I found this restaurant from the Washingtonian Cheap Eats Magazine. I should have read the review first because I probably should have ordered what was suggested. I ordered the hummus which was good and suggested but I found the pita bread to taste a little stale. I also ordered the chicken kabob. The meat was not juicy, a little dry.... More

Ya Hala does a good job of filling the gap left by the departure of Lebnan Zaman. We ordered from them to cater a family gathering of about 15, and all our guests were satisfied. We had hummus, beef, chicken and lamb schwarma, and stuffed grape leaves, and all were good. They only have about 10 seats in the restaurant,... More

This cafe-style restaurant is perfect for a relaxed evening of great food and friendly service. The owner welcomed us with a big smile, and we enjoyed a fantastic appetizer of baba ghannouj. My meat shawarma entree was succulent and perfectly seasoned. My husband had the lahem meshwi (lamb kabab) and the combination of aromas and flavors was memorable. The place... More

The food tasted great. We loved being served what seemed like the owners. They were very friendly and made our dinner a great time. I wish we had a restaurant like this where we are from in Wisconsin. We really recommend it.

This restaurant is a hidden gem! The food is delicious and everything is made fresh! The staff is very kind and I even met the owner. I will definitely be back again soon!

We get take out from Ya Hala regularly. The food is very good! I love the mezza sampler with hummus, baba ghannouj, falafel, taboulleh, etc. and the fattoush salad. The kabobs are also great. This is a family run place and you can tell it's authentic. The service is always very friendly as well. I look forward to my next... More

What a find. Who knew that hidden in a tiny shopping strip mall this little gem existed. My boss took my office there for a staff lunch and I was surprised at how delicious it was and what a good value it is. I'm not a huge salad eater but the salad dressing that was on the house salad was... More

I found this restaurant by chance, and it is awesome! It's too bad it's not visible from Maple Ave. It's directly behind the My Eye Dr. by Amphora. We ate in...not fancy, but very clean. They could use some Lebanese music to break up the quiet. I usually go for hummus over baba ghannouj, but OMG, the baba (on the... More

This is not a place to eat in. Tiny setting, strip mall charmless. Most people do take out. We were ignored for what was clearly a VIP table of Lebanese men. Good food, not the best I've had. Chicken and rice were a little dry but nicely spiced. Salad was nothing special and a little overly vinegared. But oh the... More

Our family went to Ya Hala for dinner. It's a small, casual restaurant; pretty clean with nice framed art but nothing to write home about. Service was polite but also friendly. Hummus was very tasty with just right amount of oil. Ground beef kabob was also good. Lamb kabob was cooked right but a bit dry. Rice was tasty. But... More
