Friendly servers and tasty vegetarian options at this cozy neighborhood spot. If you're on the UWS, this is a quick, easy option for lunch or dinner.

There many countries/cultures that make/serve/eat hummus, so it's delicate to claim authenticity. Nevertheless, I'll step forward and say, the hummus here is among the most authentic. I can also add that the babaganooj is some of the best i've sampled. New to me is labne cheese, a cross between yogurt and feta and oh so creamy. falafel and grape leaves... More

Saw this place on GoogleMaps, we were spending the morning in Central Park, it's not a terrible walk over, just a couple blocks if you're in the southern part of the park. Were met at the door by one of the waiters, who seated us and brought water and menus. We ordered way too much! I was really hungry, and... More

I stumbled in after a day of walking through The Cloisters and down Hudson River Park. So, starving! It was late afternoon, no waiting, and the staff was lovely. Delicious hummus,real pita and fantastic mint iced tea. I can't say enough about how happy I am to have found this place!

This is a great place to try any of several hummus related meals.I usually get a 3-side special: beet salad, rice & lentils & a cup of vegetable soup (with large chunks of veggies). Mt friend's eggplant Shakshuka was also delicious. we shared their version of pizza, a pleasant treat. We each had Malabi (a custard dessert), Their hot house... More

NYC has too few reasonably priced restaurants with extremely flavorful vegetarian options like Hummus Place. What a unique menu. Absolutely delicious!

This downstairs place is quite small but really welcoming. We were there on a Sunday...their busiest day due to their brunch menu...but we didn't have to wait very long for a table. We accidentally ordered the hummus platter which was great but, in hindsight, we wish we'd ordered six different appetizers/small plates which we'll definitely do when we return. Loved... More

If I could eat here everyday I would. The flavors of the food really shine through even in simple foods like hummus, falafel, pita and butternut squash soup (those are the items I ordered). Walking in, the restaurant I saw diners eating a variety of menu offerings which all looked appealing. The place is small and easy to overlook but... More
