The place is very good to have a fast and delicious food during the day. The Armenian Lahm b Ajin and the Shish barak are very delicious. I expected to have the food more chili

We found this hidden gem based on the recommendation of a friend. We tried the special meat dipped in pomegranate sauce. It sounds weird, but it was so good we ended up eating 4 pieces each. Try it with yogurt. The place is very traditional. It is run by a very nice but strict woman. So prepare your order beforehand... More

Read the reviews and saw a program about Beirut street food that featured the owner. The meat pizzas were certainly full of flavour. A must if you like Laham be Ajeen

There are no words to describe how good it tastes. You gotta wait for some time for the food to be ready because it's permanently under cooking... but you get the freshest and most tasty lahmbil3ajin ever :)

An excellant bakery for Armenian- Arabic food. Lahm B Ajiin which is similar to a pizza with minced meat is excellant. The berek and mante, the kibbe! and all. I always take away food from this place.

Ichkhanian Bakery recently opened a branch in Zalka which makes it easier for people living outside Beirut. It is not easy to find but if you follow the map you will get there. A modern eatery respecting the old traditions. The best Armenian lahm b3ajine to eat in or take away. They also serve manti. The beauty of the place... More

It's a famous bakery that has been providing some Armenian dishes for so many years. It's not a restaurant so you may take your orders away or have them delivered. The house specialty is the lahem bi 3ajine. You can have your lahem bi 3ajine the Armenian way which has spices, parsley and tomatoes in it, or the Lebanese way... More
