Description: In this hi-tech globalized world we live in, Arabic street food lost its roots, taste and fans. Falafel became fancy, Shawerma was stuffed in baguettes, and hummus turned pink. A bunch of food patriots joined together, and promised to unite and make a stand. With genuine roots, and a great belief in original Arabic dishes, we dusted off grandma's recipes, rolled up our sleeves and got down to business. We set up shop in a small warehouse, bringing back the original, cheap and delicious Arab street food for each and every one of you. So say hello to the authentic stuff, and Join the cause!

We came to Dubai for 10 days an are here for most of the meals. Back in London we wished they opened a branch here. Really recommend it, the portions are huge, the flavours are endless and the price is great!

Although we went there after 2:00 am "just a few minutes before their closing time" they were very welcoming and served us great fresh meals and juices.
The staff are friendly and the restaurant is very clean right before the beach.

Visted this place twice while looking for a light dinner in JBR, Dubai in November. It was perfect. We had a plate of falafel balls, humous, chicken schwarma, anda plate of fried haloumi. The food arrived with warm pits breads. We made delicious sandwiches with the bread and these plates of food. Falafel was crispy on the outside and softer in the middle. Schwarma tasty. Haloumi lovely. Humous very good. You get as much bread as you need along with the dishes its replenished as you go and is always hot. We sat outside enjoying the weather. The bill was affordable and for a light inexpensive dinner it is perfect. The staff on both nights were friendly and polite. We are sad they are not in Abu Dhabi.

We looked for something with a big variety for vegetarians. This place has modest pricing and fast service. The desserts are also worth mentioning.

We always call in here when we are in Dubai for a dose of comfort food. Lovely fresh falafel and hummus served with salad and fluffy hot flat bread.
The staff are always very friendly and there is a nice laid back atmosphere about the place. It is pretty much fast food but there is never any rush.
Tried a dessert this time too (see photo) and it was lovely.
