Wonderful, freshly prepared food, take away and eat in or outside. Lively street and lots of diners gave a real buzz. Staff are charming, helpful. A complete antidote to the brash, expensive emporia normally encountered in glitzy Dubai.

We ate shawarma, fattoush, hummus, kebab, and fresh squeezed pomegranate juice so good that I almost wept into it. Excellent meal, excellent price.

Amidst all the glitter, Al Mallah remains the last bastion of a middle eastern grill. After I was away from the region for about 6 years, this was the first shawarma stop on my return. It is a great place to eat in or take away. Fresh tasty food, in the most humble of surroundings and it just doesn't get... More

This is Lebanese fast food. The employees seem to be Asian and Egyptian. The service was friendly. The food was REALLY good. Everything we ordered was delicious. Excellent place for a quick bite while in Dubai's Satwa district. Nothing fancy but you will enjoy the delicious food. Very busy place but they got the food ready very quickly. Shawarma and... More

everyone talks about this place of being the best in dubai. Well there were only 1 - 3 dishes that might be in the '' best in dubai '' category. The cheese bread with shawarma meat and extra sauce is the best they have. but the staff is slightly incompetent. they gave me cheese bread only first, without meat inside.... More

Lovely smoky and moist kebabs. Tall, rich Sherbets in the shakes menu (avocado is surprisingly good!) Definitely get the Mixed Grill Platter and the Shawarma here. Some dips, breads and salads come free with your meal so check before ordering too much. All of this comes at a price that will make you smile!

This is one of the iconic places in Dubai and for a foodie like me to have not visited it in all these years did not feel right :) Thank God for Saturdays, at least you get a paid parking area in a crowded place like Satwa. The ambience of the place is not fancy, its street food after all.... More
