This restaurant tries to take you to Baku, Azerbaijan and it partly succeeds - live music and tasty plates without surprises and kind staff. One could argue that it is destined for tourists only.

Eating here is something akin to dining in a palace. The high ceilings and walls are covered with gorgeous, intricate patterns in bright colours, interspersed with mirrors. Food is classic Azerbaijani, meaning you may not know exactly what anything is on the menu without asking but it is bound to be satisfying. The pilaf dishes are a must, with lightly seasoned basmati rice, tender portions of meat, nuts, stewed fruits and vegetables. They also have baked vegetable stews, soups and tea served in tiny traditional glasses. Friday and Saturday nights feature music and dance acts and occasionally even fire-eating belly dancers.
