Food is delicious. Owner and waitstaff are very nice and English speaking. Quiz night on Wed. (in English) is awesome. Lots of vegetarian options. Inexpensive. Only one block from the center. Can meet people from all over the world there. I go there every week! = )

Friday German sausages on the grill, Wednesday Pub Quiz night, libations and decent food provide the attraction for ex-pats and Kyrgyz in Bishkek.

The restaurant is tiny, but has bar. The food was nothing special, but it did offer a few vegetarian options -- not a common feature in Central Asia. We felt the location was way out of the center, thus not convenient for a revisit. But liked the simple décor and clean set up.

Nothing really to complain about, the food was good, but not exceptional. We asked the owner (An English expat) to some suggestions on what to do around Bishkek. He suggested the Ala-Archa Gorge. Which turned out to be a good idea. But he also suggested that we could go with one of his employees and a driver for 4k SOM.... More

Despite of all the reviews, when we arrived here the place was desrted. We could order imediatly and got serviced and helped with our choice by the owner. Which was a very friendly man. But once out food was served we had to send the entrecote back because it was rockhard and chewy. The mashed patatoes were cold and the... More

The lady originally wished to have fish and wanted to know what plaice was. I explained what it was and that we did not have any at the moment - we are at the mercy of the importers. I suggested the mackerel (also a sea fish) but the lady did not want "fishy" fish and did not like salmon. The... More

This is a nice cozy cafe that attracts foreigners, especially Germans. They have a nice menu that is both in English and Russian. However, they only have one menu for the entire restaurant. So it took forever, while the other patrons decided what they would eat. My only other complaint was the cheap plastic chairs and plastic tables that were... More

We stumbled across DDB on Wednesday evening to find that they were just about to start with their weekly quiz (in English). Lots of people of every nationality, including locals. The bar is run by an expat Brit who seems to be going native. The menu is good. The BBQ seems to work the year round and the vegetarian options... More

I came here looking for a praised Japanese restaurant, Watari, which had reinvented itself to Dragon's Den. I asked for vegetarian options and was delighted to hear they had veggie manty (Kyrgyz dumplings filled with potato, carrot and onion, served with kickass chili). They were supposed to have wifi but it turned out they shared the wifi with the hotel... More

In October 2012 I stayed in Bishkek a few weeks. By chance we found this restaurant, not far from the centre. Good thing is that the owner is from British origine and beside English also German is spoken. Food was very tasty, fresly made and not expensive at all. With a rather big group we organized a party there. The... More
