food was ok, but if you wish to visit toilet, that's really funny, you have to go outside, the toilets are outside

I came here for lunch and a bit of respite from a hot city day. The seats are very comfortable and I had a great view to watch the city to by from. There are English menus, although I didn't really know what many things were so just point at something! Friendly staff and fast service.

It's not a hygienic place and dirty. The service is too slow. The crew don't care about the customers enough...

Busy eatery and good quality Barbe-cue shashliks Central Asian style and Mante (Juicy meat dumplings). Service is OK, could be better. Prices a bit on higher side.

This place used to be much better. It offer authentic food in the heart of Bishkek, but the quality has gone down a bit. Given the competition at Navat and Bukhara, I hope they will improve again. Though, fried lagman is delicious here!

Went there with some international guests at 8pm expecting to have a good dinner experience. We sat down, ordered tea, and then were told that they didn't have plov, they didn't have lagman, they didn't have manti, they didn't have this, they didn't have that. Each time we tried to order one of these things they said "ok" and then... More
