It is located in a historic building. One of the rooms looks like a library. Very modern and clean. Food is very good. Quick service. Do not expect the waiters to smile. Mostly European cuisine with a few local dishes in the menu. Great desserts ( cheese cake and hot chocolate cake ).

Platan is about as good as it gets in Samarkand. The menu is large with lots of different choices. Everything we tried was quite nice and we were very pleased with our two meals here. The restaurant also has a variety of seating options; I recommend sitting in the library room which is much more quiet than the main hall.

We had a dinner here. Food was ok. Just to tell the owner that his job-service here is not good - there was only 1 person for 5 or 6 different tables, total around for 20 person. So that is why it was very very slow. We waited a lot P.S. I could not find Dec 2015 to choose from... More

The staff were helpful and friendly, managing to fit in our party of 8 even though they were busy. The food was delicious with a varied menu. One of the best restaurants on our trip

This is where you want to be after a long day of touring or working. The restaurant offers great variety of meals and drinks, as well as the best location for business meetings. For those staying at Platan Hotel this is the best hotel breakfast you can get in Samarkand.

I think we had our best dinner of all Uzbekistan here. And still it is quite affordable. Not the cheapest of course, but they offer a great range of nice dishes, have excellent service and the quality of the food is very good. The only downside might be that at moments it can be quite busy and noisey, but when... More
