I'm amazed at the quality of reviews for this restaurant. Their chicken schwarma is also dry with a lot of really hard pieces that chewed like cartilage. They use too much tahini in their hummus. Nothing tasted fresh. The baba was pretty decent, but not helpful when the pita is dry as dust. Their rice was okay. There are so... More

This is the place I often crave for when I visit L.A. as former Hollywood residence, this is a must-visit when I'm in town. Totally love their chicken Shawerma plate and I always ask for extra garlic sauce. Great flavor in this plate and everytime I go to dine there, always order this dish and sometime falafel which is really... More

Mediterranean at it's best! The usual suspects, schwarma, baba, tabouli and hummus. Healthy and delicious...and at a very reasonable price too!

A friend told me about this place and I decided to try it while I waited for my car to get serviced at the Toyota dealership across the street and holy cow, is Al Wazir good. The chicken, garlic sauce, dolmas - everything is just amazing. This place blows all of the chain chicken shwarma places out of the water.... More

This little restaurant has some of the best grilled meats I have ever had in L.A. It beats Zankou Chicken (which is good!) by a long shot. This is the perfect place for a quick meal in Hollywood.

If you are visiting Pantages theatre and would like a quick meal before the event, try Al Wazir. The restaurant is small, but the food is delicious and the portions large. They provide a variety of mid-eastern dishes, including char-broiled items, humus, baklava, etc. It is only a couple of blocks from the theatre.

Came to LA for two weeks with a friend. First time in the USA and we ate in this place more times than we care to remember. The portions are generous, the prices are very reasonable and the food is cooked excellently and seasoned well. Garlic sauce is to die for. The bread stuffed with ground meat was gorgeous. Oh,...

I used to come here when I lived in Hollywood but I moved away 10 years ago. I was driving by last week and thought, why not? I was not disappointed. There's lots of spots that have sprung up trying this kind of menu but there's only one Al Wazir. Tried several items but chicken souvlaki is my favorite. They... More

Al Wazir is my go to for a take out meal on the run. They are always fast whether you call ahead or order in person. The chicken shwarma plate is my favorite and I always get two meals out of it!

Staying in Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
Hollywood
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
