Oren's Hummus is a great spot right on University Ave in downtown Palo Alto. Pretty packed on the weekends, but the wait is worth it. I got the mushroom hummus and we shared a sampler appetizer platter between the four of us. Everything is fresh and healthy. Highly recommended!

Guiding principles attracted my attention .. Authentic, Fresh, Healthy, Convenient and Sustainable .. and all seems to be present during visit in the evening .. in spite of rush .. 20 minutes wait ..
Arabic popular Hummus, Pita with Vegetable Skewers and Sampler dish of Falafel balls, Babaganush Eggplant, Moroccan carrots and Israeli salad was of great combination .. Malabi custard with nuts and coconut gives different taste to desert ! Congrats !!

The little salads are the icing on the cake, but the hummus with ground beef and fresh fluffy pita bread are the most wonderful place to start. The place gets no marks for decor but the atmosphere is lively and the clientelle is as ethnically diverse as in Heathrow Airpot. Fun people watching. Back to the food. Fresh and flavorful Israeli and Fattoush salads and an array of these lovely little plates. Loved them all - beets, romanian eggplant, baba ganoush, matbucha and spicey carrots.

What works:
- The ambiance is awesome.
- The service is really awesome - every single person drops by to pay attention and take care of things. You leave the place with a good vibe. They even offered to pack it for us as well!
- The food is authentic, large serving and is generally finger licking good. The prices are mostly reasonable.

What may be a downer:
- The queues! We had a 15-20 min wait but were fasttracked as a few guys didnt show up.
- Nothing else besides hummus/sandwiches. But wait - its in the name, no? :)
