We had dinner with friends and really enjoyed everything in the cafe..... The waiters were very accommodating, the food was excellent (kebabs, bishbrmak, etc.) Happy return any time.

Having visited it the last few years, it seems that the menu card has been updated and that there is a new chief which has reduced the niveau. There is still Uzbek food on the card. But unfortunately i think the quality has downed and the portions are smaller. For people who never have eaten Uzbek it may be still... More

Based on the good reviews we decided to check this place. We were very happy about the quality of the food, must be said we like the Turkish and Tatar kitchen. Good service slightly slow but we were not in a hurry. After a dinner at the Redsquare the prices were normal. Great restaurant we can all of you recommend... More

We are in the area for business, and found this place. The food is very tasty, with a variety of grilled meats and kebabs, fresh vegetables and salads, etc. A variety will please most tastes. The cuisine is similar to Turkey's in breadth, seasonings, and ingredients. The wine list is pricey for what it is, but that's Russia. Very fair... More

Love these places the food is great, central Asian stuff which is a bit spicy somewhat like Turkish food. Particularly like the tea. The kebabs are lovely and you can actually eat some nice healthy things as well, part of a chain and I reckon if they expanded outside Russia to Europe they would do really well. Far better than...

I went to the one between Dinamo and Aeroport metro stations, and I loved it. The food is what you go for, although it is full of people of good cheer (by Moscow standards). Samsas (puff pastries filled meat) were excellent, the fresh vegetables very tasty, good salads, and excellent grilled meat. We enjoyed the chicken wings, the veal kebab,... More

My wife and I love the place on Tsvetnoy. The food is great, service very good. Try their teas - they are very good especially with one with ginger and Bakinsky style. Their chuck-chuck (forgive my spelling, but this is what it sounds like in Russian) and paklava are very good, too. There's nothing wrong with this place, but the... More

We went on Saturday for lunch. That's relatively new chain owned by the son of Russian oligarch. We went to the place close to German Embassy (Pilugina str.) The atmosphere is cozy. You can sit in a semiprivate table for four. Menu contains Uzbek food with some European flavor (salmon, dorado etc). We ordered two salads and kebabs. Food is... More
