“Like coming home, and getting fed the best home-made food!”
Reviewed August 28, 2013 via mobile

There is never a bad day at Abu Dabi! The service is always with a smile and open heart. The portions are good, and if you are still hungry, all you have to do is say 'Tow-se-fet, with gentle eyes, and they will bring you more!

The music is reggae, so if you like it, you're in luck, if you don't, you probably will by the time you leave,

It's been around for a long time, and we have never been less than 100% pleased each time!

Beh-tea-a-voon! Bon Appetite!

“No Woman No Cry”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

This Hummus restaurant is different. At the moment you come in, you are welcomed. You have a wonderful reggae music, smiley owner and waitress. The place is very simple but thats what you need in Hummus restaurant ! The Masabacha (kind of Hummus) is very good (I think the owner is arabi) and cheap !
There is only one "but" the pickles could be better !
Fully recommended !

“Great hummus”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

Fantastic hummus in a central location where you can get to people watch. Galilee-style hummus as well as Meshawsha, Mahluta, Hummus-Ful and Falafel.

I had the Hummus-Ful which was perfect. I left full without taking up the offer a free refill as the portions are huge and such value for money. Can't wait to go back to Israel to visit there again!

The restaurant's name is actually Abu Dahbi.

“I have only good thing to say”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

I visited this restaurant for the first time last week, but for some time now I hear great reviews about it.
So finally I had the opportunity and the pleasure, and it was great!
The hummus was fresh and really good, the bread was soft and tasty, the service was way beyond perfect, the music was good and the most surprising thing was the refill. Yes, we asked for another plate of hummus and the waitress told us that refill is part of service.

Don't miss it guys! Trust me you won't regret it. :)

“Delicious hummus”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

This place is spectacular. We came for breakfast based on the recommendation of a local, and it was one of our best decisions ever. We don't speak or read Hebrew, but our waitress was very patient and explained the whole menu for us. We ended up getting an order of hummus that was half mashausha, which is chunkier and more lemony, and half regular hummus. Along with that we got an order of falafel.

Our hummus came out soon, warm and waiting to be scooped up with soft delicious pita bread. You are also brought hot peppers, pickles and olives. The hummus was honestly divine, and the falafel was quite good too. At the end of your meal, you are brought a small glass of Arabic coffee.

As others have stated, you get free hummus refills, but it is so filling that it's doubtful you'll take them up on it. All this food came out to about 33 NIS for two people.
