Nice restaurant with traditional Uzbek kitchen in Lviv. There are many things to discover: new courses, uncommon atmosphere and traditional hospitality. From here begins your discovery to sunny Uzbekistan!

DISASTER. Food was not tasty. They used margarine instead of real oil. Food was cold. Samsa was cold and oily, unbeatable. Plov served in a tiny portion like a Mazzete. But no problem, since it was dry like a piece of wood. They put a...lemon inside in order to compensate the taste of the dried meat. Food was dull and disastrous. Keep away.More

My favourite place in Lviv for food. The restaurant is managed by a family that moved to the city from Uzbekistan. The atmosphere is fantastic, the food is delicious, the owners are really nice people. Highly recommend for anyone who wants to try new cuisine.

Very nice ambience. The booths upstairs make it a special experience. We are vegetarians and ordered beetroot salad and the pumpkin dumplings. Unfortunately they gave us the lamb ones but it was one of those lost in translation moments :) would go back

I took a group of ten there a few days ago. The service was excellent. The atmosphere so charming and unique and the food was very good. We tried the dumplings and Samsa as appetizers and most had some type of lamb dish which was...delicious. I lost the receipt and needed it for business purposes and they were able to email me one in the US. Very impressed.More

The restaurant is an amazing place. The inside looks nice and the food is amazing. Everything will be made fresh and quick. The menu is huge with a lot of traditional Uzbek food such as Plov. We ordered 2 starters and two mains, a bread...and two drinks. This was a total of 442 UAH (€16). For Western Europeans, this is an insane value for your money! We highly recommend the restaurant!More

This is an authentic and very cosy restaurant. For a very reasonable price we got a number of different dishes which we enjoyed very much. And probably the lamb with apricot takes the price as best dish. With the pleasant service and the price, the...authenticity it is simply a must try.More

The prices were a little high and the food was good but not mind-blowing. Everything else was amazing. Great service, great atmosphere, great menu selection. My girl absolutely loved it. Highly recommended for a date.
