Good value authentic food

Good selection of mezes. Bread fresh. Great Royal Persian Lamb. Lively atmosphere, but not overly loud. Food and drinks both good value.

Especially during summertime, when the nights are still warm, you can sit outside. They have a nice variety of dishes which you normally cannot get somewhere else. I ordered the Bizar Bazar multiple times and everytime I liked the presentation of the big dish. If you fancy Mediterranean food, this is the place to go!

Initially a friend had booked a table for twelve people and then increased to group of 30. The abrubt staff then told us once seated we could only have 3 items from the menu due to numbers. (Albeit restaurant was not full) I then asked a member of staff if I could simply have a chicken salad for me and... More

We went to Rotterdam for the weekend just to browse around and relax. We hadn't thought about eating until the last minute. The reception staff at the InnTel recommended Bazar along with a number of others, as they were all close to the hotel itself. You can't reserve a table at this restaurant, so we called in on spec.

I went with 3 friends that have recommended it a lot. I had a salad with bread and chicken. I'm a grill and meat guy, so salad is not what i intend to ask, but, for the first time in my life, i had a salad that i actually enjoyed. It was perfect! A great waiter served us. And also... More

This place has a nice vibe. Looks nice, little over the top but it works. But the food is very dissappointing. I had the Couscous, one of their signature dishes. Dry couscous, with grilled meat which was OK, dried fruits and bad tasting sauce. Really not good at all. It's a pity. I love Middle Eastern food but this is... More

A great breakfast, good value for the food. Nice environment and good service. The food is a mixed of different arabic flavors. Big quantity in the dishes. Good option for a brunch or a dinner with friends.

Excellent food in a fantastic atmosphere! Very nice location. Eating outside was just perfect in a warm October day. Not the place to go for a quiet, private meal.
