The service was good, a nice young man who was very kind. But the plov wasn't so great. Felt dried out and tough. The salad was fried eggplant slices. Tasted fine, but not what I meant when I asked for a salad with fresh veggies....More

We went to the Bir Gumbaz twice and found great variations in the quality of the food. For example,the first time the Dimlama was good but the second time the ravioli were dry and tasteless. Pleasant terrace in the evening. Good service.

A convenient location at the heart of the old city. Warm and welcoming inside, seating outside, wifi available. Lively without being crowded. The staff are friendly and some English is spoken. A good spot for a tea or coffee spot, or lunch/dinner.

Went here for dinner, quality of food was fine and good service. Nice interior and very friendly staff. Outside they have a small terrace as well, which is great for a coffee with a nice view on the buildings around (Short Minaret eg)
