Food was delicious and service was great! We went there on Thursday night and the place was packed. We had to wait about 45min. So call in advance to make a reservation. You can BYOB but if you don't have anything with you there is a liquor store next to the restaurant :)

I can't believe I'd never eaten here before. I'd return in a heartbeat. The food was delicious, the portions huge and the cost - more than fair. Our waitress was lovely and personable-and service excellent. Warm pita bread and complimentary olives, cheese, pickled radish starter provided. Both Greek and Fattoush salads that accompany entrees were superb. And a healthy serving... More

This place is simply amazing! Being from Australia we have lots of middle eastern restaurants. However this place is the best I've tried. Even all the starters were to die for. Absolutely amazing.

If you are looking for an elegant restaurant in an beautiful setting Carousel is not your place, but if you are looking for arguably the best Middle Eastern cuisine in LA don't miss it! Since my brother's mother in law passed on many years ago I have not tasted such a good and authentic Lebanese food! Please don't forget to... More

I don't usually choose Middle Eastern cuisine when dining out, but after enjoying Carousel's delicious Armenian/Middle Eastern food, I think I'll be returning here soon. Everything we ordered was freshly prepared and delicious. We started with the fattoush salad and some falafel, followed by the Chicken Schwarma and the Carousel combination plate of filet mignon and chicken and another Carousel... More

Carousel, tucked in the back corner if a non-descript stripmall off Hollywood Boulevard in the middle of little Armenia provides an extremely delicious and abundant repast of typical Armenian/Lebanese food. Unlike its big brother restaurant in Glendale, this Carousel is intimate, quiet and brightly lit. Our absolute favorite dish here is kibbeh nayeh: the lebanese/armenian answer to steak tartare.

Epic and unpretentious dining. Get the carousel party and you will be eating for hours. The food is excellent. I would love to see the kitchen. To make this work is has to have military precision or be run ay an army of militant Armenian grandma's. Every time I am in LA I visit this place and meet my friends... More

I was on business in the area and was traveling with someone who used to live in LA and recommended this restaurant. We were not disappointed. I have not eaten a lot of Lebanese cuisine but this has to be some of the best out there. We had a variety of appetizers but my favorite was Muhammara - walnuts crushed... More

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
Hollywood
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
