There were ten of us around the table, with everyone ordering different dishes and at different times. Our two watresses proved totally unflappable and somehow managed to match the correct dishes to the correct diners. The okroshka cold soup was scrumptious and the manas nicely cooked. We also specially enjoyed the spinach salad.

I first experienced Vostok Zapad when I went to a cooking class there organized through work. We learned how to make Lagman. It was a super experience. A couple weeks later I had a dinner there. The food and service were excellent. If you want a nice Kyrgyz meal, I recommend Vostok Zapad strongly.

I attended a two-hour master class for "classic lagman" at Vostok Zapad restaurant. The class was 400 KGS per person and we learnt how to make lagman noodles and how to spice and make the dish! The restaurant owner/master was very kind and speaks English as well. They offer master classes for minimum 6-7 people, up to 12 people at... More

This small restaurant is quaint (max number of seats around 40 I think0 and pleasant to be in. The food choices were excellent, and all of good quality, and the service was helpful and very good.

We had lunch here as part of a group tour of 13 people. Staff was incompetent in taking orders and delivering food. Dishes delivered from 1 hour to 3 hours after taking orders. Last orders of 3 pumpkin soups brought out were inedible! They apparently ran out of this soup so watered down what they had left! Inexcusable!!!!!

Being a customer since the opening of the restaurant about five years ago I appreciate the good price for value meals in a nice atmosphere. Damira, the owner, has trained and is supervising herself the kitchen staff and takes even over as cook if her high standards are not fully observed. The Vostok or Eastern part of the menu is...

Good place, very comfy. When I went there, it was empty - not a single customer, and it was 6 p.m already. I've had the greek salad and a grilled chicken breast. I also ordered freshly squeezed orange juice, but they ran out of it, so I've had a glass of water.

This is "East/West" and has a nice menu selection, good food preparation, and nice small restaurant ambience. Food choices reflect the name. Drink choices are more standard but still varied. Enjoy a nice breakfast, lunch, or dinner or delivery if you prefer to stay in your hotel or home.

I've been there 3 times with my foreign friends and none of us was ever dissappointed with this place. It is a good start for learning Kyrgyz cuisine, culture and hospitality. Tasty home style food, clean and nicely designed restaurant, staff is friendly and speaks English.
