Nice Lunch Spot! - Edit

Perfect place to go for a filling, inexpensive, tasty lunch. Staff were not the most efficient but the atmosphere outdoors was nice so we didn't notice that much. I've tasted a lot of falafel and this was one of the best!

Pros: Tasty, Cheap, Filling

Cons: Slow service

amazing falafels! - Edit

This place was reasonably cheap for what you get and the falafels were absolutely amazing! Myself and my boyfriend were a little bit disappointed with the hummus but the rest of the food was delicious!

in top 3 falafels I've ever had - Edit

I used go to hummus bars (it's a chain located in various parts of the city) a lot back when I lived in Budapest and the reason is the consequent high quality of the food. Their falafels are super crunchy and tasty, and the hummus is smooth and tasty - I can't say a bad word about it. The salad has a bit of a 'pickled' feeling, which might not fit everyone's taste, but I can only see as an advantage. Moreover, they serve free homemade lemonade during the summer and turkish tea during the winter, which is a very nice thing.
Hummus bar in Oktober 6 street is the best of all the restaurants in the chain, and as far as I know the only one that bakes their own durum/pita (as of late 2015) - the only thing I would mark as an area for improvement in other restaurants of the chain. The home-baked goods are delicious and go perfect with what I would describe as one of the best falafels I've ever had. I absolutely recommend!!!

EDIT
I went there again after 1,5 years and I must say that the quality dropped what some friends living in Budapest have confirmed :-( The hummus was not the same!

Tasteless hummus - Edit

Unfortunately my hummus salad was bland. The hummus lacked all of the ingredients needed to make hummus delicious. It was basically chick peas and tahini, it didn't have lemon juice, olive oil, salt etc.

Good! - Edit

I had the hummus and fried eggplant on pita, it was very good. I did request no eggs, and it came with sliced egg, so I sent it back. They were very apologetic. I look forward to going back and trying other things, like the Turkish salad.
It has a fast food feeling, so good for lunch or quick dinner.

Tasty food, great value - Edit

Had the mixed falafel hummus plate which included mushrooms and chickpeas, this came with the homemade pitta bread and some chilli dips for the table. Great selection of vegan options and also some meat to keep the omnis happy. Very good price for a filling meal.

Pros: Awesome vegan options, Open late, Cheap

Cons: We found the staff to be surly and unfriendly

Loved it! - Edit

I went to this hummus bar in december, while on a short stay in Budapest. I have to tell you that I was amazed!
I was greeted with hot tea and after that I ordered the normal hummus and falafel plate. The falafel were crunchy and the hummus was smooth as hell! Really one of the best hummuses I've ever eaten. The prices were great for such excellent food. I'll definitely be returning when I'm in Budapest the next time.
The only thing is... I don't really like the fact that they also sell a lot of meaty foods. It would be excellent if the hummus bar were completely vegan. What a dream!

Pros: Amazing hummus, tasty falafel, great price

Cons: Not vegan (serves also meat)

Excellent hummus and falafel - Edit

This branch of Hummus Bar serves meat, but it's conveniently located and has delicious vegan options. The hummus was great, the falafel was good and crunchy and the bread was huge and delicious. I'd go back again if I could!

Leckeres Essen, tolle Lage - Edit

Die Hummus Bar befindet sich sehr zentral zwischen der St-Stephans-Basilika und dem Parlament, daher eignet sie sich gut für einen Zwischenstopp bei einer Stadtbesichtigung.
Das Essen war sehr gut, die Falafel knusprig, der Hummus cremig und das Gemüse frisch. Angeboten werden auch selbstgemachte Pommes.
Für etwa 5 € wird man satt.

Pros: Lage, Leckeres Essen

Cons: Mittags recht voll

falafel heaven - Edit

super relaxed place with fantastic staff. everybody speaks English, the dishes are cheap and the portion sizes are big. you get a shot of home-made lemonade when you arrive. we loved it. I had the falafel main with two sides and a falafel wrap on another occasion - both great. falafels are a bit over fried at times but still good - the hummus makes up for it ;)

Pros: cheap & plentiful, friendly staff, fast arrival food

Cons: it is fast, deep fried food

Just delicious - Edit

Went here after having visited the synagogue of Budapest, just few meters from Hummus Bar.
I was welcomed by a very nice waiter and felt immediately comfortable in there. The guest area is divided in 2 levels and nicely decorated, with cool quotes written on the wall.
I sat down, another nice waitress came, brought me the menue and a free mint tea. I ordered a home-made lemonade and the Falafel main dish. This includes Falafel, 2 fresh and warm Pita bread and then one can chose 2 side dishes from Hummus, salad, rice or...some other option. I took Hummus and salad. I was in Falafel-Hummus-heaven and superfull afterwards. Nonetheless I ordered a Baklava as dessert - also very nice and came with coconut flakes on top (never had it like this before, but was really tasty).

I can only recommend going there :)

Great hummus!! - Edit

As one would expect, this place had fantastic hummus! We came here for dinner and ordered fava bean hummus, couscous soup, and a carrot salad to share for dinner. The meal was great and not very expensive at all! (That plus 2 beers was about $13 USD!) The staff was very friendly and gave us a small glass of their homemade lemonade upon arrival at the restaurant. Had outdoor seating and was a very easy walk from our hostel near St. Stephens. Would definitely go back!

great falafel sandwich but rude staff - Edit

Great place to get a falafel sandwich for under $3 but one of the guys here was quite rude to me for reasons unknown.. maybe he was having a bad day? No idea what happened but boy did I catch some attitude. Well it is what it is. Next time I'll hit a different location and just do take out. Four stars for food, 1 for staff. Three overall.

Pros: hummus, falafel, inexpensive

Cons: rude staff

favorite hummus bar - Edit

This was my favorite hummus bar in Budapest. We came in after a long walk in the cold and were greated with free small cups of delicious warm mint tea. There are plenty of tables and especially the room in the back looked very comfortable and cozy. I had a falafel sandwich which was fresh and yummy. My husband had their shakshuka hummus plate which was SOOO delicious that I wanted to steal it from him.

Pros: shakshuka hummus plate, welcome with warm tea, friendly staff
