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.

Had a couple of friends in town & Al Mallah was the obvious choice to give them the famous ‘falafel & shawarma’ experience. They absolutely loved it & it’s definitely been put on the ‘must revisit when back’ list!

This place has excellent beef shawarma. The price is very steep. Don't get the shawarma plate as it's very expensive for not much food.
