English Irish Expat Pub run by a Indian !

It is what it is , a good pub , with well kept beer and amazing curries. It is one of the busiest expat places , I have been there at least once on my recent trips to Almaty and I have to say I am looking forward to going back for another curry soon !

In case you'd like to take the rest from Kazakhstan, go to The Shakespeare's pub. European/British style and great food from all around the world. Worth visiting!

Good pub and frequented by the "Brits" especially on Friday and Saturday nights. I was especially impressed by the kitchen; which remained open despite my late evening booking. Typical pub fare and freshly cooked to order. I recommend the cheeseburger and chips; a real treat! Attentive; and plentiful staff. Owner has a "vice like" grip when he shakes hands beware!

It's a pretty average place to visit, nothing really all that special about it except the prices which are pretty high. Not much of an atmosphere the night I went, a few locals and friendly ladies offering massage. I was a bit homesick so popped in for steak pie and mash which was out the freezer and a bit generic....

The pub is located at a very good location. Nice food and good service. Lot of expatriates or foreigners hang out over here. Seems to be an expats' favorite place. Sam, the owner, is a jolly good fellow.

Great curries and burgers, very generous portions though not cheap. Good service. Lively but cosy atmosphere. Friendly owner eager to please.

Been only twice...both times service and food was great . 2 beers and a curry was 4000. Needs a repaint and tidy up and the extended area off the bar feels soleless. Would love to know the story about the owners as one reviewer hinted at dastardly dealings?

I have heard about this Pub from a friend and decided to have an experience of it on an weekend. I visited the Pub with a friend last week and my experience is exhilrating.

Delicious indian food, good beer Bad service, rough and cheating waitress :( Many tables were reserved and we had to sit at the bar. But even after 1 hour nobody never came to reserved tables.
