  • The spark for Lavaash by Saby was provided by stories about Armenian families in Asansol in a history of the modern coal industry in India penned by his father, an anthropologist-turned-town planner
  • If the simple beauty of the upholstery on the chairs interests you, remember it’s hand-embroidered kanthawork from West Bengal. The principal design elements are images of parrots, pomegranates and peacocks
  • The restaurant has the city’s most romantic verandah with the sprawling neem tree in the central courtyard peeping into it. And its terrace commands an inspiring view of the Qutub

Sourish Speaks


THROUGHOUT their checkered history, bloodied by the atrocities committed on them, Armenians have found refuge in India. Today, about 150 Armenians are living in Kolkata and the Armenian College there draws students from this Orthodox Christian community across the world. Not much was known, though, about the community that settled in Asansol, West Bengal, to develop the vibrant district town’s iron and steel industry, till Sabyasachi Gorai, a talented young chef previously with AD Singh, opened Lavaash by Saby at the picture-postcard-pretty restored heritage building Ambavatta One in Mehrauli. The Armenians gave the world lavash, the soft and thin unleavened flatbread; they created the tonir, an underground clay oven that metamorphosed into the tandoor; and their cabbage or grapevine-wrapped tolma, dumplings (manti) served with sour cream, and khoravat (grilled meats) now have a worldwide following. The flamboyant chef has dipped into this culinary tradition at Lavaash by Saby, his 150-seater restaurant set to open in phases. It has several positives working in its favour, not the least of which are the banana flower (mocha) puffs, onion tolma bulging with mustard-spiked prawns, the pizza-like pide (another Armenian speciality) topped up with molten cheese and runny egg, and manti served out of an earthenware steamer designed especially for the dumplings. Lavaash by Saby has potential.

Beautiful ambience and great food!
This has become my new favorite place in town . The service is brilliant, food is amazing and the music is just the perfect volume for conversation. The hummus is the best I've had in Delhi and it pairs perfectly with lavash bread. I'd highly recommend the lamb kebabs too. The cherry on the top (quite literally) is their cherry glazed cheesecake. I could just go back for dessert!

Nice and Cozy.
We went for a lunch on a sunny afternoon to Lavaash by Saby. It is a cute little place with very pretty interiors. Its one of those 'feel good' kind of a place. We ordered sizzling vegetables and potato dolma for the appetisers. Sizzling vegetables were very nice- not too spicy or bland with just enough sauce and the potatoes were also very well cooked. But we did not like the potatoes that much because they have a very peculiar taste of mustard oil which is not for everyone's taste buds. Then we ordered chicken skewer from the sharing plates; the chicken was tender with good flavour. For dessert we had the old monk mousse; it was a bit thick as compared to the usual texture of the mousse but tasted really good. Elveyn- the drink that we ordered was the showstopper; it was tangy and fresh. Really recommend this place.

The place - amazing ! Decor, lighting the candle light sitting was perfect ! The service - courteous and fast . And the food - well I liked it no doubt , but didn't get a feel that it's radically different . But no doubt an amazing place for a date or any special moment . Come here and you'll fall in love .

A quaint restaurant in the middle of the ruins
The restaurant is very pretty which means I loved the Ambiance. It's interesting how they have created an Armenian Bengali menu and have managed to do it well. The kebabs were the show stealer. The staff is really polite and of course we chomped off on all The Lavaash. I liked the food. Wasn't too impressed with the mocktails and mutton risaala. Overall a good place for a cozy lunch or dinner.
