This place has an eating area but I'd advise getting the takeaway - I love Lebanese and I regularly order from here! Chicken shawarma plate is great.

Visiting the Glendale area for a trip to the Magic Castle and we found this great restaurant. Best Middle Eastern cuisine we have had in a long time. Service was beyond excellent and the atmosphere was enjoyable, as we sat on the sun porch for our lunchtime meal. We enjoyed the hummus, pickle tray, Mediterranean salad, lentil soup, lamb kabob...

This restaurant is one of our favorites. The food is always fantastic and authentic. We often order take-out food for a group of people. The Mezza selection is wonderful, the kebabs, stuffed grape leaves, and the shawarma (chicken & beef) are always a hit.

Carousel is a great place to go for a lot of variety. You can try lots of different dishes and even enjoy some entertainment on weekends.

We go there sometimes if we want some middle eastern cuisine and belly dancing) Good option is when you order all inclusive option. It's a lot of food but everything tastes great. The only downside is waiting time sometimes is quite long.

The food at Carousel is outstanding, and there are many delicious choices. There are often large parties there, so the people watching is also good. We always have a good time at Carousel.

There are several Carousels, this is the best, maybe because it is located in a n area that has a lot of people who know the cuisine and demand excellence, but whatever the reason, the food here is superb.

My buddy Dave and I are in Glendale, CA to see a college football game between USC and Colorado and we wanted to find a great restaurant in close proximity to the Hilton. Things looked pretty bleak as Glendale seemed like a restaurant wasteland. That is, until we discovered Carousel. From the moment we were greeted by the lovely Hostess,... More
