We stepped into a very large and festive room, obviously designed for large and lively family celebrations, so I didn't expect much when we popped in for a late lunch for two on a Saturday afternoon. Well, hey! This was a great serendipitous experience. Husband ordered the cheese boreg and an Armenian sausage dish -- all very good. But I had the grilled shrimp over rice and I have not had better anywhere. I was served a plate of 10 large juicy succulent shrimp that tasted of a bit of char without being the slightest bit overdone. I have been to seafood restaurants all over this country and this is the best preparation of grilled shrimp ever. Service was excellent, truly professional. I highly recommend Carousel. It's much more of a serious restaurant than you expect and a very impressive kitchen.

Being from the middle east, I can tell you that this is very similar to what we would be eating back home. The food is excellent!!!

We went on a Sat night and apparently the place becomes more of a party place. There is a performing band which sings spanish, arabic and other types of music. There is also a dance floor for people to dance on. If you are looking for a quiet night then you might want to avoid it on Fri or Sat night. Otherwise, you can sit outside or there is a side dining area where we sat in and the music there isn't as loud
