Knowing that Glendale is the Armenian Diaspora capitol of the world, I asked an Armenian co-worker what his favourite restaurant was in Glendale – hand’s down, Raffi’s Place. I hadn’t had a nice plate of lavash and greens since I was last in Yerevan and Raffi’s didn’t disappoint. It was a busy Thursday night and I was seated at a... More

Just had lunch with friends yesterday based on Yelp recommendation. It is a $$ spot with a concise menu - not the full blown middle eastern mezzehs - but cannot complain!

This restaurant has amazing kabab with delicious barbecued peppers. One of the best ground beef kabab I have ever had. Nice clean place with valet parking. Service is pretty good & reasonable prices. We were there on Saturday Night & it was very busy, so make reservation in advance.

The most outstanding feature of this place is the sheer size, they must have have around 400 covers. However the service for the most part still managed to stay afloat with the occasional snag here or there, but that can happen at the cutest of places too. They have the option of outdoor and indoor seating. The menu covers all... More

Have their Tadik. It's perfect. I love their Filet Minion and their Shirazi salad. The service is perfection. It is always busy and their is usually quite a wait for seating but that's because it is so absolutely delish!!!!

Like other travelers we found this restaurant off TAdvisor and went by the high ratings. We go out to middle eastern food a lot in Michigan so our standards are very high. We enjoyed the Hummus but the chicken Kabob was a little dry, and the Mahi Mahi Kabob was good but not as good as we have had back... More

Normally I let mediocre restaurants slide. But given the consistent 5-star reviews, I felt I had to comment. Honestly, I'm flummoxed by all of the high praise. We were in the neighborhood and given its high Yelp rating, we decided to check it out. We ordered the lamb and boneless chicken kabobs + a Greek salad. Both the lamb and... More

A typical middle eastern (kabob) place. The food is definitely not gourmet as I found the meats to be rather dry, tasty but limited to what it is. There is not much flavor to explore. The basmati rice I thought was bland and boring. What you get on a big plate is your selection of meat a roasted tomato and... More
