This restaurant is in little Arabia, Anaheim. While it doesn't score any points for atmosphere they have the best chicken shwarma in the area (they call theirs Tarna). Get some extra garlic sauce and yum!

I had the beef shawmera and the chicken tama (2 visits) and both were good. The tabouleh was good, but lots of large onion chunks which I didn't like (personal preference). The hummus was also good and the small was enough for a large family. Good place if you're in the mood for some Mediterranean food.

3 times here and have never had a bad experience, service or food! The shwarma and the plates are too tasty to put down! Tri tip is always tender and cooked perfectly. Tahini sauce is addicting and the hummus is just right. Even my wife chomped her shwarma pita down quickly. Cleanliness is great in the dining area. Didn't get... More

First visit to this place and the shish kabob plate came with a long strand of hair. Disgusting!! The chicken kabob was all dark meat???!!! For 11.99, I would expect white meat for the chicken! Taste was sub-par and I wouldn't go back there again! The hair found in the food should deter you!

I only have 1 complaint! Why don't you open more locations in South Orange County!!!! We are real food fanatics to drive 40 miles to go eat but we love this place that much. I also want to say that Teresa, who always seems to be working every time we go, is totally awesome. We get the same thing every... More

I've been eating at Zankou for over 14 years now. I was introduced to Zankou by one of my classmates at PCC and started going to the one in Pasadena initially. After my husband and I moved to our first place together in Cerritos in 2007, the Anaheim location became our regular Zankou. The plaza itself is a little rundown,... More

Every time I'm down in Anaheim I make a point to stop and grab their Shawerma Chicken Plate. Every friend I've taken there is hooked. This place is really good. Excellent quick service style dining, order at counter and wait for the food to roll out. Two big thumbs up and a high five. Bam, get you some.

This is one of the original Zankou Chicken restaurants. When you order the chicken (I usually get the quarter white meat) ask for extra garlic sauce. It's so delicious. I ordered an extra 8oz container to take home, since I couldn't duplicate their recipe The chicken comes with hummus, pickles, pita bread and garlic sauce. You can also get a... More
