“Best local fast food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2011

This is a best place to grab a wrap if you're in a hurry. Don't forget tan, which is a simple drink made of water and yogurt. The funny thing is that local word for yogurt is "matsun" but in Etchmiadzin we were told that "yogurt" is actually an Armenian word, which means "fat blessed" from "yough+ordnats". In any case, the wraps are really good. If you don't have time for a sit-down meal - always a better choice - get one at Tumanyan Shwarma.

“Fast food - Shawarma”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2010

This is a typical fast food restaurant with several types of Shawarma (döner in Turkish, gyros in Greek): Chicken, Beef, Pork and Lamb. They also make special liver kebab but i didn't try it. The wraps are delicious as expected. Try also Tan, which is local drink made from plain yogurt (like Turkish Ayran)
