It was my first time here and I didn’t know what to expect except that it used to be a very high rated place to eat. I like their concpet a lot, I love exploring new places and cuisines. So we took several spreads and...their traditional bread as our starter. And we loved it. The bread was fresh, soft and straight from the oven, spreads and dried beef were full of flavor and light. Talking about mains, we decided to try their famous pilaf and lagman with beef. They were okay, but nothing special of worth trying. It was very nice to see how staff is helping each other but on the other hand we always had to look for someone to other more drinks or mains.More

Last night we had a dinner here. All went well till that point, when I payed the bill, and just on my way out I realised, that it seems a bit expensive (130eur.). I checked the bill (usually I never do that), and I found...that there are lots of things we did not ordered. Waiter, after 20 minutes made a refund of 55e., however no apology what so ever.More

Oh my goodness where do I even start?? This restaurant is absolutely perfect in every way possible! The staff are so so kind and helpful, the menu is very elegant and vegetarian (+vegan?) friendly, and the decor too! The location is a tiny bit further...from the very center which makes a very cozy and peaceful vibe, especially if you’re eating a late dinner. Off the menu I would recommend their "Meze", it’s basically like small dips or salads served with naan bread. The naan bread is actually better than the naan I’ve had in several Indian restaurants so take that as you will. The restaurant opens at noon and closes at midnight, so you can’t really eat breakfast there. Once again a huge shoutout to the staff, thank you so much!More

Went with my wife for celebrating her name's day. We choose 2 appetizers, 1 sup and 2 main dishes (2 liulia kebab). It was a big surprise when we had the soup and one of the main courses in about 20 minutes and after 15...minutes we got the appetizers. I asked some bread and tomatoes for my liulia kebab, and as it was too long without it, I asked to bring the bread and the tomatoes while they were preparing the meat. Ok, we ate everything and by the end I got my meat. The quality of the food is very good, it is not excellent, but is good the taste. What I think is that a good quality food must come with a good service and by time for each step, and not when they will have the time to bring it... So, we will not go again to this place, there are enough and good places when you can be in real satisfied.More

We met here for a Sunday lunch with friends and thank goodness, I had booked a table, because the place was full. Within the next half hour it became clear, why - we were brought huge portions of aromatic soup with tiny delicious dumplings and...moorish baked pasta with generously sliced beef or plump shrimp, accompanied by fresh salads. Snacks did not disappoint either, especially crispy pickled cucumber, doused with my favorite toasted sesame oil. The food came quick, the service was efficient and the prices were more than reasonable, given the portion size. As one great chef loves to say, generousity is the key, and Kinza definitely have that key.More

I'll start with the positives... the baked aubergine with tahini sauce was lovely and if you do end up here then I would recommend it. The decor is also nice and everything *looks* clean. However... I'll get onto the negatives. Firstly, the service was unbelievably...slow (despite the place being fairly empty!). The waiters did not once show a smile and when they served the food, they just put it on the table, without stating what anything was, which was very odd. Secondly, the hygiene was terrible! I was served a meal with clearly USED chopsticks!!! Thirdly, the food is very hit and miss. Yes, the aubergine with tahini dressing was lovely, but the vegetable soup was incredibly salty and all I could taste was salt!! Not very authentic experience of Asian cuisine.More

Like this place for friendly staff and tasty meal. With friends we like a lunch offer on Friday when they serve best meals on "day offer".

Very authentic Middle East restaurant - I didn't have high expectations before going there, but was nicely surprised. Tender chicken shashlik, beef with noodles were very delicious. However, the music was not very ambient - strong electro for the Sunday night is most probably not...the best pick.More

We have a tradition to have lunch on Friday together, so the company will be of 18 people voted for this place. Keep in mind that you should reserve a table during lunch time! It is full😊 We tried day soup of beef, hot, not...fat, strong taste left in my mouth. Plovas was delicious, rise cooked perfectly, just stronger spices were missing. Note, payment is at the bar, so if all pay separately, the queue is quiet long😉More

We went today for lunch, the menu isn't huge but there are enough choices of dishes from central Asia to Asia. I opted for the chicken skewer which wasn't extremely exciting. My partner had one of the Lagmans and she said it was nice.
