Best restaurants in Glendale?

Looking for moderately priced restaurants with good food in Glendale. I'd love to try Bashan but it's too pricey for what I'm looking for.

  1. Shamshiri in Glendale is great for Persian, and I find the kabobs and rice dishes executed here better than the Westwood location (except for the freshly baked in-house bread in Westwood)

    1. Drive up to DISH in La Canada if the menu appeals to you

      1. Haven't been in a whle, but Carousel on the busy area of Brand Blvd is decent for Middle Eastern/Lebanese.

        Would second the Shamshiri rec. Don't remember it as having the greatest location/decor, but the food was always good.

        Went to Damon's steakhouse once. Corny Hawaiianish decor. IIRC, 1/2 of my large group was OK w/ the place, the others weren't impressed. I thought my steak was decently done.

        1. Is Cinnabar still there near the auto dealers on Brand? Used to be fairly well-received by Zagat back in the day.

            Cinnebar's been closed for a couple of years now. I miss those retro cocktails!

          2. what price range are you holding to?
