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 Groupon to Amba in Oakland. Choose between the following options:

  • For $5, you get $10 worth of authentic Middle-Eastern fare. This option is valid toward dine-in or carryout.
  • For $45, you get $100 worth of Middle-Eastern catering from Amba's catering menu for pickup or delivery, though the delivery fee is not included in this Groupon.

Amba's chefs take tongues on a Middle-Eastern tour with a menu full of vegetarian and kosher eats. Warm up stomach muscles with a savory bowl of lentil soup ($6), or put hand shovels to work using a pita to scoop up freshly made hummus bowls topped with chickpeas and a drizzle of olive oil ($8.50). Pita pros stuff sandwiches with sabich—a mix of fried eggplant and hard-boiled eggs ($8.50)—and falafel, made with fresh herbs and chickpeas recently hatched from eggpeas ($8.50). Diners can set taste buds on fire with the tomato-sauce-soaked shakshuka ($10) and quickly extinguish the flames with a grape-leaf blanket of dolmas ($2). Crisp green salads fill mouths in full ($8) or side sizes ($4), and any three varieties—such as Moroccan carrot, couscous, and baba ganouj—can be fused into one Transformers-style three-salad combo ($10).

Amba also supplies catering, serving hummus-heavy meals at corporate events and ventriloquist-dummy conventions throughout the Bay Area. The Classic package satiates group hunger with four salads and plentiful pitas ($13/person), and the Jerusalem Feast lays out a Mediterranean smorgasbord of falafel balls, dolmas, and feta cheese ($18/person).
