Middle Eastern
From of our family to yours, Carousel is the premier Los Angeles area restaurant providing guests with the complete culinary experience when it comes to enjoying traditional middle eastern and Lebanese cuisine. In the Middle Eastern culture, meza (Lebanese term for appetizer) consists of a vast array of small sized, hot and cold dishes, great for sampling and sharing. At Carousel, our menu offers a selection of kebabs to seafood to an array of vegetarian items. We offer more than 60 meza items, ranging from familiar dishes, such as hummus, falafel and tabouleh to more traditional delicacies. Everything that we serve comes from original family recipes passed down through generations. With the supervision of our Chef de Cuisine and co-owner, Mrs. Rose Tcholakian, each dish that is served is sure to bestow the quality and freshness Carousel is well known for. For those unfamiliar to Lebanese food, a helpful service staff will guide you through what is sure to be a habit-forming journey.

    Lebanese-Armenian, great combo. Appetizers were good (about "Mantee" mini meat pies, they were served inside pasta shells that were a little dried out, sort of chewey). For entree, falafel in the shape of mini donuts -- very tasty, spiced in a way I've never enjoyed before. Dessert: mint tea with yummy Basma cake that tasted totally different than baklava. Service was very good.

    If your party is 8 or more you must do the Carousel Feast option for $40 a person. It’s seriously worth it. To get the best experience definitely do the family style dinner. There’s sanitizer and servers are all wearing masks. Bathroom very well kept. Parking was a breeze Saturday night at 6:30pm. Food came very quick. Great dining experience. Our server was very kind and knowledgeable.

    I love this place so much. The food is off the charts good. My favorite Middle Eastern place in LA by far. And I prefer this location over the Glendale one. Sure, the parking sucks but it's not as much of thing. Just a great restaurant. And just to throw it out there: the jalapeño salad is way overlooked and it's awesome

    Our family has been going to carousel for years. The food is consistently delicious and the service is always fast and amazing. There really is no Lebanese/Armenian Restaurant as delicious as Carousel! We’ve tried so many and this one is our absolute favorite.

    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.
