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.

We went to celebrate my newphews birthday, very good food and we had a great time Place was very nice and the place was run very organized but in the end they rushed us out, because there was a big party waiting to be seated.

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

We went twice to this restaurant , the food was fantastic and delicious, service was first class by Ali and the ambience was great, if you like to try Lebanese food you have to go and try the best food. Carousel restaurant in Glendale. I will give 5 stars.

This place feels like it's run by people who know their stuffs. Like you know the food is good when you walk into a Chinese restaurant where no one speaks English and your cashier is the 10 year old boss's son. The food comes in decent portions and tastes great. Parking is convenience. There are also outdoor seatings.

There's another original Carousel restaurant over in Hollywood. This one has been open for maybe 15 years now. On weekends you have live entertainment--belly dancers and such. It's probably best to go here with a large group of people so you can have as many dishes as you want. I say that you need a large group of people, because... More

What a surprise to find out the the Carousel Restaurant is actually a family run Eastern Mediterranean (Lebanese). The healthful fare features great salads, kabobs and many other Lebanese (and some Armenian and American) dishes. We were in Glendale for 3 nights and went back to the Carousel several times. If the weather is nice, ask for outdoor (covered area... More

This place is the real deal. Service, decor and great food. I have celiac disease and they bent over backwards to accommodate. They even made me fresh tabouli without bulgar wheat. Be sure to get waiter Fadi, he is a charm.
