Why did we dine here? – Yemeni’s Restaurant happened to be located in an area of San Francisco that we were in. A quick Yelp search uncovered this restaurant. There was a TV playing Middle Eastern music videos blaring in the background, along with a mostly Middle Eastern crowd. Being adventurous, we decided to give it a go.

Insider Tip – Order what the waitress suggests, not what you would order in a Mediterranean restaurant.

Cuisine – Middle Eastern
Location – Western Addition, San Francisco

Service – Yemeni’s Restaurant had a friendly waitress who helped us navigate the menu and even served us complimentary tea.
Verdict – Yemeni’s Restaurant is a pretty authentic Middle Eastern restaurant that will give you a taste of Yemeni cuisine. We look forward to trying the other traditional dishes.

Yemeni’s Restaurant Food Picks:

Yemenis restaurant San Francisco hummus tahini

Yemenis restaurant San Francisco tanour bread

Hummus Tahini ($4.50) came with some excellent Tanour bread that was clearly homemade and hot. One of the better versions we’ve had.

Yemenis restaurant San Francisco Haneed roasted lamb

Haneed (Roasted Lamb) ($12.95) is a traditional Yemeni dish that was recommended by the waitress. An excellent lamb dish that was extremely tender and lacked any gaminess. Highly recommended.

Yemenis restaurant San Francisco La Sanaa combo plate

La Sanaa Shish Combo Plate ($12.95) Shish Kabab, Shish Taouk & Shish Kefta was a solid dish but not exceptional. All the meats were cooked fine but the Haneed was clearly better.

Flavored Tea (Adani) ($1.50) was served to us for free, and was excellent. Slightly sweet, be sure to order this if you are not offered it.
