Quiet Chinese

As a frequent visitor of the Princessa the sister restaurant of Turandot Furmanova I found some pluses and some minuses about this nicely decorated and quiet restaurant. The hygien standarts are higher but lacks the taste and the portions sizes and the prices are higher by some 70%.

I've had Chinese in many places in the world, but the Turandot has consistently over the past 18+ years has delivered tasty and wonderful meals. No pork, btw, as it is Dungan.

There are several of these in town. Good food, good prices, but bear in mind the cooks are from Western China (and maybe Uighurs; some restaurants in the chain don't even carry pork dishes in the menu) so it can be rather different from Peking or Szechuan style.

Looks nice, but portions are small and are smaller if you order "to go", plus they include the price of paper/plastic boxes and utensils in your bill. The waitresses look very sad and kind of unhappy to see you. I think the whole concept of service is foreign to this restaurant. Don't dine there.

Tasty and cheap chineese cuisine! In the restaurant on Zharokov street also is a great interior, IMO! After 18.00 need to book a table by the telephone ))

Really like this restaurant! As mostly chinees restaurants it is fit to family dinner and big friend groups - they prepare big portions. So you can order a variety of dishes, that all could taste it. I really like that they can serve spicy and not spicy meals, as you wish! The staff is always nice. Life music, VIP room... More

"Turandot" is a chain of Chinese restaurants in Kazakhstan. You can find them in Almaty, Astana and Ust-Kamenogorsk. The one in Ust-Kamengorsk is quite good, really. Some minor flaws, though. Sometimes they don't have the courses mentioned in the menu. The taste of the food is original. First time I've been there about 2 years ago. Last time I've visited... More
