THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Sanafir Restaurant Review

: A bold balance of North African, Asian, Indian and Mediterranean flavors fused with Pacific Northwest ingredients is achieved by chef Mike Robbins in tapas, ceviches and mezzes. This culinary casbah is served in an exotic dual-level restaurant inspired by the rich culture along the ancient Silk Route. Upstairs in the lounge, reclining guests on richly upholstered beds are served on trays. Enjoy complex curries---Punjabi-style butter chicken, vindaloo prawns or sweet potato korma, and thin crispy pappadums---while sipping Champagnes from an extensive selection. Try the tagines: chicken with apricots, figs and pistachios or the more substantial lamb, tomato-based stew accented with dates and roasted garlic. For dessert, the baked cardamom yogurt is irresistible. The bar has an extensive selection of both new-world and old-world picks to quaff in quantity. Service is warm, discreet and attentive.

Sanafir Restaurant Review
by pyl on Wed Sep 24, 2008 12:23 pm
Although this restaurant may have a style of its own, its service isn't great to everyone. Despite the good atmosphere this restaurant has to offer, it is not acceptable for a business which is in the food industry to do these kind of things. But just to end this, overall, the food here is alright, not great, but only alright. It isn't as tasty as people say so. I'm not sure if it's because of everything that I've seen happened in this restaurant made the food bad or not, but I would definitely not recommend it to my friends.
