Food with a twist

Cash only. This place is a must visit. Great food with a bit of an East Indian flare. Large portions and scrumptious desserts. Bustling lineups but worth the wait.

Live when Armen does his international meals. He is a genius at using slices so it is a given that the food will be perfect.

I went to Armen's for Indian dinner last night and was blown away. His use of spices is out of this world. The colors and flavor are unmatched in this town. Definitely one of the only restaurants in the area that actually makes their food from scratch and with passion. If you are looking for a place to eat in... More

An amazing dinner at Armen's tonight with my lovely wife. We enjoyed the butter chicken and butter paneer - both were excellent. Appetizers were tasty and the colors were remarkable - the pictures don't do it justice. Armen never ceases to amaze! On again Saturday night and a new meal next weekend - looking forward to the culinary adventure! Thanks... More

Great Cambodian roast beef sandwich with an amazing chilli side and chick pea salad side. There's no way you'll finish your huge portion so plenty of value. They have no debit machine so cash is king. They let us eat, fill our belly's with goodness then found we found a bank machine and paid later. Small town friendliness with a... More

Charming staff, delicious food. We enjoyed the curried chicken, bean taco, spicy sausage and ham sandwich, veggie quesadilla, blueberry farmers pie! Very filling, wholesome food.

While visiting Southampton, our friend who lives there said Armen's was the very best place for lunch, so away we went. The restaurant is utterly unpretentious in appearance and spirit. The chalkboard menu consists of sandwiches, quesadilas and various specials of the day. We stood in line for about 5 minutes and placed our order (cash only). We all ordered... More
