This is one of our favorites for a day/night out... Today we are just enjoying dinner after work... Date night done right! The food is always good, filling and easy on the pocket... The lamb and rice are amazingly good! Drop by and treat yourself... You'll love it!

A coworker and I tried this for the first time and we both said we will be going back. He got the gyro platter and I got the beef shawarma. He said it was some of the best gyro he has ever had and I really enjoyed the shawarma and mixed vegetables with the yogurt sauce on it. Will definitely... More

The falafel, kibbeh, and hummous were fantastic. The chicken and the beef shawerma sandwiches were very good. Finished with the baklava which was excellent. The service could not have been better. Overall, a very enjoyable lunch and I will be back.

Nice place but watch out for the hookah that leaks it'll give you a headache and make you feel nausea I don't know if it was because it was leaking or the flavor (watermelon) other then that awesome place

I went there tonight for dinner with friends and everything we ordered was great with the only exception of the pita which was good. Hummus was perfect, falafel was the best I've ever had. Lamb was a little fatty and tough but the flavor was spot on. You must order the baklava to end the meal with perfection. It had... More

Went to Ya Hala for dinner with a friend after being impressed by the lunch. We ordered the babaganoush and I wasn't too pleased with taste - it lacked something. The pita that came along with it wasn't fresh either. However, we both enjoyed our entrees. I ordered the chicken shawarma platter and my friend ordered the chicken kabab platter.... More

When we went it was 3 pm on a Sunday. Slow service despite us being one of two tables ordering food. Good babaganoush, great schawarma, great lamb kabobs, the baklava was delicious! The salad that comes with the meals is just lettuce, onion , and a slice of tomato. The soda is a bit flat. They have a hooka lounge... More

I have seen this place for a couple years and have always wanted to try it. This was the first time that 4 of the 5 of us have ever been to a Middle Eastern cuisine restaurant.
