I stumbled in after a day of walking through The Cloisters and down Hudson River Park. So, starving! It was late afternoon, no waiting, and the staff was lovely. Delicious hummus,real pita and fantastic mint iced tea. I can't say enough about how happy I am to have found this place!

This is a great place to try any of several hummus related meals.I usually get a 3-side special: beet salad, rice & lentils & a cup of vegetable soup (with large chunks of veggies). Mt friend's eggplant Shakshuka was also delicious. we shared their version of pizza, a pleasant treat. We each had Malabi (a custard dessert), Their hot house... More

NYC has too few reasonably priced restaurants with extremely flavorful vegetarian options like Hummus Place. What a unique menu. Absolutely delicious!

This downstairs place is quite small but really welcoming. We were there on a Sunday...their busiest day due to their brunch menu...but we didn't have to wait very long for a table. We accidentally ordered the hummus platter which was great but, in hindsight, we wish we'd ordered six different appetizers/small plates which we'll definitely do when we return. Loved... More

If I could eat here everyday I would. The flavors of the food really shine through even in simple foods like hummus, falafel, pita and butternut squash soup (those are the items I ordered). Walking in, the restaurant I saw diners eating a variety of menu offerings which all looked appealing. The place is small and easy to overlook but... More

We had a fantastic, healthy, fresh dinner of salad, humous, falafel and shakshuka with haloumi. Quick, efficient, well priced and tasty. It's popular with limited tables but has a quick turnover. Great, healthy fast food but not really relaxing nor leisurely.

Visited based on tripadvisor ratings. It is a small place in a basement barely visible from the street and would be easy to miss. Food was really good and authentic, the Falafel Hummus was excellent, with great Pita. Music did not really match the middle eastern food but would recommend for a nice lunch.

We were wanting to grab a cookie at Levain Bakery which is right around the corner, but wanted some real food first so we just took a shot on this place and it was very good! My husband and I ordered the hummus platter and they were all so good and fresh. The pita was warm and wonderful!

Excellent selection of middle eastern food, offered in a small restaurant setting. Also - well-packed food for takeout.

Went here for lunch with a friend and we really enjoyed the place. The hummus is very balanced, but the pita bread makes this far above any other middle eastern restaurant. It is flavorful, moist, and hearty. We ordered the sample platter which I recommend if it is your first time. I am fairly certain you won't be disappointed.
