“Excellent plov, location a bit off”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2014

A simple local meal, yet so tasty. You get to hang out with the locals. The location is a bit off though. When I visited, I had no idea how to order or where to eat, there seemed to be total chaos. Yet a two students helped me and invited me to their table. The food here is delicious, one of the best I tasted in Uzbekistan. In other cities they will say they have the best plov, but it is here that you get it.

“Great plov, great atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2014

If you eat plov only once in Uzbekistan, this should be it. Self service, interesting to see how plov is actually made. Unprecedented trust when paying.

“Real Plov”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2014

A must-go, must-eat! Wonderful Plov. No one speaks English, tough...The hall is very hge, and they often host Marriage parties. Plov is cooked outside the restaurant, at the traditional way.

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2014 via mobile

Juicy plov with raisins, pumpkin, chickpeas and cumin. I had mine without the meat and eggs and it was lovely all the same. My partner had the full version and loved it too. It is however very similar to the plov you get elsewhere but totally worth to have a meal there.

“The Plov Feast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2014

The great place to try authentic Uzbek plovs in different varieties. This is the place where people come to eat only plov, so do not even think ordering anything else. The food is delicious and not pricy at all. You will be surprised to get excellent meal for less than 5 dollars. Regular portion might be too big for average Westerner, so would recommend ordering half a portion.
