Highly recommend the steak tar tar

Carousel is always one of my favorite places to treat myself in LA. Located in Glendale, it's a spacious sit down Middle Eastern restaurant. I adore the tar tar - nicely seasoned and goes great with the tomatoes and onions that ring the dish. I could eat their hummus, baba ghanoush and pita bread... read more

Outstanding Middle Eastern, Armenian, Turkish style food from the Levant. Without question the best food of this genre in Los Angeles. The Carousel Feast is a combination of three multi dish courses of small plates, appetizers or mezze both hot and cold. At $36./person, it would be a bargain at twice the price. I grew up with two Grandmothers, a... More

Our very good friend who knows this restaurant and know good Lebanese food took us here - fabulous! The warm bread - both crispy and soft - was delicious. The wrapped grape leaves were among the best I ever had - the hot courses included lamb, steak and chicken...but the standout was the chicken with a delicious sauce. Excellent hummus,... More

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
