We got the Big Family Meal for $66 plus tax for a total of $71.94. This included 2 large humus, 2 large mutabbal, 2 large tabouleh, large basbai rice, garden salad, 4 pita packs, 2 large pickles, and the chicken. It was enough for 8 persons with some left overs. I thought it was OK, but not special.

The chicken is killer. I get roasted chickens from Pavilions (no waiting and convenient), Costco (cheap and HUGE), Whole Foods (no salt solution or hormones) and Zankou. Theirs is the best. I say that because the chicken falls off the bone, and is still tender. It has tons of flavor. The staff, however is rude. I can always count on... More

My family loves Zankou chicken! We always order the family dinner, which comes with a whole roast chicken, picked turnips, Mediterranean cabbage slaw with a vinaigrette, hummus, pita, and garlic sauce. They say it feeds 4 but usually for us it's 3 (dinner for two with one helping of leftovers). The chicken is so much better than other rotisserie chickens... More

Famous Zankou chicken. We got the chicken shawarmas and the beef (which are the original shawarma). Although Zankou roasted chicken is superb, the chicken shawarma was a tad bland. The beef was superb - yum!! Ture, the inside area leaves something to be desired in terms of ambience, we took ours home.

Zankou has a mix of middle eastern and greek food. the restaurants themselves are not fancy but the food is just nice and delicious. it is perfect for a quick bite, when you are looking for some middle eastern, turkish or greek food.

The chicken is delicious. So is the Lule Kebab. I get chicken for the family every other week. For takeout.

Admittedly, I don't favor mediterranean cuisine. Chicken was a medium-large portion, not that expensive, but horribly cooked. Flavorless.

For a quick dinner or dinner party, go to Zankou. We love their roasted chicken, it is moist and delicious. I don't like chicken skin, but theirs is incredible. Along with the chicken, they give you fresh pita bread, an incredible garlic sauce, and the best Hummus ever! Get the big container of Hummus, you will thank me! They also... More

I was so excited to see a Zakou near by when I moved to Pasadena. Always a good choice for great reasonable price. I get it to go.

I go here periodically though I have not in recent months. The last two times the food seemed stale. Another time I asked not to have hummus because I am allergic (seriously allergic). When I got home even though I did not have anything with hummus I tasted it on the food and my tongue started swelling. I like their... More
