Dining at Zheruik - true Kazakh food and very good!

I enjoyed my food in Zheruik in Almaty few times this year. I had a very tasty Beshbarmak (national dish made of meat and pasta like lazania blades cooked in bouillon) and not bad kuyrdak (also a national dish). I was surprised how good was the beshbarmak because I always said that you only can... read more

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. The beshbarmak didn't taste almost anything and we had to throw in loads of salt and pepper to... More

I had my first dinner in Almaty at Zheruik and it was a great experience. I absolutely wanted to taste local food and the staff at Rixos where I was staying recommended Zheruik. The location is very convenient, 1 minute away from the Rixos, on the same street. The staff at Zheruik was super helpful and recommended a few local... More

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.
