    This is a cool very relaxed place with communal tables and the best hummus (several toppings) and pita (fresh out of the oven in paper bags) that I've had. Very limited menu but everything is fresh and of excellent quality. The Israeli salad that comes with the hummus and pita is tasty as well. A few neat beers and a great frozen lemonade drink are also available. Very friendly staff and great music. Nice vibe.

    Excellent hummus, and excellent flavoured toppings. The menu changes daily so be sure to check what is on their Instagram menu.

    We went there under a recommendation of a friend, and we were pleasantly surprised. There were 4 of us and we originally planned on get two bowls of hummus to split as an "appetizer". However, after getting the roasted tomato and zucchini hummus, as well as 2 extra pitas- we soon realized this would be our dinner! I would go back in a heartbeat!!

    My daughter and I ate at Dizengoff for lunch on a Saturday. It was fairly crowded around 1:15 but we were able to get a seat at the communal tables. Our order took about 10 minutes from the time we got in line until we were served. We ordered the Tehina hummus and the Beet hummus, which were both generously portioned. The platter comes with a large, fresh, piping hot pita and a nice serving of Israeli salad (cucumber and tomatoes). Everything was delicious. My daughter has been to Israel several times and said that the hummus reminds her of Israel. I can't wait to return to try another flavor!

    You eat hummus here and in Zahav, you'll never touch other hummus in the US. In general, all of their hummus are soft, smooth & velvety, tasty and enjoyable. Beef hummus is my favorite since it has that texture called 'meat'...along with the standard slices of veggies & some olive oil. The cucumber salad with tomatoes & pickle is very refreshing, gives you a reboot on your taste buds. Pita bread is a yummy cloudy soft & very hot (fresh off the oven) piece yumminess. Order an extra for a dollar...you won't regret! Space is limited, it has 4 communal benches tables, 4 small high top table spots. Some customer just do take out. Overall, this is an outstanding place to get hummus. For dessert, cross over to Federal donuts (its sister joint). Parking is a little bit tough since it is along Walnut. With patience, we found a spot 2 blocks away...worth the walk.

    Working in Philly (from Toronto) for a few weeks and the client recommended and raved about Dizengoff. Thought to myself, "how good could the hummus be". Well, in one word, incredible! Menu is short (one regular hummus, the others changed daily), few draught beer selections, and the service friendly and quick. If you like hummus, don't miss this spot when in downtown Philly!

    (Anywhere other than Zahav, that is). I could dip the laffa bread into that hummus until I gave myself Celiac...! It is that good. The different options are great and it looks just like Dizengoff street in Jerusalem.

    The food was good Took a while to get. And seating is very limited. Only 3 tables outside and three picnic style tables inside with seats at the register area

    If you think hummus is that cold pasty stuff from the grocery store, do yourself a favor. Run here, now. Buy at least one of each of the featured hummus plates offered that day. Sit down at the picnic table and eat. Fresh, masterful, street food. Simple, beautiful, and damn good. I'd take a place and these picnic tables over many table clothed 6 course offerings in this city. If you are a tourist in search of cheap eats and a local pulse, this is your stop. Just save some for the locals.

    I have eaten here, or at their stand in the Whole Foods Market on Pennsylvania Ave, a number of times. Yes the hummus is really good with unusual toppings (love the ground beef and golden raisin one) but the standout is their freshly baked pita bread! Forget what you know about those flat discs you find in the grocery store aisle. These are hot, right out of the oven. Who knew pita should be airy, while still being substantial, and actually have taste! Buy an extra, or two. You will need it!

    Had the pulled chicken and hummus dish. Was the best I ever had. Each bite was heaven. Of course the singed pita right out of the oven was the perfect hummus delivery system. Note: Buy an extra pita next time! Fresh vegetables were great too.

    This place is tiny and always packed but it is just like an Israeli restaurant. Atmosphere, food, service, everything about it is great. 100% recommended.

    Really impressing Hummus with brown egg. Well seasoned and very tasty fresh pita. Feeling like eating in Tel aviv

    As a vegetarian I have only tried a few of the menu offerings which change daily. The Pita bread is fresh right out of the oven. When I leave Philly I always take a few orders to go.

    I was staying at the Hotel Sofitel Philadelphia on business and searched the Internet for someplace to have dinner when I came across great reviews for both Dizengoff and Federal Donuts. Both are located a couple of minutes' walk from the Sofitel. Federal Donuts is known for their fried chicken (and donuts), and Dizengoff for their hummus. I couldn't decide, so I got some of each and took the food back to my hotel room for dinner. The hummus was amazing; it came with freshly baked pita and a small side salad, and everything was more than enough food for 1 person for dinner. The staff were extremely friendly, and I wouldn't hesitate to eat in the restaurant the next time. I highly recommend the hummus meal at Dizengoff.

    This place is amazing. Best hummus ever with freshly baked pita. Shakshuka on Sundays is a must. Go here.

    this place has very comfortable location, small itself but it has tasty variety of hummus. several times I tried shakshuka on sundays and it's very good for breakfast (only a bit salty for me).

    So you're thinking, "It's hummus. How good could it be?" Sit down and let me tell you. This is the caviar of hummus. (Even if you don't like caviar or hummus - this is on a higher plain.) I had the basic hummus plate to get to the heart of the matter as a first timer at Dizengoff (but a seasoned hummus diner). It was a WOW, that is the creamiest hummus in the world!! And I can say that since I have eaten hummus in several countries around the world. But wait! The pita, should be referred to as food of the angels. It was the lightest, fluffiest and tenderest pita I could have dreamed of, but even better. I immediately thought that one would not be enough, although I actually was stuffed before I got close to finishing my meal. I did find the hummus to be a bit salty and I like a lot of salt. My friend said that with the vegetable added, it balanced out the saltiness for her. All the same, I will forever be disappointed with any other hummus from now on since I don't live near a Dizengoff:( Hey, got any plans to open one in Atlanta? Call me:)

    We initially left to return the next day for carry out hummus. Basic hummus is about $10 or upgrade to lamb topping for $3 more. Comes with chopped cucumbers/pickles/onions. If you love hummus, you must try it. There are only 2 long communal tables and some counter seats, so carry out is a good way to go. So many good cheap eats on this block - you could get a hot fresh donut at Federal Donuts across the street when you're done!
