The Shakespeare is a must! Great food (especially the curries), great staff, great beer, and a great atmosphere. All the main ingredients that make a great pub! A must if you're in Almaty. Enjoy!

If you want to meet and hang out with Americans and britons this is the place. Western beers and some local beers on tap. Very friendly English speaking staff.

Excellent venue for a beer and curry with friends. Super staff and quick service from the kitchen. I probably go a couple of times a month and have never been disappointed. Value is fair.
