“Pleasant place”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

The nicest thing about the Shakespeare comes more from what it isn't: it isn't a rip- off! Nice food, generous portions, and foreign beers at (for Almaty) reasonable prices. One can well understand why so many foreigners go there. It's harder to understand why the more rip-off inclined competition can't grasp the benefits of the formula but goes on running nearly empty joints where the beer is twice the price.

“Tasty food”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

I have been there for lunch, we had to wait for our order quite enough time, but it was worth it. Classic Burgers, chicken wings, salmon sandvich were delicios, potato fries and chicken wings were tasty.Portions big enough.

“Too many expats...but atmospheric”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

Staff speaks good english, food is good (not great though), prices are bit high, but if you want to escape from Central Asia to Europe in Almaty, this is the place. Some faces are just too regular.

“One of the few authentic British pubs in Almaty”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

With good burgers, draft beer, large screens to watch sport events, and the best spicy curry in town (possible to take away or to have it delivered).

“OK ish”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

Now they have made the outside area partially enclosed and gloomy, you can enjoy second hand spoke outside as well.
Inside is awful if you are a non smoker, it pays to remember it is illegal to smoke inside a bar in Kazakhstan, totally ignored by the old overweight expatriates who think it is their god given right to spread their fumes.
Staff are pleasant but their are so many better places around town....
