    Khodsha Nasreddin v Bukhare: Usbek food

    by yumyum Written Apr 9, 2006

    inside the restaurant

    This restaurant has a very special Usbek decoration. You feel like your in 1001 nights. Every now and then the music is suddenly turned up and 3 belly dancers come to entertain the guests. Some table are not western style tables but usbek style where you take off your shoes and sort of sit like on a bed with a low table on top of it.

    Sometimes the whole restaurant is booked for a wedding.

    Favorite Dish: As usual I like eating shashlik but also vegetarians can find something to eat vegetable wise or fish. Food is delicious but not cheap.

    Dyadya Vanya ('Uncle Vanya'): Stylish artictic places-1

    by Anya_D Written Jan 1, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is one of my favourite places, located in a theater on Bolshaya Dmitrovka, and named after a title of a famous Chekhov play. It is relatively small, very cosy and intimate in atmosphere.

    Favorite Dish: Menu includes rather european dishes, with a tendency to Russian cuisine. You can also have a lunch there: it is only 8 dollars, and very nutritious and delicious.

    Petrovich: Stylish artistic places-2

    by Anya_D Written Jan 1, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is another my favourite place. 'Petrovich' is the patronymic popular in Russia (if your father is Peter, you are Petrovich). Also, this patronimic means a lot in the modern soviet folklore... oh, you must really be a Russian to fully understand it!!! But do not be scared: you will understand it immediately as you step into this restaurant (they call it a 'club', on weekends you may not get in without a club card). But you can always get freely there for lunch, which are cheap (6 dollars).

    Favorite Dish: This is very Russian cuisine. The interior is amazing. Live music plays. Ask your Russian friends to take you there: it is rather lost in Myasnitskaya lanes. But it is worth a visit, no doubt, both for food and atmosphere.

    Taras Bulbas - Ukrainian Cuisine: More fun than Yak Cheese

    by marigirl Written Oct 8, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Isn't that cute!

    The waiters were dressed in Ukrainian peasent garb and fun music played. The staff was really friendly, and it was small, intimate, cozy, well-lit. Really a family/friends oriented fun place.

    Decorated like a Ukrainian farm house. Colorful, cheery!

    Favorite Dish: Everything I had was completely new to me and all in Ukrainian or Russian, neither of which do I speak at ALL. I had a bread with egg baked into it somehow, and tried the smoked ham fat on bread with a mustardy-horseradishy sauce and some interesting brewed beverage.

    Go with a local, let them order for you, "smile and eat it!" as my dad says!
