This is a friendly place with large dinner platters of middle eastern food for a fair price. Not the best food but pretty good

I worked at UCLA and after having my first falafel, I was hooked. Over the years I moved around in So. Cal. and always made sure to stop when I was in the area. Now, in No. Ca. its not so easy, but after almost 40 years, I still crave their food. Highly recommend you give them a try, and... More

When I worked in Westwood, I went there ALL the time! Their shawarma is excellent and felafel is right up there, too; and they let you put on whatever add-ons you want. Reasonably priced, it's a must eat at in Westwood.

Absolute perfection. Falafel as fast food. Get the falafel and dip them in hummus. Nothing better! Except, perhaps, one of the combo plates with falafel, hummus, tsatsiki sauce, and chicken shwarima!

I've been going to the Westwood Falafel King for years. My favorite is the Chicken Shwarma Sandwich served on pita bread, and they add those delicious crunchy chips as part of the meal. The Chicken Shwarma plate is just o.k. only because I don't really like the sides that they offer. Great place to eat if you don't want fast... More

I really like the food here and eat here often when working at UCLA. There's a fair selection of food here, at a good price and they also have outdoor seating which is a bonus in Westwood.

Very disappointed with this old time place. The blackboard menu, defines the expectation that a poorly handwritten menu, which looks like it was written by a 5 th grader is nothing special. To take a hot falafel and place it in a pita and not even taste warm, condiments that are mostly salsas add nothing. Any one who has eaten... More
