Good food at reasonable prices to fit anyone's quirks. The Greek Salad was fresh and ample and the Yuvetsi was special and different. They had the usual souvlaki and moussaka, which looked spectacular. The service was excellent.

Conveniently located in Old Town Pasadena. Parking is difficult but far from impossible. The seared ahi and the beef kabobs are both excellent. Service is friendly and knowledgeable.

Armenian owned and genuine food. Everything tastes authentic and is cooked with the passion it deserves. The bartender takes his job seriously and wait staff are practically owners. I strongly recommend sitting on the balcony. You simply MUST try the lamb!!!!!
