We booked a table for my friends birthday party for downstairs. The food and service was ok but the keyboard player was
awful.The old guy was playing out of tune and didn't have a clue about music.My wife is iranian and I really enjoy persian music but,I think they must get a new keyboard player. Someone who can understand proper persian melody.All my iranian friends left the restaurant earlier.what a shame.

Three of us came to this restaurant in Hammersmith last night. We received a friendly greeting, seated and given our menus, and asked for our drinks orders. Items on the menu were exp!aimed and we ended up with a starter of breads with mixed dips - absolutely delicious. A salad is put on the table (free of charge) to go with the started. For main course we had one stew,one chicken dish and one lamb dish. They came with rice but we chose to have the rice with fruits of the garden instead. We shared the food between the three of us. We did not want a desert but I had a fresh mint tea to finish with. The owner came over for a chat before we left. A very good evening, reasonably priced and good atmosphere. Will certainly be back and would recommend.

My son has also had a take away from them. Just as good.

Do go and try it out.

I tried this restaurant with some friends recently. None of us had any experience with traditional food from Azerbaijan, so we weren't sure what to order. The staff was very accomodating and gave us some good reccomendations. We started with a variety plate of dips with bread - all were quite good, but were I to go again, I would skip everything and just get a large helping of hummous - it was great!

At the waiter's recommednation, we did a family-style platter of various grilled meats for the main. The various lamb dishes were all tasty, and the chicken was good if not spectacular. The saffron rice was very well put together, and one of my friends tried the rice with dill - he enjoyed it very much.

As a bonus, the saffron ice cream was a treat, and they also had a decent selection of wines (we ended up going with a Georgian wine - they had many that weren't on the menu, so if you know anything about wine, ask and see if they have your favorite)
