Al Mallah is a great grab-and-go restaurant. The shawarma and falafel offered is absolutely fab. I especially recommend the chicken shawarma as it is a unmissable classic. It is best to come with a car and order with the friendly staff outside, though you can...More

Garlic Labneh was worth ‘dying for’. They didn’t have Baba Ganush but it’s comparable thing ...name escapes me.. was mind blowing. Falafel was made to perfection. Tabuli simplay amazing. Their hummus was extraordinary. Streetside. Outdoor seating amazing service and most amazing food.

Love their hummus, garlic paste and cheese roti. Their falafels are amazing as well. Be sure not to miss out on their Al Mallah special juice or try their Avocado shake.

Great quality price, nice staff, in the heart of the city, this is a must stop. Avoid on WE because its busy and crowded. For lunch take hummos, french fries, fatouch salad and a juice, you will love it.

If you happen to be in the area, AlMallah is a must try. Their hummus is good and so is their chicken taooq. Super fresh and very affordable. Their flafels are also good and crunchy, which is how I like them. I don't really care...More
