The lunch special was really cheap and the food was really tasty. Fun decor and good service. It's a great place to try Azerbaijani food!

Centrally located. Interesting interior. Very long menu list - great variety. Quality food. A little bit dark. A little bit overpriced, but just a little for such a restaurant. A lot of space inside. Worth visit in the evening.

This is an interesting restaurant with a huge menu and ornate decor. Staff were very attentive and generally service was excellent. However, the experience was soured by the staff being over persuasive in suggesting additional and more costly items to add to the order. Furthermore...More

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.
