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

The Caravan is a great Uzbek restaurant that really complements Chisinau's restaurant scene. It's really unusual inside and provides for separate little dining alcoves. i had the chef's special plov which was excellent. the service was great and the restaurant is centrally located. i'd definitely go back again and would recommend for a business meal or social get together.

This is a good place to bring out of town guests in order to see something different, delicious and exotic. It isn't cheap but the food, service and ambiance are all great.

A very nice Restaurant with a cozy setting. Pillows everywhere, the servers were very attentive, and service in general made you feel like royalty. A very romantic place to take your significant other or impress her parents. The food was excellent.
