“Good food in a nice setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

We walked by this restaurant a couple of times before we ate there. The setting is lovely, with seating indoors and out (we sat outside). The manty (steamed dumplings) were some of the nicest we've ever had—and we've travelled fairly extensively in the Stans. The biggest bonus was the sour cream on the side. It really was the best sour cream I've ever tasted.
Also had a Kyrgyz stew, which was good, but not amazing. So order the manty, you'll love it!

“Good ethnic alternative”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

We stumbled upon this Uzbek restaurant which is situated behind the Circus and within walking distance of the centre of Bishkek. Outside appearance deceives and the interior is nicely done to provide a more Uzbek feel.

The food is similar to Kyrgyz but with different flavours and a couple of nice meat dishes that we haven't experienced before. Menus are unfortunately only in Russian but our waitress had some English so she was able to provide some description of the dishes and give advice. Service was quite fast and although they said that there would be a 35 minute wait for the tandoori dish, it came in less time (unusual!).
