Came here with my partner as we were interested in trying out Armenian food-and to find one in Sussex was great for us. The restaurant was almost empty when we arrived, the waitress we found to be friendly. As I cannot access the menu I'll have to try and describe what we had. I ordered a special which was a... More

Trip advisor shows the map as being marine parade in Hastings, but its in St Leonards Marine Parade. The food is authentic home style Armenian cuisine and the menu has a good choice of dishes. The surroundings are comfortable and relaxing and the owners very welcoming. If you are tired of unhealthy, brown, fried and gloopy food restaurants pass off... More

It's family run, and there's plenty of evidence of family members all over the place; a couple of their kids were tucking into their dinner when we arrived. It's a little bit like... More

One of the most original and cheapest true restaurants we have found! Armenian food, Lithuanian staff and a completely original night out! The wine and the food hail from the Balkans and Armenia and are the sort of thing you used to find on holiday in Greece in the 'good old days'. There is a proper restaurant, or you can... More
