Natalie's Armenian Kitchen Pop Up

Why Join the Table?

8 course feasting menu of Armenian and Persian cuisine + BYOB!

Natalie's Armenian Kitchen is a place where people come together to share and savour the aromatic flavours of an ancient cuisine full of tradition.

All the recipes have been passed down from my Grandmother, who was brought up in an Armenian village in Iran, and learnt on my travels through Armenia where food is such an integral part of life. I also like to interpret traditional recipes and give it my own more modern twist.

The emphasis is on sharing and trying lots of new and interesting flavours and meeting some great people at the table. I also love to tell the stories behind the recipes and hopefully give my guests a better understanding of this beautiful rich culture and it's food.

Come joi...

A lovely evening with great guests at the table. Enjoyed the spread of food and grateful for the substitutions made for my allergies.

Super evening. Absolutely fantastic food. Lovely host.

Very enjoyable evening

Dear Natalie, Thank you so much for a lovelyevening. The ambience and group of people you had last night was just perfect but more than anything it's you that makes the supper club what it is. You are so engaging and we could really feel your love and passion for your food. It shines through. You will be incredibly successful. Please keep it going. I'm sure our paths will cross again one day. Mark and May

Fun evening with great food in beautiful atmosphere. Reminded me of fun evenings with friends in Yerevan.

Simply delicious (Dolma was my favourite!!!) Had a smashing time and will definitely be back!

Certainly the best and most exciting food we’ve had since being in Armenia ourselves many months before. Thanks to Natalie and friend for giving us insights into Armenian culture.

Amazing food experience! Tolma was as good as my grandmum's! Interesting fusion from the crossroads of Armenia and Persia... I'll be back hopefully!

A great evening with wonderful food

Thank you for hosting a great night, Natalie!

It was a really nice experience. Service was really good, good timing between dishes. The evening has flown smoothly. We have met very interesting and diverse people.

Absolutely delicious food, lovely welcoming host and a fantastic evening all round.

We absolutely loved it. The food was delicious. We met some great people and had really interesting conversation. All the food was incredible, but I particularly loved the cake....incredible!

Loved it. Wonderful host, amazing food, from recipe's passed down through the generations.

What a lovely evening! What a lovely lady! And what delicious food!! A constant supply of tasty, authentic dishes that featured Irani rice, an Armenian family heirloom curry - and so much more - barberries, walnuts, pomegranate molasses and pickles. Along with fresh salad (yum yum) and caaake! What more could you want? Well, actually - good company. And that was there too. Brilliant!! Thank you to all xxxxx

We had a wonderful time with Natalie and her guests. She took so much time and care in the preparation of food, and to lay out a beautiful table setting complete with candles which created a lovely ambiance in the room and gave the room a lovely glow. We loved the home cooked feel to the dishes. We would have no problems recommending Natalie to other diners.

I had never tried Armenian food before and it was certainly a treat. It was lovely to try a few different dishes and they were all very tasty. Nice relaxed ambiance too.

This was my first supper club so wasn't really sure what to expect. Also my first time tasting Armenian food and what a treat! Took my sister along (very belated Xmas pressie) and Natalie's food and hospitality didn't disappoint. She and her friend were lovely hosts and the group soon warmed up once the lovely, tasty food started being passed around. The desert was incredible! My sister and I agreed we would definitely come to dine at Natalie's again.

As soon as we walked into Natalie's flat we knew we were in for a treat. The table looked magical with an ethnic table cloth and twinkling tea lights in pretty glasses. Everything was beautiful presented, the flavours were different and the conversation flowed. My absolute favourite dish was the walnut cake we had for dessert with cloves, cinnamon and a syrup. Nalatie was very attentive.

Food was not enough at all. Food was mainly Persian not Armenian. A bit of a rip off.

