This was our favourite dining experience in Khiva. We had dinner here twice in a row and everything we tried was excellent, really fresh and good quality ingredients. Service was great and the prices very good.

We went to the Bir Gumbaz twice and found great variations in the quality of the food. For example,the first time the Dimlama was good but the second time the ravioli were dry and tasteless. Pleasant terrace in the evening. Good service.

A convenient location at the heart of the old city. Warm and welcoming inside, seating outside, wifi available. Lively without being crowded. The staff are friendly and some English is spoken. A good spot for a tea or coffee spot, or lunch/dinner.

Went here for dinner, quality of food was fine and good service. Nice interior and very friendly staff. Outside they have a small terrace as well, which is great for a coffee with a nice view on the buildings around (Short Minaret eg)

Title says it all really. You can sit inside or outside, nice view outside and there is some shade. It's pretty hot in Khiva! Nice cake for sale if a bit on e steep side.
