“OK food but internet can be very slow!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2012

Not a bad menu and the coffee is ok. Good for brunch on the week end. But the wifi here is very slow so if you want to work I suggest you go somewhere else!!!!
They often have good exhibitions of pictures, photos etc.

“A refuge”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2012

If you happen to be in Dushanbe and want for just a moment to forget where you are, then seek out Le Grande Dame of Dushanbe. The restaurant is located in a quiet corner of Dushanbe, the design and setting of the restaurant is very different from the other popular restaurants in Dushanbe, it exudes a more Victorian ambience. Its got glass panels up front with a quaint porch with wooden floors. The restaurant offers quite a variety of dishes. If you are craving for crepe, this is the place. The vegetarian quiche I had was delicious and the crepe for dessert and the coffee were just wonderful. Yes, for a moment I forgot I was in Tajikistan.

Good quality international style food with puddings that excelled! Service was prompt and attentive and smiling staff were willing to please at all times. Variations to dishes, when requested, were met without problem.

“Good food, quiet, delicious desserts”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2012

La Grand Dame has very good food - and also desserts. Service is attentive, but food comes slowly (made/heated fresh to order). Place is quiet and clean -and non-smoking inside!