Response from our Host

I'm sorry the food wasn't enough, usually there is too much! The reason for the Persian dishes is because my Armenian mother was brought up in Iran therefore her food has been influenced by the cuisine there (which I happen to think is rather tasty too!) but it is till part of Armenian tradition and cooking styles in that region. In fact Armenian cuisine is by nature an interesting melting pot due to the large diasporas throughout the middle-east and west. I am happy to share more information with you about Armenian cuisine and share any recipes with you. Thu, 23 Feb 2017

Such a nice evening meeting new people and enjoying a wide variety of delicious food from Armenian and Iran. We were made to feel at ease from the start, we would highly recommend an evening with Natalie's Armenian Kitchen.

Very nice ambiance, very cozy. Food was lovely and explained by Natalie. Kerim x

Delicious food, very welcoming and interesting host with a passion for the food and culture, cozy atmosphere. Definitely recommend!

Really tasty home-cooked food and atmosphere. Natalie couldn't have been nicer, and I've been craving the rice and eggplant ever since!

Response from our Host

Glad you enjoyed Paige and if you need any recipes just drop me a line! Tue, 15 Nov 2016

Lovely evening. Natalie was a terrific host and the good was delicious.

Response from our Host

Thanks so much Kelly! Tue, 15 Nov 2016

This was my first ever supper club experience and I was not disappointed. Natalie was welcoming throughout the evening and she gave several insights into the food being served and also tips on where she bought her speciality ingredients. The food was superb, tasty and portions were generous. I liked the format too as we had time to chat to Natalie and the other guests before sitting down for dinner.

Response from our Host

Thanks so much Fezra and wish we had a chance to chat some more! Hope to see you again at another event. Tue, 15 Nov 2016

Lovely atmosphere and great food!! Really enjoyed our night...first experience of Armenian food and definitely want more! 😊

Response from our Host

Thanks so much guys! Would love to see you again at future events :) Sat, 12 Nov 2016

Amazing food - lovely host

I really enjoyed the opportunity to try Armenian food. The aubergine soaked in pomegranate juice was the highlight for me. The flat was cosy with a great ambience.

.

Lovely host. Great authentic food!

A++ Would recommend!

A feast of fabulous food. Thank you!

Great food, lovely hostess) I highly recommand

Delicious selection of dishes, and a friendly but discreet host. Highly recommended.

The food was really delicious and Natalie was a wonderful host. I really enjoyed the supper club setup where we got to speak to well-travelled interesting people.

Amazing food and amazing company. Overall perfect evening. Highly recommended.

We had an absolutely wonderful evening at Natalie's flat making new friends and eating her delicious Armenian cuisine. Everything was made with such love and care we couldn't fault it. Very highly recommended!

We had a really enjoyable evening. Lovely food and good company.

What a wonderful evening. Natalie is a fantastic host who makes you feel so comfortable and at home the minute you walk in to her lovely home. Her food is phenomenal: Middle Eastern dishes, but with an Armenian touch, which brings new flavours and textures that I'd not experienced before. The extensive menu keeps delighting the palate, and it's exciting to test out all the different combinations throughout the dishes. Such a treat to discover a new cuisine which brings such delights to the eye and the palate. Guests were fantastic too. So many fascinating conversations ranging from food to travel to shipping to psychology in prisons to great wine and the joys of secret London. A fantastic evening that I cannot recommend enough. Thank you Natalie!

Food was authentic. Rice dish was divine! Lovely host though didn't get to speak to her very much.

Brilliant night. The food was lovely and even though there were meat dishes there was enough for me a vegetarian, saying that though there were meat dishes accompanied with a sauce and I would have liked a veg dish that also had a sauce. Ths host Natalie was fantastic very welcoming and very visible. Natalie obviously love cooking and entertaining. A really good and interesting food experience.

Dinner at Natalie's Armenian Kitchen was a wonderful experience! 10 courses, all delicious, cooked with care and love, great ambiance with corresponding Armenian music and decorations, very nice and friendly atmosphere, great company, perfect timing when serving food... all in all fabulous! Thank you Natalie!

