I agree totally with earlier reviews tha the atmosphere is excellent and that is the real reason you should visit this restaurant. Service is also good, attentive, discreet and most speak good English if you are limited in Russian or Romanian. The food is good but if you are coming for real authentic Uzbek food and have had it before,... More

Caravan serves delicious tea in a traditional Uzbek way with oriental sweets. There is a fantastic grill menu. The staff is very friendly and the atmosphere is great! Baclava needs improvement.

I had dinnerwith two friends at this uzbek restaurant. The traditional dishes are amazing! We enjoyed both the food and the drinks (mainly vodka). I strongly recommend the dolma, kazan-kebab and the uzbek rice. Vodka would be highly appreciated with pickles and traditional uzbek bread. if you are more than 4, ask for the round table (as you enter, to... More

A local friend had recommended this place, so the expectations were high. The food was fine but nothing special, but the wine the waiter recommended was good. We had a good night there, but we will not come back.

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...

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.
