The first Yalla Yalla, in Green’s Court, Soho, was opened in late 2008 by chef Jad Youssef and his partner Aga Ilska. Beirut-born Jad met Aga, who is Polish, while the two worked in a central London Lebanese restaurant – she ran the front-of-house while he was in the kitchen.Their dream and their passion was to open their own business, and when the tiny Soho site became available they jumped at the opportunity even though it is only 28 seats, the first Yalla Yalla was an instant hit with the local Soho crowd. Opening a larger restaurant just off Oxford Street, offering informal and relaxed Lebanese and other Middle Eastern cuisine.Yalla Yalla operates a walk-in policy but accept bookings for parties of 10 or more.
Loved the decor and atmosphere there. Unfortunately the food doesn't live up to the expectation - meat and falafel weren't seasoned well, all a bit bland and very average. Will not go back
Our family of 5 had a dinner at Yalla Yalla Saturday evening. Staff and management were good and attentive. The ambience is warm and comfortable. We ordered three mix grills and some cold mezzes. We have lived in the Middle East for many years so maybe a bit unfair to compare from our experience but overall it was OK. With 4 beers it came to approx £20 a head.
Delicious food and good prices - about £30 a head for as much as you can eat! Helpful staff. Always happy to eat here.
I heard good things, so I dropped by for a wrap. It was pretty bad, it’s only chicken and pickles which I had to pick out. Low quality meat with a strange taste and smell. Maybe an off day, so I’m going to drop by again and give it another go. Nice staff.
Slightly unfair to judge this place on this visit as we were there for a large Christmas meal. So I haven't scored it down for the fact that they had to bring everything out as it was ready resulting in starters coming out after mains.
The quality of the food though was just ok, I've certainly had better from this chain before. Definitely worth a try if you like Middle Eastern food
