Al Khabiya [is] a piece of falafel paradise. Al Khabiya has been around for more than 20 years in Abu Dhabi. Their falafel are freshly made with high-quality ingredients.

Leoni Connor-Suttie The only falafel I have ever tried that I enjoyed was at Cafe Arabia in Al Karama. It’s both cheap and really delicious.

Siyi Feng Al Liwan. It's a Syrian restaurant, and we never loved falafel until we had it here.
