    Excellent food-for vegetarians, many options that are full of flavor, including smokey eggplant dip, tangy yoghurt/cucumber/garlic dip and delicious veggie stew with a giant fresh pita cooked in an oven and deliciously charred.

    Bab Al Yemen is a must-visit destination. The staff provided exceptional service, attending to my needs with care. The cuisine, particularly the fahsa, lamb Mandi, and chicken kabsa, was incredibly flavorful and satisfying. I had a delightful dining experience at the restaurant, enhanced by the pleasing ambience, decor, and overall atmosphere. It stands out as one of the finest Mediterranean establishments I've had the pleasure of visiting worldwide.

    Great place! I was recommended this place by a local. everything we ordered was delicious, large portion. Also by far, the best similar lamb dish I’ve had and the waiter’s made good recommendations and served warm chai at the end. Will definitely come back.

    Incredibly kind servers and delicious food! They also gave our large party of 8 a lot of grace when it came to staggered arrival times and delayed orders. Will definitely be returning!
