"Wow, a chance to sample Uzbeki food", I thought. Walk in, nobody comes to greet, two women standing around looking bored. They say nothing. I give it a minute, they don't seem to care that there's a customer, so I had to walk up and...ask "are you open?" "Yeah". That's it. So I have to follow up with "well can I get dinner?" and get a seat. One of many available. I got the Chicken Somsa appetizer (it was OK, nothing memorable) and for entrée ordered the house dish "Osh", which turned out to be a very plain rice dish with some lamb and, they say there's some spices in there but none that I could discern. Very dry, no particular sauce involved, basically like what you might get at a very cheap cafeteria. The highlight of the meal was the small quail egg. Very disappointing all around, I can't think of a single thing I'd go back for.More

We started with fresh pita accompanied by (it seemed) cream cheese, which seemed odd but good. We ordered the Lamb Somsa starter (one for each of us), which was tasty. My entree was the lamb jiz-biz and my husband had the Osh specialty. The jiz-biz...had small pieces of lamb in a stew over rice. I thought the Osh plate was the better of the two, and the lamb was very tender. Overall, the food was good, but fell short of the accolades that other reviewers have given. We brought our own beverages and there was no corkage charge. Service was slow at the beginning but recovered. We drove a fair distance to get here, and while it was certainly a good dinner, I'm not sure we will make the drive again.More

Seriously impressed with this new up and coming restaurant. It was great to try a new cuisine but the spices and the freshness of the meat were evident. Everything was good - from the samosas, to the bread to the rice and the lamb. I’d...go back in a heartbeat. Only reason this wasn’t a 5/5 is the service from the servers was suspect as best.More

Nashville has many great restaurants, but OSH is a true standout! The food is over the top delicious, shockingly exceptional. The Sea Bass is incredible. The lamb chops are the best in town. OMG on their soups! Kabobs too! OSH is also ridiculously affordable. The...service is consistently good. They also honor their reservations, which I personally love. OSH is my very favorite restaurant in Nashville!!!More

We saw a news piece about Osh moving into what used to be House of Kabab on Thompson lane (also a haunt of ours who've moved close by). Apparently, Osh listed as number 9 on Yelps restaurant review of the top 100 in the nation....I have been to Osh twice this past week because the food here is so enchantingly good. For those a bit shy about Uzbek Cuisine, they have menus that describe what each dish is in details. If you are a lover of lamb dishes, you will not be disappointed. The Lamb Shashlik (grilled lamb on skewers) is outrageous tender. We explored Lamb Somsa which is an appetizer of pastry filled with lamb,spices and onions, and Ikra which is an eggplant spread. The Vinegret and Olivye salads were deliciously unique. A soup called "The Lagman" is a meal unto itself with beef and handled noodles. Perfect for a cold night like the one we went in on. The Uzbek bread is also so good, we are going to take an order of it home with us t o have the next day. We are committed to going back this coming week to try the many entrees they have listed...especially the six fish based entrees. Overall this is such a nice change and so delicious. They either have curious first timers or regular patrons in droves because the Friday night we went in there were at times many people in the lobby area waiting for tables to open. I am sure they were as delighted with their meals as we were. This is a gem and needs to be tried.More

Even though we live in Nashville, we were unaware of Osh until we read about its recent award by Yelp. We thought it sounded interesting and decided to try it. We arrived at 6 p.m. and were glad we had made a reservation! By the...time we left there were many waiting for tables. We were unsure what to order but after reading reviews and studying the menu we ordered the Uzbek bread, Osh, Iskender Kebab and black hot tea. Everything was delicious, especially the Iskender Kebab. We will definitely return and try some other dishes on the menu that sound wonderful. I'm sure their current state of being so busy is due to the Yelp award, but I hope this will result in a large number of regular customers for them. by the way, the service was efficient and very friendly too.More

The restaurant served good food for a great price. The service was also superb . But the one problem was that the location was in the geto and I’m pretty sure drug dealers were in site. Also only drugs no booze. (No liquor license)

In one of the most diverse neighborhoods in Nashville comes yet another hidden gem opened by entrepreneurial immigrants. After international spots like The Horn, Peachtree, and Eastern Peak had already blown my mind not far from OSH in South Nashville, the area added Nashville’s first...Uzbek restaurant. So what can you expect? Uzbekistan gained independence from the Soviet Union in 1991, bordered by five of the other six “stans” (all but Pakistan). The food is like a fusion of Middle Eastern and Greek, with Russian and Turkish influences and even some resemblance to Asian and African dishes, at least in this particular restaurant. This is truly emblematic of the melting pot of cultures in this neighborhood. The establishment is named after Osh, the national dish of the country also known as palov, essentially a giant rice pilaf with meat, carrots, and onions. Yup, they serve it here. And the glowing reviews by locals were literally blowing up on TripAdvisor, these nearly unanimous five-star ratings like I’d never seen before. I had to see it for myself! The menu offers a unique assortment of seven different soups and seven salads. Fresh pita triangles immediately arrive with a whipped cream cheese, but I also ordered an additional pita bread appetizer with hummus. This was an excellent start, because this is possibly the best hummus I’ve ever tasted outside of Israel! Devouring a ring of the freshest, softest bread, a national dish known as Uzbek bread, was equally wonderful. The menu lists three types of dumplings, four types of Jiz-Biz, six types of kabobs, lamb chops, and a shocking variety of fish including halibut, sea bass, rainbow trout, and branzino. With all these options, I decided on lamb kabobs, juicy and tender pieces of grilled lamb on three skewers with grilled eggplant, tomato, and cucumber. The side of sticky rice with onions was spectacular in its simplicity. But I would return for at least 10 other dishes! In fact, a Turkish man walked in while I was eating and told me it was the best salmon dish he’d eaten in the city! A Russian family seemed to approve of its authenticity too, excitedly conversing with the chef while I dusted off my rusty Russian comprehension from 30 years ago to sporadically translate their words in my head. When the owner passed my table and asked in broken English if I enjoyed the food, I responded in broken Russian enthusiastically, “очень хороший!” The service here is absolutely fabulous! I’ll also need to return for two of my favorite desserts in the world; baklava and napoleons!More
