The chicken is cheap and delicious. The wraps are good too.
Quality suffering – I used to love eating here, but in the last couple of years, the quality has really gone down. The food is either too greasy (literally dripping out the bottom) or super dry on the tarna sandwiches. Don't even get me started on falafels (also very dry). Considering there are so many other locations now (particularly the West LA one and the Burbank one), I just don't bother anymore. Plus, the parking lot is small and frustrating. You could do worse, but you could also do a lot better.
chicken tarna sandwich!! – the taste here is special. Crazy place, almost serve yourself. But it is good food here!
food poisoning – Violent puking all night. Thanks Zankou.
Get The Garlic Sauce – I love this place. I'm only giving it 4 stars because the servers are miserable a lot of the time. Maybe they feel they don't have to be nice because they have the best Middle-Eastern food in town. Nobody smiles.
But the food is brilliant. Do what I do-- get a falafel or shawarma sandwich to go and keep your mouth shut. But whatever you order- ask for extra garlic sauce and put it on everything you eat for a week.
soooooooooo good! – i'm not into middle eastern food, but i always get 3 of their beef schwarma sandwiches at a time from here and pay extra for their large garlic paste! the pickled peppers and beets really add to the flavor of the hummus spread inside the sandwich. i've had the chicken too but don't care for it.
Garlic sauce, garlic sauce, garlic sauce, garlic sauce, garlic sauce! – The chicken is good, the food is cheap, but it's really all about the GARLIC SAUCE!!! Make sure not to go here before you go out for the evening or you will reek! It so good you want to keep eating it, and you do. And then your tongue hurts later. But it's worth it!
Far below Average, very disappointing – I lived in Saudi Arabia and thought this would give a reasonable Flafil and Shawarma. They both sucked. The Flafil was yellow from the inside (not rich) and the Shawarma was dry and not juciy and served with only tomatoes: No I don't recall ever putting tomatoes with Shawarmas. Shawarma should contain: pickeled cucmber, garlic paste, French fries and sometimes addition if greet salad or hot sauce. This is not the case here. I don't recommend it.
Tasty Take Out – Armenian Fast food and its good stuff. The pita roll sandwiches are the geat with the chicken tarna (chx shwarma) is terrific, the garlic spread makes it so uniquely yummy. Good food and good value. Try not to take the seemingly unpleasant nature of the cashiers personnaly, they are really not so bad just overworked. Note that there are others Zankou's around, the new one on Splvd. and Olympic was perfect if a little more expensive than I remember the menu being.
Quality food at a reasonable price – I enjoyed the food at this establishment very much. It is a very realxing environment. I also liked the variety of the menu and the different options i had. I liked the quality of the food very much and the price is also very reasonable for the amount of food that you are receiving. The one thing that i liked the most is their garlic sauce that they have. It is a very unique flavor and very tasty.
Eh... It's chicken – Just OK. Rather small menu and food was average. If you want good mediterranean, get Gyros and grape leaves from El Greco Cafe.
good chicken. good wraps – i've been eating zankou since i was younger. the food's good here and it's cheap. i like the wraps and the chicken meals. they're famous for ther yummy garlic sauce. i highly recommend this place :)
