Most entries are prepared at table side on an open flame. Ethnic Armenian food presented in a fantastic relaxing atmosphere. A nice way to divide the restaurant premises into private "cabinets" (without doors anyhow). Very peaceful, nice dining.

I loved the little hint of smoke (barbeque taste) in the dishes - as mentioned, the majority of the dishes are prepared on an open fire.

Favorite Dish: Some Armenian beef dish, wrapped in thin bread, contained some red sauce. Just super delicious!!!

If you like sweet things, try with your coffee as dessert the Armenian cake called baklava.
