This place definitely had some good plov! I would definitely recommend it to anybody who is in Tashkent. My friend and me both only speak English, and we still managed to get some plov and enjoy it. We just said "plov" over and over again until we were seated and served, it worked great.

It would definitely be easier if you spoke Russian or Uzbek though. We ended up with some random hard boiled eggs on our plate as well as what I believe was horse sausage. This is what you get when a server asks you several questions in Russian, and you just keep answering "yes." It was a great experience, though, and the food was pretty good. They are only open for lunch though! I believe they close at 3 daily.

A massive place for eating plov. You can try a piece of cured horsemeat if you wish. Tasty plov. A little crowded for me as the hall was full during the lunch hour I was there. So service was little slow since I was sitting on the top balcony of the hall. It has nice family atmosphere though could be a little noisy.

Good place to taste thise traditional food. And if you like it there are many other places to try. It tastes less like indian "biryani", but definitely better! Try with salads (esp.with tomato).

Nice place, common for many locals. Modest prices. Based close to subway station Shahrisron and TV tower. Dinner for two adults and three kids cost 55000sum. Not so clean. Service is quick.

If you're looking for the authentic Uzbek plov taste and experience in Tashkent, then Plov Centre is a must. Situated next to the Sports Centre and the TV Tower, it's not too difficult to find. It's best to go in the morning or early afternoon, partially because you'll be too full to move for a few hours, but also because that is when the best plov is available.
You can opt for plain or party plov, complete with horse meat and a quail's egg. The food is cheap, fresh and delicious. Tea, salad and lepyoshka are also available, and you can take away any plov you may not have managed to conquer.

The Plov Centre consists of a huge room, with a lot of tables and an interesting atmosphere. It's like being a guest at a stranger's wedding, but don't let that put you off. The plov is cooked outside in huge pans, and the service is quick.
