Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A very large restaurant considered kind of fancy by local guides, serving all the classic dishes in a nice atmosphere. The staff was friendly and helpful. The food was ok, nothing extraordinary but well done. Good portion and good local beer.

the place is beautiful and it seems like a very good place to go for Uzbek food. I enjoyed the manti, my wife had pelmeni. Service was a bit slow and occasionally inattentive, but generally good. Our food was tasty. The biggest drawback to this...place was all the road construction going on at the corner outside. Traffic was a mess.More

It’s not easy to review this restaurant. The food is from good to excellent. But service is horrible. All waiters are nice and really try to do good job, but they don’t know what to, how to serve. All boys about 18/22 years old absolutely...inexperienced, keep forgetting to bring or order something, then repeat the same dishes. Try to find a different restaurant in Samarkand.More

We ate here one evening at the recommendation of our guide. The place was heaving and reservation was essential. Service was slow, but I dread to think what would have been happened without our guide to chivvy things along. The food was fine and location/ambience...fun.More

A large & nicely decorated restaurant. Food is good. English menu is not available & waiters do not speak English, we managed with body language as the menu has food photos. We had lunch - Radish salad, pilaf, beef kebab

The menu is only available in Russian and in cursive Cyrillic script. Very popular with the locals which is usually a good sign. Food is good-well prepared and presented and takes a reasonable amount of time to arrive. My reservation is about a sneaky addition...of two cocktails to my bill--cheap and nasty and left a bad taste in my mouth. We are only talking about a very small amount of money, but why do it?More

The only disappointing meal we had in Samarkand. The venue is nice enough although if you do not want to be in a disco room, request a cabin or the tables on the first floor. Staff as in all restaurants were welcoming. So what went...wrong? Our two fish salads turned up without salmon. The lentil soup was un edible and the chicken shishlak pink in the middle. Maybe we were unlucky, but this was the worst meal on our 10 day trip.More

Not sure why people think this a good place. The menu is exactly the same as Samarkand Restaurant and the food is not good at all. The vegetarian options are very limited and the place is entirely a tourist trap. Seraíces was ok.

The service is absolutely awful. Waiters are no paying attention to the customers. I would say they choose whom to pay attention to. We were not in their favor. So sad. They have spoiled our anniversary celebration there.
