The decor may be nice, but that is the only positive aspect I could find. The food tasted like a ready-to-eat meal bought from a cheap supermarket, and it sat in my stomach for the next few hours. Additionally, their mint tea was made with low quality tea, some mint leaves, and it tasted of lemon (??); when the waitress saw that I hadn't touched it, she asked where I was from, and then said "oh, that's why you didn't like it". I never knew that Italians are not supposed to know anything about tea. I simply happen to have a passion for tea and also good food, and I can talk you this: The Bazar is a place for tourists, not for foodies. If quality is what you are after, don't bother.
