Firstly behind a rather unprepossessing exterior, Bibi opens up like a fable in the 1001 Arabian Nights. Owner Reza also decided after some years in Baku that what the city really needed was a decent Persian restaurant and Bibi is the fruit of all his labour. And pleasingly popular with Persian ex-pats, Bibi is also a wonderful mix of East and West, with rush-matted ceilings, great chandeliers, kilims on walls and curious portraits of Europeans, in partly Asiatic dress.
And the meal also starts with an enormous puffed up Persian lavash, or flatbread, shiny with butter and dotted with black poppy seeds. Beside this many great Persian dishes share a common ancestor with Azeri cuisine, so be on the look-out for a Persian take on chicken with walnuts and pomegranate. It is also best served with barberry rice. And finally be sure and stay for tea and hunks of delicious honeyed preserved quince after your meal too.
