I listened to the Tripadvisor reviews and decided to go and wow what an amazing experience ! the food is absolutely delicious, so clean and fresh ingredients, everything bursting with flavor, this place is so unique. I usually never eat raw meat in other restaurants because I find the meat often has an odd smell, but here wow the meat... More

We walked in walking past the day before valentines. Luckily restaurant was empty that time so managed to get a table. Plenty of food choices but very little for vegetarians. Food is good but quite expensive. Interior is great.

One of the best Armenian restaurants in Beirut, always a good experience, always tasty food. Make sure to leave some room for dessert! Not to be missed

This was our first visit to an Armenian restaurant and we were not disappointed! From the time we were seated until we left, the servers were attentive and responsive. We ordered several dishes to share including the itch salad, mouhammara, selection mayrig, and finished the meal with dessert of kaymakleh and achtalieh. Highly recommend putting Mayrig on the top of... More

Arrogant management. We ordered sweets and the manager kept on showing us signs of being upset that we were only ordering sweets. This is not the first time they show arrogance and this does not give a good atmosphere. This will be the last time for me for sure.

We were a group of 3 and ordered several dishes to share. There wasn't a single dish that we didn't enjoy. The Armenian sausage dishes were my personal favorite (sujuk and makanek). I would recommend anything on their menu.

We had lunch in this cozy restaurant during our stay in Beirut. The staff was very friendly and attentive and the restaurant very clean and well decorated. We ordered some dolma, lentils salad, stuffed eggplants in tomato sauce, beef tartines with quail eggs and a apricot pudding as dessert. The food was very good, with that authentic Armenian twist.

Dinner outdoors on the patio on a warm Beirut evening. Excellent regional food with good service and atmosphere. First time we had eaten at an armenian restuarant and we were not disappointed.
