Best shawarma west of Paris.

Chicken shawarma is best I have had west of Paris France. Unfortunate he is not busier, ingredients would be better. Go with chicken with all sauce. Salads are also good including bubba. it's take-out for sure. Been coming back since he opened.

I decided to finally go to this place and see what it was after driving past it so many times and not really knowing what type of restarant it was. The place itself is very dinjy definitely needs renovations and not a place to eat in at, only take out and sit while you wait...BUT the chicken shawarma that I... More

This small restaurant is not well known. The spices are always amazing and everything is always fresh. The owner does most of the cooking and he is a very nice man always willing to change or add anything you want. The hummus and relishes are a great addition the salads are amazing. The value is always there. I introduced this... More

A year ago I went here with a Turkish friend, who dislikes eating out, for the first time. We stopped because we were both hungry and had another hour before getting home. What a gem of a place. As others have said, it is tiny ( 2 tables), and absolutely dumpy looking. The shawarma was fabulous, and even my friend... More

My family has fallen in love with the delicious food and the kind service at Shawarma King! Soud is always friendly and helpful - he even let us sample the tabbouleh salad before we bought it (and we keep buying it)! The hummus is delicious, the chicken shawarma wraps are flavourful and such good value. We've eaten Lebanese all over... More

I had the chicken shawerma plate. It tasted very bad and left a foul taste in my mouth for hours. The salad that came with it had two pieces of hair in it which was gross. To top it off, I did not even dare to taste that soup that came with the meal because the smell made me want... More

The whole point of a lebanese restaurant is to show hospitality and the great customer service of people from the Mediterranean area. I went there today for the first time after I saw all these reviews and was shocked to see the opposite. Let me start by saying that I am lebanese myself and have been to places where food... More

Went here the other week again to get the lunch special chicken shawarma & again totally satisfied! The portion is huge & for $7.77 you can't go wrong! Great place just around the corner.

Maybe this is an acquired taste. Just not my cup of tea and I couldn't eat it. Nothing wrong with the food I'm sure, its just not good compared to food I'm used to eating I guess?

It's not a place to sit and eat...great for take out! We have eaten from here numerous times and NEVER disappointed! We always get the chicken shwarma pita and a side of rice...it's excellent! We always ask for extra garlic sauce, it's great pouring it over the rice! Mmmm. Also have had the falafel pita...I order when I don't feel... More
