What typical restaurants, food delivery services, and/or takeout options are popular among expatriates?
Menu.am is a great delivery service that has food to you in under an hour, sometimes less, for less than 1 USD in delivery charges. They offer delivery from most restaurants and some other businesses. You can use either the website or their phone app to order - Mar 27, 2017
KFC. Many restaurants, serving mostly Armenian, Georgian and Syrian/Lebanese food. Prices are very reasonable - we often have reverse sticker shock. If you spend $25,000AMD for three people, including some wine - it is on the expensive side. International cuisine is also available - but it is more expensive and in my opinion is not as good as local cuisine. On the whole though, food is fresh, made from scratch (including french fries!) and delicious. - Oct 15, 2014
Not a lot of fast food options here. There is a KFC and Pizza Hut, I've heard they're pretty good. There's no McDonald's here, the closest is in Tbilisi. You can find pizza in just about any restaurant. Dining out is cheap, you won't spend more than $10 per person. Some really delicious Armenian restaurants that serve great kabob, shashlik, and dolma. - Sep 19, 2011
No U.S. fast food franchises, but plenty of excellent restaurants. Most restaurants are quite affordable, though there are a few high-end establishments. - Oct 14, 2009
There is little to no Western-style fast food in Yerevan. The only game in town in fast food is chicken, with Southern Fried Chicken and the newly opened Rostoks (Russian KFC) on the market. If you want McDonalds, it is a 5 hour trip to Tbilisi. There are generally a couple of decent places to eat within the major ethnic culinary areas. Chinese places are very much hit or miss (and open and close) but we enjoy Beijing. There are more decent options available in Italian food--with Ankuhl, The Club (good pizza), and La Cucina at the Marriott among others solid selections. A sushi place opened recently near the Opera. Expect to pay U.S. prices for a decent meal--usually $15-30 per. The restaurant scene has improved dramatically over the last several years. - Jul 26, 2008
KFC just arrived but there are lots of decent restuarants including a burger joint (City Diner) right out of middle America with the best burgers and fries you've ever had! Otherwise there are restaurants of a wide variety of cuisines - many very good, some high end (pricey)... you will never starve in Yerevan! - Jan 9, 2008
