“Lebanese Cuisine in Almaty”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

Pretty nice venue. The service is wonderful. I can not say something about their treatment to foreigners, due to I'm local, but I think that service does not depend on nationality. Food is awesome. Quite expensive, but worth it.

“One of the best restaurants in Almaty”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

This place offers a fine selection of Middle Eastern cuisine. Besides the classical meze (like Mutabbal, Hummus, Falafel or Dolma) they also offer mainly meat-based main dishes. The dishes, especially the salads, are fresh and very tasty. Services is calm, nice and quick. Bread is freshly baked and arrives warm at the place. Prices are higher than Almaty average but totally worth it. One of the best picks in town...

“NICE RESTAURANT AND EXCELLENT FOOD”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

Almaty is the city of restaurants and cafes. I have never seen so many fantastically designed and furnished restaurants as in Kazakhstan.

Safran, is an North African Arab restaurant located in prestigious Dostyk Avenue.crossing Boganbi Batyra street

It.s one of the top restaurant where in medium budget you can eat one of the classic arab, western and Kazakh cuisines. The usual per head bill would hovering around 30 to 40 USD.

If you are in Almaty and living near the Dostyk avenue must visit this place and enjoy the good food in an excellent environment.

“Disappointed”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

The ambience is great but the food quality declined. The service during lunch time can be annoyingly slow.

Beautiful restaurant and great food. In summertime the terrace is like a lounge. Best in town? High quality
