Great place to grab a bite.
The bread and Mushroom Hummus are a must, highly recommended even if you just need a snack.
I always have to end with the Knaffe Mallabi is the perfect way to end any time you visit from a snack to a meal!

My girlfriend was in town from Sydney Australia and we needed a place to meet her late husbands best friend for lunch. We all have visited and lived in Israel at one time in our lives and the food was outstanding as was the service and location. I can't wait to go back!

Hummus Bar never disappoints! If you like Israeli food that is authentic and totally yummy, this is the place to go! If you are looking for a great place to go with the family or a small group of people or on a fun date, this is the place to go. Large portions that can easily serve two. No hesitation in recommending!

Great food. I would have given 5 stars but the service was lacking. It was hard to get water refilled and our order taken. But, the food was fantastic and makes the restaurant worth a visit.

The food was excellent. The service was also excellent. My only complaint is that the noise level was a little high. It made it difficult for me to communicate with my companion. However, it would not deter me from returning to the Hummus Bar & Grill in the future.

Overall is good place to hang out, food little over priced for what they offer and place is kind of out dated, bread they make their which is nice and they bring you as many as you eat but need better quality and cook little more.
In general is good place but for me is one time thing,
Waiter and staffs are super nice and did good job.

Food was decent. Service was dicy at best. Will not go back not sure what the deal was with our waitress. She took our drink and appetizer order. Didn’t see her again. Then I saw her waiting on other tables. She didn’t even look my way. Had to tell manager we were ready to order after waiting for 10 minutes to order. Once we got another waitress things were fine. Unfortunately the tone was already set for the night with the very slow service.

Excellent middle eastern food well prepared and tastefull, bread is prepared and served hot right after it’s ready, the Hummus is authentic and the salads are fresh and they’ll refill the salads as many tomes as you wish.
The Shuarma is amazing and well spiced to please all pallets, they also serve a couple of fish dishes, the salmon(big portion) comes on a bed of well prepared Quinoa. They also serve deep fried appetizers, to top it off, they have “Lange” for desert which is amazing and a must try dish.
I don’t know any other restaurant that serves this desert.
Strongly recommend!

We love, love, love this restaurant. The food is outstanding and the servers are extremely nice, friendly and personable. My only complaint is the noise level. Their acoustics are awful so you can only hear the person seated next to you. You have to yell across the table to talk to someone next adjacent to you.

Upon arrival, I told the host I have reservations for 2 at 9:15 pm under name. He asked us where we like to sit. I said anywhere is fine as long as it’s inside. So he seated us in a corner. The place was not busy at all for a Sunday night, yet it took forever for a server to come. Finally a guy came and brought out little dishes of olives, pickled cabbage and some kind of tomato sauce. A few minutes later, another guy came with the bread, and noticed we do not have any drinks. The second guy seemed nicer than the first guy and took our drink order. The first guy later came back and took our order. Mind you, everything seem to take forever for each server to come. We were done with our meal and we had actually requested dessert in advance, but to bring out after our meal. The service was so slow so I asked another guy (since our original server was never to be seen again) if it’s too late to cancel the dessert. He said I don’t know, let me ask. He said it’s too late, it’s ready for me. I said fine, can you please box it. He said ok. The service was just strange and we honestly didn’t like the ambiance. I don’t know why but I felt like the patrons there were snobby? It’s like you have to speak their native language to get proper attention. Also, the Lakers game was on so I don’t know if the servers were busy watching the game in the other room? Anyway, the food was really good, but we just wanted to leave. I had to wave another server’s attention and ask if we can get some boxes and to bring my boxed dessert. He said there is no dessert waiting for me. I said ok fine, please just make sure I am not charged for it. Then the kicker, after we left the restaurant, I checked my email and saw a cancellation of my reservation made by the restaurant ! I couldn’t believe it. I called the restaurant and they said OpenTable did it and I need to contact OpenTable. This was so annoying. This was my first and last visit to this place. Shame because their mushroom hummus is great.

Had confirmed reservation email. Arrived at the restaurant and was told they tried to reach me by phone that they have no table available in the restaurant and then offered the far table in the parking lot on a cool night without a functioning gas heater. They had empty tables inside claiming those were reserved. Four of us left very upset and disappointed that open table reservation was not honored. This restaurant should be eliminated from open table as one cannot rely on making a reservation. Should note that we patronized this restaurant many many times over the years and this is the first disaster but also our last visit. There are many others even better. We were embarrassed in front of our friends
