Restaurant details
Reviewed September 10, 2012

Had high expectations from the comments on Yelp but this was just average middle eastern chicken. The chicken kabob was unevenly cooked (perhaps because the pieces were not uniformly sized), was a strange mixture of white and dark meat (I don't like dark meat so this may only have been a negative for me) and the accompaniments were just ok. Served with pickled turnip, onion salad and a roasted tomato (mine was not roasted enough), hummus (very good) and tabouli (bad mix with not enough bulgar wheat to balance the parsley), I found the meal to be a little expensive for the quality. It is cooked to order but still appeared slapped together in a to-go plastic container (fine if you are taking out but not for inside the restaurant). I will bet there is better Armenian food to be had in this neighborhood.

This was my first time at Zankou and I do plan to return. The chicken was delicious and so was the hummus and salad. The atmosphere is clean and they try to offer a little ambiance, It's nice for a casual dining location.

Love the chicken tarna, the hummus, and the tahini sauce. Plus, it's cheap and fast.
