We had lunch here on our first day in Kyrghystan. We were impressed by the spaciousness of the restaurant and the décor. It is filled with light. We ordered traditional Kyrgyz food - noodles and salads. The noodles were delicious and the salads were made with fresh ingredients. We had a pleasant lunch and very nice introduction to Kyrgyz food.

Really cool place with refreshing vaporisation of water above your head to cool down. Friendly waiters and excellent food, Western and local food. Definately worth a visit.

Nice cozy place with a lot of options to seat indoor or outdoor. Foreign tourists oriented, food is ok.... It is better to eat where most of the locals eat...

On a very hot weekday night we came here for dinner and greatly benefitted from, not only the good meal, but also from the very welcome air conditioning. Two of us had laghman noodles with a selection of sauces (as depicted in the top of the page of the English-language menu). The third member of our party had lamb shashlyk... More

There is a variety of seating; outdoors, inside and upstairs. The staff are attentive and eager to please especially those of us who are foreigners. English menu is available. The selection is wide and offers many types of cuisine. The quality was high and the dishes we selected were delicious. Portions were large. The meal represented good value.

It's a contraversive kitchy place. :)) but, it's nice you can choose from the kitch interiors for special occasions to the cosy, comfortable places on the upper deck. Or, if you come for a quick lunch or beer, you can stay at the terrace. The staff is very receptive and friendly. The food is good, but not great. The prices... More

The atmosphere is kitsch but cosy. The service could be better but they do have English menu. Kebab was quite taste but chicken not really. Average it is.

One hears a lot about Arzu when in Bishkek but the experience is quite disappointing. The decor and color scheme is vibrant and aesthetically pleasing but it is spoilt by the lacklustre service and food. Many items on the menu were not available and of the things we ordered many wrong items were brought in which we had to eat... More

A nice place if you want to have some local cuisine, but stuff is really unnattentive. They sometimes forget you are there and waiters change frequently, i guess they are just not investing in the human resources. And never try their pizza, it's overpriced and no good.

My partner and I came here in June and sat upstairs on the outside deck above the fountain. It's a great place to try some local food if you're not from Kyrgyzstan as it has a semi-English menu but doesn't feel like it caters specifically to tourists. The boorsook (small puffy fried rolls) and boso lagman (noodles with beef) were... More
