The address in Tripadvisor is wrong. The restaurant has moved 2 blocks west on the same street.(already 2 years ago) Probably a sign of destiny I couldnt find this place for 2 nights. The Taboule as a starter was generous and refreshing. Right what you need after a day in the desert. The positive first impression got ruined by a... More

We were a family of five with our youngest child, nine years old. Unfortunately he is a picky eater. The restaurant was unwilling to make any accommodations. We asked for simple plain rice. They refused to give him any unless he ordered an expensive entrée which we knew he was not going to eat. I just don't understand their inflexibility... More

Really nice food and great presentation. The service could've been better, but it's understandable provided the date (jan 1st) . Lovely chicken curry.

It almost seems like 3 restaurants in one. There is a "terrace part" which is half open and later in the evening has a live piano and a small band. Both were playing a good variant of nice music. The service is good but it takes a long time to taje the orders. About the kitchen; the food can be... More

The dish presentations are spectacular and the taste matched the presentation. We had the curry chicken and the salmon ceviche. Both were tasty. They prepare the curry to your spice level which was great since I'm not a picante spice person. Wines are well priced and served at the proper temperature.

Popped in for a quick lunch, the server made sure to let us know that the beers were icy cold which was needed for a hot afternoon. Ordered a salad and was upscale & yummy and would get back to try other dishes.

We had daily menus of 4800 and 5900 at other places. Estaka's costs 10,000. Food quality was much higher, serving size very generous and the food was delicious. We started with a vegetable soup, then one of us had vegetarian canneloni and the other a large chicken breast in a pesto sauce served with creamy rice with figs. Entrees were... More
