Al Mallah

Diyafah Street stalwart and street food favourite

  • Al Mallah
Al Mallah has a reputation as one of the city’s best Arabic/Lebanese joints for good reason. Grab a table on the pavement to get a front row seat at the living theatre that is 2nd of December Street (formerly Diyafah Street), then go to town on the menu (hearty wraps start from just Dhs5, so you can dine like a king on a limited budget). For those eating on the run, opt for a chicken or lamb shawarma, so succulent and moreish it’s difficult to settle for just one. Otherwise, the mixed grill is a great place to start – a vast plate of griddled meats, including kofta, lamb and chicken, complete with fries, herby-tomato flatbread and grilled onion. Sides are fairly standard Arabic fare – fattoush salad, hummus, rocca salad – but don’t forget to wash it all down with a thirst-quenching, freshly squeezed fruit juice. Al Mallah

    I visited their branch in Mamzar Area. I ordered chicken shawarma and informed the person who packs shawarma i dont need burned chicken. Since shawarma rol had some part badly burned due to over heating i felt it was necessary for me to watch which one he cuts and packs for me. I was surprised instead of i telling i dont need burned, he kept packing burned one for me. When i informed cashier, the person who cut started fighting i didnt pack burned. I made them open packed shawarma to prove it was bruned. Cashier instructed to pack new one for me. Sorry to say same guy who made shawarma earlier was making new one. But now he was abusing in arabic languange and making shawarma with too little chicken. I refused to collect shawarma and took my money back.
    These waiter and staff dont have manners and they prefer having only arabic customers.

    I shall raise complaint to Dubai Municipality and Economic Dept soon on this issue

    I liked the Cheese Mankish the last time i was there it was not bad has the reviews say so
    i did not like the service though as i ordered a Mankish 2 Shawarmas
    and it took around 35 minutes to get to my table before i had received it i complained to the waiter and he just said if i wanted to eat i had to wait for a while or leave horrible service and the waiters faces out there were as if they never cared about what you said or ordered
    I m food lover and i like to enjoy my meal with good service and price
    and i feel its not worth the money at this diner
