what the critics say

Tuesday, February 14, 2012 - The tandir sturgeon we had was small and the flavour we'd expected (perhaps wrongly based on experiences eating Indian food) was not apparent; the sturgeon from the grill, served with pomegranate molasses, was also small. The 'beef turshu govurma' was an amazingly tender, fatty bowl of rib-eye slow-cooked and servied with onion, plum and chestnut...So I recommend dropping by Baku for drinks. For an authentic taste of Baku, though, I fear you may need to go elsewhere.

Fay Maschler - 2/5

Thursday, January 12, 2012 - From the section entitled To Share From the Tandir, we choose Chicken Lavangi with walnut stuffing. For 27.50 this turns out be a poussin smaller than an adult's fist, where the lack of flavour for which such birds are notorious finds no compensation in bitter minced walnuts. Piti, 'a must-try Azerbaijani lamb stew', at 18.50 contains fatty meat bulked out with chickpeas. Choban salad at 8.50 is the sort of mix of chopped tomato, onion and cucumber often provided as garnish for grills in Indian restaurants and is served in roughly that quantity. To be fair, a couple of extra items were 'gifted' but since we didn't pay for them, I won't comment. The dessert of pomegranate and rose souffle was tart and very pretty.
