Intro to Central Asian cuisine

Great introduction to Central Asia food, affordable price, and consistently good food and service! Highly recommend the uzbek plov, uzbek tchai, and tychiny, which is a thin bread with either cheese or potato layer inside. For dessert must try "chak-chak", fried dough with honey with raisins and... read more

I asked the traditional Kazakh food and the waitress recommended beshbarmak. It is a dish with boiled meat (lamb, beef or horseflesh) with boiled dough and onions. A few pieces of horseflesh sausage are placed on top of the dish. A bowl of broth with fresh greens aside. Beside beshbarmak I ordered a teapot with fresh apples and honey. Beshbarmak... More

We went there together with my boyfriend. We were waiting quite a long time for waiter to bring menu and get an order. Maybe, waiter was not in a good mood that day but we fell like we are nothing to him, even when he brought a check, he just threw it on our table. Overall, food was fine, chuchvara... More

Even thought I live in Almaty, I love to go to eat to this restaurant. The food is tasty and have a good choice of food also for foreigners.

I loved it all - the cheesy thin breads, the tashkent salad, the plov with horsemeat, the shashlik, and the manti. Ok, maybe the meat in the manti wasn't so great. But everything else made for my best meal in Almaty. Service was great, and the outdoor seating was a bonus.

Highly recommend the uzbek plov, uzbek tchai, and tychiny, which is a thin bread with either cheese or potato layer inside. For dessert must try "chak-chak", fried dough with honey with raisins and sometimes walnuts.

The Tiubiteyka is a chain for Kazakh, Uzbekh and Uigur food, featuring several restaurants throughout the city. We went to the one in Globus Mall (Abay and Auezov conjunction) and ordered some salads with meat, Lagman and Manty. The portions were of decent size and all dishes were deliciously seasoned. The atmosphere was nice. Not cosy, but pleasant. Being a... More

Visited restaurant near Dostyk Plaza shopping mall. Staff is ok, very quick service, very nice food, local cuisine. Great plov (rice with meat). Please try shubat - camel's milk. 300% better than yogurt. Only disadvantage - regular visitors, half has criminal look, which makes you feel little bit uncomfortable ;)

Decent Central Asian food, plov etc. I've been to both branches - they're both quite big, the one on Satpaev has a nice outdoor area for the Summer. Service is ok and prices also average. Good place to take guests/visitors to sample local food.

This restaurant has a friendly staff and a tasty food. A good location. I had a limited period of time to eat and they served me well. If they serve you with fruits remember that it is a sign of respect.

this is on of the 3 Tyubeteika restaurants in Almaty, all belong to the same chain. The other two is one on Abay Avenue within Globus Shopping Center, and third one on Dostyk Avenue above Satpaeva street. Great place for Uzbek traditional Plov (rice dish), shashlyki (kebabs), Samsa, achichuk (salad with fresh tomatoes and onions). Good service, great authentic Uzbek... More
