Opened on March, 2014, Operation falafel is a local restaurant for arabic food. It has its branches in UAE and KSA. It has a good range of food to offer from different comfort food options like falafel, sandwiches, salads etc to assorted platters.

Discovered accidentally, this restaurant has some lovely arabic vegetarian options. So simply a heaven for a vegetarian like me in Dubai. I got different options like classic falafel, stuffed falafel, sandwiches, wraps, foul, salads. The pita bread was nice and warm when served. The hummus was served in a semi flat bowl and the quantity was good. The size of falafel was fair and it came with its own hummus dip, some olives, pickles, cucumber and tomato slices on the side. It is enough for two persons and the price tag it carries is reasonable too.
As far as the taste is concerned, it was genuine. The falafel were nicely cooked but a little on the dry side. Hummus was creamy and fresh.
Overall the concept is good. It serves traditional street food and Ordering is easy. Service usually is good but not quick. The portions are usually nice and big. The servers are helpful. It is a nice and casual place to go out with family and kids.
So here I conclude my today’s review, I’ll get back with some more food/dining options for you.
