We like this place. Shade, free wifi (hence the review) smiley faces and a proper toilet with a sink and everything! To be honest, Khiva is so lovely it would be hard to go wrong here.

We liked the typical Uzbek food at this place in the midst of Old town Khiva, of course with green tea. Got good service and modest prices.

The food is good, but the lack of prices for soft drinks is their scam. Even when you ask them how much it is, they will bring you a smaller bottle and charge you for the big one. Also: hardly any meat in the meat dishes.

It was the first meal we eat in Uzbekistan and it wasn't bad. But,looking back, the quality of the food it is not near as good as the rest of the meals we did in the country. I wouldn't go back and I wouldn't recommend it. Not bad, not good either.

I loved the readable menu and the excellent food, but there was a big tour group there and the service was a bit slow. I found it quite acceptable, but someone else could mind. The quality of the food was excellent and the Bir Gumbaz probably deserves it's top billing among Khivan restaurants.

I came here twice, on two consecutive cold days. The food is good, and certainly better than I have had tasted in other restaurants. The ladies running the place are cheerful and the service is pretty quick. A heater would greatly enhance the experience - especially in Autumn!

Frankly speaking, I'm highly surprised that this place is so high up on the ranking at TripAdvisor. The food is overpriced and bland (about 4x the normal price for tea and 8x the normal price for bread) and the waitress lied to us and charged us a double portion as she claimed that our meals had been larger than usually...
