Best Falafel!

As I am from Turkey, I am very familiar with Middleeastern food and mezes, because we have a lot of dishes in common. Without any reservation I can say that the food in this restaurant is amazing! The falafel was the best I have ever eaten. Tabule is very nice, too. For 2 people we ordered tabule... read more

A crowd was lined up to get in before the restaurant even opened. We had attentive service and delicious food faster than we had a right to expect. We ordered a variety of food, most of which were perfect for the vegetarian in our party. However the chick brochette was perfect for me. Overall, I would highly recommend this wonderful... More

I go there at least 3 times a year (I live in Buenos Aires) and enjoy it every time! We allways order around 4 dishes of the cold part of the menu, like tabuleh, raw keppe, olives, and some others: all delicious. Very good quality-price relation. The restaurant opens at 8 pm but if you do not want to wait... More

We needed to wait over 30minutes to get a table (22:00). It was worth it, we had: humus and ensalate as a starter and kofta with the brilliant waiter-recommended mosaya. Absolutely great food:)

My first time eating Armenian food and I loved it! The dessert was the best part. The price is great but the wait was ridiculous! 2 hours in line! Definitely represents how good the food is!

I went here with friends for dinner, and to my surprise the menu had all the Middle Eastern food I grew up eating with my family. I am not familiar with Armenian food, but this restaurant definitely had almost every type of Middle Eastern food you could imagine. My friends, who were not familiar with Middle Easter cuisine, asked me... More

This restaurant was absolutely incredible. It looks somewhat simple, but every single plate that we ordered was fantastic. It's also very great value. True mediterranean taste, definitely recommend it!!

This is a must go to place if you like your Middle Eastern food. All the food is fresh and tastes great. Be aware that there is a massive queue always so if you can book in advance we would recommend it. Would love to go back one day, keep up the good work Sarkis.

I went for lunch with friends and this is truly one of the best Mediterranean meals that I have ever had. This is a family restaurant that was packed and apparently they are always full and don't accept reservations. The baba ganoush and dolmathes were AMAZING, as well as the hummus with warm pitta bread. We also ordered the lamb... More

It's an interesting concept - and possibly rather hubristic- to make your customers turn up and wait on the pavement before you open - and then endure the scramble and uncertainty of whether hey will get a table or not. As we were entertaining my daughter +friends it was important that we got in and this was the place she... More
