Sadly lacking in atmosphere with bright lights, tables spaced out very far from each other, and no music (other than the performance which lasted about 10 minutes). Service was very slow which normally wouldn't bother me very much but I was keen to leave! The food was poor with a lamb kebab that consisted almost completely of fat and grizzle.... More

I had dinner in Old Yerevan during my recent five day holiday in Armenia. The food was awful! My hot starter was cold on the inside and my fish kebab was actually chicken. The bread basket was older than I am. It gave the word stale a new meaning! The service was lack luster to say the least. The only... More

This food in here is awful. We had a large group booked in & I was asked to book in advance. The waiter pushed more & more food on our order. The quality of the food was poor... We had much better food during our stay elsewhere. Do not believe that this is 'traditional food' or you will be disappointed!... More

We arrived at the restaurant and were taken to the top floor. No one showed us a table so we seated ourselves. Even though the restaurant was almost empty we were asked to change tables because of a reservation. So far not a big problem. We were then handed one menu card (for the two of us) after we waited...

horrible service, terrible food, personnel smoking in kitchen... They sat the 2 of us down at a dirty table with 1 set of cutlery only, then they brought 1 menu. When I asked for another one, they made faces. We needed to stop more waiters to get us served. The dishes we ordered came in a non-sense order. Food was... More

Visited the karaoke and disco on the third level late at night. Was completely empty but we decided to stay anyway as there was a group of nine of us. When the time came to leave, we were told that there was a charge of 2,000 AMD per male and 500 per song sung at karaoke!! We had only requested... More
