We visited this restaurant on a Saturday evening and were greeted by a friendly English-speaking woman in traditional clothes, who showed us to our table. Unfortunately she then returned to the entrance and we got an impersonal waiter who didn't speak English.

This used to be a place which is where locals would bring their foreign friends to try local food. This means nice interior, big portions and high sticker price. Local food is often made with sheep meat, which is fatty, and thus, cools very quickly (and horse meat, which tastes great but may not be acceptable for some).

This is the place to go to try Kazakh national cuisine: beshpaak, kuyrdak and baursak! The food is Kazakh, not Russian as categorized here.
