Sayat Nova may be a little off the beaten path and unfortunately right now a bit hidden by construction but I promise you this, if you take the time to eat there once, you'll never stop going back. The atmosphere is friendly and welcoming and their staff is nothing less than excellent, very eager to please and very considerate and attentive. The Hummus is OUT OF THIS WORLD! I haven't had any better in the city, and their kabobs are also a delight. We love the number 8 and 9 (sauteed chicken and sauteed lamb) and the chicken/spinach special is another treat (and a half!) Try the Armenian coffee, it is sure to give you a jolt and they have alcohol as well. Take it from a local, this place is tops!!!

Absolutely delicious! As everyone else says, the restaurant is pretty pricey (dinner entrees for $14.95 and up), but the food is amazing and portions are huge. Plus, the dinner comes with a buffet of appetizers where you serve yourself. When I went, that included hummus, falafel, tomate soup, chicken barley soup (my favorite!), tabouleh, and maybe one other item. If you're on a budget, come over there for lunch instead. The buffet is $9.95 per person. Whenever you do go, I would recommend any of their chicken entrees with dill rice. If you go for dinner but can't afford the entrees, try the all-you-can-eat appetizer buffet for $9.95.
I often dine at Reza's Andersonville location. My favorite is their Reza's Special Boneless Chicken. I get it with their dill rice which is always perfectly prepared. It's fluffy rice with dill and a few lima beans added. If you have room after hving their generous portions, their carrot cake is wonderful.
