My son and I stopped for Luch at this place while wondering around the old city. I'm not sure where this place ranked in the forever debated best falafel place in Israel but I can say we enjoyed it. The place is simple and the...More

It’s Muslim Ramadan in Jerusalem so if you want to sit down and eat Hummus in a restaurant rather than taking away you need to come here to Lina in the Christian Quarter, I’m not sure of their religion but they are open as usual...More

local friends told us that this is the best falafel in Jerusalem. We had hummus and falafel. Pita bread was very fresh and good. Falafel was indeed excellent. Great value.

Fresh pita. Hoummos with fava bean was great. Nicely seasoned chopped salad. In the Christian Quarter of the old city. Simple and delicious.

A lovely little place, sort of hidden away in a side alley, good simple dishes which are very reasonable priced, a great place to chill out away from the hectic shopping streets and large crowds. my favorite place inside the old city for sure :)

I'm sorry but I have to disagree with all the great reviews. The Hummus is very sour and to be honest very far from being great or "the best". The service wasn't great and it was very dirty all around, we were not impressed.

This is a very good place to stop while walking around the old city to have a delicious and cheap lunch. Hummus and falafel are definitely worth, as well as the pomegranate juice and the lemonade. Can’t miss it!
