Excellent food, friendly staff, easy to handle menu, reasonable prices, all in a lovely (and quiet)(and cool) place. Everything we tried was good, and because we stayed quite a while in Kashgar, we were able to eat here three times. The staff were particularly helpful...More

Imagine arriving in Kashgar, starving, after an 18-hour hard sleeper K-train ride...and, your kind-hearted Uyghur cab driver takes you to Altun Orda—an astonishingly gorgeous restaurant with an amazing menu. Our only dilemma was...what to order, since eyes were bigger than stomachs. A few bites into...More

We tried several places in Kashgar during our 4 day visit, and Altun Orda was the best. In particular, the meat pie was much better than the meat pie we tried at Eden Cafe. Prices were also better.

The interior is really something! Traveled from Beijing to Istanbul and this was the best restaurant we visited. Traditional Uiyer food and the best Plov! (Don't tell the Uzbeks) You can not leave Kashgar with out having a meal here.

The price is very reasonable. It was very busy. Somewhere in there, the system broke down. Ordered items did not arrive, many were inaccurate, staff overstretched and not responsive. The place was full, so there is no incentive to improve. A great disappointment. This place...More

We spent an evening there. Good decoration and good dishes. I think the idea to have to select menu on an ipad is wrong, impossible to remember where is a dish you like. Other suggestion about kebad: meat is too hard and it requires forks...More

The place is always full so best to reserve a table. The food is exceptionally good and not as greasy as some of the food this far west in China. The mint tea was wonderful and the kebabs were very good. Good selection of food
