This was horrible dining experience.
Food, ambience, service, noise,
Bad, bad, bad
Worst Valentines Day dinner ever. They were out of everything but chicken and salmon. Service was neglectful at best. Sounded like s Tv and loud music were on at the same time. I feel like it must have changed management from the last time we were here years ago and I will not return.
The food was tasty but service was very slow. Tables were not set. This may seem overly critical but the dinner plate were very small and there was little room to move food around for cutting. Frankly, I found the restaurant uncomfortable even though the food tastes good.
Excellent food, excellent service. Great prices! This is the second time I've been here. My friend and I split the Kutabi appetizer, which was hot and delicious. I had the Chicken breast Kebob and he had the Middle Asian Style Lamb Pilaf. Both were perfectly seasoned and very flavorful. We had brought a few bottles of beer and the server promptly brought us glasses.
When we got there, there were 2 large parties in full swing, on opposite sides of the restaurant, but we were very well taken care of, especially considering this was on a Saturday night.
When you go into a restaurant offering Azerbaijani cuisine and you overhear the other customers speaking Russian, you know you're in for a good meal! I'll be back.
Excellent ethnic food, fresh and authentic. Good service. Attentive staff. Definitely would recommend this restaurant to friends. Will come back for a group gathering.
We went for my husbands graduation from college. Another group was having a party at the same time, we think a group celebrating an anniversary, they were so much fun.
Quiet for a Friday at 7PM, but the absence of a large crowd ensured that we would receive excellent service. The wait staff did not disappoint. Dishes were brought out quickly, and the kebab platters were excellent. Our party took full advantage of the BYOB policy. A great time, all in all. Would not hesitate to go back
Food was unexceptional but fine. Service stunk. The servers were very eager to take our order - checking in with us multiple times within the first 5 minutes of our arrival to see if we were ready. Then the meal took a really long time to arrive. And our dishes arrived separately, even though there were only two in our party. And then - the servers disappeared completely. They didn't check to see if everything was ok, no walk-throughs, nothing. I really wanted more water but no one was available - for over an hour (yes, really). They weren't busy - there was only one other party in the restaurant (who also complained about the wait). There were more staff there than patrons, so it wasn't that they were unusually busy. I would have thought the staff had just gone home, except that partway through our meal, a pizza delivery guy arrived and headed for the kitchen. I have no clue if the good reviews are real, but I'm not coming back.
We were a couple of the only people in there on a Friday night, which BLEW my mind. This is a gem, offering BYOB (no corkage fees) and AMAZING food. We shared the Piti Soup and the Kutabi
(thinly kneaded dough filled with meat, served with sumac spice). For my entree, I chose the Lamb Kebab and my boyfriend enjoyed the Beef Kebab. Both were spectacular...we were fighting over which was better. I hope this place sticks around because it was fabulous. The only recommendation I have for this place, is to maybe play some music so it's not so silent :)
The restaurant is one of a kind. It has a very authentic menu with delicious options beyond the kebabs. Seems to be popular for large groups.
Ethnic food at its OK level, but food could have been warmer; it was sufficient in quantity. The noise level though was horrible. It is a small place and they were having a party in half the place. They had a boom box playing at top volume and you couldn't hear yourself think, no less talk. They had a mike and people were giving speeches in a foreign language-very loud and boisterous. The party attenders took over the small floor area with dancing and you could barely get in or out of the doors . If they want to have parties, they should close the restaurant down and not let others in for the time allotted to the party. Being greedy cuts down on repeat customers. Quite a few people came in, saw what was going on and left immediately.
Very expensive poor quality food prepared unimaginatively!
we had a great time and would recommend it to any one.
My 3rd visit - service a little less enthusiastic than in prior visits. Bread but no sauce/spread brought, etc. All in all it was 'fine' but not great. Will still return for the eggplant sautee and thr incredible tea (hot or iced)
We live nearby, and have come here since it opened. I was glad to see it was now on Open Table. However, it is rarely busy when we come - we understand it gets a later crowd, but we have never understood why it isn't busier! The food is consistently good, and some of the appetizers are very interesting. Their bread is wonderful. We usually get some kind of kabab, and have always enjoyed them.
