“Perfectly soft hummus in a very nice place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2014

The menu is rather limited (and not big on meat) but the quality of the servings is very high. Don't expect a big, full-featured restaurant, this is more like a small (30 seats?) hummus cafe... Ate there several times and it was equally good every time. And it is clean and proper, the owner clearly takes pride in his place and his food.

“Hummas Heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2014

This is a small, noisy, constantly busy slice of "classic" Middle Eastern food at it's best. The wait (not bad) for a table is well worth it, as everything on the menu is great. Definitely have the hummas with pine nuts and the falafel. One of my best meals at a price that can't be beat

“Incredibly tasty!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2014

I don't want to be unfair with all other restaurants in Jerusalem (even though I didn't try all of them), but I feel VERY comfortable recommending Lina Restaurant. They are kind of hummus specialized place and due to their location (close to Via Dolorosa), I am pretty sure that you're going to walk in front of it several times. Go ahead, with no fear! The place is simple, but really cosy, also frequented by local people. An old man, that I presume is the owner, prepare the hummus in front of you and then he offers you an amazing dish, served with a smattering of chickpeas and toasted pine nuts on top. Incredibly tasty!

“Great hummus, pita and falafel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2014

Falafel was the best I ever had! Hot, crispy on the outside and flavorful and soft on the inside. Hummus with fuul with delicious (portion was big!). Seating on two floors. Quick service. Affordable!

“Marvelous hummus”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2014

We loved the hummus at Lina, the best we've had in Israel and Palestine. The olive oil had the real bite of authentic 100% virgin oil.
