I hear there can be long lineups but we didn't see any. We were a rather large group and they handled our orders with each. I enjoyed ordering a lot of small dishes and sharing. Well worth a return visit!

Great selection of starters, I liked the Babaganoush the most. Chicken shawarma and chicken maboulet were nice too. Would highly recommend the jus d'citron menthe - very refreshing in the Morrocan heat in July. Never tasted the puddings but everything we had from here was tasty so I am sure they would be good. Friendly staff and nice atmosphere. Would... More

Been in Rabat for less than a week, decided to go for dinners with a Mortician friend. We had to wait for a table more than minutes, then put us on a table right by the Kitchen which was very tight, we had to squeeze ourselves in! Then we said it is very dark we couldn't read the menu? When... More

We visited the place following the advice from our hotel and we are are very grateful to them for the tip. A busy place at a busy street, we had to wait about 15 minutes for a table at lunchtime on a weekday, but the food made up for it. Great appetizers (try more than one!), and the shawarma with...

I ordered a chicken sharwarma followed by a syrian tea, then a soda drink. Starting with the shawarma, It was bad. I do not recommend it as it was very dry and tasteless, since the second bite I found myself forced to eat this meal. I personally prefer the Abtal alsham shawarma in Agdal. They had a small variety of... More

I cannot understand why this is not number one (but I'm glad it isn't because we always find a table)! The food is very reasonably priced (pas cher) and SO delicious. I cannot get enough of this place! From the humus and pita to fattoush salad or the chicken shawarma plus the lemonade with mint, everything at Yamal Asham is... More

This restaurant has become a regular visit everytime we are in Rabat. It serves fresh and delicious food for a small price. Be aware of long queues, especially on the weekends.

Yamal Achem consistently has excellent food at a great price. It is frequented by locals and tourists alike and everyone walks away happy! Along with the standard things, I would also advise anyone to get dessert, too--they have very tasty baklawa. I have been to Yamal Achem many times and I always leave well-fed and happy.

Thank Adele W
