“up to par”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2012

Folks, familiar to Uzbek and Middle Asia cuisine should find this place satisfying. Food is top-notch, menu is rich, environment is remarkable. Being a frequent customer I have only one complaint - once having a dinner in a big company we were served some suspicious local spirit. Yet it happened just once and has never recurred. Recommended: Pilaf, cold snacks, grilled meat, Lagman (not a lag man). Pretty costly, but you won't be disappointed.

This Uzbek restaurant is a part of "Kozyrnaya Karta" network and you'll find the best plov (pilaf) here. Another gem of this outstanding restaurant is lamb dishes of Geissar breed lamb meat.

“Unusual experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2010

I agree with the previous review,the restaurant is amazing.The food we tried was very unusual for us and yet a change to typical pizza or steaks.They have their home made drinks too,don't miss! The design,music,staff clothes was oriental,so the atmosphere was like if we were in Tashkent!The only minus is that the place is a bit out of the centre,but it's not hard to find at all!
