Carousel Restaurant - Hollywood
Excellent middle eastern cuisine with very good service and reasonable prices.
It was a great evening, but I’m not sure why I didn’t get my points!
It was my moms favourite dining experience of our entire trip to California. I took her to IVY, Craig’s , catch and a few more VERY fancy places. She put Carousel at the top. Loved it
We have been regulars at Carousel for the past several years. The food and service are always solid. This time the service was a little bit less than typical, but it might be because we came at 4 PM. The we ordered lamb kebab and filet mignon (shish) kebab. The meat although we asked for medium came with almost no pink in the lamb. The shish was cooked just right. The plate of olives and pickles radishes taste it off. I mentioned it to the waiter who explained that they make all of their own pickled radishes. They tasted medicinal. This is the first time we’ve ever had that experience. The green olives had a similar medicinal taste. Not sure if the they were the freshest. The waiter kindly replaced them for us (no change detected though), and I understand it’s not their problem but I think it should be looked at by the restaurant. The service was yeah they’re friendly, but not very attentive. And during our meal we were interrupted twice not to check on our meal but to remove a small empty bowl. This struck us as a bit odd since the restaurant was not busy. Overall, we liked the food and hope our average experience is a one time thing.
