Houston Press' Description

This Armenian/Lebanese restaurant is a small, one-of-a-kind place run by an
elderly Armenian couple. Eating here makes you feel like you're a guest in their home -- everything is homemade and served with pride. Their hummus, mouhammara (red pepper spread) and falafel are excellent, and all of their kabobs -- lamb, chicken, kefta -- served hot off the grill, are scrumptious. At lunchtime, expect a wait.

    The lima beans in olive oil are fantastic!

  • Chris M. on 05/20/11

    The chicken shwarma and the tabouli is out of this world and George and Rita are like the welcoming Uncle and Aunt from the old country.
