Restaurant details
Reviewed May 28, 2012

This is really a little hole in the wall family operated armenian restaurant. We drive an hour to go there and they are so worth the drive. The food quantity, quality and price are unparalleled. The service could use a little help especially when they are busy but they make up for it by superb food. The quail is amazing. The price is so good you could try 2 main entree's instead of one. They dont have their own parking and it is sometimes difficult to find a spot but worth the effort. Don't forget to try the rice pudding....it's YUMMY!

You wouldn't expect much from this place when you see it, but this family owned reastaurant knows their stuff! I love their pork chop dinner with a side of their yummy lentil soup. I love this place, the famiy is so welcoming, and their service is great, feeks like you're in their house for dinner (i guess technically, you kind of are). But real nice atmosphere, delicious food, and really great prices!~

Not much on ambiance, bad parking, but if you get it to go, the lamb dishes are very good. There seems to be more Armenian food than Greek, but the lamb is what I go for.

In southern Glendale, in an unimposing small building with a floor that slants slightly (just pretend you're at sea), this restaurant serves generous, tasty portions of authentic Greek and Armenian cuisine at very reasonable cost. Service is variable, but usually adequate. Don't expect ambiance; this place may be a 'hole in the wall,' but is clean. On more than one occasion, I've had to take leftovers home (the establishment anticipates this, and provides help-yourself containers). If you leave hungry, it's your own fault. Restroom facilities are scanty (there's only one), but who goes to a restaurant for the restrooms (unless you're at the Madonna Inn in San Luis Obispo)?

The only thing that isn't great about this place is the parking. The food is great, the pickled veggies are great, the garlic sauce is great, and the food is out of site, right down to the roasted peppers on each plate of meat and rice. You've got to love the family feel with the table of locals in the corner drinking Armenian coffee and Ma' and Pa' taking orders, and serving up their plates of yummie food.
