The Azerbaijani restaurant consists of a large space perfectly suitable for dining with family, friends or business meetings as well as for bigger format events, such as birthday celebrations and a smaller private space for enjoying your meal in a smaller circle. Over the years Sumakh has become a place of gastronomic pilgrimage for famous artists, politicians and guests of the city. Exquisitely selected interior, reflecting old local traditions creates a unique atmosphere of comfort, while the menu presented from the most famous Chiefs deliver you the full flavor of Azerbaijani cuisine.
