Great Experience

This was my first time having Uzbek food. The prices were a little high and the service was ok, but the food was amazing! In addition, it is a really unique atmosphere, quite the experience in Moldova.

This place serves the most tender lamb I have ever eaten. Incredible dolma as well. Pricey for Chisinau, but worth it. My colleagues had the rabbit and the veal shaslik and both loved it. Very cool interior.

I loved this place- partly for the Ambience and decor and largely for the food. The chiffony draped tents over the large tables are fun. Who doesn't like having their own private tent? The waiters are dressed in traditional costumes which give it an even more authentic touch . Anyone with epicurean curiosity will enjoy the variety of dishes. Not... More

I had the lamb and potatoes and, while a simple dish, the lamb was cooked perfectly and the potatoes where not bland. Service was good and it appeared to be a very popular spot for dates. Reasonably priced as well.

We visited the restaurant on our first night in the city and haven't had a better meal here. I wish I had gone back again to be honest. I definitely recommend the rolled beef starters.Delicious!! Great wine too.

The atmosphere of fabric draped booths lend an air of privacy. The lamb kebabs were tender and juicy. While the spice palette is quite different to the Southern Girl, the food was wonderful and not overpowering. The tea is excellent. We enjoyed some sort of pastry with a cherrry glaze that was served hot and delicious. Just make sure that... More

Second trip here. Good food. I recommend the manti and the lagman (main course dish). The plov was pretty good, though they didn't have the lamb one we wanted to order that night. Wine is reasonably priced here. Service was attentive. Was a bit warm and I just can't seem to get comfortable in their booths. Low tables with pillows... More

The place is very nice. The ambiance is conform with traditions of the Central Asia. The place offers a good variety of dishes. I would advise the "plov" tea with herbs and "non" (Uzbek food).

The food here is delicious. I've never had rabbit before and had the rabbit with tomatoes and onions and Uzbek spices - delicious! Also, you must try the tea!

This place has a unique style and very delicious Uzbek national food. The spirit of Middle Asia is definitely there. It's affordable, too.
