A little more space would help but that doesn't make it a problem. We have been going to the Nargis for quite some time and it hasn't disappointed us yet. The menu is fairly simple and traditional for the Uzbek cuisine, Samsa, Lagman, various Kabobs but everything is so tasty and well prepared it's unbelievably tasty. I always take a... More

The place was pleasant and friendly; the atmosphere gave us non-Brooklyn feeling, a bit of exotic. We were surrounded by the people speaking foreign language (Russian? Uzbek?), including all service staff. The service was fast, attentive, and friendly, although the waitress made a mistake on a drink I ordered. We wanted to experience Uzbek cuisine, therefore, we did not pick... More

The usual crowd sourced hype drove us here. After a huge schlep from the boardwalk we then were hit with a very long wait. Staff was efficient and pleasant and based on a peek at the cyber menu we had high hopes. Started with 'Non" crispbread (extra charge) which was akin to stale matzoh and then a couple salads; radish... More

Driving down Coney Island Avenue, I noticed Nargis Cafe several times before I decided to try it out... I wish I didn't!!! The service is very poor, the food is cheap but the bill is high and they expect that you tip on top of a 10% "service charge", which includes tax, so you tip the IRS(!!!), and the smell... More

not much ambiance but fast and delicious food if you like Russian/ Uzbek cuisine. Very inexpensive, it was overcrowded on Saturday night but we were still able to have a dinner conversation despite loud "neighbors". Menu offers nice variety with some vegetarian choices.

This is a place with tasty inexpensive meal. Good cafe for fans of shesh kebabs and other Uzbek food . In the evening always overcrowded, but you can make a reservation; they have seats inside and outside. Place is clean. They provided very friendly and quick service. Absolutely a place to stay for a quick but nice and good dinner.... More

Hats off to this place....you know how you can tell a restaurant is great?? When you see a healthy mix of all nationalities eating there. On my visit, I saw about 75% of the... More
