Didn't eat here, couldn't get in, but hung around watching the scene while waiting for our driver. Even the so-called quiet section upstairs was noisy while the humongous downstairs dining room was a sight to behold. It could have passed for a loud, boisterous wedding...More

We had a decent meal with a really friendly guy serving who tried really hard despite the fact that could not speak great English. And it’s really cheap.

My friend and I ate lunch here twice because the salads were delicious. Can’t comment on the meat as we are vegetarians. The service was friendly and the space is bustling and the decor ‘quirky’. We sat outside which was very pleasant.

Great atmosphere on the downstairs terrace - local traditional musicians, traditional decor. Had some good food here & as I'm a veggie, that's hard to find in Uzbekistan.

We decided to come to this restaurant because it claims to have vegetarian options. Two dishes came with meat even if the description didn't have any meat mentioned. The English menu is badly translated and has no price. There are better options in Samarkand.
