Love this place - we make it a must each time we are at Paddington. The food is so good and authentic. Highly recommend the chicken and beef shawarma - protein overdose!

When I visited I was offered beer. It was a lager style beer which went well with the meal. I would imagine therefore that they are licensed. If in doubt give them a call, they staff were very helpful.

They have a menu online. Google YaHala Paddington and go to their website. Trip advisor rules don't allow me to post the link directly.
