“The Best Hummus in the world!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2013

Abu Hasan is the best hummus in the world. Take either Hummus or Meshawashe and get side-dishes for free at your table. Very small place and very busy - this is the authentic eatery and the quality is always good.
every day specially Saturdays and Fridays are packed.

“Unbelievably busy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2013 via mobile

Went with friends for a quick Israeli lunch...
Was very busy and packed. They get you sitting on 6 pax tables with strangers and get you your plate in a microsecond ... Eat and get out!

But then... That was the best hummus I've ever tried...

Amazing. No bullz, no fancy place - just hummus!

“Best Hummus in the World”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2013

I eat at Abu Hassan about once a week since it's not far from my office. I've never had a bad meal at this restaurant. The hummus is always delicious. The service is great, albeit noisy, but that adds to the atmosphere.

“Simply the best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2013 via mobile

Waiting in line ar Abu Hassan for hummus felt a little like waiting in line for Tartine in San Francisco. The end result is the same... Delicious satisfaction. We got the Masabacha and the regular hummus. So so good. The best in Tel Aviv hands down. Hummus back home will never be the same.

“Best Hommus in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013

No doubt, the best hommus in town. A very simple place but if you are just in for the hommus, dont miss out on this one.
