Çka Ka Qellue
Will never visit this restaurant again.
It was a beautiful evening, the place was wonderful, the food tasted great and the service was excellent. It will definitely be back.
Visited 9/8/21 Cka ka Qellue is a wonderful Albania restaurant and absolutely worth the drive in from Southport, Connecticut.
The food was delicious, the service excellent and the restaurant has a charming and rustic ambiance yet chic and immaculate at the same time. Wait staff, fun and polite gentlemen, were most amiable and attentive and added so much to a festive evening. Faleminderit! We will be back.
One of the most authentic and delicious places in NYC.
Interesting and very good Mediterranean cuisine, different than the usual turkish or greek ones.
All seems to be fresh, nothing from a can. Ambiance is pleasant, low noise level, background music is nice, and unusual. Impeccable service. I am looking forward to a second visit.
Food was amazing, staff fantastic and decor had a real Albanian home feel to it
Great food and amazing service. Thank you Jemmy :)
This to me is a hidden gem! Especially to meat-lovers like myself I really enjoyed all kind of things offered here. All the clay-pot dishes are amazing.
Cozy place for a dining with albanian/kosovo food. Had a pleasant time. The service is impeccable. Absolutely will go again.
Tried the new restaurant on 31st street and thought it was really excellent. The interior feels very European and like you are stepping into another country. It is perfect for a more intimate date or small group dinner. They give you warm bread for starters and we ordered a yogurt dip appetizer to go with it. For our entrees we tried the mixed meat platter for one and the Mantia veal dumplings served in a tava. We also ordered glasses of red wine. For dessert we got the trelice and Albanian coffee. The food was all incredibly delicious and the menu was very unique. Would highly recommend trying this restaurant out for something different!
We had an outdoor reservation, but got seated inside. It was fine as we had the whole room to ourselves. There's a super cute patio in the back, I'd love to sit there sometime or on the street Patio they have. The combo platter was great as well as the dumpling like appetizer we had. Would love to come back and sit outside this summer!
Amazing food. The bread was incredible. Great experience.
Felt like I was in Europe!
Everything was delicious and the waitstaff attentive.
Their tiny Coca Cola bottles are 5$ a pop which is ridiculous but the food was some of the best authentic Albanian food in USA
Wonderful food! Try it!!!
Very pleasant inside environment. We sat in the back, with costumes hanging on the walls. Eli, our waiter, was the sweetest that could be and very helpful in explaining all the dishes. She steered us well and helped us choose.
We will definitely be back and try some new dishes next time.
Everything very good ,food ,environment and service
We noticed that this restaurant opened up during the pandemic so decided to pay them a visit. We made a 7:30 reservation for Saturday night and looked over the menu in advance to get an idea of what we might want to order. While they seemed to have an extensive wine list, most of the wines we tried to order were not in stock so we had to settle for one of the few bottles that they actually did have available. Then we started to ask about the appetizers and the first few items we tried to order were also not available. The waitress then ran through a small list of the few appetizers from the menu that they were actually serving that night. Same issue with the entrees: none of the items we wanted to have were available that night. In the end, we decided to leave rather than being forced into ordering food that we actually didn't want to eat. Given that this was 7.30 on a Saturday night, it's hard to understand how they could be out of so many dishes so early in the evening with only had three tables in the outdoor dining area. Very misleading!
The food was delicious, and the portions were great! The environment was so beautiful and so different from any other restaurants in the area! Loved the Albanian national costumes and all the paintings. The service was great too! Everyone was so welcoming!
Delicious food and very friendly staff. The decor and music is very authentic Albanian.
The pita bread that is served in the beginning of the meal is amazing - best I have ever had, it comes out warm too!!
