“Pricey, Touristy....but definitely Go”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

Bukhara is a very different Indian restaurant experience, and the scene reminded us more of a super-popular, noisy restaurant in America. At dinnertime it is wall-to-wall businessmen and tourists. The waiters are pleasant and helpful but they also cajole people into ordering more food and drinks than necessary. Bukhara is famous for grilled lamb and chicken and it was truly delicious, everything was good. Dinner for two was $120, which is high for India, but it was a most enjoyable experience. Do not attempt to go without a reservation.

“Bukhara Vegetarian Experience”
Reviewed March 2, 2014

Our family had a celebration dinner at Bukhara and we were very pleased with the whole experience.

The taste is as usual exceptional, the ambience very friendly and quiet, the service was great. Even though we didn't have a reservation for Sunday night we only had to wait 20 mts to be seated. We are vegetarians and still chose to go to Bukhara for their "Dal Bukhara and Aloo" Given that there is not much variety for vegetarians, we were suggested to try a new dish "Paneer" not on the menu. My kids liked it very much.

What we liked best is that whoever was in the vicinity was helping our table and brought us items as needed. Everyone was exceptionally friendly and willing to go the extra mile to make our experience a memorable one. My son was given a quick tour of the kitchen which was unexpected and was very much enjoyed. The best part was the food which was buttery (yum), just spicy enough, and served with the right amount of gap between items.

The least liked is definitely the bill as Bukhara is certainly pricy beyond any other restaurants. But it gives a very "classy" experience to everyone who visits. For some it may be a once in a life time experience, but we will certainly go back again for our "Dal and Aloo".

But, given that the name of the place attracts the customers, one small addition could be to make sure to call the people if they are waiting and not wait for them to come and ask if it is their turn, and may be serve them a small soft drink while they wait. A small addition could be appetizers for kids.

All in all, great experience, we had wonderful conversations as a family and came home happy. We will certainly recommend Bukhara to all our friends and business associates.

The food, atmosphere, and overall ambience is something one should experience at least once in their life. The food was outstanding and so was the service. A place that has to be visited.

“Must eat there at least once”
Reviewed March 1, 2014

I had heard a lot about Bukhara and was expecting a lot. I was a little disappointed by the selection of menu for vegetarians. They haven't changed their menu for years! The chef himself came out to talk to us and gave us good suggestions. My husband has been advised to consume low cholesterol food which we mentioned o the Chef and he specially made Tandoori fish for him with very little olive oil and my husband really enjoyed that. Apart from that Dal was as good as expected.
