“Great Humus(!), but that's it...”
Reviewed February 1, 2012

If you're a humus fan - this one's for you!
As someone who considers himself a humusologist, this humus is one of the best around! The humus is Arabic-Jerusalem style, like the type of humus you find in Abu-Gosh (an Arab village outside Jerusalem). It is thick (not watered down with tahini) and together with a couple of thick pita breads - it is a meal. You can also try a couple of humus variations, like the one with beef or with mushrooms - they are all great!
Unfortunately (and surprisingly) the rest of the food there is almost uneatable and extremely over-priced...

“Best Humus in Bergen County”
Reviewed March 7, 2011

Yes, it is a Kosher Restaurant but enjoy a perfect Middle Eastern Humus, Falaffel, Tehini, Marocan Sigars, home made Franch Frize.
One more thing - the Pita bread is the thick one that has a lot of pita...
No need for us to go to NYC for Humus any more. This is a BYO place (if you bring wine it should be Kosher wine)
