Editorial review from Citysearch 6/6/2013

Legend has it that eating Tarna Chicken once a week makes you more attractive. more

chicken chicken 7/9/2010

This is a different type of fast food. Their tarna chicken plate is great. plenty of marinated chicken, garlic sauce, salad, tahini, hommus, salad. All for $9.99. Easy parking with free valet. Quick service. Pros: free valet parking more

AWESOME! 5/29/2008

Best food ever. more

They're Born To Roast Chickens 11/9/2007

If you're in the mood for seriously cheap eats that include some of the best rotisserie chicken and hummus in LA then head over to Zankou. I have no idea what they do to their chickens but they're always tender, juicy and wonderful. Let's not get into my feelings about the garlic sauce that they serve on the side (always ask for more) - because it borders on true love. The only thing that's lacking IMO is a better selection of sides; but it doesn't stop us from eating here a few times a month, even my super picky 8 year old loves the place (and the garlic sauce). I think the urge to lick your fingers while eating this stuff is almost overwhelming. Pros: Fast Service, Awesome Food, Parking, Garlic Sauce to Die For Cons: Cash only more

Great garlic chicken and shawerma 1/15/2007

My first trip to Zankou wasn't a success -- the hummus tasted like mashed potatoes and the chicken was a bit dry. But the second time I went, the food was excellent. Juicy chicken that drips off the bone, beef shawerma that is lean and incredibly tasty, wonderful garlic sauce and even the hummus was good. This has definitely made the top of my lists for fast, cheap, good food. Pros: Garlic sauce, great shawerma Cons: Hummus could be better more

mmm garlic 11/3/2006

The garlic sauce is addicting. The chicken can more

Slightly dissappointed 10/27/2006

The garlic sauce was more bitter than I remember 10 years ago, but it was very good with the delicious Armenian bread (pita). The chicken that I got was not juicy. The chicken I buy from Cosco is bigger, juicier, and cheaper. The falafel plate was like $8, a little more than I was expecting but it was pretty good. Service was pretty fast. Pros: pita, garlic sauce, fast service Cons: ambience, dry chicken, not as cheap as expected more

Surprisingly GREAT food!!! 11/3/2005

I had my reservations about this restaurant because of where it was located, but once inside it was nice, clean place with a friendly staff. The food was amazing! The roasted chicken is so juicy and the Tri-Tip Shawerma was sooo tasty. It is a lot of food, you could even share a plate with a friend. The pita bread they serve with the hummus is soft and warm. I really love this place, so don't let the exterior scare you off. Pros: Chicken, Tri-Tip Shawerma, Hummus, Garlic Sauce Cons: parking, cash only more

So good 3/9/2005

Had lunch here today and it was great. I was disappointed by the bad service...I ordered a small pepsi and got a medium diet, and the cashier wasn't friendly at all. Food on the other hand was quite good. I'd go back just for that. The dishes are rich, so a little goes a long way. Pros: Chicken, Wraps, Quick service Cons: attitude, parking more

Great Food 12/29/2003

This is not the type of place that you go to for the ambiance but the food is EXCELLENT!!! It is usually busy but the service is quick. I definitely reccommend Zankou. more

Delicious! 8/19/2003

The chicken pita sandwich is one of the best -- the garlic sauce is to die for! Zankou also has some of the best hummus around, and it's all very cheap! Pros: inexpensive, good food Cons: not much parking more

Very tasty!!! 6/17/2002

The chicken is wonderful and I love the garlic sauce. For a fast food restaurants this one is right up there. Their service at least on this location has always been fast. Cons: cash only more

Mmmmm... Yum, Yum 5/20/2002

The chicken at Zankou chicken is absolutely delicious. Very moist and tender. It is served with a side of hummous, and a tomatoe/radish dish or salad. The wraps are good here as well. The food is inexpensive. I don't even like garlic, but I'll eat the mild garlic side in a minute. more

  • The Scene
    Zankou Chicken isn't much to look at: a narrow slice in an unremarkable strip mall. But the glowing critical accolades Zankou has garnered--blown up, framed and proudly...
