I'd heard good things about the restaurant and we were excited to try it as I love Mediterranean food. Sadly, it was a very disappointing experience and we won't be back.

Love the decor and atmosphere, so had high hopes, but the service was sub-par, and the cocktails were unbalanced — as were the flavors of the food.

The exception was the hummus and lamb, which were wonderful although the hummus portion was very small (and $15 with a few wood-fired mushrooms). There is potential here but needs MUCH more attention and oversight from management. (Listening??) Feels like a lot of show to me. The staff was aloof and uninspired. Our order came out wrong and took 20 minutes to revive the correct small plate. They did remove this from the bill, as they should have done.

Maybe we'll try again in six months for drinks with hopes that all will improve.

Food was really good. Service was not so good and wine was a problem, taps didn't work, ordered a bottle... it was warm. Ended up waiting a really long time just to get a sub par drink. Really too bad. Food is the hard part and it was delicious.

Great flavors, lovely decor, but it’s the “$20 hummus place” and that’s a bit spendy for what it is.

Only if you are not pressed for time. Our reservation was for a hightop and they tried to seat us in a booth in the back corner by the kitchen. The service was very, very slow. Waiting 10-15 minutes for anyone to even take an order. We had to ask for service several times and remind the server of items we had ordered. The food was very good. We still had an enjoyable evening. Hopefully, this was a fluke in their service.

Fabulous food. It is pricey because portions are small so you do have to order a lot. Love the decor and staff are quite knowledgeable on every item of the menu. Will definitely return

Food was pretty good. Hummus was fantastic and the pita was like a fluffy pillow. The sauce with the falafel and the sauce with the lamb were both underwhelming and could’ve been more flavorful, but the falafel and lamb itself were both so good! Service was friendly but sparse. We saw our server maybe once after checking on us when we got our food. We would’ve ordered more cocktails but she never came back around.

Fabulous food, customer service, cocktails, all so great. We’ll be back soon for sure but as a smaller group. It is extremely loud in the space and there is no way to have a conversation with a group larger than 4.

Could be great for a family, kids and adults can enjoy the food and using fingers to eat most items.

Highly recommend this place for any occasion.

My first time here. A treasure found! The staff was friendly! We had our waitress help us choose some small dishes to compliment the main course. We started with hummus and ended with lamb and a whole sea bass! It was prepared well and tasted better than what I imagine it to be. I am new to this type of cuisine, it was excellent! The outdoor seating was so much fun! Just the right amount of people and noise, great ambiance. I will come back! Thank you for such a great experience. I really enjoyed branching out and trying all the dishes.

Ash’Kara is incredible. My friend grew up on a Mediterranean cuisine and we both agreed this was one of the best meals we’ve had in Denver. Every single thing we ordered was perfect and a unique cuisine delight. (And we ordered a lot) Thank you, Ash’Kara!

Ash'Kara never fails. The server let me know that they were understaffed for the evening upon welcoming us (which I thought was very thoughtful) and ensured that he would be working harder to make sure we were taken care of. He did exactly that. Carl checked in regularly, provided exceptional service, and the food came quickly and was fresh. The drinks were crafted to perfection and the food was absolutely incredible - per usual. The ambiance and total feel of the restaurant was perfect for a date night or evening out with friends and family.

The prices really are very reasonable for the quality of food you will get, and the quality is absolutely wonderful. Everything was so, so good. I haven't had pita and hummus that good since my last trip to the middle east.
