We went to Bukhara as a large group and had a delicious meal. NBO has a remarkable collection of great Indian restaurants and Bukhara is one of the best. Good for vegetarians. If you have a large group, be sure to reserve a table in advance. Reasonable value for money. Open House a great alternative for exceptional food.

Restaurant is well designed. The prices are fair and food is good. They are located in a plaza so parking is shared with customers from the surrounding facilities. There was/ is a night club in the plaza............

We enjoyed a meal here with a party of 9. Varying dietary requirements, tastes...some like it real hot (me) as we enjoyed a nice evening on the patio.

I've been to Bukhara several times before,and enjoyed it thoroughly. However,this time I wasn't happy with because they decided to add the 16% vat to my bill? This is unfortunate because we really enjoyed our meal. I wish that I had complained.

We were not expecting much from Bukhara but a simple Indian meal but were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food, the modern clean decor and the wonderful attentive staff that made sure that our dietary needs were well taken care of.

Wonderful Indian restaurant with a lot of nice dishes, helpful staff and a good location. I normally spend around 24 hrs only before going on a safari and I'd definitely visit again for a lunch or dinner.
