We were looking for a place to have lunch after a long morning exploring Bukhara, and saw this place - it seemed popular so we decided to try it. The interior is was quite basic, with tables and seats and not much in the way...More

One more foreigner who got caught in their scam whereby the prices on the menu are not final price. When the bill comes, they invent some "service" fees. Avoid at all costs, even if it looks nice. Shambles

A big restaurant that is mainly used by locals. There is no written menu and communication in English is very hard to impossible. Quality of food is also a lot less than other restaurants. The restaurant is located near the Bolo mosque and Arc fortress.

It was very busy, full of locals at 1pm but had tables around 2pm. It has a good reputation for its Uyghur meat marinaded in soy sauce with vegetables but they don't cook in single portions. We had 400 gr between 3 people which was...More

Went in for the solid, staple Uzbek dishes, which was exactly what we got. Tried a salad, soup and beef kebabs. All were decent in flavour and portions and prepared rather swiftly. All in all serves the regular dishes for a good price (located slightly...More

We very rarely spend more than $3-$4 per person on dinner. Usually this gets us some really good local eats. Not here, quite simply the worst food we have had in Central Asia. The salad was dirty (earthy taste), the somsa seemingly microwaved and soup...More
