CULINARY COUP . . .
Hidden Dining Treasure in Agoura Hills
Lugman Barwari, Owner Niroj
What a delightful surprise to spend an amazing afternoon learning about Kurdish cuisine at Niroj in Agoura Hills from owner Luqman Barwari
. Lugman and his staff work with local growers to provide the finest in produce, along with fine meats to create authntic Kurdish dishes. We were all astounded by the home-made nan, lavosh and breads served fresh from Lugman's ovens. The mezze platter was one of the most versatile, colorful and fantastic I have ever tasted. These dishes are slightly familiar in a typical middle eastern sense, but Kurdish cuisine has specialties that are uniquely different than anything any of our group had tasted previously.
My favorite surprise was the Delightful Dew (yogurt drink) that was sweet, salty and delicious. This authentic beverage combines ice, yogurt, mint, salt and honey; really delicious! I will order this again as soon as possible!
Notable entrees at Niroj included Riha chicken, Mele Gej, and lamb Tawe. The dishes were all flavorful with tender chicken and meat. The kibob of shrimp and beef melted in the mouth, and the lentel soup, rice, spinach and vegetable dishes were very flavorful. Niroj serves a buffet each day for lunch that changes often and offers a varied collection of their delicious Kurdish favorites.
The main dining room is perfect for lunch or dinner, and live entertainment is available for special events. The lounge is decorated with imported tables and art, and is a fabulous spot to enjoy appetizers and cocktails befor dinner, or just relax on pillows and fill up on a variety of magical small plates with outstanding breads.
Their wine menu offers wine from Turkey, Armenia, California and Lebanon, along with and imported beers. Sinful endings include a collection of wonderful desserts to enjoy with Kurdish coffee or tea.
Do treat yourself, friends and family to a delightful experience of Kurdish cusine at this charming hidden venue in Agoura, where service and kindness is number one, and the dishes are outstanding at reasonable prices.
