Meat quality is very bad, which makes the ras asfour plate very profitable...fattouch very oily, hummus tastes weird, and very expensive for such a bad quality...first and last time.

Friendly service, quite an extensive menu. Simple, tasty food. There's even a resident troubadour who comes and sings you a song at your table (your choice of Armenian or Arabic). Best stuffed eggplants I had anywhere in Lebanon, incidentally, and try the 'candy floss' dessert for a real treat.

What can you ask for more than great food, great mood and wonderful live oud music? This place has it all. The food, although the plates have rather small quantities, is really good and average in price. You get to taste original Armenian food but you can also choose from traditional Lebanese dishes, so all tastes can be satisfied. The... More

High quality food and service along with acceptable prices that are second to none in the Lebanon. Al-Mayas has a unique dining atmosphere in the Capital city of Beirut. Very cozy and helpful service. The menu should be tried entirely. They have the best Manti out of Armenia.

Mayas is and will always be my favorite Armenian food place to be. Located in the heart of the city in a very rustic road/neighborhood. The venue is nicely decorated and you feel the warmth of the restaurant through its staff. very professional staff and alert. The food is mouth watering and generous. I recommend the mante and soubereg! Perfect... More
