“Very good Uzbek restaurant”
Reviewed August 28, 2014

Very good Uzbek restaurant in Riga. The interior is very cosy and atmosphere is like in Uzbekistan. Food is great also. I recommend this place for people who want to try something new or who like this tape of cuisine.

“Would not recommend..”
Reviewed August 28, 2014

We went there for dinner and ordered shashlik mix, some salat, adžika and so on.. Everything we got was just too simple. For the price I did expect more. I had a feeling, that they are tourist-oriented, and not the western one.. like trying to make an echo of Sovietic times.. So, I was dissapoinded.

“Delicious Uzebek Food Makes a Refreshing Change in Riga”
Reviewed August 20, 2014

My partner and I had been travelling through Estonia and then Latvia for a week and we wanted to eat something different from Baltic or neo-Nordic cusine that night. So we picked Uzbekistan Restaurant in Riga and boy was it a good choice!
The restaurant has both indoor and outdoor seating but we had to sit inside as the outdoors was already full when we got there. The décor inside had a traditional, if kitchy Uzbek feel but it made for a lovely atmosphere. The service was very good and our waiter spoke English well; so there was absolutely no problem with communication.
We ordered a fried pastry dish stuffed with minced meat for the starter along with a bowl of spicy soup noodles. The waiter informed us that we could order half portions of the soups which was perfect for us.
For the main course we had the mix grilled skewers and the portion was just right for 2 people. We also had a plate of the plov which was very good. For the desert we had baklava which was not bad either.
I would really recommend this restaurant if you are visiting Riga and want to try something different. It offers a unique atmosphere and a small glimpse into Uzbek cuisine.

“Good food, but….”
Reviewed July 17, 2014

A leap into the past (CCCP): that's the sensation I had dining in this restaurant. No smiles, surly servants. Good the food: ok the shashlyk, but worth mentioning the walnut cake "ESTERHAZY". Wines by the glass of poor quality. Right the prices.
