Read all the sites and tourist guides, but the chicken was even better than my wife and I expected. The garlic sauce wasn't too strong, the chicken was cooked perfectly to our liking and the restaurant was clean...a real plus for the wife!

I grew up eating this type of Arab chicken in Toronto. It is an Arab staple and it is delicious. Zankou does it perfectly. It is delicious and the sauce is 100% authentic, including the accompanying pickled items. If I am in LA, I am going here, as simple as that. Awesome, and very, very good value. 3 of us... More

Worth the 15 minute wait, the chicken tastes healthy and tasty! Make sure you keep an eye on the counter for your food though, because our buzzer never went off.

The food was great, but what stood out even more was the staff. Very friendly and willing to help me with my tray as I have a temporary disability.

This place qualifies as a hole-the-wall for sure. It's nestled in rundown strip mall in west Anaheim, surrounded by vacant stores and massage parlors. It is also maybe the best food bargain in Orange County. The prices are incredibly cheap. My wife always gets the chicken wrap (which is less than $5) and I get the lule wrap (ground meat... More

Lived in middle east for about 10 years and have eaten the same food after 20 years but reminds me of authentic arabic taste, must try

This restaurant is in little Arabia, Anaheim. While it doesn't score any points for atmosphere they have the best chicken shwarma in the area (they call theirs Tarna). Get some extra garlic sauce and yum!

I had the beef shawmera and the chicken tama (2 visits) and both were good. The tabouleh was good, but lots of large onion chunks which I didn't like (personal preference). The hummus was also good and the small was enough for a large family. Good place if you're in the mood for some Mediterranean food.

3 times here and have never had a bad experience, service or food! The shwarma and the plates are too tasty to put down! Tri tip is always tender and cooked perfectly. Tahini sauce is addicting and the hummus is just right. Even my wife chomped her shwarma pita down quickly. Cleanliness is great in the dining area. Didn't get... More
