Some friends took me to Kishlak & I never would have chosen to sit in those outside tents, but "When in Rome". It actually turned out to be great, but be prepared to spend a lot of time there. I suppose you could sit at...More

When entering this luxurious restaurant my first thought was that this was going to be expensive. But it was really cheap. I had lunch consisting of plov, a soup, tomato salad, bread and a pot of good, green tea for only 1800 tenge (4,30 euro)....More

Very interesting place with Kazakh decoration, and we tried their camel milk and horse milk, tasted sour! We also ordered national cuisine Beshbarmak, food was lovely. Would recommend people come here if they are in Almaty.

The food was really not good in my opinion. The dishes didn't taste good..just kind of cheap feel to them. The homemade lemonade was only syrup and water. In other places you get much better. The service was very good and the waiter spoke English.

We stopped here during our walking-tour through Almaty for a lunch. This place has an almost folklore-style atmosphere with traditional dishes. The people who work here are very polite and helpful. We ordered two traditional dishes we have already tried elsewhere and they were both...More

When you come in an authentic and warm typical Kazakh decoration welcomes you. You feel that you are where you want to be. It is not a luxury restaurant, the taste of the local food, their presentation and the warm atmosphere set the restaurants quality....More
