“Pleasant and surprising”
Reviewed April 11, 2014

Having eaten my fair share of Armenian food, this place certainly presented a fun and innovative approach to presentation and flavouring. We sat outside which was pleasant and it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. There were so many interesting sounding things on the menu that we really ordered quite a few things and got through it all, still curious to try some of the other things we didn't order! Ingredients tasted very fresh and tasty. Having been to Mayrig, this was a pleasant surprise. Mayrig is very good, but pricier, more formal, and slightly heavier food. Batchig is a more fun, light hearted, and casual counterpart. The service is good and the setting is comfortable. Quite an accessible way to try modernised versions of Armenian food, so give it a go!

“Where food takes us to another land!”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

Lovely setting, beautiful dishes, bright colors, everything was attractive and encouraging to have a special culinary experience. The menu says that Batchig is "where food takes us to another land", I have to say they did! We had a variety of traditional dishes that were very good. Their desserts come in huge size and taste as good as the other specialties.

“Second visit, much changed, but better in every way”
Reviewed March 2, 2014 via mobile

We were here last summer with a 30 people group. That was our first visit. We were amazed at the wide variety of completely different menu ! And we thought we knew Armenian food!
Anyway, here on our second visit, the menu has improved to include more subtle food, while the signature dishes ( like Manti) remain excellent.
The service remains excellent, while the ambiance, free wifi, valet, and general calm music is all that we needed for a relaxing dinner.

“Simply amazing”
Reviewed January 25, 2014

Being a Mayrig fan, i was eager to try their new restaurant Batchig, and i must admit, i was not disappointed one bit.

My mayrig favorites (beureg, mante... ) are on the batchig menu, in addition to some new delicious items (fish kebbe, eggplant salad, the yummy desert tahinov hatz and a whole lot more)

There's an indoor oven that ads to the selection of the menu and gives more warmth to atmosphere of the restaurant, and there's a marvelous outdoor terrace that is very enjoyable when the weather permits.
