“Good restaurant”
Reviewed January 26, 2011

This is good restaurant but you have to know what to order. If you don't - ask waiter, they are know. There really tasty salads achik-chuchuk and bakhor, good selection of soups and just great manti(dumplings) with sheep meat.

It's a little bit overpriced but good in general. Anyway you can always go to Pushka restaurant that just in front of this one.

“Oil with everything”
Reviewed October 30, 2010

Just been to Bukhara and I have to say although it looks the part with good decor and lighting, music thats not to intrusive, what are they doing with the main ingredient the food?
Everything ordered from egg plant to rice with vegetables and a chicken dish was swimming in oil. I have read another review that praised the use of spices in the cooking, well maybe the chef has changed or we just ordered the wrong dishes but the only hint of spice was the pepper you had to cover the food in to hide the taste of the oil
Very poor and definately overpriced best avoided

“affordability is relative”
Reviewed September 16, 2010

with average price for one dish in Kharkov restaurants 30-50 UAH, 80-100 UAH in Bukhara look a bit overpriced, you might think. The truth is that their food is worth the money you pay for it unlike many other places in Kharkov. In comparison with USA or European countries, prices are affordable. But taking into consideration average salary of $150 in Ukraine, $50 per person dinner is a bit expensive.

“Best restaurant in Kharkov”
Reviewed April 6, 2010

I've been to Kharkov a few times on business and tried many of the local places. This is my favorite restaurant in terms of food quality.

The food is Uzbek, it has a fun style and great service and is certainly one of the fanciest places in town. At the same time, the prices are not too bad, so it's affordable, too.

One of the things that I especially liked about the place is the spices used in the food. A lot of restaurants in Ukraine are very bland, because the local tastes tend toward low to no spices in their food.

During summer, the outdoor seating is also really nice.

If you in town, check this place out.
