These guys do a great job, hands down. We've been coming here for maybe 20 years? The food is home cooked and delicious, the service is amazing, and we will keep coming back. The cheese boraks are wonderful as are the dolmas. And of course the Eribuni Armenian beer. Oh, and the Napoleon or baklava.

My wife and I go here every month or two for dinner. Armenian food with a Armenian coffee afterwards. The lamb chops are really good.

Friendliest family to ever open a restaurant. They serve their customers the best food and treat you like royalty. Try the tarrigon soda!!

This is a family run restaurant that serves a very tasty food. The sandwiches and the plates are very good and the portions are right, maybe in the little pricey side (maybe because of the location), but ok. It seems like they are not trying to impress anybody with the place decoration, they just focus in the food and they... More

We took my 90 year old Aunt to dinner at this restaurant. She loves Armenian food, and this has been her favorite place to go to for a long time. I tried the lamb kabob, which they are known for, and it was delicious! Marinated and well seasoned, cooked to a perfect mid-rare. The entrees all come with a nice... More

My go to comfort food! Been going here for years and almost always order the Lamb Kabob Plate with half bulgar wheat and half Rice Pilaf. Also comes with a salad. My Dad loves the lamb shank, Mom loves the gyros sandwich. Marta's son John or his wife will be serving you with a smile or a joke, making you... More

You can't get more authentic Armenian food that at this restaurant. The owners do the cooking and the serving from grandma, mom-and-pop and son.

Excellent food offerings. Attentive service by this friendly, family owned restaurant. Not much ambience, but clean & comfortable. Consistently good.

We eat here at least once a week. The food is good. I usually have the chicken kebab special plate that comes with hummus, grape leaves and cheese borak. It always hits the spot. I have also had the dolma, which is also very good. The best part is the family who runs it. We always look forward to seeing... More
