Ambiance and Food Delight

I visited the place in April 2015 for lunch with guest from abroad. The ambiance is attractive and was point of attraction for my guest from Europe. Food is very delicious. I would recommend this as a must visit restaurant in Bangalore

I went to Samarkand with some of my colleagues who were raving about the place. This is a kind of theme restaurant. So, first of all, I didn't like the seating as it was too low for me. I was uncomfortable the whole time. The menu card is in the form of a newspaper and the beverage card is pasted... More

Great food but reserve your table well in advance... The price is very expensive but worth every penny for sure. If they at least do not revise the rates for sometime that may help.

It also has an open kitchen concept, where patrons can see the cooks at work making kebabs & rotis. They serve long bread sticks and a tasty cheese dip along with drinks. The service was a bit slow but the food was... More

Samarkand is one of the best place to eat, the menu is well explained and is of enough quantity when served. Food is cooked to the perfection and has nice aroma. The various sauces which comes along with the crisps before food is tasty and increase the appetite. As a norm you need to eat with your hand but if... More
