Middle Eastern
From of our family to yours, Carousel is the premier Los Angeles area restaurant providing guests with the complete culinary experience when it comes to enjoying traditional middle eastern and Lebanese cuisine. In the Middle Eastern culture, meza (Lebanese term for appetizer) consists of a vast array of small sized, hot and cold dishes, great for sampling and sharing. At Carousel, our menu offers a selection of kebabs to seafood to an array of vegetarian items. We offer more than 60 meza items, ranging from familiar dishes, such as hummus, falafel and tabouleh to more traditional delicacies. Everything that we serve comes from original family recipes passed down through generations. With the supervision of our Chef de Cuisine and co-owner, Mrs. Rose Tcholakian, each dish that is served is sure to bestow the quality and freshness Carousel is well known for. For those unfamiliar to Lebanese food, a helpful service staff will guide you through what is sure to be a habit-forming journey.

Superb customer service paired with great ambiance and delicious food. Everything was fresh and vibrant with flavorful. I loved that people were celebrating Eid and birthdays all under one roof. If you pull up for a birthday, don’t sleep on the song they play over the speakers for you.

Pro tip: order the grilled Halloumi, an off-the-menu dish.

We went here based on our hotel concierge and since she was Armenian, I trusted her recommendation. The food was great, we both had the lentil soup and cabbage salad to start. It was so yummy. My husband had the lamb chops which were so delicious and tender I wished I order that dish. I had a dish that was one of their specialties and it was flavorful and tender as well. The ambiance is nice and cultural. The service is great, I would definitely recommend.

This was my first time visiting this restaurant. I ordered two appetizers - a sausage dish and chicken shawarma (sp?). The sausage was just awful and the chicken, while flavorful, was very dry. I had heard great things about this place being the definitive destination for Armenian cuisine, but honestly it was quite possibly the worst meal I've eaten in a very long time. Maybe ever! I won't be going back.

We have been dining at Carousel Restaurant many years now. It’s our favorite Mediterranean restaurant in the Los Angeles area (Glendale). Good choice on menu for 2 people is the Hafleh Beiruti family style meal. In addition, the staff (especially Gareen) is always very friendly and courteous.

If you like Middle Eastern food, this is a good place for it.
The menu has a huge selection of Armenian, Lebanese and
Iranian food. Some of the items bring back memories of
a childhood where growing up the family made these dishes.

We had a few appetizers which are filling and enough for
a meal. We shared entrees and enjoyed all.

The service is great and the ambiance is comfortable.

The Carousel restaurant is worth the drive .
Friends and I drove from Orange County to Glendale to spend the evening there dinning and dancing. The band , both singers and the belly dancers were great .
As for the food it was so delicious and the service was awesome .
The place was clean too .
I would definitely recommend friends and family to go there .

We arrived very early 4:30, hoping to order from the lower priced lunch menu. According to their website and as per phone conversation, their Lunch menu supposedly ends and their Dinner Menu begins at 5:00 P.M.. Unfortunately, at 4:30 P.M., we were handed the higher priced Dinner menu - for example, Chicken Breast Kebab was $16.50, but it should have been only $12.50 based upon the lunch menu price. Under the circumstances, it wasn't worth arguing over $4.00, for obvious reasons you can figure out, but did feel a bit cheated, since we actually stated that we were here for LUNCH! The food was tasty and we enjoyed Lebanese and Armenian beers. Service was great and we were able to beat the traffic to the concert at the Greek Theatre nearby.

We were at the Carousel a couple of years back, but tried it again last week, and were extremely pleased with the food and service. If you are up for entertainment, you can choose that option, but if you are not, the room without entertainment is relatively quiet to engage in a conversation and enjoy your meal.
Very pleased overall
