We were walking in the old city and saw the big sign of hummus and falafels. The place looked very local so we decided to pop on, also the priced seemed very reasonable and even low, in comparison. The place itself was nice, very simple...More

The hummus was tasteless, as was the salad. The pita bread was cold. The pine nuts were fried in regular oil which was poured over the hummus distastefully. The mushrooms were not fresh but canned. Don't go there!!

My sister and me were wondering in the Old City when we found this restaurant just few minutes from Jaffa Gate. The food was amazing (we had hummus, chicken shawarma and falafels with side dishes and some pitas), but the service surpassed all my expectations....More

If you are looking for tasty local food (mainly hummus) in Jerusalem old city, this is a veeery good option. (highlighting pine nut hummus). Great food for only 124 shequel for 3people, really a good experience. We will repeat before heading the next stop.

THIS IS A RIP OFF place, WAY OVERPRICE. We ask for the price or menu and did not give us the menu. They just told us to sit and will prepare our food. So our mistake is we sat down without knowing the price is....More

I consulted my pictures from the place, but I couldn't find any opening hours... So I checked their web site instead... ;-) They are open 10:00 am to 10:00 pm all days of the week. The web page starts with talahummus.
