Hard to find because of the location and lack of signs, but what a nice surprise to discover this place. Great local food, excellent service, surprising cleanness, and very good price really cheap regarding the great quality he is offering. A must visit place.

Thank SAID J

We visited this place as it's located close to USSR hostel we were staying in. We were not disappointed. It's not easy to find though as it's literally on the back of City Bishkek in a place where you would not expect a resto.

But once you find it, it only gets better. It's popular with locals which is a good sign to start with. We had two different types of lagman and it was by far the best lagman we had in the 'stans' so far. The portions were plentiful. Beer was decently priced at approx 1-1.5$ per 0.5L.

Service was OK. They even had wifi (but at the end we didn't try it). Fakir lacks the atmosphere though so it is not a place to spend a long afternoon in at but all in all a great eating option if you are nearby.

Thank NasiGorengPL
