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