Our Restaurant

Located in the heart of the Downtown Los Angeles Fashion District and newly opened second location at Westfield Culver City, Anwar's Kitchen offers 100% Halal certified authentic Mediterranean recipes created by Palistinian-American Social Media star Anwar Jibawi and his mother Amal Jibawi. Anwar and his mother have shared beloved videos through the years and various cooking shows and comedy sketches on YouTube, Instagram, and TikTok - hence the genesis of his restaurant. Most of our signature recipes come from Amal that have been passed down in the Jibawi family for generations. Specializing in Middle Eastern cuisine, everything is made in-house from scratch. We celebrated our flagship DTLA store opening on November 28, 2020 and the new second location in Culver City on July 9, 2022. Open 7 days a week, we are excited to bring our fast-casual cuisine to you through dine-in and take-out. Contactless delivery is available via Order Direct Online, Grubhub, DoorDash, Postmates, UberEats, and Toast.
