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.

    Food always delicious. Service - most especially the host - always up and down, never consistent. Waiter did his best to rescue what he obviously realized was their fault. Waited 20-25mns to be served… Again, the food is amazing. Go for the food!

    We had the best time! As soon as we walked in we felt like family. We started with a fried appetizer sampler! Best fried cheese combo we have ever had! We both ordered an entre which came with a soup or salad. Everything was so fresh. Ask for more garlic sauce! We went early and had the place to ourselves but it was filling up by 6pm on a Friday. We loved the inside décor and truly felt like we were in another country. Very impressive! Kardashians sure know the best of the best!

    We were the fist to arrive for lunch and it took one hour to get our food, only after asking for it! Adding insult to injury, the food was overcooked and tasteless. When there are so many excellent restaurants with good food and service, it’s baffling that anyone would waste their money here.

    Appetizers were excellent, the shish kebab was decent but nothing special. Plenty of pita bread. Service was very good also, the appetizers were brought out quickly and efficiently. The waiter checked on us during the meal. The staff always seemed to be in a rush and were not very personable.

    The food and service was great. I had put on our reservation that it was for a birthday. I never know why they ask if it's a special occasion unless they are going to read it. I also asked to be sat in the patio, but was actually fine with where they sat us inside. Regarding the dessert, when we knew it wasn't coming we reminded them about it and charged $7 for it. I was a bit surprised about that as I felt they should have told us that there was a charge so we could have perhaps chosen the dessert to bring out. Anyhow, once it came it was a nice scoop of vanilla ice cream with a sparkling candle on top, but just the smallest drizzle of chocolate syrup. I guess we could have asked for more. Anyhow, that was the only thing I had to complain about. Other than that we ordered a feast and got one! We all really had a good time too and would go back, which is why I am still giving 5 stars!

    What a great night full of an abundance of small plates and unusual dishes! The noise level was high, but that was because the restaurant was full. We got the family style meal and all the plates were delicious and generous. We had plenty and took lots home. I highly recommend this place as a special event restaurant - it's memorable!
