Taboule and Mutabal are delicious. Beef Shawarma and Chicken Kebab are good. Garlic Sauce is fabulous. If rotisserie chicken is fresh its very good

I had not been to one of the Zankou restaurants for over 5 years because the closest one is still too far from where I live. However, I was in the Hollywood area today and spotted Zankou. I immediately decided to get some take-out, fondly remembering the delicious, melt in your mouth chicken from years past. And I have always... More

The tri tip shawarma and the shish kebob plates are delicious! It took about 10 minutes to get the food, but they asked me if that was ok before they cooked my order. Make sure you get the garlic spread. And remember each plate comes with something different. The tri tip plate came with a salad but the kebob plate... More

This is a good place for Shawarma wrap and falafel, I had to wait for long line they were busy and the tables were dirty and parking it's a problem here in Hollywood it's very hard to find if you lucky may be you can on the streets but you have pay for meter.

Sketchy place. Tried kebabs and shawarma - everything was overcooked, dry and cold. The only thing they couldn't spoil was hummus.

I grew up getting chicken from here at least once a week. It is one of my first stops in LA. It's hard to get great rotisserie chicken but this is the place. It may not be quite as awesome as I remember but the garlic paste is still amazing. You just may want to avoid people afterward.

The place may not look flashy (outside or inside, really). You order at the counter. Get a number and pick your food up. Choose a table. Dig in. That's it, but the food is great, inexpensive. Believe me, you can't go wrong here. A chicken lover's dream. I like their hummus. You'll find people from all walks of life here.... More

Loved the chicken and beef shawarma, it was one of the best I'd had in the united states. The place is set up like a fast food restaurant but had high quality food and was very clean. The portions are huge so you can easily share.

Their chicken is savory and they have unusual types of side dishes. This is healthy, fresh food at a reasonable price and I have eaten here several times for lunch.

We always order the complete chicken meal. Chicken very tasty. The garlic spread is delicious. Love the sides of falafel, red turnips and always fresh pita bread.

Staying in Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
