Having eaten at this restaurant several times and really enjoyed the experience, I was disappointed by my latest visit. We asked for a dry white wine - the waiter didn't seem to know which one to recommend, and when he brought a bottle to try (already opened) it was lukewarm. We were told we still had to pay for it...

I spent a lovely evening at Caravan with a group of friends yesterday. The food and the environment were brilliant and we were all very impressed. The only complaint is that the women's toilets had some very fancy hats and costumes to try on which were missing from the men's toilets. Regardless it's a brilliant restaurant and I would highly...

Have eaten here twice with business colleagues, both times on the terrace so I can't speak for the interior. The service was good, and the food was delicious and fresh. The seasonings gave each dish a distinct flavor without being overpowering. Although Chisinau has a fairly good selection of restaurants, it's nice to see an original addition done well. The... More

Seemed a bit touristy, but didn't really mind. Each seating area is private and curtained which is nice. Dark in there lit with candles. The hooka/shisha smoking was fine but the cigarette smoking got to me. Still, everyone liked their food (I had excellent Lagma soup) and the ambiance better.

This is the nearest restaurant to hotel Leogrand. I ordered dumplings with lamb and plov with beef. The first one was amazing, but plov was definitely not the best one. I've also tries baklava which was fine.

I've stopped by this place three times in the recent weeks and the food and atmosphere here is pretty good! As far as the food, I usually have the lagman soup here and either lamb samsa or plov. Highly recommend this place!!

This is an excellent place for friends or couples to have aq quiet evening. Most tables have a privacy curtain. The food is excellent, though the prices are a bit on the heavy side.

Good exotic place. Reasonable food, but for the price I've paid would expect a bit more. Maybe it was a rare case, but I was annoyed that they didn't have two dishes I've picked from the menu and ended up with having the third most preferred one.

Overall, rather meh. The taste of the plov is about the same level as any other restaurant in the area but at a higher price.

Maybe I had high expectations as I had a great experience in Moscow some time ago, but nevertheless I believe this was nothing special and the food was of average quality, taste and presentation. We had a soup which was salty, chicken sashlik - ok, but not impressive and some starters (samosa with lamb and a mixed salad) which were... More
