Located near the heart of Kazimierz, once a home to Kraków's Jewish population, now up-and-comming cool district full of restaurants, bars and design shops.

Hamsa serves a mixture of Middle Eastern and North African dishes with their speciality being hummus (Make Hummus Not War - being their cute, but very topical claim - as hummus seems to be one of the few common things the feuding nations of Middle East have in common). We have tried the less traditional Hummus with Mango and Cranberries, Muhammara spread (made from nuts and roasted peppers) and Fried Cheese in Nigella seeds. The Mezze come with olives, pickled peppers, cornichons and laffa bread. All of the three starters were very enjoyable.

For main course we tried the Chicken Tagine with Clementine for 2 persons, served with Bulgur - and it was to die for. The meat was tender and succulent, falling of the bones.

Our waitress was very nice, very friendly and informative. Definitely recommended for a light lunch or a lighter dinner.

Very conveniently located in the square at the beginning of the jewish district, this place offers great food served by a young friendly staff. We had a mezza set of three starters (hummus, cheese and eggplants babaganousch), and baked eggplants with rice, almonds and raisins. Everything was well prepared. I definitely would return here.

Excellent middle-eastern style meals, served in a great little garden restaurant. The food is fresh and beautifully presented, whilst the service is friendly and relaxed.

The food was great. Lovely authentic middle eastern food. The service was terrible. We sat there a long time, and when the waitress did finally bother to see us she seemed irritated and disinterested.
