My complaint is about the a restuarant called Ayquosd (I think I have spelt it right). The waiter told me there is nothing available except beef or chicken burger. He charged me in Advance and said cash only. 55manat for one burger. While I am waiting for my burger, others are being served all kinds of food from the menu. This is how tourists are treated. I have seen scams but I could never imagine one happen to me at an airport. Later another customer at the restaurant told me that in the menu it is 13 manat for locals. For such scams to happen most people responsible at the airport must be on it.
