Don't look from outside! Go inside. You will find a perfect humus, a very good babaganuch e a wonderful hot bread. Don't forget to ask for the spicy sauce. Really good. It is not perfect because it doesn't has meat (like kafta). But ok, the...More

Waited half an hour on a table lunchtime sunday. The waiter managed to make 5 (five) mistakes with our order. Hummus and pitas are good, falafel are average at best. Lemonade is good. Prices are ok but not cheap

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...More

Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the
Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a
quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of
downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the
city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the
American Museum of Natural History, which has been
welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for
over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center,
