This restaurant is hard to spot despite the board outside as you have to go downstairs to it. The restaurant is furnished nicely. We are vegetarians so we appreciated the veggie menu. The manager was extremely friendly. The food was served quickly and was very tasty although it could have been hotter. Will come again.

The place Arto der Haroutunian created is simply a joy. Great food, art and service right in the city centre. The meze is breathtaking - and, like the dish, one faints!

It's been over two years since we last visited here and the restaurant has been completely renovated since then and now has a light and airy feel to it. What hasn't changed was the warm welcome and rather good food. We started with the meat sharing platter, really nice but nearly a meal on its own. Our mains were also... More

The Armenian taverna is a hidden restaurant in central Manchester, on Albert square, which is definitely worth exploring! The restaurant itself has recently undergone refurbishment, updating the decor to a more modern Armenian feel. It still is effective in transporting you away from central Manchester for your meal! Both of the times I have visited we have elected to eat... More

After a full interior reconstruction and design change, this place is more welcoming and lively. Feels more like you are a guest visiting a family rather than a client going to a restaurant.

Since opening in 1968, we have been inviting you to experience our hospitality and wonderful cuisine. We have been serving the same great food for over four decades. Armenia has a very rich culinary culture, with influences from neighbouring nations. Walking down the steps takes you back in time, which is pleasant amongst the bright shop fronts of Albert Square. The ambiance is superb with the warmest use of colour and artefacts. Our home made mezze starters will get your taste buds tingling whilst mains include traditional charcoaled grilled meat`s. Family run since opening shows the passion of the Armenian Tavern with grandma’s recipes and tastes that have been handed down for generations.
