Falafel is King when you eat at Pita Kitchen

This is an institution on Van Nuys Blvd near Ventura in Sherman Oaks. Great menu and perfect falafel.

The falafel, beef and chicken kebabs and chicken schwarma are all great. Lamb/beef schwarma (aka gyro) is the weak link. All served choice of pita sand, wrap or plate. Hummus and salads are all solid. Portions are massive; plates (especially when ordered to go) are often enough for two.

Really, really great falafel, fresh pita! Very authentic, close to the best! Make sure you ask for the pickles and pickled peppers and vegetable to go with it. Really good fries too! Soooo going back again and again!

No, there are some quite special items about the menu of this joint other than, perhaps, the meat which was quite hard, chewy and lumpy. We ordered the hummus, lamb kebob and baklava. The atmosphere was pretty good as we dined outdoors, perhaps too close to the road. The staff was very helpful and friendly, the prices were excellent for... More
