  • "Thought the food was excellent and the entertainment was worth the price once. I wouldn't come back soon for the full experience, but the dinner was good enough for a revisit itself. I'd recommend it as a unique LA experience."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "I was hoping for the music, dancers and entertainers on Thrusday evening. However they only entertain on Friday and Saturday. :-("
    Dined on 3/6/2014
  • "The food is amazing. There are some very unique and delicious items that you won't be able to find in most other restaurants. My primary complaint is that the manager/owner seemed very anxious about making sure that we vacate the table no later than 9pm. He asked us a few times and made it clear to us that we must vacate by 9pm. We felt like we were asked to eat fast and get out."

  • "Great to eat before a show in Glendale or Pasadena. Easy to park. My wife was temporarily in a wheelchair and we felt that the restaurant went out of their way to serve. The food and drinks are always first class and it is a treat to eat great Middle Eastern."

  • "Our food and service was amazing. I would highly recommend this restaurant! The food was delicious and well priced. We had the beef shawarma, shrimp skewer and an appetizer of liitle meat pies with a yogurt and tomato sauce, soooo good. Order whatever sounds good, you can't go wrong. We had our rehearsal dinner at Carousel 6 months ago and it was crowd pleaser."

  • "Had a good experience several years ago, we had a medium size group and ordered one of the family meals which was perfect. We recently headed there for a girls night out and we had a great time. Food was great, good ambiance and attentive service."

  • "I had a Swedish guest with me and I wanted him to see a belly dancing performance. They were suppose to start at 11:30 which by then half of their guests had already left, however, they were later than 11:30 by another 15 minutes."
    Dined on 1/11/2014
  • "Aside from the food being good and the service being good, this quite possibly was the worst dining experience I ever had. It was a Sunday evening and the restaurant neglected to tell me that there was a huge party happening right in the middle of the restaurant. We were seated right next to the band stand and could not hear each other for the entire time of our meal. I felt like we were in the middle of a Wedding reception that was in full swing."

  • "Enjoyed the food, service, and show. Great place to celebrate special occasions."
    Dined on 12/20/2013
  • "My 3 friends and I had a fun time having lunch at Carousel last week. The food was very tasty and reasonably priced & there was a wide range of choices. All of us liked the entrees we chose & thought the dessert recommended by the. waiter was excellent. He was very friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. The restaurant looked especially festive as it was decorated for the holidays."

  • "Carousel is one of my favorite musicals but Carousel restaurant beats the musical because the food and ambiance are fabulous!"
    Dined on 12/8/2013
  • "Our go to spot for Arabic food (lots of overlap with Persian food) in Glendale. They are always hospitable and kind. The food is delicious and abundant. It's great for lunch or for a fun night of bellydancing."
    Dined on 11/30/2013
  • "If you have not been to this place you are missing out on the best cuisine in LA. Do the family style menu where they bring you several of their amazing dishes. This takes the guess work out of it and allows you to try things you would never know tasted so good. Ask for the garlic sauce as no meal is complete without it. This is my favorite place to eat and I drive from Santa Monica just for it! My friends and family could never understand why I drive so far until they ate there."

  • "We came here for my sisters bday. Food was delicious! I woukd definitely come back."
    Dined on 11/7/2013
  • "The Lebanese-Armenian cuisine is good. It's not great, but some of the dishes are executed well, while others (shish kebab) were overdone, dry and small pieces. It's got to be hard catering to Armenian families who have mom's and grandmothers that can out-cook any restaurant in town, but some dishes, the kuftah yogurt is excellent. The kebneh nayyah (raw steak, like tartare) is good, albeit a little oily. Came on a Saturday night at 7pm just to eat, not to stay for the show, and the host looked at us like we were aliens. I tried to explain we had other plans after dinner; after 6 min of banter, we were seated and told not to stay past 9pm, which we weren't anyhow, but being told that is a bit off-putting. Wait staff barely helped us."

  • "We had an amazing time and cannot wait to return. The music, food, and ambience was so much fun. We cannot wait to return. This time we are going to get a hotel room and stay to dance all night. Great place!"
    Dined on 10/26/2013
  • "The food was fresh and good They give you so much we could of ordered half of what we did. We took home the leftovers and had another dinner. Will go back again, Also the waiter was so nice and helpful."
    Dined on 10/17/2013
  • "Haven't been here in a while and forgot how yummy it is! We had a feast! The hummus was amazing as were the kebabs! The bulgur side dish was sooooo good I'd go back just for that!"
