Nestled amongst the neon, bright shopfronts and bars of Green’s Court a small laneway off Brewer Street in Soho the original Yalla Yalla Beirut Street Food is a hip little restaurant serving Lebanese and Middle Eastern cuisine. Decorated with wooden tables, a black and white colour scheme, with yellow accents and cushions made from vintage scarves this buzzy little restaurant is run by chef/owner Jad Youssef and his wife, Aga, who oversees the front-of-house and the business. Their 2nd Yalla Yalla site is just north of Oxford Street on a cool corner site at Winsley Street with more space and all the same hallmark food and drink. Both locations are popular with the savvy Soho and West End crowd who adore signature dishes such as the sautéed chicken liver with garlic and pomegrante molasses.
Yalla Yalla is perfect for a morning coffee and pastry, lunch in or to take away, pre-theatre bites, post-sightseeing pit-stops, takeaway treats or as a meeting place for a night out with friends. It also sells flavoured Shisha.

"Sawda Djej" - Sauteed chicken liver with garlic and pomegranate molasses.
"A tiny Lebanese restaurant tucked down a dingy Soho alley may not sound promising, but Yalla Yalla has been turning away eager diners nightly since opening last year. Offering excellent Beirut street food, including fresh wraps and light mezze, its Kibbe Nayyeh – pounded raw lamb with parsley and bulgur – is especially good. Read more"
"Each item comes bursting with flavour, from smokey baba gannouj to spicy soujoc sausages or crispy makale samak."
"The variety of little mezze dishes to supplement the hearty mains (smoky grills with fluffy vermicelli rice, say) are fresh and balanced, and well-priced to boot. Read More"
"Mentioned in the Independent. Read more"
"Yalla Yalla, a gem of a joint up a hidden alleyway in what remains of the sleazy heart of Soho. Read more"
