What is special about this restaurant is both the food and atmosphere. The restaurant is beautiful especially indoor. As for the food it is the best Armenian food U can get in town. Especially the Itch, Kafta with cherries, Manti, olive salad, and the assorted platter that offers potato, lentil and meat kibbeh.

The design of the restaurant is beautiful. We ordered a few appetizers such as hummus with meat and lentil kebba (which was so yummy). Our main dish was the kebab with cherry sauce (Armenian specialty). Our dessert was "Qashtalia" which is a typical Mediterranean dessert consisting of cream with nuts and syrup on the top. It's a bit pricey compared... More

I come here often with friends and work colleagues and we are never disappointed. Food is excellent, the restaurant is cozy and beautiful, and service is consistently good. Highly recommend the Kebbe selection, sou beureg and balata harra.

The restaurant is located in the heart of gemmayze in Beirut. The food is tasty and very clean. Waiters are very friendly and the atmosphere is wonderful. Very small portions comparing to the price , consider making them bigger otherwise everything was PERFECT!
