Excellent selection of middle eastern food, offered in a small restaurant setting. Also - well-packed food for takeout.

Went here for lunch with a friend and we really enjoyed the place. The hummus is very balanced, but the pita bread makes this far above any other middle eastern restaurant. It is flavorful, moist, and hearty. We ordered the sample platter which I recommend if it is your first time. I am fairly certain you won't be disappointed.

The combination platter is our favorite here...and we never miss the labneh and hummus of course. The whole wheat pita and pickles are fab along with the special soups they usually have. We almost always order dessert and the mint tea to end our meal! Perfect light dinner when catching a movie nearby at the AMC cinema.

I ordered the mushroom hummus and it came with some pita of your choice. The pita was so warm and fresh. The hummus was the best hummus I've ever tasted, and the service was awesome. Their mint tea is something special to, very refreshing and delicious.

This place has delicious food and the gluten free and vegan options are clearly marked on the menu. I had the veggie patties with rice, will be making it back here on my next trip.

After a few days in New York with real bad coffee I can't describe the smile on my face when I over heard the waiter asking a neighboring table if they wanted Turkish Coffee!!! The Hummus was ok and pita bread also. It's not Israel but that was to be expected! They have Goldstar beer so that's "Very Good"!!!

Emphasis, unsurprisingly, on hummus combos but good selection of other items.... all bright and fresh. Room is spotless, service quick, prices are fair and the staff terrific. Recommended.

I found this small Kosher restaurant in the Upper West Side of NYC. The food was excellent. I had a whole wheat pita falafel with all the trimmings; I replaced the fries with a fresh green salad and a mint iced tea. I was only able to finish 1/2 the falafel. The atmosphere was nice, the staff very friendly and... More

In 2013, my mom, sister and I had come from seeing a live taping of Dr. Oz and found Hummus Place Upper West Side. A delicious mezza of various foods plus the most delicious mint tea I've ever tried! I highly recommend it! Great for your budget!
