Caravan is a decent place in Chisinau. Probably the finest dinner you can get in town, but reasonable. Barbecue and Central Asian inspired cuisine. Atmosphere arguably more suitable in winter/ cold days and for small groups (up to 8)

We happened to walk by and went in for dinner since it looked nice. Good service with English-speaking staff but few vegetarian options (but what I got tasted great). Cash only.

This was my first time having Uzbek food. The prices were a little high and the service was ok, but the food was amazing! In addition, it is a really unique atmosphere, quite the experience in Moldova.

This place serves the most tender lamb I have ever eaten. Incredible dolma as well. Pricey for Chisinau, but worth it. My colleagues had the rabbit and the veal shaslik and both loved it. Very cool interior.

I loved this place- partly for the Ambience and decor and largely for the food. The chiffony draped tents over the large tables are fun. Who doesn't like having their own private tent?

I had the lamb and potatoes and, while a simple dish, the lamb was cooked perfectly and the potatoes where not bland. Service was good and it appeared to be a very popular spot for dates. Reasonably priced as well.

We visited the restaurant on our first night in the city and haven't had a better meal here. I wish I had gone back again to be honest. I definitely recommend the rolled beef starters.Delicious!! Great wine too.
