Had a lunch and a dinner here during my two days in Khiva. Both meals were good and both times I had a pleasant chat with the woman who was running the restaurant. It being November, it was not very crowded.

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.
