A teeny NY restaurant (prep tables had to moved so we could get to the restroom in the back), but with delicious mideastern dining options. We got a table easily early on a Friday evening, but all the tables were soon full. We enjoyed a...More

Happily came across this restaurant by accident. Ordered the lamb hummus which was fantastic (and a huge portion). Prices were very good as was service.

Gazala's is a very good neighbourhood restaurant serving authentic middle eastern food. The falafel, taboule and hummus are all very good and the babaganoush is a real stand out. The service is more than adequate and my family enjoyed our meal here.
