“Food ok, service hardly existent”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2014

Had dinner - food was good, pretty normal middle eastern variety. Waiters smiled but kept forgetting (ignoring?) orders on their way to the kitchen. Over half an hour for ready made appetizers, 20min and several reminders later the bread that should have come with hummus. Beverages the same story. Three reminders. Best bet was to walk to the counter every so often to insist on the order. The restaurant was not fully booked, either. Go elsewhere.

“Good variety!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2013 via mobile

If you are sick of having steaks all the time in BA, here provides you a different pallet. The wild menu will certainly satisfy your need no matter what it is that day. Simple,not pretentious! Waiters are warm!

“They do not want to have clients.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

I sat at the terrace for 20 minutes waiting to be attended. My husband went three times to the counter asking the server to come. He never came. It was as if we didn't exist.

“Wonderful sidewalk dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013 via mobile

We've been to this restaurant twice in the last two weeks. On our first visit we tried to use only the Spanish menu and relied on our waiter's recommendations on good dishes. The second time we took the English menu and better understood what we were eating. Trying to translate middle eastern ethnic food names from Armenian to Spanish to English was a bit too much for our limited abilities. Our waiter spoke some english and remembered us on our second visit. Overall the food and wine are both excellent quality and good value for money spent. Highly recommend trying this restaurant.
