“Nothing extra ordinary”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2014

Its a Bar and Grill joint that seeks to offer you value for money stuff, priced towards lower end, but quality of steaks left much to be desired when we gave it a try! Drinks are OK and ambiance good.

“Good place in a heart of a city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2014

Obama restaurant is located in the city center, very close to touristic places of interest, business centers and trade malls. Comparing with other places in Bishkek Obama offers reasonable price, good quality of food and service. My most favourite dish is pizza, stuffed with cheese at the edges, love it! Also i enjoy drinking ginger tea. During the day Obama is a nice place for helding business meetings and having lunch. Business lunch menu is various with moderate pricing.

“Swankier than expected but surprisingly good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2014

We weren't sure what to expect when we entered and saw the white booths and glamorous decorations. But the staff were really welcoming, and the food was much bigger and better than they looked on the menu. Our favourite was the deluxe pizza, which came big and American-style, but with a floury, light dough that I can only guess is made with rice flour? Beer selection is pretty good. We'd definitely visit again!

“Big meals but no Mastercard”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2014

The pizza is great here and the Steaks are immense. The beer is cold and there is distinct differences between smoking and non smoking areas. It is frequented not just by expats and Europeans but locals. This was a good sign! When we tried to pay the bill we discovered that only Visa is accepted. This is not an unusual situation in Bishkek. MasterCard is used at certain cashpoints but you must look for the logo. Demir bank is the go to bank.
