Very tasty dish - its popular even for locals. I think there was english menu, but waitresses didn´t understand english. It´s very famous and there are many people in lunch time.

This place has choice of healthy food. Price is surprisingly cheap. Very helpful and friendly staff. But non of them speak English language (or, at least when I visited their restaurant coupe times). They have one or two menu lying around in English language they hand over to patrons who don't read/understand English language. Must visit this place when you... More

There is a reason why this place constantly ranks in the top. Wide variety of delicious central asian traditional dishes. No matter what you order the flavors are delicious. Service is fast and attentive. Prices are very budget friendly. Portions are not huge which is good as it would give you a chance to try different dishes. Obviously no alcohol... More

Thought this plc is a good pick due to its good recessions, but was fouled by a food quality that is not worth being mentioned, my friend from Kyrgyzstan was embarrassed too. Been eating Plov all over Central Asia and Russia, this place is not worth to be mentioned in any ranking

A simple, short menu full of your standard Kyrgyz platters: laghman, kebab, somsa etc. The quality and taste of the food , however, sets it apart from most Bishkek eateries. It's packed with locals and expats alike whatever time of day and we should know: we liked it so much we ate there three times in two days!

This was the best food in Bishkek. The lagman was amazing. Order the compote with your meal. Lots of locals. I think we were the only tourists there but then again it wasn't high season. Service is good.

Faiza makes the best Laghmans ever. Best noodles & finest spices, but a pretty crowded place. It is good just to eat quickly there, but it is not a place to hang out
