Quick service and good food at reasonable prices. Often crowded during holidays and lunchtime. Recommend the pelmeni and lagman.

Inspired by reviews on Tripadvisor after a long and difficult day reached this place, but found very average service, not attractive menu, nothing really special. The soup was good, salad was fine, but shashlik was full of bones (can't be compared with any of it in Kazakhstan or Uzbekistan) If you have some other options closer - go for it.... More

When any eatery is constantly crowded with locals, you can be sure that the food is good (& possibly cheap as well). Faiza is such a cafe, serving Central Asian cuisine. They cook my favourite plov, and the guru laghman is very tasty as well. Everything on their menu is nice. In the summer, my typical order for lunch or... More

Very tasty dish - its popular even for locals. I think there was english menu, but waitresses didn´t understand english. It´s very famous and there are many people in lunch time.

This place has choice of healthy food. Price is surprisingly cheap. Very helpful and friendly staff. But non of them speak English language (or, at least when I visited their restaurant coupe times). They have one or two menu lying around in English language they hand over to patrons who don't read/understand English language. Must visit this place when you... More

There is a reason why this place constantly ranks in the top. Wide variety of delicious central asian traditional dishes. No matter what you order the flavors are delicious. Service is fast and attentive. Prices are very budget friendly. Portions are not huge which is good as it would give you a chance to try different dishes. Obviously no alcohol... More

Thought this plc is a good pick due to its good recessions, but was fouled by a food quality that is not worth being mentioned, my friend from Kyrgyzstan was embarrassed too. Been eating Plov all over Central Asia and Russia, this place is not worth to be mentioned in any ranking
