|★★★★★ Excellent ! Definitely a must try if you are in Boston and craving shwarma; the staff is very nice and allow you to sample their specials, all of which were delicious including lemon chicken; i also had their jallab which was a nice rose water, date and raisin drink; one of the better shwarma places i have been to in the Northeast|
|★★★★★ We've visited this place many times. Love the chicken Shawarma! so yummy and so filling. Usually we ask them to make it a little spicey w/ a kick vs the original flavor. Definitely get their special 'date drink'! Thats the burgandy color drink that comes with cut almonds. So super yummy. |
Owners are muslims, the place is close to student housing and is super busy all the time, visited by muslims and non muslims alike. We prefer dining in and eating the freshly made shawarma when it is still warm & toasty.
|★★★★ good place taste too many mulsims eating there, owned by Lebanese guys,|
|★★★ If you want to eat Mediterranean food this is a nice place. There shawfarm a is good|
|★★ Positive: The Shawarma is very well wrapped with the pita toasted to perfection. Great reviews on Zabihah.com as well.|
Negative: Meat quality is sub par and food taste cannot compare with places in New Jersey, New York, or Virginia.
Overall: If you are really craving meat and/or shawarma then give it a go. Otherwise I’d look somewhere else.
|★★★★★ Came here with a friend I ordered chicken, he ordered lamb. They were both about the same price, $14 I think..|
I really liked it, it tasted good and the price was understandable for the quality. I would recommend this place, service was good as well. Our order took about 10 minutes. However the deserts didn't look too great but I didn't actually taste any. Soo yeah check it out
|★ Plastic found in a shawerma wrap.|
I was going there for two years now. The food is average, but I was thinking this is the best available Halal restaurant in Boston. Today, I went there with my pregnant wife. We found a plastic in her shawerma wrap. We don't know if we had eaten some. I talked to the manager and he replied that he's "sorry, it might came from the bread's bag," I was shocked, Is that all?. I paid the full bill before I tell him. He took the money and we didn't eat even half of our wraps till we found the plastic. Now, I need to find another alternative.
Before this incident, I would give them three stars because of the average food and the place's hardly noticeable smell. The normal staff are very nice and helpful.
|★★ The food is okay.. Bland shawarma , dinner plate is way expensive , few rows of seats .|
|★★★ They said everything is halal. |
I'm sure that they're doing something right and that's why they've been in business for 20 years.
But they did not impress me at all.
The food was average, too tart (lemony), portions very small, but edible.
It was obvious that they were *trying* to be nice.
I may go back just to support a Muslim business, but the food & service aren't that great.
|★★★★ Food here is worth the trip. I know some brs. travel to NYC just for the sandwiches. |
They did this really unique toasting thing that i just cant say no to.
|★★★★★ Owner was nice to customers. I ordered Shwarma that cost $7 each tasty.|
|★★★★★ Food was very fresh and had a lot of flavor. One of my favorite middle eastern restaurant in the US|
|★ My family has been going here for years and today was my last time. The owner was very rude when I was ordering and showed no respect to me whatsoever as a woman. I brought my entire family including my husband, kids and husbands parents and my Father in Law who heard him being rude to me refused to even eat the food. It's too bad cause we did like the food but definitely not the service.|
|★★★★ Always great food. My favorite has to be Kafta kabob, and Garlic Chicken sandwich. I also like their daily special meals though not the salad -- I'm not a salad guy. Highly recommend.|
|★★★★ We are a couple that usually shares a combo plate and one of their drinks. Both the lemonade with rose water and other red drink with almond slivers are delicious. We have never tried the desserts there... we're always stuffed after the combo plate. |
I would warn against the lentil soup though. We tried it once; it tasted really bland and was too thick.
|★★★★ Food tasted good specially Humus and Falafel. Serving size above average. Service very fast. Staff to the point and firm. Prices are high.|
|★★★★★ very nice food, the owner is a very nice man,they usually explain to you every thing about what is special for today, the best ever rest. in all boston,easy to reach by all the mean of transportation,the shawerma is nice but not excellant,but the daily dishes are perfect ,fresh,and home made taste|
|★★★ I was here a week ago, the owner was actually really nice, explained to me the daily specials and said to take my time for the order.|
Unfortunately, the food wasnt as great as I had hoped, the chicken for the shawarma was quite dry. Lets just say I have had better shawarma elsewhere.
|★★ 1. Owner wasn't friendly at all - he was very serious and did not make us feel welcome at all by rushing our order and doing little to explain to us anything.|
2. My beef shawarma was cooked well, but it was overly loaded with spices - as if they poured a box all over it, making the end result overwhelming.
|★★★★★ I love the food here. My wife and I usually share a combo meal and there is enough food in one plate for both of us. I especially like the plate which has a good selection of all kebabs (chicken, kofta, lamb shawarma) in one plate. I recommend this place to everyone. However, the place could be bigger as the seating is not enough.|
|★★★★ Muslim owners...very nice/friendly people. Not the cheapest food. Sandwiches are much better than the combos. The shawarma are thick slices instead of thin.|
|★★★★★ it's great|
|★★★★★ Excellent food, great prices, convenient location, always very busy (can be hard to find a table), very casual dining (plastic chairs). I highly recommend the combo kabob plate. I am not as impressed with their shawarma sandwiches though. They usually have very friendly staff.|
|NR Beef lamb shawarma is outstanding at Shawarma King, and the other items that I have tried have been consistentlt excellent. They raised the price of the shawarma wrap to 5 dollars last year but still very reasonable. The owner also verbally verified that the meat was zabiha, and I have no reason to question it. Consistently high quality food makes Shawarma King a popular favorite restaurant in Boston.|
|★★★★★ This place is great. I am 100% areed with all positive points of previous reviews. If you ever go to Boston, Do Not Miss This Place.|
|★★★★★ This place is great. The food is fast, and the service is very friendly. I also wish they had one in my town. I plan on going there every day on the rest of my trip to Boston. I Wish I had tried it sooner!|
|★★★★★ Kudos guys!!! Delicious, mouthwatering Shawarma!! I went there three times in 3 days while on a recent bus. trip to Boston....:)|
|★★★★★ I can't add more than what the other said. VERY GOOD FOOD. Clean, resonable price, big servings, tasty, wish they had one in our town!|
|★★★★★ Delicious food, great service by friendly guys. I really wish there was more seating (my usual complaint). But that just means I want to spend more time there.|
|★★★★★ Very good stuff.... Perfect! Try Beef Shawarma :)|
|★★★★★ Great food, and the guys that work there are really nice.|
|★★★★ Another one of long-time favorites. Friendly service (I was remembered even after nearly a 10 year absence), great food, good prices.|
|★★★★★ This place serves the tastiest shwarma in the Boston area! I have taken (out of towner) friends there for meals, and complain about their local shwarma now! Great food, friendly service, two thumbs up!|
|★★★★ Clean, tasty, moderately priced. A good alternative to Boston Shawarma. A popular place for halal-conscious Boston Muslims, as well as Brookline-area college students.|
|★★★★ Great food! Especially the Kafta Arayees and the cocktail Juice. Give it a try and you will become a regular.|
|★★★★ Really great food, especially the Chicken Shawarma sandwich and the Chicken Kabob.|
|★★★★ A great place to pick up Middle Eastern sandwiches (hummus, baba ghannoush, shawarma) or to sit and enjoy a more substantial plate with shawarma or kebab and Middle Eastern salad and other side dishes. Good value for your money; but, minimalist cafe style seating area.|
