A nice restaurant in a nice area of town. Dishes are typical Kazakh, such as besbarmaq. Quality is good, but prices are way too high.

Food is very average to me, yet service is quite good, unexpectedly. Was positively impressed with the food amount, but still it is so-so in taste. So why one should increase the amount then?

One of the best restaurants in Astana that offer Kazakh traditional cuisine. Great place to celebrate something significant or just to have a nice lunch with your close friend.

The place is very busy with local families and kids - which already tells you that you will get good value for money. We sat outside - very relaxed place, with very attentive service. People come here for good food and I can certainly recommend brilliant horse meat shashlik - what a taste! Also their tsheburek looks like a million... More

As in title. Stylish, and the food is good. This is a cheaper option for high-end KZ food, compared to Satti on the other side of the river. The summer annexe (Ali Baba) is good too; you eat in open tents, sitting on cushions.

If you wanna try the traditional Kazakh food, this is the best place to start trying. The outdoor cafe is very cozy, polite waiters.

I've been there with a local friend and that helped a lot in choosing the dishes, but the restaurant staff people were nice and helpful, I think I would have been well treated anyway. Tasty and hearty dishes with a resoneable price, totally recommended!
