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

Really good, tasty national dishes, especially lagman. Good service and atmosphere. Very busy at lunch time because its very popular in Bushkek. Prices are low. Dishes are prepared very fast.
