Good place to grab a quick bite. The place is just a kitchen and the ordering counter, no seating, so take out only. I generally go for the chicken shawarma wrap with garlic spread, which has a good kick. The falafel wraps are good too (so my wife tells me).

Delicious and fresh. The chicken has a great flavor.

I was really sick this week and my husband went to go get Lentil soup for me, which is my favorite. When he walked into this establishment, the person at the counter said, “you know we are closing soon, right?” My husband said no, he didn’t know the hours. When do you close? “In 35 minutes.” Really? Also they didn’t have any soup. This is the second time we have been in this place and both times the staff was rude. Go to Mr Kebab in Berkley instead. The food is better and the portions are bigger and they always have lentil soup.

Good food, though ordering anything special definitely seems to be overwhelming to the crew. Taking a moment is also clearly off-putting. True, everyone has a bad day, but three for three signals a rudeness that's usual for business. I wouldn't recommend call ahead either, as you are told you can't add or subtract anything from your item. All and all, an attitude adjustment and appreciation of customers would make this place a shining star. Until then, I'll be driving past it to the next Mediterranean place.

My favorite Mediterranean place of all time! The flavors are incredible. Chicken shawarma bowl and wrap are my favorite. The place is always clean and quick service. Very friendly staff and owner.

Guy was easy going but a little too curt. No seating. Food is a little expensive for the quality and amount you're actually getting. But definitely edible if you're in a hurry.

Quick food and friendly service. Great Mediterranean food when you don’t feel like cooking dinner for the night.

We wanted to pass by for a quick bite on the road. We don't eat fast food, Wow popped up on my yelp, & I'm so glad we tried it.. the chicken shawarma was so good! The place is more like a stand, no seats. The people working there are very nice, and the service was fast. We'll defiantly try more =)

I just had a horrible conversation with the owner Ken! I had to give a 1 star review to post my experience. Otherwise it would be (0 ZERO). Me and my co workers order food on a regular basis. My co-worker called a order in for a couple of different meals. I ordered a Chicken Shawarma Bowl, I specified NO tomatoes. I heard my co-worker call the order in, she said please make sure you don't add tomatoes. Well! I got the bowl and wouldn't you know it!!!! there were a ton of tomatoes!!!!! I immediately called spoke to Ken (JERK) the owner of the establishment. I explained the bowl has tomatoes, Ken said yes I know "I did add tomatoes" No I'm sorry, I apologize for the mix up. Instead he suggested that I bring the bowl back, and he'd remake it! Well I explained to Ken, I am at work and do not have the please of taking as many lunch breaks as I would like, therefore I am unable to come back today. Ken had the Freaking NERVE to say "ok then bring it back on Monday which is 3 days from now, and he'd replace it. My reaction was WOW really what a JERK!!!! this is how you treat a customer. Most business owners with Class, Integrity and good business SENSE! would have 1st Apologized, 2nd Ask if I wanted a refund, 3rd Replace it without me having to hold on to the meal for 3 whole days. I will not be giving anymore of my $$$$$ to this Jerk.... His demanor was not friendly or courteous at ALL. Ken the owner is a JERK!!!

Some of the best Mediterranean fast food you can get in the area. A great option if your looking for something fast, healthier & fresher. Service is great, too.

Gino Soave

Great food and service, fair prices. Fresh baklava. Never had a problem with our orders and have been going for quite a while.

Amanda Sigman

I always pass this place, but never stop. I finally did today and I’m glad I did. Food was really good and fresh and the baklava was the best! I’d come back just for that!

I rarely leave reviews for places, but I absolutely had to after my experience at Wow. The food is fine - middle of the road fast food Mediterranean cuisine. However, it was hard to believe how rude the employees were. It was almost funny how rude they were - it was like I was bothering them with my order. I won't bother them again!

I absolutely love their salads BUT the customer service that comes with it is not worth my money. I've been coming for a year now at least 1 time a week and am always thinking they just had bad days. I had to wait 20 minutes for a call in order after the initial time they told me to wait for pick up, rang up my salads as the wrong size and then made me pay the $4.24 difference with no apology. I will find somewhere else moving forward.

The food is good, albeit a little pricey. They charge extra for feta cheese and tabbouleh on everything. Some salads even charge extra for turnips and cabbage. The main woman who works there has an attitude problem - she should just try smiling or saying "you're welcome" once in a while. But, 3 stars cause the food is good.

Ordered food for my wife and youngest Son. They like this style of food. Portions are a good size, and price is pretty good.

Felicia Adamczyk

Love the food here and the staff is super friendly. Can't go wrong with one of the family platters, easily enough food for days and such a great deal. Love their hummus and their lentil soup. Looking forward to eating here many more times!!

Donna B.

Service was so bad 2 young girls behind counter talking there language and you can tell they were talking about me , They kept looking at the customers and laughing.. will not be back to bad I would stop in there a few times a month also many of my friends would stop in .. NO MORE

There food just keeps getting better! I love their falafel (crispy but not too spicey for kids), Shwarma, chicken & beef kebabs, chicken and need Kafta creamy hummus, fatoush salad, rice pilaf and it delicious whether you order it in a sandwich or as an entire meal. You can pre order your meal via phone or if your ordering sandwiches they will make it to order on site. I love how creamy their hummus is!

Akruti P.

