Good meals, vast portions and well prepared but the service could be better. Very good Chinese (former German) beer.

The place doesn't look Chinese at all, the design inside is very basic. They have an English menu which was good, we tried a variety of food(beef, chicken, fish, and bread). Nothing stands out to be honest, but the prices there are quite cheap.

I'm Chinese, and it was so great to find a good Chinese restaurant in Almaty! Princessa is really big, so you can always get a table there (unless they're holding a special event). The food is really good - tastes authentic. Also, if you go in a group and order a few dishes, when you divide the cost up, it's... More

I love going there with my family. The place with reasonable prices (which is unusual for Almaty) and good quality food. Book a table in advance - usually there is too crowded. Kirova/Moulienova restaurant has the better taste of the same meals, then in other Princess restaurant. Order everything, except Chinese duck (for it we go to another place, where... More

So very tasty that you forget the interior ;-) Packed with people because it is the best place for Chinese food in Almaty. The restaurant is very brightly lit but you will not notice because your taste buds are singing of joy! So very tasty. Service is quick, friendly and adequate. In hot periods they do not manage to keep... More

Princessa is the place to be when I am in Almati and want to stuff myself with no nonsense food without hurting the budget. Don't expect anything fancy and posh because there isn't, instead there are dishes full of flavor and taste with generous portions. Anybody who likes Chinese must visit this place. Go as early as possible or make... More
