We have dined here for years. We skip the "dance night" and go on other evenings. I am not totally familiar with middle eastern foods, so I like that the menu is descriptive and the waitstaff is happy to explain the different dishes. In fact, everyone who works here is eager to please and knows the menu well. It's really lovely inside, beautifully lit and has seating that allows a good deal of privacy. It has a romantic vibe to it, but kids are certainly welcome. The food is delicious and the menu offers a wide variety of selections. It is not the cheapest place in town, but well worth it. Definately a favorite of ours.

I dined here with family, and the portions were sooo small, especially for middle eastern tastes. I would much rather dine at Raffi's Place up the street where you get way way more food of better quality for the same price. (That's why Raffi's is packed and Carousel had virtually every table EMPTY). Very disappointed diner!

It was like walking into a restaurant in the middle east and leaving LA/Glendale behind. Excellent food and service. Went back to this restaurant three days later with out of town company.

A real Lebanese dinner and night club. This is one of the few restaurants in town where you can get a real lebanese dinner and dancing girls that liven up the night scene. They also have a real live band that plays american as well as arabic music and a small floor for dancing. I really love this place and have been there three times already. I feel like I'm in Beirut …maybe at the Crazy Horse Saloon there. This is a place that's not to be missed. I could go here every week, it's that good. Excellent service, friendly atmosphere, clean air…bring on the dancing girls now.

Very authentic Middle-Eastern cuisine. Great for lunch. Chicken and filet mignon kebab are must haves! Love it!
