Best

My husband and I have been going to Sunnin on westwood blvd for a couple of years. We've tried other Lebanese restaurants in LA and this is by far our favorite one. Pros: Grea...

Worst

Used to go all the time and always had the same server... a very friendly chubby man. Pros: good quick food Cons: parking

Terrible service - mediocre food - avoid!!! 5/7/2011

This place was really awful....the staff was incredibly rude - they left me waiting for over 10 minutes before I was seated, and then proceeded to not bring my drink until I had asked at least 4 times. The food took over 45 minutes (and they were not terribly busy) and was not very good. EVERY other Mediterranean place in LA is better than this place- save your money and get some take out from Gaby's instead. more

very bad 9/16/2010

we went there for a dinner and ordered the spenich fatayer( pie) and it was clearly heated in the microwave and didn't taste good, then the beef and chicken shaworma were worse the bread was also and meet very dry and no taste....will not recommend to go there.... more

Best Lebanese Restaurant! 6/27/2010

My husband and I have been going to Sunnin on westwood blvd for a couple of years. We've tried other Lebanese restaurants in LA and this is by far our favorite one. Pros: Great food, large menu to choose from more

Best Middle-Eastern Food in the City! 2/12/2010

I have searched far and wide for a good middle-eastern restaurant in the city, then my friend introduced me to Sunnin. From that day forward, my life got a little bit better. The food is Amazing, the staff is friendly, and the prices are reasonable. The only con I ever had was how crowded the restaurant was - BUT since they just moved into their new beautiful space (across from the old place), their only con is now gone! My only suggestion is to try EVERYTHING! The chicken kabob is a must. Their lentil soup is exceptional. If you're going to get hummus, go for the hummus with ground beef! Spicy Kefta... And the best Baklava- hands down. Pros: The Family Owners (from Mama on down) - The Kebobs - Baklava Cons: That's there's only one in the city of Los Angeles more

Rich & Flavorful 2/10/2009

If you like to eat rich flavorful food, then you must try this place. If you like middle eastern food then I think you will be equally impressed at how good their food is. Everything i've had i've really enjoyed and at reasonable prices. There is no parking and a very small dining room. But then again, that's got nothing to do with the food. more

delicious!! 11/26/2008

i love it! the food is great no matter what you try. i go at least once a month. not too expensive and the owners are friendly. Pros: the food Cons: parking's kinda difficult but inot too bad more

Lebanese Food that tastes just like home!!! Authentic and Delicious! 8/7/2007

I have been coming to Sunnin for the last 6 years. I have tried every Lebanese restaurant in the city and this is the best one, hands down. It is home cooking at it's best. Pros: AUTHENTIC Lebanese food, quality food, generous portions, inexpensive Cons: Always full, a little cramped more

My mouth is watering just thinking about this place 7/6/2007

I've been going here for years and still love everything on the menu. It's a bit crowded and the parking is not easy, but it's worth it. It's family-run and definitely feels like your sitting in a family's/friend's kitchen. Everyone is super nice and once they know you and you know them, you can start ordering off the menu! I think the appetizers are the best and often just a few of those instead of an entree. I've brought some Lebanese friends there and they all think it's the best they've tasted outside of Lebanon. Pros: appetizers, friendly service Cons: parking more

Sunnin Lebanese *terrible service AND ripping off homeless people! 1/16/2007

Used to go all the time and always had the same server... a very friendly chubby man. Pros: good quick food Cons: parking more

Wonderful, affordable Lebanese fare. 11/28/2006

This westside hole-in-the-wall should not be missed. Everything at Sunnin is wonderful, and the owner will personally (if not immodestly) tell you so. You'll have UCLA students feasting to your left and a westside 40-something couple out before a movie to your right. If you're smart you'll order the fried cauliflower as an appetizer. What doesn't sound like much (reccommended by the owner) turns out to be a golden brown hot, freshly fried florets that you'll gobble up ferociously and that go divinely in their perfectly tangy dipping tahini sauce. Great entrees include falafel and mixed grill. Pros: Great food, great prices. Cons: Small, so not a lot of seating. more

very good middle eastern fare 11/11/2006

We noticed sunnin while eating at ambala dhaba next door, and after seeing how crowded it was, we vowed to try it. There is no ambiance here, just a fluorescent-lit white room packed with people chowing down on their tasty lebanese food. I wouldn't call the food transcendental, but it is better than most middle eastern places in west LA. The hummus, with a little pool of olive oil and spices on top, was excellent. My wife's falafel and my shawarma plate were very tasty and fresh. The staff were extremely busy, and had a kind of gruff exterior, but were friendly when we talked with them a bit... overall, a really nice experience for very little money. Pros: great food, fast, bustling Cons: no ambiance at all more

