This place is BRILLIANT in terms of what the owners provide, there is a really nice staff, I find them all great without exception. Courteous above the call of duty. It is excellent for food, TV, darts, live music and service and they say the beer is good (but I don't drink) but it is spoiled by the clientele, a... More

Had a great Indian dinner (really glad they offer a sampler plate - with chicken curry, palak paneer and dahl). Great beers also. Setting is classic English pub - but furniture and other atmosphere elements need to be updated a bit.

Good ex pat pub on Dostyk Avenue, Almaty. Great mix of europeans and locals on Fridays and weekends. Excellent food and great service. Good menu and would recommend the Indian dishes. The owner, Sam, always has time for a chat and makes his customers feel welcome. Just go , eat, drink and enjoy.

Good ex-pat bar. Reliably good food, the curries and butter chicken particularly good. Service is better than a lot of places in Almaty.

Shakespeare is the typical english pub with international beer brands and the occasional expats. Its a place where you can get a lot of good information about life for foreigners in Kazakhstan while sipping a lager or a glass of wine. They have indian cusine as well as the traditional fish and chips...

When a friend told me "we're going to eat Indian at the Shakespeare" I was puzzled. Then it seems that it's an open secret: the put features an Indian chef and Indian cuisine is indeed fine. My chicken korma was dry (so actually the sauce was better than the chicken itself) but pakora was good and my friend's meal was... More
