From Time Out Dubai Eating Out 2010
You don’t go to Al Mallah for ambience, you go to sample some of the city’s best cheese manakishes at nearly every hour of the day or night. The spot may be little more than a counter front, but the Satwa stalwart has long been a favourite stopover for late-night revellers on the way home. Equally adept is Al Mallah’s juicy shawarmas and crispy falafels. The restaurant also makes for a nice spot to people-watch, especially on weekend evenings, when hordes of young men drive around in circles to show off their cars.
