Nice selection of food, good service, traditional dishes of Khawarzm region are delicious. The prices are reasonable. Best to ask the popular dishes and recommendation from the locals.

The restaurant Cafe Zerafshan is easy to find, you just need to go towards the highest minaret of Ichan Kala. The food and service are good. The ornaments of the restaurant have beautiful elements of Uzbek decorations.

Checked it out for dining but was put off by the language problem, and had to settle for a cup of coffee. The people were warm and hospitable and the decor was lovely.

As a local I can say that food here is not the most delicious you can find in Uzbekistan. It is good, but not good enough. Soups, manti (steamed dough filled with meat) are quite mediocre. The only tasty thing was green noodles which is...More
