Surprising taste of home

Rather surprised to enter a Scottish themed pub complete with staff in kilts and whisky adverts on every wall. Warm welcome although we had no language in common. Menu is in English with a vast range of choice including haggis. Servings are adequate.

Ok this place has an atmosphere you will like, or not. The food and service is both excellent! It's a dark pub with simple benches and tables and darkly lit. So good for friends and drinking beer, maybe skip it for dates!

Stopped here for dinner last night. Friendly waiter, plenty to choose from on the menu. Fish and chips were good. Ribs were more like lamb chops but tasty! Good fresh food. Reasonably priced. Takes a while for the food to arrive but it was cooked well and hot. Interior a little dark for my liking. Coca cola was flat but... More

Waiters wear funny scotish gear but that's all, fake scotish! No english speaking.. beer not bad, but food wasn't good. My burguer was crazy overcooked! My coworkers salmon priceless.. Some plates arrived with 10 minutes diference.. Service is not profesional enough! Waitress took one extra beer that we didn't ask for, we tried to refuse it, she didn't care... Overpriced.... More

It was my second time tonight at Glen pub. Have to say that what comes to food it is the best pub -style pub in town - compared to Shakespeare and Dublin. Large portions of all kind of salads and good meet! Smoking is problem; why they allow it?

After testing many restaurants in Almaty over the last 7 years this is still one of the best places in Almaty to eat. The service is same as the food always very good and the food very reasonable priced. By theway they have the most spicy chicken curry in Almaty, not really authentic Indian but much better. I strongly recommend... More

This is a strange place, the staff wear full Scottish gear with Kilts and sporrans, my interpreter asked if all Scottish pubs were like this, I explained that sadly they were not. Beer was okay, but had forgotten how bad you smell when leaving a pub that allows smoking, just like the Uk in the bad old days. But do... More

Not bad pub food. Usually have live music at weekends. Decent atmosphere. Nothing special, but nothing dreadful.
