Shawarma King first opened in 1989 on Huntington Avenue. My father and my uncle, the Kassab Brothers, came from Lebanon with a dream of sharing Lebanese cuisine. Back then, we were the first people to introduce Shawarma to the people of Boston. 2 years after opening, Shawarma King moved from Huntington Avenue to Beacon Street in Brookline. Now, Over 30 years later, we're still proudly serving our authentic Shawarma, juicy kabobs, and the best Hummus in ALL of New England. Come and try us if you don't believe it!
"After passing this place by for years, I finally stopped by. On opening the door, the fragrance of roasting meat, a melange of spices, and bright herbs immediately told me that it had been a mistake to wait this long to try this place. The owner greeted me right away, offering up the latest lunch specials and walking me through each one. I opted for the shawarma combo plate, which comes with both chicken and beef/lamb shawarma, rice, pita, salad, tahini, and pickles
In short, it was amazing. Though I have a large appetite, this plate could have easily fed me for two meals, but I ate it in one. For dessert, a piece of baklava drizzled with rose water syrup that was every bit as delicate, bright, clear, and floral as one could ever want."
