After many days of traveling in Uzbekistan we were looking for a dining option near our hotel in Samarkand. We saw this one day driving back from site seeing and realized just how close it was to our hotel (Sultan Boutique hotel). That evening we walked over and were so glad we did. The staff were friendly and when they... More

So, I'm vegetarian. I don't speak Farsi, or Ruski. The staff didn't speak English. No problem! I was served by about 4 different guys eager to try to understand us. No problems. We had fries, a coke, and two milk coffees and a juice. Ok, chips often feel a bit undercooked in Uzbekistan. Coffee with milk is instant coffee with... More

I ate several times in this Café that I stumbled on. The roast chicken was fantastic and the bread great all washed down with a few beers. Also on another occasion had the pizza which was also very good.

He makes jokes and tells us not to take the hot dogs because they are rubbish.So we choose the cheeseburger and a pizza. Very good and cheap food. At last we order coffee and than it goes all wrong.... More

We stumbled across this place and are so glad we stopped and ate - delicious freshly roasted chickens, tomato and onion salad and cold beer made it our best meal in a week in Uzbekistan. Though we didn't partake, the kebabs looked good. We also shared a pizza which was yummy :)

After the somewhat limited food scene of Bukhara, we were really excited to try out the Samarkand eating options. It was pretty upsetting when we discovered that Cafe Fratelli and Istanbul Kebob were out of business. So we decided to take a chance at an unknown fast food. Cafe Shaboda turned out to be so good that we kept on... More
