Conveniently located in Old Town Pasadena. Parking is difficult but far from impossible. The seared ahi and the beef kabobs are both excellent. Service is friendly and knowledgeable.

Armenian owned and genuine food. Everything tastes authentic and is cooked with the passion it deserves. The bartender takes his job seriously and wait staff are practically owners. I strongly recommend sitting on the balcony. You simply MUST try the lamb!!!!!

Great food, great service, cool atmosphere! The lamb souflaki was really good! Rooftop view of the Old Pasadena Square is a delightful highlight for this quaint Greek restaurant. Worth the trip, but get there early because it gets crowded around 7:30.

Not only this is one of the classic dinner in old town Pasadena, most customers are classy as well so dressing up is never going to overly dressed! Ask for the "three tentacles" dish. It is the best one I have ever had. Also, valet...More
