Innovative Mediterranean take

Ordered here two nights in a row for takeout, to bring back to hotel room close by.

Was very impressed with the freshness and quality on the first night so came back for larger order next night for bigger group

Tried the falafel wraps, hummus, tabouli, fattoush, green za’atar bread (best I have ever had - extraordinary tasty), foul, vine leaves. All very good, with a couple items including the tabouli excellent.

Will definitely be back as often in this area. Take out service very friendly and helpful.

Pros: Many vegan options, staff helpful in choosing, Very fresh, Friendly service

Inexpensive Lebanese street food

Inexpensive Lebanese street food.
I ate there three times recently. The food is good, not excellent, but inexpensive.
Large menu and many vegan options. They ask you to scan a qr code in order to see the menu, but one can insist to get a menu from them (on a tablet).
Modern and hip place, all kinds of guests.
From what I tried I liked “Balila” most.
Falafel not bad, too. Lentil soup could be better, it’s a bit bland.
At Operation Falafel one can go home satisfied for little money.

Dubai is expensive but alas here is a more affordable and delicious option. This wrap is 12 AED as of 2023.

Staff is friendly and service is quick. Great location on the marina so no complaints

Pros: Clearly labeled menu , Multiple vegan options , Good prices

Best falafel

Operation falafel has the best falafel in Dubai. Their sandwiches are fresh, tasty and filling. The menu items are marked vegan which makes it easy to order and understand. Lot of side options available like batata harra, salads, pickles, fries etc.

Quick, filling and tasty!

Delicious Falafel and Hummus

We went there for dinner and had the "Special Veggie" (Falafel, eggplant, hummus, pickles, mint leaves, tahini sauce, fresh tomatoes and lemon zest, served in baked bread) and Hummus as a side order. It was so delicious and the service was fast and very friendly.

I saw this Restaurant but didn't try it until I seen it on HappyCow.

The falafel was seasoned well and the platter was plentiful, I jus wished they served rice as well.

Pros: Good Price, Quick Service, Seasoned well

Cons: More vegan sides options, Wished the cucumber sauce was vegan

It's okay for a pit stop

I found this restaurant right on JBR. It was rammed. I ordered a spicey falafel wrap there's around 3 to choose from basically they are all falafel based choices, with different spices. So not any variation. Food came quickly tasted fine, nothing to write home about. I was put off a little by the massive rotating kebab skewer on full display whilst yr eating. Guess it wouldn't bother a non vegan too much. Il come back if I was stuck for food. It's okay for a quick pit stop.

Pros: Clearly outlined vegan options

Cons: Not as many options as you think.
