Tasty chicken shawarma and hummus was great. It was a good place for takeout. The shawarma was a bit different from what I've grown accustomed to but it was nice.

We went there for the shawarma and were not disappointed. We have lived in the middle east and these shawarma brought back the memories and flavors of being there.

Shawarma king is a dive in every sense of the word, including the great food. Well known by Brookline locals, you cannot go wrong, everything is fresh and flavorful.

The restaurant was near to the Marriott hotel I was staying for couple of nights. They had an wide range of foods in cheaper price, also the food quality was amazing.

This is by far the best place for Arabic food, they have the usual shawerma and fast food options, but they also have daily dishes. Very clean and very yummy. If you love Arabic food, this is your place in Boston.

Everyone raves about (or hates) the chicken shawarma here, which is understandable. I actually find the chicken a little dry, but I'm no expert. The wraps are loaded with tahini, salad, pickles, and an intense garlic-cream, and the whole is a very good sandwich. But...More
