I’d seen the reviews for this place and decided to leave work a few minutes early to go to this restaurant prior to my ice skating lesson. To start with, the staff looked a little confused that I was dining alone (I think being a...More

My husband and I went on a date and ate at Ruz Uz last night. I can’t say anything bad about the place, I just felt like every dish we had tasted the same. We had the blini and pirozhki for appetizers. They consist of...More

This was my first experience eating at a Russian/Uzbekistani restaurant, but I was surprised that I recognized several dishes. I ordered the Dolma, which I recognized from Greek/Mediterranean cuisine as grape leaves. These were a little different, served hot with beef inside. Delicious! I also...More

While visiting D.C. we purposefully sought out this restaurant as our daughter was born in Tashkent. The osh( plov), shasliik, tomato/cucumber salad and shurpa all authentic and tasty Uzbek food. We would like slightly larger portions and traditional Uzbek Nan would have been nice. A...More
