The Food was good! The seating is a bit uncomfortable - there is no room for your legs but there are a few tables with "normal" tables and chairs which would be the better choice! This is a halal-restaurant and no alcoholic beverages are served!

The restaurant has nice decor but poor service. When we arrive, nobody greeted us. And the service throughout the dinner was appalling. We believe the workers are hospitality trainees and its guests are the guinea pigs. The food was average nothing to shout about. There are better restaurants in Almaty that serve similar type of food.

Beautiful structure and historical decorations. Good place to relax. Food is delicious and they have variety of meat dishes. However not many options for veggies.

This place is supposed to have the best Kazakh plov. I am no expert in plovs, but the plov we had was delicious. The meal came quite fast and service was attentive for the most part. Staff were friendly and the interior is quite pleasant.

Selected it as per advise of our receptionist being close to our hotel. Dinner time was not crowded. We had a light meal of samosa and something with lamb and vegetables. Both vere extremely tasty. Service was fast. They have an English menu but waiters cannot speak English. Still, showing the meals on the menu was enough to give a right order.
