Recommended by our guide due to the veggie options. As we had eaten so much at breakfast, went for early dinner which is so not what the Uzbeks do!
The restaurant has a range of eating areas, from the lower enclosed space to a number of different terraces.
The range of food is wide, with a decent veggie selection. As highlighted on other reviews, not all were available but this was probably due to the seasonality of the ingredients nothing more.
We did not find our choices to be overly greasy and the veggie lagman was nice but not as spicy as expected. The eggplant salad was lovely.
Other reviews have highlighted the issue of tipping, and the "expectation" that this will happen. Our experiece was that the couple of hundred soum between the cost of the meal and the 50,000 soum note we had were met with a broad smile and a question "you are leaving me tipping?".

The first lunch in Bukhara was at this restaurant. The ambiance was very quaint and authentic with little knick-knacks strewn all over the place. What catches the eye the moment u enter is the bright colours amongst white walls n ceiling with local artifacts and plates on the wall. There is a huge old tree right in the middle of the place which adds to the authenticity. The Samsa had a lovely flavour to it and the other dishes too were quite pleasant. The service was really good with a special touch from the owners themselves looking in to your comfort.

A very jolly place catering for groups as well as individuals but perhaps a tad commercial. Would not rate this place 'very good' but only 'good'. The 15% service on the bill does not go to the staff as it would normally in the UK and, on my first visit, the waitress asked me if I would like to give her a tip ! OK for solo travellers.

I really don’t understand why this is one of the top rated restaurants in Bukhara. The food wasn’t great and the staff were much too pushy for my liking. When handing me the bill the waitress demanded I leave her a tip! Even though her service wasn’t great and the Lagman was the worst I’ve had in Central Asia! There are other much better places to eat in Bukhara. Go elsewhere!

good service, small portions so a little more expensive than the competition, nice air conditioned room or outdoor seating, somewhat more choice than some of the competition, e.g., khachapuri and herring are available
