The Top 6 Armenian Restaurants In Beirut

If you love Armenian food but don’t know where to find the best of it in Beirut, try one of these exquisite Armenian restaurants around the city.

1. Seza

Seza is one of our favourite Armenian restaurants in Lebanon and it also happens to be in an extremely cozy setting. Set up in an old house in Mar Mikhael, Seza offers its guests delicious authentic Armenian cuisine made with love. You must try their Mante as well as their eggs with sujuk – they are to die for.

2. Al Mayass

In the heart of Ashrafieh, Al Mayass has been serving traditional Armenian cuisine since 1996. You will keep coming back for the food, ambiance, hospitality, and service. The sweet Asmalliyeh for dessert is the perfect way to end your meal.

3. Mayrig

Mayrig, the mother of Batchig, is a charming restaurant nestled in Gemmayze serving some of the best Armenian dishes you will ever have! They recently started offering a platter with a variety of minis for people who are unfamiliar to the cuisine to discover and fall in love with the true Armenian style cooking. The maamoul stuffed with cheese and drizzled with aromatic syrup is not to be missed!

4. Batchig

The food at Batchig tastes like home. Order from their daily olive oil delights bar with various olive oil based dishes and share with your dining companions. Don’t skip the Mante and their Kebab Karaz in Laban with juicy cherries and fried bread. There’s also a SUPER delicious foot long sfiha filled with cheese and herbs – it’s really a must try. On Wednesday, Batchig offers a Mloukieh that you don’t want to miss. Batchig is a truly remarkable dining experience that everyone will enjoy. Don’t forget to check out its mama restaurant, Mayrig in Gemmayze, for a more intimate setting.

5. Badguer

This Armenian restaurant serves one of the most delicious Manti in the Lebanon. They even serve specialty Armenian wine. For dessert, order the Ain el Ghazel and Tahinov Hats. It’s good to note that on Thursdays, Badguer offers a set menu, so you can’t order a la carte.

6. Varouj

Varouj is a unique experience that everyone should try. The Armenian culinary specialties prepared behind that kitchen door are something out of this world. Frog legs are one of their specialties in the colder season.
