“Would have been good to try if it were open...”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

The place could not be found open at all. I tried visiting 5 times at various times during the week since I had heard so much about it. Every time, it was closed. And there is no sign or indication of when it opens. I tried as early as 8 am and as late as 6pm.

“Brilliant ...... just .... brilliant”
Reviewed June 29, 2014

Not a lot more to say. This place is famous for hummus. In the Middle East hummus is not a side, its the main event and the hummus variations served at Abu Hasan are world class. Tiny spot in Jaffa with a constant line. An in and out flow of happy faces either from satisfaction or anticipation! This is not your every day pot of hummus and some pita. This is an experience that will have me coming back again and again.

“Worth the hype”
Reviewed June 22, 2014

The. Best. Hummus. It really is worth the hype. Even if there's a line, it's very fast because there are no menus, and no food to cook. Go and enjoy the experience and the food.

Must go when in Tel Aviv. It is located in Jaffa (behind Jaffa). Very local place with the best hummus we have ever eatten. Must go and try yourself.

“Best Hummus is an understatement”
Reviewed June 14, 2014

What else can be said on probably the best Hummus restaurant in the world. It makes you wonder what have you done so good that you deserve to enjoy this perfection. You can't visit the city and skip this institute.
