After being in Almaty for 2 weeks, our group wanted some good old fashioned American Food. We were directed to here, and we went back often afterwards!!! Good food, nice service, and the kids loved it. Nice place to take family too and affordable for everyone! No picky eaters here!

I really like breakfasts at this place. And drinks at the end of the day. Want to make a funny present to your girlfriend or wife? Invite her there and order MEGA cocktail - long island ice tea or mohito or one of others. But definitely MEGA! But first you must be sure she realy realy like this cocktail. :)... More

I went to this restaurant a couple times during my recent rip to Almaty. I had no issues at all. The first time I had the BBQ ribs and honestly I found them very good. I had no issues with the service and the price was good enough for me to return. I'll go back.....

Took 2 hours to complete (at 3am in morn) and incomplete order. Avoided me on the phone, and i don't think that ill be getting the other part of it (just realized it now). The manager insults me over my grammar while I try to get the rest of it. I asked them to make ventilation shaft (just a hole)... More

I had breakfast at this restaurant. Tasty enough. Stake, eggs, coffee americano. Certainly more expensive than at similar restarauts in USA, but nevertheless, if you missed the North American cuisine, here you can meet quite similar dishes. If you do not speak Russian or Kazakh there you can be understood by waiters,

Ok, but can't say anything more than neutral. Food was eatable, service was quite helpful. Other than that, nothing outstanding.

The menu is pretty generic with american-inspired dishes and works probably for the most visitors. The hamburger was okay, but just okay with boring salad and dry bread. You will get much more value for your money at other local restaurants. The place was pretty clean overall and the service was all right, though they did not speak one word... More

In my previous review I couldn't write anything good and this review will be pretty much same. Prices are getting higher and the quality is not improving.

Food is wanna be American. Staff service is wanna be American. Interior is closest to American of options you can find in Almaty. Good for big groups, beer and chips. Business lunch poor and boring.
