I have to say the people working there are dishonest. They give you some recommendation for selecting food, but at the end, when they bring it, you see there is huge difference between what they say and what they bring. Also they treat the tourists with disrespect and try to cheat them. One of our friend recommended to go to... More

I'm sorry I have to join the reviewers who have had a bad experience at this place. Eventually, its mixed, but more on the downside. It's a nice historic setting, indeed. But the way they treat customers is absolutely disgraceful. Charging $60 for a jar of house pomegranate wine (although, really good one) is a rip off. The menu didn't... More

I have to agree with the other one star reviews. The (unfriendly) waiter brought me twice what I ordered; then charged twice what I expected to pay. Then he didn't want to bring me my change. Then he claimed there was a double service charge, one for the cook and one for him! Best avoided, until the waiters learn how... More

Fantastic to leave such experience. It was like to be in the past with colors, purfums and food in the ancient past. Good service and big attention distinguish this restaurant from many others.

I was walking through the pretty old town of Baku in a windy night. I bumped into a beautiful looking restaurant with live music. Once greeted, I was invited into a lovely individual pod decorated with traditional and kitch decorations and carpets. Loved the feeling of the place, looked through the good looking menu and was ready to order. After... More

Great place for kebabs and other local food. Whenever in Baku try to bring friends and colleagues here. No one ever regretted. Fast friendly service. Outstanding historical location in a midleeval "motel" on the great Silk Road.

Walked in to this place by an accident to have a lunch. Place was empty. It was quite difficult to communicate with the waiter as he spoke only Azerbaijani. Seemed they have no idea what it means to serve guests. Zero interest in you. Got an order and came back to his iphone to look at girls in Instagram. They... More
