The only thing worthwhile about this place is the decor and the theme...otherwise, it is not worth wasting a meal here. The food was bland and cold and the service was subpar. There are much better restaurants to try in Bishkek such as Cafe Faiza or Mimino.

In America, this "American Style" Restaurant would rank WELL BELOW Ponderosa Steakhouse or Applebee's quality.

a few days ago i've notieced that this restaurant changes location, just about 150 meters in eastern direction, right on the same Toktogula street.
well first thing i loved when just came into restaurant its terrace, with big wide windows and great view on a Toktolgula street and kolobok shop, even though i wanted to stay on terrace, but however i went further and look up for the rest of the rooms, i can say, the big Obama portrait is still here, but the style and design of deocration changes, and they 've made it more bright and welcoming.
after i took my place on terrace, i've decided to try new horsemeat steak,
it was really nice and tender, maybe in future i'll order it again.

The Obama Bar & Grille has an interesting mix of American food, but everything was just okay. Not bad, but nothing to write home about. I really got a kick out of the Obama decorations and pictures everywhere though. Makes one wonder what they'll do when Obama is no longer president.

Not bad service. Friendly staff. It can be counted as a TexMex, and as far as there is no good texmex in Bishkek, this has become one of my favourite places there. They have a good choice of steaks, lots of snakes and appetizers. The food is always fresh and delicious. The bar design is nice and comfy. Location is perfect. It's a must go place in Bishkek definitely.
