For the second week in a row no pita chips. Now you got to check the box and pay extra .95 and we checked it 3 times/paid extra. When I called and asked how to eat all my delicious hummus/food without pita bread for the...second week in a row and they didn't seem to care much. In the end they offered to refund me 3x.95=2.85 from a 60 order for my inconvenience. It's like ordering a sub and not getting the bun. And then to find out that they don't care makes me re-evaluate my frequent visits.More

We were passing through (from Chicago and Dallas) and just googled something different for a place to meet up. Shawarma King came up. We loved it! Food was delightful. Service was family style. (very friendly). We sat inside (but could have eaten outside) and there...was a stream of people doing take out. You could tell it was a popular place -there were 10 take out orders ready to go. We highly recommend this delightful restaurant - to try and experience if you've never had Mediterranean food! And if you do - you'll love this place. Good hommous!More

We love the buffet at Shwarma King on Westnedge. The food is always hot and fresh. They have the best lentil so we have had. You won't be disappointed.

food was cold, delivery came at the wrong time. There was no way to reheat the food or maintain temperature because chafing essentials were not included. The shishtawooks came in used cardboard boxes and the lentil soup came in used citric acid plastic jugs. Hands...down...The WORST catering experience EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Makes me now wonder what schwarma king does with their food behind the sceneMore

Our favorite restaurant in Kalamazoo though it feels more like going to a dear friends house for dinner. The owner and staff are absolutely wonderful. The food is incomparable. I always have King Tea which is sooo delicious and my favorite is Shish Tawook. They...have the very best hummus, falafels and absolutely everything they serve is the best you will have ever had!More

Ordered take out at 3:30 pm on a Tuesday. 2 chicken shawarma lunch specials, one with salad & rice, one with salad & soup. And 2 orders of veggie samosas for a total of around $23.50 before tip. Pro: quick service, decent size portions, good...garlic sauce. Con: samosas were stone cold in the middle but what we could eat tasted good, dressing on salad was like water & oil with no flavor, chicken shawarma & rice was just ok but I wouldn't recommend it, lentil soup was very salty & heavy, no silverware but we got napkins! No I would not eat here again.More

Looking for something different, this place is worth the visit. Full of local patrons, the food was tasty and plentyful. Service was professional and courteous. When in the area, give it a try.

We ordered two sandwiches - one chicken kabab and one chicken shawarma. They were delicious and filling and cost under $10 total for the two.

I’m baffled by the good reviews. We had salads and shawarma take out which were poor excuses for authentic ethnic food. The portion sizes were generous but the ingredients used were not tasty.

Had a lunch meeting with a business colleague here recently and it was very nice. The food was very good and the service was too. A very homey feel to the place.

As far as I know, the Drake location does not have a buffet. The one at the corner of Westnedge/White does though, lunch and dinner buffet both. It's a bit pricey, but still good food.
