Visited recently for a lunch time and we really enjoyed the atmosphere, ambience of the place. Decor and staff uniform are perfectly matching with the theme of the restaurant. Food are delicious, portions are well presented, not expensive and very tasty. Reservation no

I should say that after visiting this chain's locations numerous times on our last visit four years ago, I was rather disappointed revisiting it recently. I'm not sure what it was, maybe only the main location is good, or the whole chain went down in quality. First of...all, many items were not available. I was outright disappointed to hear they don't have Persian Rayhan basil airan beverage I've been craving for years, literally. I was expecting fresh hot samosa from a tandyr oven, but what we got, and I might be wrong, tasted like something reheated. The signature pilaff was not available, and we went for one with brown rice and barberry. To our great disappointment, it was rather dry and bland. But the greatest displeasure came from the dish I was expecting the most – Beshbarmak. Firstly, it was bland. But horsemeat kazy was an absolute letdown. As you probably know, kazy is made from fatty solid strips of meat seasoned and stuffed into a horse casing. Kazy we got here had a texture and form of regular sausage. Like if the meat was ground and then stuffed into a casing. It tasted bizarre. From all housemade liqueurs, only the raspberry was available, but it was pretty good. Basically, what happened here is that my return to a glorious Central Asian cuisine was ruined, and that experience left a bitter aftertaste.  More

Tubeteika is a right place for Central Asia cuisine fans. Tasty pilaf, lamb, fresh vegetable, and of course, Uzbek tea.

Absolute top. Building ist nice but nothing very special. Service is professional, quiet but fast and nice. The food was just gorgeous. Soup with small dumplings was unbelievable. All together a real nice experience. Good for business and also family. Main thing is the quality...of the kitchen.More

Delicious Central Asian cuisine. Nice traditional decoration and a huge selection of national dishes and shashliks. The food is delicious. The service could be improved though.

Overall, this is an Uzbek cuisine but they have dishes from all over the Central Asia and maybe beyond. To me, their spices are more acceptable than those I tasted in China and South Korea. The dishes are pretty big, I would not order more...than one for myself.More

Great food and nice atmosphere. Best lamb shashlik in Almaty. Really tasty eggplant salad and good plov. I've been eating here for years. Really is better, than some of the newer Central Asian cafes.

Good food served by a friendly staff. The restaurant was clean, with a comfortable atmosphere. For me, the music was too loud and distracting, making my business dinner difficult. Nice restaurant for a local experience, unfortunately not for business.

Great restaurant with a variety of traditional local dishes. Three types of plov, samsa, baursaki, etc. Nice atmosphere, decorations, and more than moderate prices. Definitely a place to visit while in Almaty.
