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.

Tired of fancy restaurants? Tired of “artificial” restaurants? This is your place. Enjoy its genuine multicultural ambient, good food, quick service and good prices while seeing families, couples and friends enjoying its terrace (a bit noisy in account of the cars)
