We were celebrating my wife’s 40th birthday. She is vegetarian, and asked the server to bring us recommended plates - it was all fantastic, but the carrots were truly amazing.

Bartenders were outstanding, food was good, but our waitress was not good/ not attentive. We all have bad days but she made us feel bad about even being there… she ignored us after ordering our food and I ended up having to go to the bartender to ask for our check. Very upset at the service from our waitress.

Outside under a cozy red umbrella, we split a chicken swarma roll in home made pita and a fatoush salad. Very well done and served promptly! Very enjoyable!

Overall great experience, however did notice that the music got pretty loud for a Thursday evening. I could barely hear the person across the table from me without shouting.

Ash'Kara has a unique menu with very interesting flavors and subtle spicing. My wife and I had dinner outside with a very nice bottle of red Greek wine, a Syrah, Xinomavro blend. The Babaganoush was excellent with puffy pita bread. We shared the Calabrian Olives, 14 Hour Ribs and Roasted Carrots. The portions were very generous and "one" of us will have a nice lunch later! Our waitress, Rebecca was terrific.
We will definitely be returning for more.

We had the perfect anniversary date at Ash’Kara! Our server was amazing, the drinks were so good, and the food was INCREDIBLE. We ate till we literally couldn’t have another bite. The hummus is the best I’ve ever tasted, the falafel is perfect- with a really unique and delicious tahini sauce- and the octopus and short rib entrees were both fantastic. Can’t say enough positive things about our experience. We loved every second of it!

I have been here many times, it use to be one of our favorites, but it is really going downhill recently. Spent a majority of the evening trying to get any sort of service. Drinks always empty, new drinks sitting in view on the bar for 10+ minutes before they are brought over. Not even able to get water for the table. Not able to get clean plates in between courses so we just sat there watching the food get cold. I think this was the last time we will be giving them a chance to improve.

The hummus is still amazing but that shouldn't have been the highlight of the evening...

Service was disappointing. Husband's slow roasted meat was tough to cut with knife. Too loud visually and sound wise for my taste. Hummus with mushrooms was yummy.

Food was great as usual, but disappointed that we had to leave our table after 1.5 hours considering restaurants are back at 100% capacity. Seems very greedy and ruins the experience.

Wonderful restaurant. The food is great, fresh and delicious - especially if you are a vegetarian. There are many vegetarian/ vegan options. It is LoHi Denver, so parking is rarely an issue. And they have a parking lot. Service is great as are the creative cocktails.

Ash'Kara blew me away. Everything we ate was delicious and the service as outstanding. We were celebrating my mom's birthday - and the restaurant went above and beyond to treat her. Highly recommend the carrots, hummus + mushroom conserva and octopus. I consider it my new favorite restaurant!

We arrived early enough (before 5:30) to take advantage of 'Happy Hour' offerings. That's a great value. We ordered items from both the Happy Hour menu and the dinner menu resulting in nice variety of dishes.
We opted to have our items brought to the table 'when ready' (as opposed to all at one time). That was also a good choice. Everything arrived hot off the grill (or right out of the oven) and we enjoyed a constant stream of delicious food.
The wait staff used a 'team' approach resulting in excellent service.

I highly recommend Ash'Kara for Mideastern fare.

Issac was very knowledgeable and made great recommendations for food and drinks. He was able to pace the kitchen to fire our selections in steady progression which elevated our experience. I don’t know what they do to make the roasted chicken so amazing but I’ve never had a chicken dish melt in my mouth before! Highly recommend the falafel, carrots and chicken dish.

We brought some out of town guests for our “fancy” meal while they were in town. We got a bottle of wine (and some special attention from the bar manager to describe it to us) and had a sampling of the smaller plates. Everything paired well together and was just right for 4 to share. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for an upscale meal that you couldn’t get anywhere else.

Lovely late night snack at this lively spot. The hummus was delicious and so was their Bulgarian feta. The fries were definitely a bit old and I got served the wrong glass of wine but the ambiance was awesome, the server was sweet and lively and i chalk up what happened to the fact that we arrived on the late side. I’d definitely go again!
