Good traditional foods from Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan

Service is very nice and polite and ambience of the place was themed and contained many traditional artifacts. Shashlik was very tasty but portions were small for the price, wine expect to pay 10,000 KZT a bottle and up.

I do think that it is the best restaurant for foreigners to visit. However the cuisine is not pure Kazakh but more of a Uzbek. Still they do have show program at night and in summer nights you better book in advance. Not in a walking distance from the city center, however it will worth it.

It's a traditional Kazakh cusine. There was no special event when I'm there but normally there are some shows. Mantı, sashlik chiborek are favorites.

Entertaining dancing, good Uzbek food make this a great venue for bringing visitors to, to give a flavour of Central Asia. Worth booking in advance for good table to watch dancers.

Alasha is one of rare venues where you get live evening entertainment. Traditional Uzbek, Kazakh dancing show starts at 20.45, last for about an hour with belly dancers' performance at the end. Performance wary between winter and summer, summer performance is better. Food is overpriced for traditional Uzbek and Kazakh dishes. Service is good, but can get slower during rush... More

The place has really tasty shahliks, I really enjoyed them there. Some other friends did order manty, but it wasn't great. One of the few downsides is that the music inside the place is really loud so its hard to hear your frirnds next to you. I don't know why thry require 3 electric guitars in that small dining area...

I think many of the negative reviews are unfair -- or at least not reflective of my experience. The decor and ambiance was very enjoyable (I cannot say if it was authentic or not). The service was excellent and professional and the food was fine. The entertainment was good -- the band did not pretend to be authentic -- and... More
