Azerbaijani in Historic Heart

Baku's ornate decor – tiled walls, arched doorways and throw pillows – whisks you to old Azerbaijan. Try Azeri shashlyk (kebabs), traditional plov (rice and lamb spiced with cumin and raisins), as well as delicious kutab (thin pancakes stuffed with different fillings).

Service is deferential, and there’s an upstairs room if you don’t fancy the nightly live music downstairs.
