This is not high end. It is a family place to eat and have fun.Nobody speaks English without a thick accent of various eastern European slant.. I was impressed by the DJ. She played and sang 50's music. All I was told was that she was Bulgarian. She's a Susan Boyle.You wouldn't expect that wonderful voice from her persona. Then... More

The furnishings in this restaurant are a bit outdated, but the menu is completely awesome: fresh, authentic, and well-prepared. I've been a few times but have never made it on a night when there is belly-dancing. I imagine that this must be fun and authentic as well.

We have eaten at Karoun several times, and we really like the family (very friendly people!) and the good food. The appetizers are very tasty, especially the stuffed grape-leaves. The kabobs (chicken and lamb) both had tender, moist meat, and the lentil barley soup was delicious, although it was rice, not barley. The side veggies are fine, but not something... More

We have been to Karoun before and it is always a pleasant experience. They have nice mix of live music, specially if you are into European, Russian, Middle-Eastern music. Belly dancer and the act with the ring are very nice and enjoyable entertainment. The price for the event was $75 pp with three course meal, champagne, fun props to ring... More

We liked it because you can sit at their bar and have a drink and appetizer where it is possible to talk without a lot of background noise. A lot of people go for dinner and the belly dancer on Friday.

We had reservations for 8, sat right away. Waited 10-15 for service, so I asked the owner who was at the desk. Started yelling at me! Can you believe that. Rude , arrogant. After that service and food was great, Will not go back because i refuse to give that man a nickel!

Went for take out at 5:45 pm on a Saturday. Not a sole dining in the restaurant so I was initially concerned about the restaurant. Relying on Trip Advisor reviews I went ahead and ordered tabouli salad, grape leaves, baked kibbe and spinach pies. Got home and hoped for the best. I was surprised to enjoy a very good meal...
