“Nice experience”
Reviewed December 5, 2013

If you want to experience the culture of Central Asia, this is a place to visit. The food is good and the interiors are very well designed. The entertainment is provided in the evening- dancers and gymnasts and the overall atmosphere of the place is very pleasant. Definitely recommended place to visit in Almaty.

“Nice atmosphere, tasteless food”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

The atmosphere is nice, the food so so. I expected more, because I am a fan of Uzbek cuisine which is quite a refreshment from the bland Kazakh food, but my taste buds remained anything but thrilled.

The garden is beautiful and indoors too, very lively, with Uzbek traditional arts and crafts. A little on the pricey side, but then again, all Almaty restaurants are, except the local ashanas. On weekends there is live band that plays oriental music, it adds to the overall experience. But chances are there will be a wedding planned that blocks the restaurant for external visitors, so check in advance.

Staff speak English, which is also a great positive surprise.

“The show makes the experience”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

We were guests at this restaurant and the experience from the cuisine, show and the Hookah is not to be missed. You cannot avoid the horse as it was in nearly every dish that was offered. The food was tasty and we experienced camel milk for the first time (last). The show is spectacular and makes the whole experience. The staff was very attentive to our every need. Not to be missed if this is your first visit to Kazakhstan.
