Just finished dinner at this very local and authentic place. The menu was unreadable to me but I just pointed to the other guests' choices and the cute waitress understood me easily. Started with a soup and finished with kind of spaghetti with meat and peppers. The tiny chewing gum that came with the bill just made my day.

You shouldn't consider this place if you are looking for a cosy or warmly decorated restaurant because the decoration is very... former Soviet, the lights are bright but I do feel like I have been to Bishkek now.

this place is always busy because the food is good. Many people come here inspite of the discomfort of waiting in line to get a table. there are many places in town who offer meals for the same price but is not as tasty. for a meal for two usually i spend about $6-7 USD.

This place was delicious. The Manty was incredible. I also had Beef Strogonoff which was also amazing. My girlfriend had the carrot salad and Blini and said they were amazing. I was to busy eating meat to try them. Also very reasonable prices. I will be eating there again!

There are 2 Faiza in Bishkek. I could not get a chance to visit the one in Mederova street. But the one in Jibek Joly i would highly recommend. Nice decor, Good and attentive stuff. Only thing they need to hire some English speaking stuff

Faiza on the Mederova street is better than Faiza on the Jibek Jolu street.
You can eat tasty national (Uighur) food at a reasonable price.
Service is quite good. Waitresses wear headscarves. One waitress brings food, another takes away dirty dishes. It is hygienically.
The disadvantage: too crowdy. So many people are waiting for their turn to eat. All of them are looking for a free table. So many people are looking at you, while you are eating. It distracts. When there is an empty seat at your table, be ready to eat with someone.
Moreover, there are a lot of families with children. It is kind of noisy place.
If you are not going to eat there, you can order takeaway. There is a separate place to order. But you also have to stand in a queue.
