Ya Hala Grill - Closed

2100 S. Colorado Blvd. Denver, CO 80222 | Southeast Denver | 303-758-9376

Location Description:

It's obvious from the outside that Ya Hala is not going to be a white-tablecloth kind of place. But that's okay, because what's on offer here is the honest article: Syrian food done traditionally and with surprising talent. From the free pita and hummus to the perfect grilled chicken and unbelievably good baklava, everything is a treat for both the adventurous eater and his wallet.
