Cons: Limited Parking

I've been going there for 12 years and its the closest I've found to the home cooked food I was raised on! Its a casual upbeat atmosphere and family friendly. The Lentil soup is to die for. The Hummos, Taboule and Fatoush salad are spot on! They've been consitently the tastiest, not to mention the prices are decent for the large portions you get. The have daily specials, different dishes each day of the week and are absolutley delicious, their Friday dish (stuffed chicken) is out of this world. I love and recommend this place to anyone looking for a good Middle Eastern restaurant.

This is my aunt and uncle's favorite restaurant. We eat there every time we visit at their house. Excellent take-out. I love all the salads and their falafel is to die for. I highly recommend this place for inexpensive, healthy Middle Eastern food.

Okay, if you want great mediteranean food, this is the place to go. If you are in a rush, avoid this place like the plague. If you would like to cozy up to your server, head for the hills because it won't happen here! \r

Pros: the food taste, parking

Most of the other reviewers of Carnival have been spot on. The place is always crowded, (even midweek), but the food is so good, and the portions are so gigantic that its worth the wait. The beef and chicken shiskabab are incredible -

Pros: Food, portions, value, parking

Carnival is so wildly good I eat there almost every week; the chicken kabob, rice, green salad, yogurt salad, hummus, falafel.. It is all so good. The real draw for me, though, is the unbelievable tabouleh. It's the best I have ever had.

People come from far away to have this outstanding Lebanese fare. Everything on the menu is fantastic! Huge portions make for great leftovers the next day. Usually crowded and busy, yet the service remains friendly and gracious. Highly

We ate here for the first time last night, and we literally had to wait 20 minutes for our check after asking for it! The food was pretty good, nothing amazing but good. The french fries were great, and my falafel sandwich was good too,

Pros: Good fries, Easy parking

Great place--the best hummous and baba ganoush I've ever had. Haven't had a bad dish there--I prefer the lamb, but go nuts. Prices are reasonable as well. Carnival has the distinct feel of a neighborhood meeting place. On my shortlist of great valley restaurants.

PROS: Excellent food--what else do you want?
CONS: Bring back the Beirut Chicken!