MY favourite place for fast food near me! Such fast service and their tahini sauce is amazing. Very reasonable peices and their place is almost always packed. Pick up only no area for seatinf.

Valerie L.

Based on the reviews I thought this was going to be much much better. Got the chicken shawarma. The woman making it seemed really annoyed that I bothered to come in today. No pickles on the wrap. A layer of garlic so thin I can't even taste it, which leaves me with chicken and tomatoes. Eh. It's ok. The hummus is pretty bland and very oily. It's your basic Mediterranean fare; no different than any other place I've been. I don't get the hype.

This place is FANTASTIC! The owners are extremely friendly, and are truly invested in the quality of the food they produce. Everything is seasoned perfectly, and the fattoush dressing is the best I've ever had. There are multiple Mediterranean restaurants in my area, but I will drive 40 minutes just to get it from here.

Hidden gem of Royal Oak. The food tastes so authentic. The staff is friendly and always has great recommendations. The chicken shawarma wrap is AWESOME. I also recommend their chicken fattoush, it tastes so fresh, there's nothing I hate more than a soggy salad. I'm very picky about my tabbouleh so I was hesitant to try it at first but if you're middle eastern this is perfection, tastes the way tabbouleh should taste! I stop in at least 2-3 times a week.

WOULD NOT RECOMMEND!! Just moved to the area and was trying to find a local take out area and I was very disappointed. Menu on line is terrible, prices are outrageous, portions are small, and customer service might just be the worst I have EVER experienced. Really disappointing because it really has so much potential, hopefully they can find new management.

Used to be a nice spot for some good shawarma. But the service has taken such a downward turn. Rude, not helpful at all, in a way that makes you feel stupid for asking for additional toppings. Also pretty expensive for what it is. Many better options in the area.

No menu and no website and this is a take out only place. I called in an order and the owner was the one who answered the phone he said 'you're looking at an old menu an old customer put a photo of on Internet-- those are not the packages.' And I asked where I could find a current menu. He said 'I do not have one online- just tell me how many people you are trying to feed.' When I'm catering a party I'd like to review options myself instead of having it read to me over the phone. You can tell it's high volume for the small size of the place and there is certainly a rushed feel from the staff. A menu with descriptions on line would be a BASIC 1st step in having a take out only food establishment. Food is good....customer service and professionalism are lacking though. Too many other places with the very same cuisine that are happy to have your business.

This place has been at the end of my street for years and I just came here for the first time a couple days ago. Now, I love Mediterranean food but this food is so fresh and it's made fast. Their fattoush salad was good but their dressing was a little on the sour side. Maybe a little too much lemon. But everything else was good. I got the chicken platter to share and it was enough for like 5-6 people. It was huge! I had leftovers for days. Their chicken is cooked to perfection and their rice was made perfectly. I would suggest this place if you need some Mediterranean food fast!

Jamie K.

I've never loved a fattoush salad so much in my entire life. I just wish it wasn't $15+! I think they could definitely benefit from some kind of rewards program for returning customers. Their other meat dishes are a little pricy but the quality and taste is amazing. There is no other Mediterranean cuisine that even comes close in this area.

Danielle K.

My favorite Mediterranean place around hands down! It's just a small carry out place yet you can also go in and order out! It's all made right in front of you! For the first time we ended up there to order out and you can custom order everything. Meaning you can put whatever you want in your shawarma, and there was so many choices. There baba ganoush is also the best around!

Peggy B.

Ordered beef kafta sandwhich It the bread was so dried out, like extremely old. The kafta meat was so dry out it was the worst! So sad after reading all these reviews.

Rani G.

A really cute little place but big taste! You can only carry out but the food is oh so good. Had the crushed lentil soup, chicken fattoush salad, chicken shwarma wrap, and the hummus......all excellent. My sister gets carry out all the time as she lives nearby. And every time it's excellent! Give it a must try!

Have run by this place 100s of times on my weekly run along Campbell. Finally decided to give it a try and was really craving fatoosh. I ended up ordering a medium house salad, since I am not so fond of pita chips, 4 grape veggie leaves, small hummus and a small tabouli. The grape leaves were garnished with the pickled radish and I ate them and spit them out. They tasted horrible and were maybe past their date or the pickling juice was rank. The fatoosh dressing was so good and tasty that I decided to drench and drown my salad in it to make sure I got as much of the dressing flavor in every savored bite. The hummus is just okay as well as the tabouli. The grape leaves are alright too. The salad dressing was by far the best fatoosh dressing I have had so far. I would definitely go back for the dressing and house salad for sure.

I would definitely go back for the dressing and house salad for sure. I am so glad I tried this place out last month. I now get carry out for my husband and I at least 1-3 times a week depending on how often I get a craving for my fatoosh salad. I always order the grape leaves for a bit more weight to my meal and sometimes the lentil soup which tastes better with a bit of lemon. My hubby loves the chicken shawarma bowl since he discovered it weeks ago and he is hooked on it. Have been going to this place for over a month and I am so hooked I went 2 days in a row and crave and eat their fatoosh salad 2x a week since my first visit over a month ago. My hubby enjoys their chicken shawarma bowl and I like their crushed lentil but it's way better with a half a lemon juice for a cup size container. My hubby thinks it's unbelievable how often I want this place but I remind him no other place makes a fatoosh dressing the way WOW does. It's hands down the best fatoosh dressing I have had thus far.
