The Humus add a little flavor of rotting. The dishes were small compare to other resturants I know. The falafel wasn't tasty. The resturant doesn't accept credit cards but they told it only after we ate. We ask for cold water (free according to local...More

I consulted my pictures from the place, but I couldn't find any opening hours... So I checked their web site instead... ;-) They are open 10:00 am to 10:00 pm all days of the week. The web page starts with talahummus.
