Review of Yalla Habibi - CLOSED

Yalla Habibi
Restaurant details
Reviewed 5 November 2015

There were three of us who were out to celebrate a friend's birthday and we got there just as they were closing. Ms. Melhem-Kuri was gracious enough to ask the assistant cook to turn on the stove again and we were quick to make our menu selections. As we waited for the food, Ms. Melhem kept us quite entertained as we shared experiences of our pasts in Mexico. Our food was average due to it lacking a bit more flavor. The falafel sandwich was rather dry; we are used to it having a dressing. The stuffed cabbage rolls were rather small and a bit bland; the vermicelli rice was very good, though. The cucumber water was also very refreshing and great-tasting. She also treated us to some "empanadas" although she'd asked the cook for some baklava but there was no more.

Sadly, no longer a bakery. We went for dinner. Mediterranean food is a family favorite and most of the other places in SPI all offer the same type of fare. Great service. Food was very fresh. Lamb kabob isn't very large meat portion, chicken was much bigger...both were delicious. The kids all LOVED the gyros! They were very accommodating. Service was good. Nice and clean family run place.

We loved the difference inside this great place. Staff were almost family like and the food was first class and carefully explained when we didn't understand what the dishes were - we were given little samples - awesome food - and very friendly service

Very very good. I have a hard time finding healthy food in a tourist area, but they have freshly made, healthy food. Uniquely made Mediterranean food. Homemade salad dressing, homemade hummus, homemade etc. Very tasty. I will go back.
