Our Favourite Place toEat in Tbilisi - Edit

We loved the food in Georgia and as a vegan family always had great options. Hummusbar stood out for us and we loved the food, atmosphere and people. We would highly recommend visiting Hummusbar when in Tbilisi and wish they could start a branch in Edinburgh too.

Pros: Almost entirely vegan menu, Healthy, fresh and tasty food, Great owners

Cons: None

Overpriced restaurant and not only vegetarian. No authentic falafel and hummus here! - Edit

I have been living in Georgia for more than 2 years and have heard that this restaurant would serve great hummus and falafel. And of course I had to go there.

I was utterly disappointed over the rather tasteless hummus and GREEN falafel especially since the place is called HUMMUS BAR and almost only have hummus and falafel on the menu. It should be there speciality and even be special.

The hummus was simple tasteless. Probably there was tahini in it but they forgot garlic, lemon, salt and pepper.

There was also olive oil in it but I think of lower quality because you couldn’t real feel its taste. I buy better hummus in the supermarket in Sweden. Yes, I know that hummus can be made in different ways but I have eaten falafel and hummus at the best falafel places in Stockholm, Berlin, Paris, Amsterdam, Barcelona and Beirut. (You can look at some of my previous reviews here or at Tripadviser). I have a lot of experience of eating Lebanese and Middle East food, so this was a great disappointment. You would expect better because of the name of the place and when you read the reviews here.

It is also difficult to understand how you can fail with two such rather simple dishes. You can easily make tasty hummus and falafel at home (already mentioned most of the ingredients in this review).

I would rather recommend you to eat Hummus in the Holiday Inn hotel lounge or Hurma cafe. Nothing special but better than this plain and tasteless cream of chick peas and tahini. And cheaper! This place is really overpriced but it is probably a touristtrap.
Also I can recommend you to have hummus in Amber bar, which you could enjoy with nice QUERI wine (amber wine_).

The falafel was completely green. And tasteless. I believe they forgot some species or used bad or plain chic peas. For the record, falafel should be green inside but brown on the outside since they are supposed to be deep fried.

If you want good hummus and falafel, check out Moulin Electrique in old town. A real nice place with young Georgian Hipsters enjoying Czech beer, falafel, hummus and good Georgian food.

On the positive side: service is nice and the atmosphere is genuine.

However, if you have no experience of eating really good falafel and hummus, you could come here for the ambience.

I am concerned with the overall SUPER GOOD rating here and tripadviser. Who is posting it or is it just that you used to eat falafel in Kebab places???

Pros: neat atmosphere

Cons: not authentic falafel and hummus, not tasty at all, overpriced

When I found this place I was saved. The best hummus and falafel in the city, very beautiful and friendly area, and people with kind smiles and decent sense of humor. If you haven’t been in Hummusbar before, you should definitely run up here!

amazing food ! - Edit

We were there a few days ago and had the hummus with chickpeas and pita bread, baked falafel, the baked cauliflower (both with a great tahini-dip) and homemade juice. Everything was super delicious and the owners were pretty nice ! We had a great time there and would go back at any time.

Delicious hummus - Edit

Very nice delicious hummus. Mostly everything is Vegan except two dishes (contains egg and honey). Nice cozy atmosphere but hard to find. For the first time I was searching like half an hour.

Pros: Hummus

Cons: A bit pricey for Georgian standard prices

Fresh ingredients - Edit

I visited in December 2016. It was a bit tricky to locate, but with the help of a local, we found it. I really liked the cosy interior and very fresh ingredients. I had a lentil soup to share (this was not on the menu yet) and baked eggplant with tahini. Also grabbed some hummus as takeaway!

Pros: Friendly staff, cosy

Best hummus in Tbilisi! - Edit

The place is located on the first floor inside a very typical Georgian inner courtyard. The owners have become dear friends to me soon after I started living in Tbilisi some years ago. Sivan and Shalva are two extraordinary people. They renovated the house themselves and it feels as if you are dining at their family table. I love to listen to their stories while enjoying their tasty food.
The hummus is my favorite, but they have plenty of other delicious dishes to chose from.
Very proud of them and always happy to eat at their place.

Updated from previous review on 2016-10-28

Pros: Fresh, healthy food!, A great alternative to the Georgian kitchen!, Warm, welcoming and smoke-free restaurant!

Cons: You might have to look twice before locating it.
