Long wait, worth it

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

Good food, reasonable prices, good service. This place was packed and we had a long wait, but enjoyed the experience. Atmosphere is okay, but for ethnic food it was appropriate.

For only 200 pesos we ate 3 dishes and shared a bottle of delicious wine. Make sure you get there before opening time to line up - this place is busy with both tourists and locals.
