The food quality here and service are very good. I enjoy the hummus(obviously) and slaw and the falafel is pretty decent. The one bone I have to pick is that their pita is horrible, its not a home baked product and probably sourced from a...More

My wife and I ate this week at The restaurant. It was relatively easy to get the table via trip advisor. The hummus was the best I have ever had. We also chicken on a skewers. Excellent!

We loved the food but I think next time will get the food to go as the noise inside because it is a small place makes it hard to talk maybe if you go at off times it would be better.

I'm admittedly not a hummus expert, but between my experiences at other middle eastern restaurants and Store bought Sabra, I can declare Oren's to be without a doubt the best hummus I've ever had. And the pita was fantastic, again unlike any other I've had...More

Hard to secure a table, always packed, somewhat cramped and very noisy. Better to go the counter and place a takeout order. On a recent visit, the seating area was full with a 25 minute expected wait but my takeout order was filled within only...More
