Description: The receptionist at our hotel reccommended this place. We were looking for a typical Armenian restaurant. The Afrikyanneri Pandok met our expectations. This is a cellar restaurant just of Sacharov Square. We had excellent Armenian food for a very decent price and there was live music to accompany it. The only reason I would not give it 5 stars is that the service was very slow.

“Nice restaurant, with tasty food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2014

Ate here tonight, fairly late (arrived at 9.30 pm or so). Restaurant was fairly empty and they were happy to accommodate me as a solo diner.

No one seemed to speak any English, but I eat pretty much anything so I didn't mind too much. The menu had English translations, but things are named rather than described (e.g. "evening salad" or "So and so's favourite lamb dish".

Food was very tasty, although a little bit of a random combination as a result of the language issues.

I had 'evening salad', which was a pork in mayonaise cold dish (as a starter, probably enough for 3 people along with the breads!), which they brought out with some roasted peppers and aubergine swimming in oil (I think I ordered grilled vegetables of some sort).

Main for me was 'King BBQ', which turned out to be some rather tasty barbecue pork ribs, which made me very happy. This was served with a really tasty sauce (kind of sweet, sour) a giant baked potato and was a good hearty portion.

No live music tonight, but on occasion they seemed to turn up the music (Shakira) rather loud.

Eventhough they didn't speak English, the staff were very pleasant and friendly. Bill came up to just over AMD8,000, which reasonable for the amount of food and quality.

Overall I enjoyed it and would happily go back again.

“Typical Armenian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

If you want to get the true spirit of Armenian cuisine, that's the right place to dine.
I would pay special attention to the menu - adorable names of dishes which make one smile.
The only thing I don't like personally is the lack of windows - most of the halls in taverns of both location lack windows and are dark...
While the dishes are very tasty if you order through the menu, business lunches still need improvement - sometimes there is long line in front of the desk, and there is no big diversity of choice.
The biggest advantage is that they serve typical Armenian food which is really attractive not only for guests of Armenian but also for natives (sometimes one may discover very interesting food which can't be tasted anywhere else).

“Lovely national environment, tasty food, excellent national song and dance performance”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

If you want to dine in an Armenian national environment, taste national cuisine, and enjoy national song and dance, you might want to visit this place. I have been here many times, and always enjoyed it. Slightly overpriced perhaps, but unless you dine here twice a day, it will not show too much on your budget. Plus, it's never too "packed up", so quiet can also be added to its advantages.
