In a Hamra street lined with many restaurants Onno boasts about its Lebanese and Armenian cuisine. Offering a daily dish and an extensive a la carte menu. We had raw kebbe, soujouk and itch with a glass of Arak. All were excellent and faithful to the original ONNO. This was followed by pomegranate in rosewater and a pistachio based sweet... More

The food here was absolutely incredible. Rich and full of flavor, everything just melted in my mouth. The wild cherry sauce was tart and well balanced, and the eggplant dish was cooked to perfection. Ambient lighting, so good for a chilled out night with friends or romantic dinner. The staff were very friendly and attentive.

If you want a tasty round of Armenian food, then Onno is the place to go. I'll be frank and admit this was my first time at Onno's but I was not disappointed! I had asked friends and family about the best Armenian food between a few handpicked joints and Onno was almost unanimously chosen, so I opted for trying... More

A modern twist of Armenian food with flavors that keeps your taste buds anticipating the next dish. Onno has two locations Badaro and Hamra. During my October 2016 stay I had the pleasure of dinning at Onno Hamra twice. I was with friends who were at Onno for the first time. Both parties were amazed at the quality of the... More

Very nice menu fusing lebanese and Armenian, I have been many times and will keep on coming. The menu yet has been fixed for some time and it needs some reviving. Staff is very friendly and helpful, service is professional and fast. Good job

We went to the original Onno in the Armenian district, on Aghabios Street in Bourj Hammoud. Out of the way location, under a bridge, but great food. (I think it's across from where GoogleMaps shows the Armenian Evangelical Church.) We especially loved the stuffed eggplant (made from dried eggplant and covered in yogurt sauce and sumac) and the tangy kebab... More
