Hummus Place USED TO serve the best hummus in NYC, hands-down. I was their biggest fan. I don't know if it's under new management, if they have new chefs or what. It has become sub-mediocre at best. Even the tahini is bad now. What a huge shame.

I'm giving a four-star rating based on the hummus alone, which is the best in the city, by far. In fact, it's as good as the better places I've been to in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. I would give five stars, but, strangely, the rest of the fare is not on the level of the hummus. Falafel is very good, but their tabouli and baba are noticeably sub-mediocre. Worth it for the divine hummus!

One of the few places in town to get authentic Israeli dishes - tasty, decent size servings (except for the eggplant appetizer), good service, and reasonably priced. The restaurant is small and tightly packed - actually uncomfortably so on the Sunday evening we were there. The customers, many speaking Hebrew, were friendly and accommodating, so the closeness was actually a plus this time.

I went one Sunday morning and ordered the brunch. I asked the waitress and she recommended the boureka. It came with 2 poached eggs, salad, the 2 boureka (stuffed pastries), labane cheese and home fries. The potatoes were cold, the boureka were not cold, but not hot either. They seemed to have been frozen and re-heated. When I asked for pita bread, I got white, instead of the whole wheat I requested. I never got water when I sat down, while all of the other tables did. When the bill came, they charged me for the pita bread as an extra. The place was crowded, and people were coming in to get take out. Maybe I ordered wrong, but, probably wont be back.

we trek over from the East Side to eat here; great hummus dishes. quick and not expensive. they are a bit stringent about who sits where I guess due to limited space but not a problem for us. it does a steady stream of business from regulars each time we are there. will definitely keep going there.

Walked in to Amsterdam location of Hummus Place alone, restaurant was pretty crowded w/looked to be 2 empty tables, one being in the corner, the other between 2 couples. I politely asked to sit @ the corner table, the hostess kept pointing to the middle seat w/increasing attitude..
