Great food, great atmosphere. Made to feel very welcome, we were a party of 8, and the owner Sam came over to chat, a good decent bloke. The curry is excellent, better than many a curry house back in the UK. Good prices too, try it you will not be disappointed!

Very good curry, fish and chips. Even have some American pub food such as burgers and pizza. If you are lucky, you will be there on a day when they have London Pride on tap! Only gripe is that the credit card terminal appears to never work - this is a major inconvenience as Almaty has developed enough in general... More

Had dinner here and the food was very good quality. Service was nice and the whole bar looks very good inside. Nice place to visit and wind down after a days work.

Loving that Shakespeare keeps its level from the very opening of the bar! Well done guys. In general nice choice of drinks and foods, cozy ambient and really good service.

Food was good and service was ok. I went there with friends for the "pub" experience in Almaty. More to my surprise was they had the English Premier League on a large screen TV and - for me - that was it. After having rather token sports on the hotel TV I was happy to have found this place.

This was my first visit to Almaty and myself and 3 colleagues were recommended to visit Shakespeare's Pub. What an excellent venue we discovered. We were greeted by friendly and efficient staff who were eager to ensure we had a great time, Although we arrived very late, just before midnight, we were treated to amazing food, very reasonably priced and...

Food is really nice, but staff is not really attentive to guests.prices are not expensive. Comfortable location. They don't have reservations on weekends. It's not really good.

Being very honest, as you may see from my previous reports I never liked this place soo much but visited from time to time as it is the only place to meet expat friends in the city. Neverless I got aware of a disgusting story about the owner which will make me never come back to this place again. As... More

Let's be honest, it is a pub with pub food and is popular with expat and local. There is no smoking inside any more, as that is the law in Kazakhstan. If you want to watch the 6 nations Rugby, or any other international rugby match, then it is likely to be on here. The English Premier league football is... More

Good bar, busy and a fun place. Went with a group which is great - it's not for romantic couple dining. All the food seemed good, good service and a pleasant place. Waitress was a sweetie! Worth a visit just for her; she had the ability to deal with the group, take the orders, deliver the dishes and be very... More
