I heard about this Resturant from Snapchat blogger called About her she recommended this restaurant and always shared photos and videos for the food their which is totally different in life not only in appearance but also the taste. The appetizers was not that much...bad but not good also, the main course was not good at all from the appearance the chicken was burned and the meat kababs tasted bad I don’t recommend this restaurant at all in service nor food and not deserve the amount paid for the quality of the food.More

This was my first time at this for me yet unexplored location. At first, when I entered the entrance I felt rather compressed and unwelcoming. But as I progressed further in to the main hall of the eatery, I immediately recognized the warm surroundings everybody...mentioned. The space was at a comfortably high temperature which would have made fraternizing here incredibly easy. For everybody who has not yet explored this unfamiliar cuisine should really give it a try. My professional recommendation is to arrive with a need to cram down everything that is served to you. Bon Appétit!More

An absolutely typical and traditional Armenian restaurant with good service and utterly authentic food. The food here was far better than most of the restaurants I found when in Armenia recently, but it’s not fine dining hence I can’t give a fifth star, despite wanting...to. After all, how else does one truly differentiate from a top restaurant and one that is excellent?! The two dips to start, swerved with a crisp thin bread very good indeed and freshly made. The humous had chopped meat on top and was the smoothest I remember ever having. Every subsequent dish was excellent. The one traditional dish I would not recommend contains tiny birds. Ethics apart, they are about 3cm long and despite their pomegranate sauce, you can taste they were frozen. Everything else however was fabulous!More

We went to this restaurant for lunch since it was advertised as being Lebanese. Mezza was OK. Cheese sambousa with basterma had no cheese and a few bits of basterma ( I guess the cheese melted in to the oil while frying. Sambousa was also...made with sambousa leaves and not Lebanese sambousa dough. Re also had ras asfour which is normally small pieces of meat cooked with onions. It was spicy and without onions. We ordered kabab, chekaf meat and lamb chops. These should have been char grilled as in Lebanese restaurants, which makes them very tasty. However to our surprise, it seems that they were cooked on a skillet. They were also so spicy that we couldn't eat much. The kabab and the chops were dry as well. No one even came to ask how the food was while eating or when done. I have been going to Lebanese and Armenian restaurants for over 28 years and have never had meat cooked or spiced up in this way, as if I were in an Indian restaurant. Complained to the waiter and asked him to advise management. Neither did the waiter apologise nor did management even pass by. Service was good, but prices are exaggerated for the quantity of meat in an order. My advise is not to go there.More

We were intrigued by the circular design of this restaurant and from the outside, you could not read it's name well or know what type of cuisine is served, so we went in to ask and they said it was Armenian food. The restaurant was...packed with people so we thought that the food must be good. The dishes are ridiculously overpriced for their quality and fhe main dishes are expensive yet the quantity you get is not enough for an adult portion. There were plenty of waiters but service was slow and we called for a waiter to come but he was too busy socializing with a fellow waiter. The on the house apptizer was dry bread with no type of dip. The average cost for 3 peices of kebab is 100 SAR so save your money and eat elsewhere as it is not worth going to a restaurant with a very limited selection of main dishesMore
