Stopped in for dinner after seeing really good reviews and our experience lived up to the reviews. We sat in the bar area because we wanted more quiet seating. Service was attentive and helpful with our questions. Large wine selections from Lebanon and Albania but we were hesitant to try them so we chose a French red that was amazing... More

I actually couldn’t wait to review Almayass. It was some of the most delicious food I’ve had in my whole life. Think that’s a bold statement? Maybe. But it’s also true. It was THAT good. I felt I had died and gone to food heaven. They serve you pita bread and pita crisps with a minty, parsley-spiced olive oil on... More

This is a great Lebanese fine dining restaurant. It's particularly tasty for vegetarians even though it doesn't advertise itself that way. The dolma and cauliflower hummus are great.

My wife and I love Mediterranean food and we're anxious to try this restaurant. We ordered the Mixed Grill for two with Tazeki on the side. The rice and Tazeki made for a spectacular combination. The meat was overcooked and we found not to be a generous portion, more like for one than two. If we went again we would... More

Huge selection of vegetarian options and the food is amazing. The variety is tremendous and the mixture of Armenian and Lebanese cuisines is a awesome. The wine selection, especially some of the Lebanese options are worth trying. Great staff, service and the desserts are to die for!

Authentic Lebanese, Armenian restaurant. Especially the starters were extremely tasty. Friendly staff and good service. Only minus for us was that after we "finished" a table full of starters the entree came within one minute, despite the fact that we had told them to wait a bit.

Tucked away off Park Street South is this beautiful Lebanese restaurant based on Armenian ingredients. This is my favourite food so I had high expectations. I was not disappointed! We ordered the Chef's selection for 4. The food kept on coming and coming-true Lebanese style-and it was excellent quality. A unique restaurant; you felt everything was so fresh. The service...

Arrived late afternoon/early evening. Restaurant almost empty. We were a party of three without reservations. They told us how long we could stay and were slightly rude as they were booked. We should have left. The food and service were excellent. The hostess should find another line of work. Maybe the owners will mystery shop and find out on his/her... More

Most delicious food - great Armenian- Lebanese cuisine. A true adventure for every foodie. The restaurant is usually packed and pretty loud therefore I do NOT recommend it for business dinners with more than 3-4 people. I tried and it was impossible to hear each other.
