This is one of my favorite restaurants in Bangalore. Despite of being a vegetarian, I go to this restaurant very often. I love the Soups(Tamater Shorba), Veg Starters (Paneer and Veg Kebabs) and if appetite permits, the Veg Biryani!

I was in Bangalore for 2 weeks and was reviewing Zomato's best Briyani places. I found Samarkand and was not let down. I really enjoyed the ambience. I like he tables that were made to look like they had tree bark and the servers dressed as warriors. I had the mutton Briyani (I don't remember he specific name). It came... More

We enjoyed our dinner here -- a good selection of meat and vegetarian dishes, hot from the grill. And that was just for starters! The restaurant is designed with little nooks and corners so that you have a sense of privacy wherever you sit.

The BJN Group doesn't mess around. Samarkhand has maintained its high quality of food and service over the years. We had tandoori tomatar shorba, shikari tangri, dal afghani, mutton dum biryani, naan and roti. Everything was tasty and good. Service was efficient and friendly. It is expensive, but then they have maintained their high standards, so you get what you... More

The tables were closely spaced, the room dark and smoke filled, and jam packed - making it claustrophobic. The food was just average - there... More
