I really liked this little restaurant. Friendly and cheeky young waiters who liked to use their language skills in English and German. The menu is a variation of all the other restaurants in town when it comes to Uzbek food and the local Khiva dishes....More

We stopped here for dinner afzer visiting the city centre. Food was fine and it was possible to sit outside. The waiters were a bit confused as there were two large groups and they were somewhat understaffed.

We had great lunch outdoor under the tent and experienced some food we couldn't find else where during our trip thru Uzbekistan. Service could have been a bit more efficient but overall waiting time was reasonable as the place seems to be very popular. Prices...More

Pleasant out door venue but that’s the only positive. An inept group entertains and the food is worse than the amateur show. Most of the menu items were not available, the service was slow and the food, when delivered was subpar in all respects. It...More
