  • Manas Art Café

    Tashkent Restaurants

    I read about Manas Art Café in my guidebook about this Kyrgyz restaurant and decided to take a reasonable walk here to have a nice meal. And what a great decision that was. As you approach this venue on a busy main road you start to think you are looking at a cool and peaceful oasis in the desert. Entering the courtyard and looking at the trees,...

  • Choyxona

    Samarkand Restaurants

    The Choyxona has all sorts of local foods, like noodle soup, kebab etc., it is very clean and cheap. I had Somsa, some kind of meat pie, really nice, 4000 Som with that. If you enter the Siob Bazaar from the Bibi Khanym Mosque, past the dry fruit area.

  • Jumanji Restaurant

    Tashkent Restaurants

    My guidebook raved about this restaurant as a ‘must’ in terms of quality and service. Well, they got the first half right. By local standards, this is one of the most expensive restaurants in Tashkent. Jumanji advertises that they offer a tranquil environment without extravagance or pompousness. It does have an understated but nice open decor....

  • If You Can Only Choose One in Khiva

    Khiva is not blessed with many restaurants or even good restaurants. The Khorezm is sort of like that. If you only have 1 night in Khiva, you may want to consider eating here, because of the surroundings. The restaurant is in the open courtyard of the Madrasah 'Allakulikhan' built in 1835. It’s a very beautiful and pleasant setting to dine. The...

  • Big Beers to Go - Khiva

    If you want to drink beer, lots of beer, then Parvoz is the home of beer in Khiva, Uzbekistan. They are located just outside of the North Gate. It’s more of an open pavilion beside a ‘hauz’ which is a man-made water reservoir. You can sit in the cool shade or outside in the sun. Parvoz is bigger and better in beer. They will sell you a large bottle...

  • Closes Early in Khiva

    You have probably heard of ‘Early Bird Specials’. This is an early bird restaurant! I looked at this very nice looking restaurant over several days, but every night I found that they had already closed. This is a great looking chaikhana serving grilled Uzbek dishes and has a very pleasant open front terrace overlooking a large ‘hauz’. This is the...

  • Outdoor option in Khiva

    Cafe Khevak is a nice, semi-covered restaurant where you can lounge around and watch your meal being grilled near you and made using a traditional tandoor oven. They have a fairly large menu of traditional Uzbek and also European dishes. For a cheap option, you can have them grill you up a shashlik with lamb, beef or chicken. They also serve real...

  • The Worst in Khiva

    This should be the best restaurant in Khiva. It’s not even close. It’s inside the courtyard of a former women’s’ Madrassah built in the mid 1800’s. I had noticed the sign the first time I walked outside of the West Gate looking into the Dishan Kala (Outer Fortress) area. I decided that I would give this a try the second night of my stay in historic...

  • AWARDED FOR WHAT? (KHIVA)

    On the front door of this restaurant is an award from the TripAdvisor Website. For what? Obviously not lunch, as I am about to explain. It is very nice inside and is tastefully decorated. I was greeted warmly and things started ok. I wanted a cold beer and a kebab. After a while and a reminder, my beer arrived. Then some new customers came into the...

  • Don't miss "The best photo view"

    We rather pass over such places during our trips. In front of Bukhara's Registan with no name and a poster "Best Photo View!" seemed to be another tourist trap. Frankly, there is a best photo view (see below) and food was really great - the best we tried in Uzbekistan! With reasonable prices and free shots of vodka! 1. Noudles in a soup with...

  • Home cooking

    If you're offered the opportunity to dine in a private home during a visit to Uzbekistan, do take it. A few years ago this was the best way to get a halfway decent meal in many places but now there are plenty of restaurants in the main cities at least and these home-cooked meals are not such a feature of the tourist's experience of Uzbek food.We...

  • Uzbek dishes

    I think it’s fair to say that you don’t travel to Uzbekistan for the cuisine, which is perhaps rather limited compared with that of some other countries. There’s a strong emphasis on meat, especially mutton, and dishes can be a bit greasy and salty for western tastes, though we certainly had some enjoyable meals. Some traditional dishes are:plov:...

    A difficult topic. Food is rather good, but there are severe hygienic problems. The one or other upset is unavoidable. It is everywhere the same, Shashlik, Plov and the Lagman soup. The bread is excellent, at least Bukhara and east from it.

  • Labi G'Or-Samarkand

    This is a very non-touristic restautant located right in the city centre, just a couple of hundred metres away from the Registan Square. This is a very interesting restaurant because the building itself is quite big, but people are cooking outside on the street. there are lots of people cooking on stands on the street. Food (I'm vegetarian) was...

  • Our homestay in Khiva

    Our first evening we had the typical Uzbek plov (rice with a little bit of meat) for 1000 sum with the extra salad for 500 sum. After negotiating, they charged 2000 sum for 1,5 liter beer (not good).The next evening we had shasliqs at 400 sum each, with aubergines, tomatoes and bread.The meals are for Khiva standards ok but for Uzbekistan...

  • Tea rooms and street stalls!

    The national food in Uzbekistan is rather heavy stuff. This is not the place for vegetarians! Plov is always at hand. It is a dish with rice, meat and vegetables - cooked in large pots over open fire. Shashlik is grilled meat - also available anywhere. Samsa is meat and onion or other vegetables wrapped in pastry and cooked in a tandor oven.Shurpa...

    this is more just a rundown on the food moreso than on specific restaurants - we'll start with somsas. somsas are made of meat, onions, and chunks of fat. they are wrapped in dough and thrown in a clay oven. these guys are delicious but very greasy, they cost about 15-20 cents a piece and they're good.

    osh or palov if you're talking to a russian is the national dish. it's also very greasy but delicious as well. meat and fat are fried in a big pot then onions followed by carrots are added then a bunch of water and rice is thrown in and it all gets cooked together. you must eat this. DO NOT BUY IT IN A RESTAURANT THAT CATERS TO FOREIGNERS. you...

    Sorry, this restaurant has no name!In this restaurant many families came to eat. They were very dressed up. Shaslick. In Uzbekistan this is all kind of meat put on a stick and heated over a charcoal fire. Streets where there are more restaurants are filled with smoke and the smell of food during dinner time.

    The Choyhana or teahouse is a more traditional way of eating. There are many restaurants, but best to be with a local to choose one!!! The large pool in Buchara has great restaurants around it. There is only one, shashlyk.
