After short thought my father decided to change the table which was not easy task for manager, but she was very helpful and organised for us nice table in ground floor. To start... More

My tour guide dumped me here so I had no choice. There are no meat-free mains at this restaurant, and a poor selection of meat-free salads. I asked for "melon" for dessert and was brought a huge platter that would have served six. They would not bring a smaller portion. Indoors is extremely noisy; outdoors on the terrace is just...

We had a dinner twice in this restaurant. It was great food for very small price. It was full dinner with a bottle of wine for less than 10 dollars

Lovely food and huge portions. Waiters are running around but can't seem to manage if the restaurant is fully packed. Some dishes were not delivered and had to be ordered again. Personnel was very friendly and apologetic though! If you want to have a conversation book a table on the firsy floor. Locals are having their disco party on the... More

Big restaurant that has some local customers and very good food in comparison to others. The shish kebab is amazing.

Whilst this place is supposed to be good, they must have had an off-day when I visited as the food was definitely below average with limp salads and awful meat. The service was anonymous and it was very pricey for what you got. Draw your own conclusions.

The food was tasty and welcome excellent . However the menu in english did not have the prices and finally the fresh juices of orange and apple carried a big weight and we ended up paying an astronomical price

This is a very lively atmospheric local restaurant in Samarkand. Music is loud, dancing encouraged and filled with locals, mostly families having a great time. Food was good and plentiful. If you want to see how the locals enjoy themselves, this is the place. Very festive, very few tourists, if any
