The wait-staff was not helpful at all and took very long to even seat us, when it was obviously a slow night (sunday and chilly). The waitress' hair was a health-code violation in itself (long, unclean, and not held back with anything) and she could not do math. (she argued the soda cost more than the lemonade--- even with the prices listed on a placard in front of us). They set down a small plate of pickles as an appetizer of sorts--- which were dry and discolored, and accompanied by a strand of her hair. We left and went to the falafel place one block down which has reasonable prices and incredible food that comes without attitude or dirty hair.
The Best Around

I have never had hummus that was better than this. First time I went to St Marks, but everytime since has been on McDougal. Both similar atmosphere, St. Marks is better for the outside seating. Along with the great hummus, the health salad and lemonade are great as well!
I dream of this hummus!

You too will be dreaming of this hummus if it's been a while since this delectable, creamy, delicious, and ultra fresh wonderfulness sensation has touched your lips and toungue! I was never a hummus lover, but I HAVE BEEN CONVERTED. Some of the best things in life are free (well almost) at this jewel of a find. You will find yourself bringing it to every picnic and potluck you find your self at! ENJOY!

Authentic and scrumptious hummus. Pita bread with the taste of pita and texture of naan. Pleasant staff/owners. All for less than you'd imagine... If you want hummus extraordinaire, in a low key atmosphere, this is it. No pretentiousness, this is genuinely scrumptious, authentic hummus (as I've only had in the mid-east), served with piping hot pita that'll make you want more even before you're done! If you have room for it there's fresh mid-eastern salad and soup, but guaranteed you'll leave more than satisfied and will have money leftover for the capuccino you may crave! I'll go back again and again.....
The Best Humus in NYC

Its the best Humus I have ever had. The Pita was fresh & delicious. The special green sauce, which is a house secret, adds a delicate taste to the Humus. I highly recommend it !
