the best hummus I've ever had. I'm no stranger to hummus - it's a dish I've loved and eaten my entire life in several countries. I've had hummus made by Egyptians, Syrians, Palestinians. This is by order of magnitude the best. There's a "hummus war" in Israel - a friendly debate among locals about whose hummus is the best.... More

If you want to come back from Israel and say you had the best humus ever, then you have to come here. No question. Amazing and fast service. Nice people. It's hard to get to but it's the hole in the wall place you're looking for.

Abu Hassan really lives up to his reputation. I don't know if this is the best hummus in the world, but it's certainly the best I ever had.

This place is legend. Our company sends people to Tel Aviv for work often and everyone passes word down to visit this place. Its a hike from our hotel, but worth it. I always stop by here before going home from business.
