Yummy food

Very good vegetarian middle eastern food. The Hummus and Falafel were excellent. The Apple+Carrot+Ginger juice was excellent. Falafel wrap tasted good.

It is a surprising place, starting from the fact that it is in the basement, and ending with how tasty the food is! My favorite was hummus with mushrooms and little veggie pancakes! What a wonderful find! Thank You guys for being there!

Love this place which is a hidden gem on the UWS. We've had several of the hummus items and they are great. You can tell they do lots of repeat business from locals which is always a sign they are doing things right.

We ordered the 3 sharing mezze to start off with. Went for falafels, babaganoush and grilled aubergine. For mains i had the falafel shwarma, mum had the corn... More

Delicious and healthy food that's very reasonable given its NYC. it's a very casual place with little ambience but we came for the food and it didn't disappoint! Veggie coucous was delicious.

Love this place. Tiny, crowded, but delicious food. They've expanded the menu beyond hummus, so there are a few other options. The vegetarian couscous is great!

Hummus plate quality and test was close to very good hummus in Israel, that's mean a lot. They have ( great) Goldstar beer, proper pickles and freshly backed pittas. So - ideal place to have simple and tasty food. Reasonable priced

This is a vegan place right next to Central Park. I visited for my bday. It was unique very efficient service. It's a small place and we can for lunch. I can imagine it getting really crowded. The Mediterranean mojito made with Anise was Delish as was the beer. We had the mezze hummus, babaganoush and tahini. The hummus is... More
