I discovered Sadu when visiting the Keruen shopping centre and decided to try it out on a Saturday evening in late April after a hard day walking round the sights in this fast-developing city. Located at the front of the shopping centre, large picture windows overlook the plaza of the Emerald Quarter. When it is warmer, it must be a nice view.
Despite warnings that it can be full at weekends Sadu had only a handful of diners. I had a choice of tables in the well furnished restaurant.
I chose veal tenderloin from the quite extensive menu, with a side order of fries, plus a glass of white wine.
The veal arrived quite a while later and appeared to have been freshly prepared which perhaps accounted for the slow delivery. In any event, some bruschetta had been brought as an appetiser on the house. Nice touch.
The veal was cooked expertly and had a rich mushroom sauce. It was tasty. The fries, despite probably being frozen, were good.
I rounded off my meal with a creme brulee with berries that was great.
Like most restaurants in the business quarter of this wind blown city, Sadu is not cheap. But the food appears to be reliable and the waiting staff understand basic English, which is useful if, like me, you have neither Kazakh or Russian!
I recommend Sadu and will return, should I travel to Astana in the future.
