Thank you Baku for your great IFTAR Meal. Me and my family enjoyed the taste of Azerbaijan. Your dishes brought back fond memories of my visit to Azerbaijan many years ago.😍 Every dish was well presented as the color of the dishes was vibrant and...every spoonful felt a bite of uniqueness and instaworthy😊. The taste was delightful and authentic. The ambience was also great. Every dish stole my heart and was to die for. The flavour is unforgettable, quantity was generous 🤗. Of course credit also go to the staff who was very polite and courteous. Someone truly said that best memories are made around the table and visiting this place recreated those memories..👏👏🤠More

This restaurant is located in City Walk 2 at 39 Al Safa Street in Dubai in the shadow of Burj Khalifa – the tallest building in the world. There were four of us who visited the restaurant. The restaurant is on two floors. It is...beautifully decorated. The interior was lit up with many lights – but the toilet areas were on the dark side. Our table was on the terrace of the second floor. There were curtains draped to shield us from the sun. The staff members were very polite, friendly and helpful. We took time to go through the menu before making our order. We opted for lamb chops, lamb kebab, lula kebab and chicken kebab as our main courses. We also ordered a bouquet of vegetables and herbs as a side salad dish. The bouquet was in fact a dish containing three uncut small cucumbers, four small tomatoes, a long onion cut into two, a radish cut into four pieces, a chilli pepper, coriander, basil and mint. For the price of the dish (GBP 11) it was disappointing value for money. For drinks we had two compote jugs of cherry juice. The main course arrived about 40 minutes after we placed our order. Our kebabs were placed on one dish. There were three pieces of lula kebab and three pieces of lam chops. There were four pieces of chicken and four pieces of lamb kebab. There were three small ramekins of salsa sauce. I wondered why there were three given that there were four of us. They gave us a complimentary basket of four bread rolls which had been just baked. These were very nice indeed. The meats were tender and delicious and we enjoyed the food. The bill came to the equivalent of GBP120. I would recommend this restaurant.More

We used to come to Baku a lot before with the family but this time was horrible. First, when we came, the lady at the reception took us up(no lift) without asking if we wanted to be seated inside or outside. When we came upstairs...we asked to be seated on the terrace because I was pregnant and due to the situation with corona. They said that on the terrace it was not possible with the kids because of shisha and we can only sit inside. The terrace was only occupied with 2 non-smoking tables and it was 6:50 pm so nobody was coming to smoke shisha for sure and even if they did there was plenty space. Anyway she told us we could only sit on the ground floor so it’s ok for me to run up and down 8 months pregnant. Baku-never again! Such a shame, it was a nice place and a brilliant service before.More

Had a great night at Baku Cafe, staff explained a lot about their national food and traditions, even provided me with some extra's to discover their trademarks. Cozy atmosphere, friendly staff and great quality food. Definitely recommend this place!

We chose Baku cafe after feeling bored of madinat jumeirahs restaurant options. We had never had azeri food but had tried Turkish many times, and having been to turkey a handful, we assumed it would be a similar affair. As soon as we came in,...we were greeted warmly and given a choice of tables despite it being so busy. Our waiter told us the history of the food and reccomended the traditional Baku salad of tomatoes onions and plums, and we also got the aubergines meze. THE BEST STARTERS IVE EVER HAD!! We then couldn’t decide on sides and so they gave us different complementary plates to try. They ship their meat, vegetables and sauces FROM BAKU twice a week!!! This should be Michelin star!!! Thankyou to rauf and haji for the best service and for explaining each dish to thoroughly!More

I have visited this place with my wife in the afternoon. The receptionist was not welcoming at all. The place looks nice and cost. I really like the food. However, the service was not great. The manager lacks customer service skills and we could hear...him talking about other customers. He was intimidating as well and keeps starring at us. Anyways, it was very weird ... We were served by an Egyptian staff, he was very polite and made recommendations.More
