Saker Bin Zayed Al Falahi Building Hamdan Street (at opposite Maha Rotana Hotel), Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

Serves meat, vegan options available. Franchise chain was originally veg but added meat to its menu. Offers falafel sandwiches in different international flavors. Dairy and cheese is used, so vegans need to specify.

First Review by food lover

Very good quality food... but read my review! - Edit

We ate here for several days, during our trip in Dec 2014. We couldn't really fault the food quality - it was all very good, delicious, and all veggie. There were no meat listings on the menu, so not sure why this entry is classified as "veg friendly" on Happy Cow?
All staff handling food were wearing gloves, and it was very clean on the inside.
The spiciest sandwich was the Indian, followed by the Greek, Emirate, and Mexican. But, they were all very good!
There were good quality photos on the walls of the various sandwich offerings, but you couldn't really tell at a glance what all the ingredients were. I mention this, for those of you who have allergies!!
However, the full contents of each sandwich was listed on a cardboard board at the till. The board looked really worn out, so the management needs to consider replacing it!
Or better yet, they could really do with putting a framed sign on the wall listing all the ingredients of each sandwich (instead of the tatty looking cardboard at the till).
Considering the very good food quality, the price was perfect. 12 dirhams got you a large falafel sandwich, and 18 dirhams got you a large sandwich, french fries, and a soft drink.
My only other minor criticism would be that the tables & stools in there were very flimsy. And one table had a cracked piece/broken piece which was held together by silvery duct tape!! Also, the door handle to go outside was also held together by selotape.
So, they could really do with sorting those few issues out.
All that aside, the food was delicious, and worthy of going back again.
It was easy to locate, and open 8am to midnight all days (except Fridays when it was open from 4pm to midnight).

Pros: Very good quality food & delicious, Clean - staff wore gloves making food, Open all day

Cons: Tatty cardboard at till- ingredient list, Needs framed ingredient list on wall, door handle, duct tape on table

webmaster 23 Feb 2015 - Hi food lover,
It was reported that they now offer a meat shawarma a few months ago. If you're able will you please verify this?
Thanks, teamCow

food lover 21 Mar 2015 - Hi Webmaster / teamCow,
When we visited in Dec 2014, there was no signage indicating any meat infiltration.

However, I did read someone else's review on happycow, of the same company, in a different branch suggesting that they were turning non-veg.
I hope this doesn't happen! I will be returning back to the same restaurant in Dec 2015, so will report back here.
