Locaiton is good. Ambiance is great but service is soooooo slow. Extra touristic but also meals are cold. I mean REALLY COLD MEAL. Cold soup, cold meat, cold tea. It is famous but it is not worth it.

So no recommended. Staff is very ride. Service is miserable. We asked for 2 person reservation and was done by hotel. They made us sit in corner with no view or window and when we asked to change sear, the manager got angry and sent...us to 3rd floor as revenge. Other staff was also rude and didnt take order for 40 mins. They think its their right to invite us or no. Would not recommend. Other options are much betterMore

I'd scrubbed this restaurant from my to do list having read the many dire reviews here on TA. But my hotel (Fairmont Flame Tower) highly recommended it, as did my guide books, & so I booked.... albeit still fearing a rip off tourist trap &...dodgy food. I ended up having the best night of my week! I was keen to experience a restaurant with traditional Azerbaijani musical entertainment at least once during my stay, & had settled on the legendary Mugam Club, (which gets considerably better reviews than the Sirvansah). Unfortunately the Mugam Club cancelled the entertainment on the night of my visit without notice. Following that disappointment, my hotel convinced me to give this a go - & I’m so glad I did. Visually - it is something else! An endless labyrinth of richly decorated rooms stuffed to the rafters with artefacts, bric a brac & myriad other bits & bats of Azerbaijani furniture. Personally, I wouldn't have wanted to have missed seeing this museum piece, regardless of food & service. Thankfully though, my experience of the restaurant was also positive. I was greeted with warmth & efficiency by a lovely hostess & shown to a ground floor table close to the musicians. There was a QR code menu on the table, but due to poor phone coverage, this didn't work for me. I sat for about 15 minutes awaiting service which showed no sign of being imminent, so had to get up to approach a waiter for a menu & a drink. To be fair, he did then bounce over with enthusiasm, & service was efficient & really good humoured thereafter. I kept it simple on the food front & my salmon kebab main course was perfectly good, as were the wines. The music was enjoyable, ditto the traditional dance performance. The place brims with character & atmosphere, & though undoubtedly touristy, it was a Baku experience I wouldn't have wanted to miss.More

The place is astonishing, you are really transported to an old Azerbaijani place, full of carpets and typical objects. There is a nice folkloric dance show and a violinist playing traditional tunes. A pity the food is not that good, as it would have been...perfect with the place… prices are really correctMore

Our private tour guide booked our group of 10 a table here and we were told on several occasions that this was one of the very best restaurants in all of Baku, so we were naturally excited for this concept and dinner experience. We arrived...and were immediately ushered past the interesting “museum” part of the restaurant upstairs to the clear tourist area. The restaurant was a little music was ridiculously loud to the point that we couldn’t even hear to have conversations without screaming across the table. We were treated like a nuisance and told “ no touch” “ hands off” “move”, etc. The service was extremely slow and subpar and the waiters were somewhat rude and not engaged at all as they looked very disorganized as they looked elsewhere.. We asked for waters for the table several times and we never received any, they came to bring us wine and slapped it on the table and left it there for 1/2 hour without opening it. They originally only sat only 8 of 10 of us and then acted put out when we told them that we needed 2 chairs and 2 place settings. They seemed like they only wanted to serve what they wanted and said “no” a lot. We ordered several starters, mains, sides, etc to share family style and I’d venture to guess that we only received 1/2 of what we ordered, were told “no” a good bit and then were brought a bunch of useless stuff that we didn’t order at all like stale bread, a plate of herbs, some bowls of cold unrecognizable stuff, and some pickled vegetables. Settling the tab was a mess. They played the “card doesn’t work” game. We tried 10 different cards and not a single one worked. We asked them to try a different card terminal but they refused. We finally said we’d pay cash and the waiters said, said “okay, let me check” and then came back with a new receipt that was 250 more than the original and claimed the other one was a mistake. The manager came over to de escalate the situation and wanted us to walk to an ATM with home to change money so he could have USD. We finally just gave up and paid with just to leave this horrible place. It seemed like a huge scam to just get USD. In all: food was average , served too cold, and mass produced/not authentic, service was horrible, the staff are rude, the music was way too loud, the dancers were good but nothing great, and the check out experience was horrible. To say this place is a tourist trap is an understatement. We had several way better experiences around town on other nights.More

The Sirvanshah Museum Restaurant is a very beautifull location with a great atmosphere. Really worth a visit by itself. Our waiter in our separate room was positive and enthusiastic. Our traditional starters came as ordered and were really good. But then came the main dishes........We were 7 people with seven different dishes. really poor quality and very little food. We looked at each other and shook our heads. I felt sorry for the skinny chicken who probably starved to death. The Sirvanshah Museum Restaurant is a very beautifull location and it could have been such a great experience. I would love to bring friends and business contacts there, but i will not due to the poor food, and that is sad.More

Had a trip in Baku, and occasionally decided to visit this place. This place is worth seeing and popular among locals, so take care about your reservations. Be ready so spend your time seeing the exposition of really "museum" of citizen life in Baku. it...makes a complete delight. For the food - what we tasted was really nice, like a "high cuisine" of local dishes. for the service - it might take longer than expected (too big distance from table to kitchen :)) , but you can enjoy watching the exposition during waiting. Be ready for a little bit bigger cheque, if compared to most of the restaurants in the tourist area.More

Horrible experience. Very bad staff who don’t know English. Not much vegetarian options at all. Had to wait 45 min to get water that also after reminding several times. Soup came which was very bad taste and stale breads. Very loud music which did not...get reduced even after telling the manager. Finally we decided to leave without eating anything and instead of apologizing they brought the bill for full order which had not even come to our table and asked us to pay. We paid it as just wanted to get out from there. Horrible experience, rude staff and will not recommend anyone to go there and spoil their day.More

Place is spectacular like a museum. Food selection is wide but taste was not always delicious. To my opinion in such restaurant it must be a great. Nice live music and show offered during evening time. Service is very decisive but I did not expect...much more from no name local restaurant.

The restaurant staff is very friendly. Food s amazing, the overall atmosphere is great. There is a lot of history. I recommend to take the small tour offered by the restaurant staff. It is free of cost but i recommend that tips should be given...to the person. If you wish to eat Shah Plov then give around 1 hour for its preparation. The fresh juices were also great. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is visiting Baku.More
