Reviews for Hummus Bar Express

Food is five star. Service and personnel is what gives this place one star. If I were the owner I'd be weary of employees. Cashier and kitchen staff chatting and joking in Spanish while myself and other customers are waiting at the front to be helped. Witnessed one frustrated customer leave because they didn't acknowledge him. No greeting from cashier, just something along the lines of, "What do you want?" My dish, a Schwarma plate, comes with choice of pita or laffa. full review

I just came back to hummus express for the first time in a while because my friend wanted to eat here. I asked the cashier what they suggested chicken breast or Shawarma. He suggested the Shawarma and have it with the Laffa and count on us fillers. So I took his suggestion. It was at least 75% fillers and less than 25% chicken. I could barely even taste the chicken.

Came here for a quick lunch when we when we were visiting LA and this is a pretty decent place. We had a couple of the shawarmas and also the hummus plate. I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of food. The shawarmas were well seasons and the beef one had a lot of oil which added flavor. The chicken one was naturally dry but nothing too bad. The hummus played was also pretty big and definitely filling. I recommend potentially one portion for two people.
