“Saw the sign and thought we we're in Sarajevo and not Sarajet!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2013

My wife and I were on a group tour travelling to Albania for the day, and when arriving in Tirana, the Sarajet was the restaurant which accommodated us before we set out on our free time through the city.
The location of the restaurant of was great, only a couple of minutes walk from the square. Also presentation and decor was tastefully done. Onto the food, which started with a vegetable soup then a mixed dish of different meats chopped up in small pieces, and for dessert was a nutty slice of Baklava.
The price of the meal was ridiculously cheap, wish it was the same in London! Waiters seemed to be stressed when under pressure, but otherwise our whole experience in the Sarajet was a nice one. Bon appetit!

“Good atmosphere”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2013

Lovely restaurant placed in an antique sarajet (serail).
It has the charme of a unexpected ottoman location.
I've been there for an a drink.

“A nice surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2013

We wandered into the Sarajet on a whim. The food and service were very good. I would rate this as one of the better restaurants in Tirana. We dined in the garden which was very nice. Indoors wasn't much to rave about and the men's room could have been a bit cleaner. Otherwise, give it a try. You'll enjoy it.

“Decent restaurant with a Balkan/Turkish touch in central Tirana”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 January 2013

Great location - right off Skanderbej square

Fantastic venue - the restaurant is situated within the Toptani
family mansion, a real architectural gem especially if compared ot the total
mayhem in of central Tirana.

Decent food too, altough not particularly inspiring

Prices on the medium-high side by Tirana standards but still
amazingly cheap by any European standard

Try chef's special/meal of the day if available it's usually tasty and fresh
