Best Lebanese food! – A bit expensive ($48 for two appetizers, one entree, and non-alcoholic drinks), but the food was absolutely delicious! The hommos b-tehiney & falafel (the best I've ever had), the Bastourma (or Armenian salami - tasty), and the beef shawarma were all very, very good. The Jillab was excellent, service was courteous and attentive, and the warm atmosphere was conducive to conversation. This restaurant deserves 5 stars!
A little pricy ($40 a person) but an absolute feast. Food is spectular. – The best Lebanese restaurant many years ago in Beirut (it was told to me) was named Maroush. Since then Maroush's all over the world in have sprung up in homage to the original. (There is a change of 11 in London alone)
Like Beirut, London, and seemingly everywhere else Marouch seems to be the best Lebanese food in Los Angeles. While it's a little pricey at around $40 a person the meal is an absolute feast. The grilled meats are spectacular, the hummus is great, but above all the simple yet shockingly good fried Halloum is the "must order" on the menu.
Fantastic, FANTASTIC!!!!!! Never been disappointed by this place. Service has been A++ and the service waits on our table hand and foot. My lebanese boss states that this place is the closest thing to his mom's cooking.... and the price is afordable.
Kind, kind restaurant – Wow! So, we thought we were going to have about fifteen in our party, but ended up having eight reserved and four show up. They at first told us over the phone that we had to be seated when our whole party showed, but with the amount of people who showed, they totally seated us with eight people ... when there was only one who showed in the beginning. They were kind and courteous, and they really waited on us hand and foot. Thank you Marouch!
Great Food But HORRIBLE SERVICE!! – We have been going to this restaurant for years now because of how GREAT their food is. Each visit we spend no less than $120! Mr. Owner & The Waiters got upset because there was no EXTRA TIP left when we finished, but all the GRATUITY had already been added to the bill! They are not as friendly as they used to be! I think since he's a big shot now he has the luxury of being rude to his good customers! They also refused our business on Valentine's Day, considering their restaurant was EMPTY!!! They tried claiming the restaurant was FULL!!! What time were these people going to show up?? There were two couples dining in there!! They practically pushed us out the door!! They've become VERY RUDE & DISCRIMINATING!! I love their food, but the HORRIBLE SERVICE just makes it Not Worth Going To!! Our Family WILL NEVER BE DINING THERE AGAIN!!!
cheese turnover is great – this nondescript place in a shady looking strip mall is great. i love the cheese turnover, the hummus and the falafel. the chicken shwarma and the ground chicken are also great. the rice is very tasty. i would definitely go back. by the way, the lebanese red wine (forgot the name), is also very good - that is, if you like wine that is not too tannic. i would definitely go back.
great middle eastern, lebanese – we went there for lunch, were basically the only customers in the restaurant, so we had excellent service. the food is really good too. and another plus for this restaurant is the price!
Fantastic Lebanese food – I have eaten here many times and have never been disappointed. The labneh is absolutely delicious, as are the kibbeh nayyeh and the shish kabobs. The owner is very nice and the belly dancers are quite entertaining. My Iraqi boyfriend loves the food too...One of my favorite restaurants in LA.
The best – Over the eight years I've lived in LA, and Marouch is the best restaurant I've come across. There is fancier food, but I'm certain you can't beat the value here. Make sure you try the foul and the walnut-paste dip thing. Order anything off the left side of the menu, actually. Great for vegetarians.
Wonderful for lunch – Great food, great service, nice atmosphere. one of the best kept secrets in hollywood.
