Review by Jean

Located in a warm and very carefully decorated old house, with stones and wooden ceilings, four rooms separated by arcades, Caucasian carpets on the floor, Mayrig restaurant is a very authentic and charming place.

The menu offers a large variety of mouthwatering Armenian dishes. The items’ names are in Armenian with a thorough explanation of the ingredients. In case you’re still hesitant, waiters are here to explain. Service in general is professional and courteous.

We ordered hommos soujok, moutabbal, zeitov dolma (stuffed vegetables), Mayrig selection (rough meat kebbe, lentils kebbe and potatoes kebbe), Itch salad (the Armenian version of tabbouleh), gozou patates (Armenian batata 7arra), soujok fekhara, lahme bajeen, beureg soujok and kebab with cherries. Dishes were nicely presented. Everything was excellent but for me the itch and zitov dolma were to die for. I was a little disappointed however by the soujok fekhara that was good but not excellent as the other plates. The new delicious tastes and spices made everything vanish from the table.

The restaurant is usually full, adding life to the place without making it too noisy.

I definitely recommend Mayrig for the divine food, the cozy ambiance and the professional service.

    It is an overpriced restaurant for a humble food, rare traces of meat, no fruits, no quality. For such a poor quality, one should pay almost half the quoted price. Certainly I won't go there again.

      Definitively Sol is right. First of all the stuff are rude, we entered at 18h30 they directly said that the restaurant is full reserved at 20h30, they brought the menus and the waiter started telling us what to order (to eat fast and leave fast before 20h30).
      The dishes came with small portions, I mean when you ask for sujuk and you pay 10$, I think the plate must contain more than 4-5 pieces!! The prices are so exaggerated for example if your order hummus it's for 5$ (also mini portion) and if you order it with pine nut on top it will be 8$!!!
      The food is not really Armenian, i've tried many Armenian restaurants and I can tell that their mante is horrible (even the yogurt came with a microscopic cup). In conclusion this restaurant is overrated, expensive for nothing and not recommended.

    I went two times to Mayrig and I really enjoyed my diner there.
    The food was very good and the staff was helpful and professional.
    I highly recommend it.