Fantastic food! Everything was delicious and there was so much of it. Really lovely atmosphere and an overall brilliant experience.

My husband and I had a great time at Natalie's home last Saturday - Natalie is an incredibly welcoming host, the food was delicious and original and we met some very interesting people.

this was my second eve at Natalie's and it was yet again a complete success. Great food and a different menu from the last time I went, great ambience and a nice mix of people.

Great atmosphere and great food (and lots of it!). Very welcoming host who both allowed us to enjoy the food, while also being available for questions and insights about the culture, its traditions and foods. Had a great time!

An excellent evening.with beautiful & tasty food and a fantastic & welcoming hostess. I would recommend this to everyone😃

Natalie's Armenian Kitchen is simply amazing. I'd never tasted Armenian food before and I wasn't disappointed! Natalie was a great host, explaining her 10 course menu and the stories behind her exquisite dishes which added a great personal touch to the meal. I also asked for a veggie option which she catered for with some delicious alternatives. Very generous portions too! I highly recommend her evening & looking forward to sampling more Armenian food soon!

Lovely evening, great company and delicious food. It's a really good way to go out for dinner and to meet new and interesting people. Natalie was charming. Would definitely recommend!

A fantastic evening: delicious and copious food, as well as excellent company. Natalie was an ideal host. I hope to go back soon.

What a fantastic way to have an authentic taste of Armenian food in London. Natalie is a lovely person and her passion for good food is remarkable. I thoroughly enjoyed the evening from the beginning to the end with lots of food and flavour. I was nicely full up at the end! If you are looking to try something fantastic, she definitely can make that happen!

I had a wonderful time. The food was delicious - each dish had a different flavour and story that would give us insight into the heritage of the food. The company was fun and friendly. I would definitely do this again and very much recommend it to anyone who wants to have a bit of a culinary adventure!

I would give more than 5 stars for the food if I could. Everything we ate was delicious, Natalie was an excellent hostess making us feel welcome right from the start and sharing some insight into where her cooking inspiration is found. Lovely atmosphere all night and a fabulous evening! Would highly recommend!

Natalie was a fantastic host. The food was faultless, the company was great and Natalie made sure we were all very well fed. A very nice cosy flat with a great atmosphere, a top evening. Thank you!

Had a great evening. Most impressed with Natalie's faultless take on traditional Armenian dishes. In London, it seems she's singlehandedly bringing this healthy, delicious, little known cuisine to our plates and palates.

I had a fantastic evening with amazing food and great company - the food Nat served was really varied, tons of exciting flavours and she was an excellent host throughout the entire evening. Will definitely be joining one of her next events!

Natalie's Armenian Kitchen is absolutely amazing. Firstly, Natalie is a warm and welcoming host, instantly making guests feel at home. Guests have 30 mins to mingle and get to know each other over an Armenian inspired cocktail (included in the price). The intimate dining space is decorated with candles, and Armenian music plays in the background. Natalie has thought about the whole experience, and she has totally pulled it off. When the guests sit for dinner, Natalie brings out an array of dishes in an organised fashion, sharing her knowledge of the dish with her guests. Each course is a taste sensation. The herbs and spices are so obviously Middle Eastern, yet Natalie's dishes are like nothing I have ever had the pleasure of eating. I cannot recommend this evening any more; it was fantastic from beginning to end. The conversation flowed, the food was authentic and cooked with passion by a true professional, overall Natalie was the perfect host. Go and give it a try!

thanks Natalie. I really enjoyed the evening. the food was good. the atmosphere was very good. :) x

Lovely atmosphere and really comforting home cooked Armenian food. Did everything she said and more - 2 amazing cakes instead of one was an additional treat. I would definitely go back to Natalie's Armenian kitchen and try other supper clubs to see if they are as successful

Brilliant food, wonderful guests and delightful host. Highly recommend.

Lovely atmosphere, very relaxed. Amazing food and perfect hostess!
