I love love your food. Being from a Syrian background I really appreciate your flavors and care for your food. I was disappointed that you did not have the mushroom turnover, not sure what it was called, so would appreciate a sign of what you are out of. Please open moe locations near the Piedmont or Lakeshore area!!

Thought the price was a little on the high side. The staff was very pleasant

What You'll Get

Despite thrilling new technology, there is still no toaster that can turn a grilled-cheese sandwich into a full Middle-Eastern meal. Celebrate delicious falafel, hummus, and pita with today's deal: for $10, you get $20 worth of authentic Middle Eastern fare at Amba, located in Oakland. This Groupon is valid toward dine-in, carryout, or catering.

Amba's menu is chock-full of delectable vegetarian and kosher Middle Eastern-style eats made daily from fresh ingredients. Start off with a savory bowl of lentil soup ($6), or put hand shovels to work using a warm pita to scoop up freshly made hummus topped with chickpeas and a drizzle of olive oil ($8). Try out a filling falafel pita sandwich ($8), or opt for the hearty sabich pita sandwich, stuffed to the brim with fried eggplant, Israeli and cabbage salad, a hard-boiled egg, and tahini ($8). A variety of crisp green salads are available in full ($7–$9) or side ($4) sizes, and any three options—such as tabouleh, Israeli couscous, and baba gannouj—may be combined into one Transformers-style megadish ($9). Quench palates with a glass of house-made iced tea or fresh mint lemonade ($3 each), or balance your main mouth events with seasonal sides such as Judean flatbread, Greek spinach rice, and Babka cake.

Step up to the counter, present your Groupon to the cashier before ordering, and then kick back in Amba's laid-back atmosphere with friends, family, and sentient marionettes. Amba is closed on Saturdays.


Amba has been praised by the East Bay Express, the Tasting Table, and the SF Chronicle. Yelpers give it a four-star average.

  • Served with a side of olives and pickles, Amba's sabich will have you imagining that Wornick's dreams of a chain of Israeli joints will come true--and fast. – Tasting Table
  • As falafel joints go, Amba approaches greatness: It's quick, fresh, inexpensive, and clean as a whistle, with food so good carnivores won't even miss the meat. Just one caveat: It's also kosher, so don't expect to find them open for business on Friday nights or Saturdays. – East Bay Express
