Yalla Yalla

Squaremeal Review of Yalla Yalla ?

A welcome find down a jazzy old passageway between Berwick Street & Brewer Street, natty-looking Yalla Yalla serves ‘Beirut street food’ from a counter laden with baked goods. As well as falafel, shawarma & spicy potato or sausage wraps, there are savoury manaee’sh pastries with spinach or wild thyme & sumac, plus cherry or fig tarts. Bag a rustic wooden table & share some ‘highly affordable’ mezze (£3.50-5.50 each), & ‘amazing, fresh & tasty’ mains such as charcoal-grilled minced lamb skewers (aka kafta meshoué) or marinated king prawns. Wines from the Bekaa Valley, including Château Kefraya, come in at around £4 a glass; otherwise, fruit juices (pomegranate, carrot, apple/mint/ginger) are available for refreshment. Be sure to book ahead or be prepared to wait, since it’s tiny & very popular.

A detail overlooked

Editor's pick I went into Yalla Yalla for lunch. I have always wanted to go as I’ve been told it’s a great place, but was left disappointed. The lamb was lovely and I do believe they make excellent food but a few bits of detail need to be addressed! Avoid sitting on the benches which surround the main area upstairs - they can only be described as the most uncomfortable seating in the whole of London! The cushions( if you can call them that) do not measure up with the bench, which might leave people prone...

Don't let the price-less menu on the website fool you into thinking this is one of those places where if you need to know the prices, you can't afford it. This Beirut street food cafe is in fact highly affordable. The slow and cheerless service was offset by the fantastic mezze, which included an astoundingly generous portion of tiger prawns, calamari and whitebait on a bed of deep fried aubergine. Always one to judge a middle eastern restaurant by its hummus (or hamos, hommos, hommus, homos, houmous,...

I loved Yalla Yalla, the food and service was excellent and all for a really reasonable price. If you go you must try the sauteed chicken livers, the semelina dessert with rose water ice cream is amazing! Can't wait to go back and have the dessert again!

Editor's pick Yalla Yalla was a fantastic find in an alley off Brewer Street in Soho. The menu is Beirut street food and it was some of the best Lebanese food we have eaten. Both the mains of Shish Taouk (marinated chicken skewers) and Kafta Meshoue (minced lamb and parsley skewers) were full of flavour, perfectly cooked and well presented with a sumac onion salad and vermicelli rice. They were also brilliant value for money. The restaurant is small but the atmosphere on our visit was perfect. It was helped along...

was at Yalla Yalla on Thursday dinner, the place was full, and we did not have a reservation but we were the lucky ones and the waitress told us to wait around 10-15 min and we will get a table, and thats exactly what have happened… the food is amazing, so fresh and tasty, friendly and helpful waitress too. the place is small (only 9 tables) so its better to book for future… but is worth the waiting time, going back again for my birthday party:)) the big advantage is that they do sell shisha during...

    The Swindian :: Restaurant review: Yalla Yalla | The Swindian

    Yalla Yalla has a small menu, but we wanted to order every single item. As we were simply snacking, we ordered 4-5 of their mezze to share, including the hommos, falafel, soujoc and baba ghannouj. Everything arrived very quickly, and we attacked without hesitation. One of my companions, who has been to Israel, firmly said: ‘I allow you to bring friends here. This is a good place.’ We were showered with pita bread and an array of different flavours. The hommos made me swear off Tesco hummus for life, and the soujoc made me rethink my dislike of tomato. As we tucked in, conversation slowly desisted, which to me is the...
