Do not be fooled by the outside appearance, or the lack of interior opulence; this is where you want to eat. The young people working inside, preparing and serving their ancient recipe foods take pride in not only what they prepare, but in how they serve it to you. Their customers were people of all ages, who appreciated good food... More

If you want to try a real great hummus this is the place. It's a good option after a walking tour by The western wall - it's close, just a few minutes walking.

Fabulous cheap eats. Ordered the cauliflower & chickpea plates. Get veggies & falafel balls with. Cauliflower was awesome!!! Tried there bean (pea) soup too really really good. Husband loved their green dip (hot-spicy). Only reason not 5 star was tables a little less than clean. Great service!!!

This is a great place to have good old traditional hummus and pita. We got some falafel and hummus for lunch here. It was really soft and flavourful. Got some beer too and fairly decent price for such a meal. Loved the food. Surprisingly, unlike other reviews here the service was fairly quick. Maybe because we went a little late... More

2 weeks in Israel-- this hummus might have been the best we had. A cheap meal, and extremely satisfying and authentic experience.
