Samarkand is for special occasions. The food is awesome and the service is great. The prices are a bit expensive to make this a regular place to go to eat.

The food is to die for. Every item on the menu is awesome. The prices are a little on the higher side but totally worth it. Mind it, there is no cutlery used in the restaurants. So be prepared to dig into the yummy food and you won't stop licking your fingers. My favorite is the pomfret and the daal... More

One of the best family restaurants for North Indian Food. Being vegetarians, love the daal and crispy Tandoori Rotis.....place needs some makeover as some of the areas are shabby and does not give a nice feeling

We visited Samarkhand for a Birthday celebration. We were extremely happy with the food and service. The Galawati Kababs were excellent. So was the Gost ki Dum Biryani. We tried some vegetarian food also for a change. The Anjeer kababs were good. The stuffed parathas and Paneer Makhani were excellent. Very filling. Nice place to celebrate.

You can find a lot of good restaurants in Bangalore but this is hands down my favorite. I always tell coworkers to go here when traveling to Bangalore for work and I always go at least once every trip.
