A little formal compared to other restaurants we dined at in Samarkand. Was more international in ambiance though cuisine was local. Enjoyed the evening especially the live music.

Lovely place with live music inside and a nice terrace outside. Low prices for the quality, both Uzbek and European cuisine, great quality.

Well priced, good food options. We were there for lunch and service was a bit tardy, but ultimately I'd recommend it. Quite a few vegetarian options. The fried cheese filled pancake/wrap was extremely delicious.

The restaurant is the old Russian Officers' Club and has been completely refurbished. There is a lovely garden in which to eat, but we chose to go inside into what is now a library. Many of the waiter had a problem with English. Extensive menu,...More
