I like the pizzas and vegetarian choises here but not keen on the kebab. As I live across the street I have ordered take away pizza quite often and it's always been good.

Awful. I've had several times raw pizzas and the vendors try get more money from you if you're wasted. Cannot recommend to anyone.

We had takeout food from Jalla Jalla in April 2014. Some of us had pizza and I had a falafel/rice portion. The food didn't have much taste and it was really dry, there wasn't enough sauce.

Came here for a quick bite to eat, for the first time. Ordered two doner kebabs in pitta bread and a pepperoni pizza. Pizza was really good and our son enjoyed it. Our kebabs weren't the best we've eaten but it certainly filled a gap. They came without salad but we were allowed to help ourselves to the salad cart.... More

Jalla Jalla used to be one of my favourites, but they have gone down a bit in quality and style of cooking. They used to have a more "authentic" Egyptian/Lebanese touch. They are still pretty okay, and I visit them from time to time to get some foul medammes, a rarity in Finland. They also serve other rarities (in Tampere... More

An kebabhouse run by Egyptians. Good basic food, nothing special. One to go to after a heavy night of drinking.
