This is the best place to eat in Dushanbe which consistently over 8 years that I have been visiting it deliver excellent and truly authentic Ukrainian cuisine and friendly atmosphere. Highly recommended ( in particular vareniki! But otherwise all food is really nice)

Ukrainian restaurant, centrally located. Somewhat pricey (by the regions standards) but English service. Good option overall.
