    Marouch is on Santa Monica Blvd. west of Vermont, on the north side of the street. You can probably find a lot of comments for it by doing a search, but it's probably the best in the area. There's also a Carousel in Hollywood.

      Second the recommendation for Marouch, which is on Santa Monica Blvd., in a mini-mall at the corner of Edgemont (thanks for the correction, arkestra).

      I also really like Caroussel -- it's in the Hollywood-Hye plaza on Hollywood Blvd.

      4905 Santa Monica Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90029, USA

          I had a good shawarma sandwich at Nairi, an Armenian deli. Here's a related post:
          Gotta be something on Franklin's restaurant row.

          Zankou Chicken has really good kebabs, pita, and hummus. Only drawback is it's really small, so I usually order take-out...

          Zankou Chicken, 5065 W Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles - (323) 665-7842
