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.
I had visited this place last year and since then I had been going every month. Literally loved it. Great vibes great food great people. Proper modern Lebanese - even a gateway to what Lebanon is nowadays. Sadly I went recently for Saturday lunch. I was surprised and disappointed greatly. I am not sure if the place changed management but it felt like a totally different place. Food was not that good, the chef mixed up the order, they were playing a horrendous music, totally irrelevant to the theme, super loud, the staff was nice but very inexperienced. I am going to give it another chance a s I adored this place and I hope it's going to be the same as before.
Meat was a bit dry on its own and lemonade could have been less sweet and more tart but the bread was great, the stuffed vine leaves were some of the best I've had and portions vs price were good for Central London. I would go back again if in the area. I didn't have a cocktail as it was early but they looked divine.
Absolutely delicious authentic Lebanese food in a very cozy yet contemporary setting. Lively and full of atmosphere with very welcoming and helpful staff. Easy access from Oxford Street.
Very easy food, fairly priced, and yummy. The service is a bit all over the place, but other than that... all good!
Great food, staff was friendly, portions could be better but a good dinning experience.
