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!
Great place--strange yet oddly transfixing neon-metallic decor, a huge and diverse menu (with things you won't see in most other Thai restaurants), and great prices. This is my only Thai stop in the valley. Hey, I ate there last night! Open until 4 a.m. most nights.
PROS: Great, diverse food, at great prices
CONS: Parking (but what else is new?)
Very good and filling pitas/wraps, very fresh-tasting, and at reasonable prices. Seating can be limited, but they have a walk-up window--just pick up something and go.
PROS: Excellent inexpensive food
CONS: a wee bit small
This place is a good reminder that popular != quality. Very overcrowded and impersonal. For my first visit, which I thought would be a cleaning, I was made to wait a couple hours, then plopped into a chair for an x-ray, and shuffled out as soon as possible--no cleaning occured. I saw an actual dentist for literally 30 seconds (I timed it). The actual cleaning was scheduled for 2 months later. Of course, they took the full mouth x-ray which insurance only covers once every 5 years, so to switch dentists (which I did) requires getting copies of the x-rays from them (for which they charge) or just paying for new ones. They're really running a racket over there...avoid 'em!
PROS: Uhhh... nice big sign in front?
CONS: Gives dentists a bad name
Large operation but extremely efficient and friendly--giant in-house eyewear store so it's easy to get an exam and your glasses/contacts/etc. in one trip.
