We tried the three different kinds of humus and all of them are really nice. Also the falafels are great. This place is crowded almost all the time. But if you have some time and you are in the area, give it a try.

Do not expect to a fine fancy restaurant, it's a simple restaurant, and in the pick hours the place is very noisey and with the amount of people,it is not so convenient to find a place sit alone. However this is the best hummus I ever eaten. Highly recommended.

Second visit of this place and still think it's the best hummus place. This place and their warm hummus and falafels are must when in Jaffa.

Not much to say except if you don't stop here to have hummus, you're not taking in the culture! Cozy little place, busy as expected. Tried all 3 flavors of hummus...BEST EVER!

Had the most amazing hummus ever just before burning it off on the Sandemans TLV walking tour. Lunch here was amazing and everyone was so friendly. The most soft and tasty chickpeas I could ever imagine! Thoroughly recommended!

Going by reviews and recommendations, I visited Abu Hassan in Old Jaffa to try out their Hummus. We ordered the 3 kinds of Hummus they made and shared the meal between 6 people. The price was very cheap. The hummus was very creamy and tasted really good. The place is very small so expect to share the table with other... More

I've been living in Tel Aviv for two years and have eaten a lot of hummus and masabacha (hummus with tahini and chickpeas) Abu Hassan has by far the best masabacha/hummus in my opinion. It is fresh, delicious and cheap (18 shekels) could eat this every day of the week and if on a visit to Tel Aviv/Jaffa it is... More

You havn't had hummus until you've been to Abu Hassan. Excellent food and friendly staff. It is very popular so prepare to wait for a table but it shouldn't take to long and it is worth it!
