Pleasant atmosphere, excellent food

This small restaurant is quaint (max number of seats around 40 I think0 and pleasant to be in. The food choices were excellent, and all of good quality, and the service was helpful and very good. There was a good range of cocktails and various spirits to choose from but limited wine. The menu... read more

We had lunch here as part of a group tour of 13 people. Staff was incompetent in taking orders and delivering food. Dishes delivered from 1 hour to 3 hours after taking orders. Last orders of 3 pumpkin soups brought out were inedible! They apparently ran out of this soup so watered down what they had left! Inexcusable!!!!!

Being a customer since the opening of the restaurant about five years ago I appreciate the good price for value meals in a nice atmosphere. Damira, the owner, has trained and is supervising herself the kitchen staff and takes even over as cook if her high standards are not fully observed. The Vostok or Eastern part of the menu is...

Good place, very comfy. When I went there, it was empty - not a single customer, and it was 6 p.m already. I've had the greek salad and a grilled chicken breast. I also ordered freshly squeezed orange juice, but they ran out of it, so I've had a glass of water.

This is "East/West" and has a nice menu selection, good food preparation, and nice small restaurant ambience. Food choices reflect the name. Drink choices are more standard but still varied. Enjoy a nice breakfast, lunch, or dinner or delivery if you prefer to stay in your hotel or home.

I've been there 3 times with my foreign friends and none of us was ever dissappointed with this place. It is a good start for learning Kyrgyz cuisine, culture and hospitality. Tasty home style food, clean and nicely designed restaurant, staff is friendly and speaks English.

Very decent establishment. Friendly staff able to help when foreigner is at a loss over menu. I'd say good place to try local cuisine. Solyanka soup was exactly what I needed in the cold evening.

If you're looking for an authentic place where you can find traditional Kyrgyz food, then you have to remember that this place is targeted at foreigners. Therefore, they accept credit/debit cards. The quality of service is not according to high prices they offer for meals, nor does the quality of food stand out.

We discovered this little gem a while ago but I don't like to write reviews until I have been to a restaurant several times to make sure it is consistently good! We used to go for breakfast as well as lunch and dinner and now I think its just open for lunch and dinner. The menu is in both russian... More
