We found this place from the Tripadvisor reviews and we were not disappointed. The humus, falafel and meat skewers were delicious. If we had been in Jerusalem for more days, we would have come here again for sure.

I visited Hummus & Falafel Tala at the end of my Old City Free Walking Tour, upon the recommendation of my guide & was not disappointed. A pleasant little restaurant inside, quick service & a tasty falafel pitta for only 15 shekels.

Close to the western wall and all the main attractions. Typical middle eastern food and it was very very good. Shake hula with eggs was delicious and so was the hummus and Tehina. Very friendly staff. Big recommendation
