The food here is delicious. You can't find better hummus, Arabic salad and falafel anywhere in the old city. The service is fast and efficient and apart from the lovely food the true honesty and hospitality of the place make it a very special place to us. K&J

We were just walking the Old City and the Christian Qtr, we wanted something light to eat, and we remembered someone mentioned this place, they have to addresses, one across the other, so done despair if in one it is crowded, try across the small Al Khanka St...just a few more steps away. Hummus is very good, as well as... More

The place is well-known as authentic middle eastern restaurant, but the food and service doesn't hold the reputation. There were differences from the order to what we got, falafel and chips came out cold, chips was not fresh at all, salad tasted like it was standing on the counter for a while. Hummus is indeed good and homemade, but not... More

If you like hummus, and you are at the old city in Jerusalem, that's the place to go. Always good, always fresh. Their falafel is very good too.

After we took the Western Walls tunnel tour, we emerged in the Muslim quarter, and stopped by Lina (there are 2 right across from each other). It had been highly recommended by a friend & travel guide, and it didn't disappoint. Cappuccino and toasted Pine Nut hummus was a fantastic second breakfast

I discovered this restaurant last month in the Old City of Jerusalem and have returned twice already! I’m addicted to the hummus dish with whole hummus on top, served with fresh pitas and side dishes! There are other Middle Eastern delicacies on the menu too, such as falafel for example. Reasonably priced and highly recommended!

if you want to see what is it like to live in the old city, where it is hectic this is the place for you - you will get your food before you sit down all is fresh and good but do not hang out there to long - more people are hungry. good experience.

We sat down and immediately had a basket of pita set in front of us - pillow soft and delicious. We had the hummus with pine nuts. I think the best hummus I've ever had! And fresh squeezed pomegranate juice - heaven! We were maybe a little earlier than the usual lunch hour and it wasn't crowded at all. If... More

We were a group of 6 -- we ordered nearly all the dishes on the menu. Favorites were the hummus with snubar (pine nuts) and ful (fava beans). Perhaps because it is winter, the first batch of pita bread they brought was not warm. When we asked for more, the 2nd batch of bread they brought was warm. One other... More
