Visited this restaurant for lunch in our stay in Glendale CA. It's a must go place for lunch or dinner. Amazing selections in the menu. Kbeeh ( minced meat or veggies in mixed dough with sauces ) were unique. I may have spelt this wrong. We tried lamb and chicken kebabs. They were very soft and very tasty. Try a... More

I meet an number of colleagues for lunch at this restaurant . The food was delicious , lots of choice , great quality and flavour. I really enjoyed the meal and it was good value for money. One major downside however was the garlic kickback. For those of you of a more amorous nature I suggest you take your partner... More

The dining area is nice and open, with decorative wooden screens placed strategically about the space. A clearly, well-maintained space or recently remodeled and very clean. My family was fifteen minutes late for our reservation AND had a play to catch at 8PM. The host was friendly and accommodating, suggesting that we shouldn't have a problem getting fed and out...

Once again, a really delicious meal in this fine Middle Eastern restaurant. I have never been to the one in Hollywood, but the Glendale restaurant is welcoming with a huge inviting interior having walked down the long hall. We eat here during the week, as the weekends are very busy, and noisy, though great fun. The food is absolutely delicious... More

Our party of five very much enjoyed the wonderful Lebanese (Middle Eastern/Mediterranean) cuisine and service at Carousel for a Wednesday night dinner. Entering the dining room was like entering a different world or earlier era with unique decor and raised our anticipation for a fun experience from the get-go. I went with a very healthy and tasty Vegetarian's Delight, a... More
