Very authentic place with delicious dishes. If you want most tasty plov then come here at about lunch time. Regular visits for a long time give me ground to tell that quality of service and cuisine is very high and stable. Very good place.

Nice food, sometimes a bit too salty. Big restaurant, sometimes very crowded. Helpful staff. They offer a menu in English although they basically do not speak. Generally recommended

They serve local dishes, kumys, shubat horse meat etc. I tried different dishes which are classical for me but here they prepared it in a local way using local horse meat, horse and camel milk.

Great variety of food from Central Asia, especially from Uzbekistan. All the things we have tasted were very good, the atmosphere is nice - although nobody is speaking a word in english - and prices are definitely affordable.

It was and still is a good traditional food – three of us were there at business dinner. Fresh, natural and expectedly – a little bit heavy meals – Plov, Liulya-Kebab and Shashlyk (lamb and chicken)... More

A few pieces of horseflesh sausage are placed on top of the dish. A bowl of broth with fresh greens aside. Beside beshbarmak I ordered a teapot with fresh apples and honey. Beshbarmak... More

We went there together with my boyfriend. We were waiting quite a long time for waiter to bring menu and get an order. Maybe, waiter was not in a good mood that day but we fell like we are nothing to him, even when he brought a check, he just threw it on our table. Overall, food was fine, chuchvara... More
