I love this place. I don't often end up in the valley for dinner. But whenever I do I come here. Hummus is outstanding. As good as some of the best in Israel. Shawarma is also fantastic. Salads can be a little average. But comes for the salad. I totally recommend this place if you like Israeli.

I met a friend for lunch here during the week. At around 12:30 we had no problem getting a table. By 1:00 it was pretty full. The hummus, mushroom hummus, and picked items were all quite tasty. I was in the mood for a falafel sandwich - not on the menu! Still, you can order one (it is a secret menu item).

I have eaten there few time, my lover girl and I. The salads are many, and most f them are delicious .hummus ,you have to order, but Baba ghanouge, eggplant in oil or in sesame seeds tehina. There is the corn salad with a touch of Mayonaise. There is the egg salad with fantastic, Turkish salad, which kind of spicy and tasty at the same time. The bread is an excellent old fashioned Arabic bread that is usually made by hand and baked in a stone oven wit natural wood, which I am sure this resturant adopted from the Palestinian villages, being an Israeli resturant . As they also adopted few of the middle eastern tradition of other teams specially the great Kenafa dessert which is awesome and comes hot to your table with rose water sugar syrup. But, you have to make sure that you have left some room for that. Also one of the great adoptions is the popular Arabic breads with Zaater and olive oil freshly baked. Even though Israelis claim ownership of the Palestinians/ arabic/ middle eastern food, it's a mix from the region with specific ownership to it being just Israeli, as this restaurant is. The grilled chicken also is great, and we eat one of the tastiest fish that we had lately . This last time the eggplant tehina was not right, and I brought it to there attention, but it's the only time.

The house hummus was fantastic, but the rest of the meal was just so-so. Staff was efficient, although not super friendly. Fun atmosphere and might try again to give it another chance.

Have been eating at the Hummus Bar & Grill for few years now and always had a great experience. Everything is very well prepared to perfection. The bread and humus are excellent and so are the skewers. Many patrons travel far just to eat here, I would highly recommend it and would definitely come back.
