Great food and service plus very reasonable prices. Hummus, baba ganoush, tabouleh, and the grilled chicken are my favorite, small restaurant so if you go there at popular times expect to wait in line.

Our family really enjoyed the hummus with mushrooms, pita bread and the chicken and rice. Their greek salad also very delicious and we also enjoyed the cabbage slaw that is served with everyone's meal.

The Hummus is really really tasty, one of the best I've ever had actually. They also have some great salads (tabule, greek salad). Their lamb is from another world. Their plates are pretty well served and enough to share. Is a nice place to go...More

My brother, Matthew, a local that lives in Mountain View, insisted we try Hummus for lunch. Wow- was he spot on, or what? The salads were amazingly good; the wraps are a vegan's dream, and the soup was fantastic. Hummus was as you would expect,...More
