Sarajet offers Albanian food. The service is good, the waiters are friendly. The prices are reasonable.

We ate outdoors. Salad was fine. Waiter was helpful. Bottle of Albanian wine was not exciting but had no defects. Mixed grilled meats very dry & overcooked. Price was fine.

Six friends walked over from Skanderbeg Square, about 5 minutes. Lovely mid 1800's mansion with Ottoman styling. Started with large platters of salad to pass, then a pass around of squares of white corn (maise) in yogurt. Nice selection of breads, leavened and unleavened, with a tasty butter. Then what our Albanian friend called a local specialty: vegetable chunks (like... More

First and only time I was there, the meal price was 1600 lek. I pay 2000 lek and the waiter on purpose only brings 200 lek back instead of 400 lek. Tips in Albania are not mandatory, but still it is very unethical that the waiter gets the part he wants from my exchange.

I live in the us, have family in Albania so decided to eat here since it was close to the home. Disgusting. I ordered seafood pasta and got seafood poisoning 3 hours later vomiting and high fever...continuously vomiting and very weak.

Tried a couple of local starters which were very interesting and mainly very tasty. One dish containing maize bread and yoghurt would probably be best described as an acquired taste! Rest of the food and local wine was good and reasonably priced. Friendly and helpful serving staff.

My wife and I were on a group tour travelling to Albania for the day, and when arriving in Tirana, the Sarajet was the restaurant which accommodated us before we set out on our free time through the city. The location of the restaurant of was great, only a couple of minutes walk from the square. Also presentation and decor... More

Lovely restaurant placed in an antique sarajet (serail). It has the charme of a unexpected ottoman location. I've been there for an a drink.

We wandered into the Sarajet on a whim. The food and service were very good. I would rate this as one of the better restaurants in Tirana. We dined in the garden which was very nice. Indoors wasn't much to rave about and the men's room could have been a bit cleaner. Otherwise, give it a try. You'll enjoy it.
