I used to love this restaurant. The food is good and the atmosphere is interesting. I didn't want to write a negative review, but the last two times I have eaten here the service has been terrible. The worst of any place I have been to Rabat. Both times my food got cold before I had the proper utensils to... More

Very busy on weekends, hard to get a table and it's just first come first serve...so there are some aggressive customers. I enjoy their sides of hummus, falafel, fattouche etc. You can order an assortment of them if you ask. Every time we've tried to order chicken shawarma, they say a plate isn't possible, but a sandwich is ok. Why?... More

We were a large group, so it was a tight fit, but we had a wonderful dinner here. Giant salad platters with hummus, eggplant, beets, so many delicious things to try. I got the chicken schwarma platter over hummus. It was so much food! I loved the atmosphere too!

My friends often get the shwarma, which is often not as good as it should be for the price. But the place is always packed, and it's nice to have some traditional middle eastern options! I'll keep coming back to try some other things!

Yamali sham is among the best affordable restaurants in Rabat and it's well known which make it very crowded and busy, the service is sometimes rude, but the food served is great and offer the best oriental experience in all the city of Rabat.

We really enjoyed both our visits to this popular and buzzing restaurant, situated on the main road just by one of the tram stops. We chose a range of veggie starter dishes to share and were really impressed with freshness, portion sizes and the overall quality of the meal. We had some great juices too and there's a desk by...

It's a very good restaurant, but a lot of people know it. Combine that with affordable prices, and it becomes very busy. We were lucky to get a table for 2 right away, and had a feast. Ordered a little bit too much I'm embarrassed to say, but enjoyed every bit of it. The mixed grill, the hummus, the salad... More

Delicious Food! Salads and entrees are very good value. The decoration is beautiful. We had a very nice lemon with mint juice that we recommend. Can't wait to go back.
