I grew up in the middle east and eating at the Yemen Cafe took me back to all the wonderful foods and flavors I grew up with. As soon as we walked in, we were welcomed by a very friendly waiter and the wonderful aroma of roasted lamb. The meal started out with a delicious lamb soup, and salad. My husband and I also had the yemeni tea, which was really good. We then split a dish of roasted lamb which was out of the world. The lamb literally fell of the bone, and the accompanying rice was delicious. It was truly a memorable meal and I can't wait to go back. (I never write reviews but this place really exceeded my expectations)

Best lamb in New York City and maybe the USA. Most people order a dish called hanid. Very original soup. Many excellent vegetarians dishes. All what I guarantee you is it's a place where you are going to forget about your diet. I have been customer in this place for more than 10 years and the taste didn't change at all. They keep the same menu forever. Yemeni use also all kind of original spices. You also must eat there during Ramadhan.

This is a wonderful restaurant to eat with your family or friends. The food is great and the prices are unbelievable. Give it a shot.

Wonderful food, fairly priced, with the friendliest service in Brooklyn. The host literally followed our party of six -- the only non-Yemenis in the restaurant -- into the street to wish us good night and thank us. When we complimented a dish of roast lamb, he brought out another helping, on the house. Be sure to order the salta and the house soup to start. A true gem.

The food is ample and decently priced. The rashoosh is huge (easily the size of car’s hubcap). The lamb soup is salty and abundant served in a generous bowl. I tried the roast lamb which included the bone and was pleasantly surprised by the hearty, meaty flavor. The ful madamas was layered and complex; the fava beans had clearly been simmering for hours, absorbing the flavors of their marinade.
