This fast-casual restaurant is focused on creating Mediterranean dishes with bold Middle Eastern flavors. The concept is modeled after Middle Eastern street food and serves vegetarian and vegan-friendly menu options so there are options for all palates and preferences. Because of Yafo, Charlotteans now know how to correctly pronounce shawarma.
Cuisine Type: Mediterranean
Ambience: Casual Dining
I found this gem a few months back when I first moved to Charlotte and have been a loyal customer since. My favorite menu item is the 'create your own bowl' option which usually ends up lasting me for two meals because of their large portions. They have a large selection of fresh toppings, sides, and proteins, and everything tastes so good and authentic all at a great price (~$15/bowl with chicken, falafel, and cauliflower give or take) - life hack: use the pita bread they give you to make a falafel and cauliflower sandwich with their garlic sauce. SO GOOD! The service is also great! The employees are super friendly and patient. They also offer a rewards program that they don't really advertise at all, so make sure to ask when you go in so you can start earning some points! The one thing I wish was they offered was nutritional information! Regardless, as long as this place is around, I'll be there. Go check it out for yourself!
It's hard to find good, healthy food that also tastes great. All too often we hear that healthy food is boring and bland. Who has time for that? Yafo Kitchen shows that healthy food can be delicious and exciting too. Their Israeli hot chicken is made with fresh, all natural ingredients and spices. It's a flavor explosion that will leave you wanting more.
Delicious. All the food is made fresh and served with a smile. They have their own lemonades and they are all delicious. Sign up to get points and get discounts off your order. Please go and try
Food and service is amazing. Found my new hot spot! Their organic drinks are also REALLY good, i'm hooked on the Blackberry!
Absolutely wonderful meal! All items were fresh and delicious. Enjoyed the bowel with pita bread. Lots of delicious rice, couscous, vegetables, and chicken proten options.Unique tea beverage choices. We had the cucumber and mint, very refreshing. Great staff, they are attentive and anticipate your needs. We had carryout bowels and staff brought carryout bags before we left. A mother was there with 2 small toddlers in high chairs. She apologized for food spills. Staff responded that they were there to meet her needs and cheerfully swept up the dropped food. Looking forward to returning
