The outside wasn't all that inviting and unless I had my Verizon rewards coupon to burn we may not have gone in but we're glad we did. The interior is small with basic ethnic Armenian-Georgian accents with a Russian program playing on TV for extra atmosphere.
The menu featured all kinds of kabobs with some very interesting appetizers. We tried the avocado salad which was great; it had tomatoes, onion, cilantro with lemon juice to give it a ceviche-like flavor. The one soup we tried was Shurpa, a broth based soup with lab and chick peas, which was satisfying but simple in flavor. They say most of the other soups are more stew-like and we will look forward to trying them.
I had the lamb kebab while the wife had the chicken. For both the meat flavor was outstanding. The waitress (also the owner) let us substitute fried potatoes instead of rice which I appreciated and found was worth it. Sides were a lightly marinated sliced onions and sautéed mushrooms which my wife substituted.
Service was at first just ok as the owner dealt with the other tables by herself. later she spent time with us and we talked a lot about the different dishes and the restaurant, Armenia and the immigrant experience that brought her to America. It made the experience complete and we plan to return for sure.
