When a friend told me "we're going to eat Indian at the Shakespeare" I was puzzled. Then it seems that it's an open secret: the put features an Indian chef and Indian cuisine is indeed fine. My chicken korma was dry (so actually the sauce was better than the chicken itself) but pakora was good and my friend's meal was... More

Went here to watch Premier League. Drink prices aren't that cheap and at first we were told we had to sit in another room as all tables in front of screens reserved. Of course no one turned up for their reserved tables so we were allowed to sit there. Beers were advertised as pints but most were smaller than pints... More

I wasn't expecting to eat amazing Indian food at a pub but I did here. They had a great selection of beer on draft and the Indian Food was spicy and delicious. I would recommend this to anyone.

After living in London, I missed chicken tikka masala until I found this place! Best place for English Indian food and watching football!

Nice food with the best curries in almaty. A welcoming place within a mix of locals and expats. I find the seating very uncomfortable and not suitable for young children as everything is centred around very tall tables and chairs. That saying the outside area does have lower level seating in the summer. There is wifi , an English menu... More

This is a very cool place full of expats. The beer (especially the local brew) is amazing and the service was top notch.

Good selection of beers and wines. Staff are friendly and usually smiling. Good mix of nationalities frequent the pub. Food was good on the two occasions I have eaten there.
