Lots of Chinese guests, often crowded (very unusual in an Almaty restaurant)
The Peking Duck is great (25 EUR, enough for two people), with the right sauce

Not a lot of places where you may simply not find a table. This one is the place where you ma stack in queue to get lunch or dinner.
Good quality and democratic prices.
Like it!
And be careful with your order - ask about a portions which normally huge!:-)

I've eaten here before and had good experiences, but the last time I ordered something from their vegetable section of the menu and got something with meat in it. After eating one and then realizing what it was, we called the waitress over, who didn't want to hear about it and couldn't understand why we, at the VERY least, shouldn't have to pay for it as it was under the vegetable section and not labeled that it had meat in it. No such luck and it ruined the meal for us (all strict vegetarians) and we'll never return as a result. But it is very popular and the prices are decent and the food is great.

one of the most convenient places in Almaty.
Chinese kitchen for good price. maybe interior (especially Princessa "1") isn't super sophisticated, nor new, nevertheless the food you can order is delicious!! :))
there are 3 restaurants of this "chain" (other once are @ Ablayhana/Mamietova as well as Kirova/Moulienova), but the 1st one on Gogola/Tolebaeva is the best one for sure!!!
dishes I would recommend are: P8 (lamb ribs), A24 ("sudak file in sweet & sour) & of course THE BEST PLATE EVER => B42 (pork in sweet & sour sauce)! ;)
if you will be willing to have a great bite for convenient price and you don't pay much attention to the interior - this is the right place to visit! ;)
