“Good shawarma served here”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Located at the Northern end of the Cenang strip of shops and restaurants, it's quite small and basic. But serves good shawarma sandwiches, the meat was well cooked. the shish touk was though nott that delicious but shawarma was truly edible

“Quick bite”
Reviewed 3 April 2014

Good place for a quick bite, we stopped off at yasmin on our first day for quick evening meal after traveling. The service was friendly and efficient and the food was adequate. I was a little disappointed with the quality of the meat and of the lack of options on the menu (i.e no soujok, no marinated lamb). The drinks were excellent particularly the mint and lemon. I would recommend this for a quick bite or for lunch but not for dinner with plenty of very good dinner options in langkawi.

“Not cheap though....”
Reviewed 9 March 2014

Located at the Northern end of the Cenang strip of shops and restaurants, it's quite small and basic. My friend and I shared a mixed grill and lamb with rice. Portions not that big but the meat was well cooked - tender and succulent. A nice change from the usual Asian or Western food but not so cheap for locals.

“Delightful respite from heavy curries”
Reviewed 15 February 2014

After many days of curries and spicy Malaysian cuisine, we sought out Yasmin after seeing reviews. Located on the northern stretch of Cenang beach's main road, this Syrian-run place serves a delightful cold mezze platter and soft stewed lamb with cinnamon-spiced rice. We enjoyed it so much we returned for lunch -- on such hot days, it's a pleasure to eat fresh, cool tabulleh and fatoush (salad with pita chips flavored with real sumac) for a change. The brothers are warm and welcoming. A treat!

“Small, but excellent , clean Friendly Restaurant”
Reviewed 10 January 2014

Went with my wife and two kids looking for Syrian food as most restaurants there are Asian which we not familiar with, found this restaurant based on recommendations on TripAdvisor, the restaurant is small size , managed by two Syrian brothers, the place is very clean, friendly service, selection is not very wide but satisfy our needs, price was average and meal was big enough , they own a Shawerma stand nearby, but we did not try, I recommend this restaurant for people looking for excellent Syrian food,
