“So Tasty!”

Delicious sharwarmas - i visited 4 times on my week long stay :) The flavours were great and the free salad bar to go with was just as good. Informal and delicious
A little gem on Calle 10!

“What a wonderful find!”
Reviewed January 15, 2014

After wandering around in the rain looking for something appealing to eat after two weeks of traveling in the Yucatan, we were ecstatic to find Yala! The only problem is that they need to expand and seat more people! There is a wonderful selection of serve yourself side salads and sauces. The pita is fresh and thick and soft and pillowy and doesn't fall apart while you are eating your sandwich. The falafal is delicious. Mint lemonade and Basil lemonade are both good. We were SO happy to find this place.

“Genuine food!”
Reviewed January 15, 2014 via mobile

If you get tired of eating tortillas, try this simple but delicious place. It's not a "restaurant". They have 1 or 2 tables and a bar. I had a Israelita salad that would be perfect if it wasn't so hot, and my husband a kebab pita sandwich and he liked it a lot. Free salad table with all plates.

“Authentic Tasty and Freah”
Reviewed January 10, 2014 via mobile

Yala is a gem in Playa.
The salads are tasty. The shwarma is fresh, the falafel is made in front of you. The pita is perfect, soft and thick. The mint lemonade is perfectly refreshing.
These guys did it right and the location is easy to access.
