Description: In this hi-tech globalized world we live in, Arabic street food lost its roots, taste and fans. Falafel became fancy, Shawerma was stuffed in baguettes, and hummus turned pink. A bunch of food patriots joined together, and promised to unite and make a stand. With genuine roots, and a great belief in original Arabic dishes, we dusted off grandma's recipes, rolled up our sleeves and got down to business. We set up shop in a small warehouse, bringing back the original, cheap and delicious Arab street food for each and every one of you. So say hello to the authentic stuff, and Join the cause!

We just ordered a few snacks for delivery but the order came very quickly, well within the stated 40 minutes and it was dinner time. The quinoa tabbouleh was tasty but a little expensive for what it was. Other starters are more reasonably priced and just as good. The falafel wrap seemed a bit salty but that could just be because I'm not used to fast food normally. However, it filled the gap. We liked that that a number of the sandwiches could be tweaked to your preferences, and the condiments and pickles etc were a good add-on.

Great experience at the Dubai Mall Operation Falafel prior our visit to the fountains and light show.
A delicious adventure of Arabic street food - falafel, manaeesh, hummus, shawarma and halloumi.
The staff were so attentive and friendly and guided us through the menu helping us to make the right choices - much appreciated by your Irish customers!
Would definitely recommend.

Great food. Service and the complementary bread varies depending which outlet you are visiting. Which is a strange cause normally the restaurants follow a standard service in all their outlets.

My husband and I walked along the marina path until we hit Operation: Falafel and we decided to stop in for lunch. We opted to eat outside and enjoyed a lovely lunch! We ordered hummus to start and sandwiches for lunch. The prices were extremely reasonable and the portions just filling enough. Definitely stop by for a bite to eat while in the area!

Food is tasty and was served quickly.
Seating options outside.
Had the chicken shawarma wrap small portion but very filling.
Musabahaa hummus was tasty.
Service when walking through the door to be seated was challenging, no one approached us. Was seated but no menus given so went to bar and collected my own menus.
Food is good value for money.
