Heard so many good things about Orens so we headed straight there from the airport. It's testament to how great this place is that the line stretches down the street, and while you're in the line you hear passers by saying how amazing Orens is....More

Being that we are starved for good Mediterranean food in our hometown, we were thrilled to find Oren’s. The sampler platter was perfect with their light but filling pita bread. Very yummy lunch.

We were delighted to find this gem while visiting Stanford University. We had both the falafel and the chicken schnitzel in pita bread and found them to be excellent. The hummus sampler was delicious as well. If you enjoy Israeli food, this is your place.

Oren's has all the usual mideast food--hummus, pita break, kebabs, etc. If you think Israeli food = Jewish food, you'll be disappointed. They don't have latkes, blintzes, kugel, brisket...

I really love their hummus and other menu options. It's a tiny place but the food is fresh and delicious. The pita bread is excellent.

One of the best Israeli food restaurants outside Israel. Besides several styles of Hummus (I prefer the newly available Jaffa-style) they have pretty good falafel balls and various meats. I enjoy the many other vegan options such is Israeli Salad and Tabouli. You can't find...More