Modest and Good, But Short of Stellar. 9/23/2006

After reading the profile, I rather expected to food to take me on a magic carpet ride of deliciousness. And while it was good, it didn't qualify as amazing. Seasoned and flavorful without being overly greasy, I've had comparable schwerma and hummus from plenty of Middle Eastern restaurants across LA and the valley. The place gains praise then from the fact that it doesn't look or act like it's anything too special, so the decent food becomes an unexpected surprise. The location is very small and easily crowded with fluorescent lights and the kind aged dingy-ness that no amount of bleach will really wash away. The locals return faithfully because of Sunnins smaller charmsa menu with quadruple the variety of a Zankous dishes (numbered to avoid pronunciation faux pas) and a lone waitress who will berate the cook for forgetting your tea in several languages. Pros: Cheap, Quick, Decent food Cons: Little seating, Current reviews would set expectation too high more

best hole in the wall place 8/21/2006

great food, great service. Our favorite place in LA, we go as often as we can. Great value for money. Go with lots of people so you can order family style as many dishes as possible. Only con is that the place is too small and they don't deliver. Pros: value, service, food Cons: too small, difficult to park more

The family cooks, serves and entertains! 7/12/2006

Always a pleasure to eat here - and not often enough now I have moved to Hollywood! Pros: Food and staff Cons: sometimes a wait and they close orders at 9 sharp! more

AMAZING food and very nice people. 3/1/2006

It's a tiny place and it's a hole in the wall. There is always room to sit but it's a very small place which makes it kinda nice. Prices are low, I mean $5-7 and you have a really nice meal. The quality of the meat and vegetables is amazing. The smells and aromas are really great. Park under ross for free, you won't get towed, trust me cause I've been doing it for years. PROS: Great food, great staff, cheap CONS: Small, sometimes stuffy more

a little saucy 1/21/2006

first of all the sandwiches are a little saucy. the shawarma especially has way too much sauce on it. so much sauce it ruins the sandwich. apparently they don't like it when you ask for little on the sauce either because everytime i do, its still too saucy. the menu has a review that recomends the pastry appetizers. the only 2 i liked were SANBOUSEK, and SFIHA, which weren't anything special like the review wanted me to believe. The other 2 weren't very good. i also tried the Labneh because of said review and it was basically sour cream with the texture of yougurt. not sure what you are suppose to do with it? however i do like the beef kabob there, the only thing i've tried that i recommend. i find it hard to believe its the best Lebanese food in La, and if so than that's quite sad. more

It is good but not great 9/5/2005

for the area where Sunnin is located , I would say it is a nice small lebanese cafe. the whole family works together and bring a great tasty food. I would think though myself being a lebanese and tried many lebanese good their food taste is not as great as other places in glendale. more

You can't get tired of eating at Sunnin! 5/5/2005

I ate at Sunnin everyday for a week and didn't get tired of it. Sunnin has a large menu with plentyof variety. The best hummis I ever taster. Good-sized portions and good value. The owners have a good vibe and provide a family style atmosphere. The crowd in the evening is usually young students from UCLA and professionals in their 20s-30s. Small space, but I have seen smaller. To go orders are good too. What I love most is that I can eat a big meal at Sunnin and not feel sleepy afterwards. I recommend the chicken kabob dinner with salad, garlic and add on the hummis! Pros: Good Value, Fresh Food more

Magically delicious! 3/11/2005

Best Lebanese restaurant in LA! Great food in a Middle-Eastern lunchbar atmosphere. You must try the hummus and tabouleh! One of my favorite restaurants in LA -- and it's cheap! Pros: cheap, authentic, healthy more

The best Lebanese food! 3/3/2005

This is one of my favorite restaurants in LA. Their food is delicious and every person that I bring here loves it too. My favorites are the chicken shawerma (yum!), chicken kabob sandwich, and the hummus and other appetizers. Their food is authentic and high quality. The people there are very friendly. It's low on decor, but it's one of those tiny places with great homemade type food. LOVE IT. PROS: CONS: a tiny bit pricey when you add up the appetizers and entrees. more
