If you have a hankering for lamb, this is the place to go! Formerly Yemini's, the restaurant is now called Arabian Sky, and the selection of lamb dishes should satisfy even the most hard core lamb lover, from lamb chops to baked dishes and stews. But don't restrict yourself to just the lamb. The breads are authentic yemenite, both the... More

I visited this restaurant 5 years ago and it was good and I visited it again in 2016 with my friends and the food was good still but the place was too dirty more than what I could describe.....the service was even worse...they were very rude and missed most of our order..I don't recommend it to anyone unless you order...

We chose this simply because it was across the road from our hotel. It has a quiet atmosphere [?not so popular even on a Friday night] but is a hidden gem. having eaten at plenty of middle eastern restaurants, I still found a few new options here. It was delicious - mixed hummous, babaganous and labneh was great [excuse spelling],... More

How first try at this restaurant as we where looking for something different. Wonderful fresh food and great menu options. The value for money alone is worth a visit....... However the quality freshness and flavour of the food will see us back.....

My wife and I recently had lunch at Yemeni's Restaurant (aka Arabian Sky). We shared the lamb and veggie Saltah and the lamb Haneed, both traditional Yemeni dishes. The lamb in each dish was falling-apart tender and moist. The Saltah is sort of a pulled lamb with veggie stew, and is scooped up with Yemeni bread. The Haneed was a... More

We took our niece who has just moved to SF for an authentic middle eastern meal and found ourselves at Arabian Sky (new name and new owner). The food was excellent and quite different in spice (fenugreek foam with the lamb) than the usual Mediterranean ( Israeli, Turkish, Jordanian, Persian) with which we are familiar. The lentil soup, trout and... More

Now called Arabian Sky. Perhaps a new chef, or because Ramadan is over, but we had a very nice experience. Mezza plate had some of the best hummus we have ever had, and that includes what we ate in Israel. The wonderful lamb Saltah with fenugreek came boiling in a clay pot and continued for many minutes as we slowly... More

If you know "middle eastern" food, this place is really not good. I had tried it for Iftar with a friend last year, and i really did not like it.. had a bad memory of it. This year my friend wanted to return for Iftar so i decided to give it another try - especially that they are under new... More

Had I been a TripAdvisor writer before, I would have gone four starts on this, as I just really get a kick out of that place. It's worth going back and trying again. Right now, they are going through what appeared to be a rather sudden ownership transition. A lot of the regulars are from the local mosque and some... More
