Went there for dinner as it was just opposite our hotel. When we reached, it was almost closing time. But they still welcomed us and prepared food for us. The restaurant offers delicious traditional Kazakh food. The variety was also great. Like what many previous reviews mentioned, the decor of the restaurant was beautiful. It gives you a traditional Kazakh... More

Often recommended by guidebooks and hotel staff for its traditional local food. Price was moderate but we found a few standard items on their menu in nearby cafeteria restaurants a better value and actually more flavorful.

Gakku was on the list of a handful of English websites available that introduces Almaty restaurants. It was also known to be a bit difficult to locate. We went twice during this week long trip and both times, the taxi drivers need to call to their operators to check how to get there. The restaurant is actually located in the... More

This restaurant has a a room decorated like the Kazakh traditional house which was fantastic. It's food is traditional and in my opinion their horse meat was great, if you are the adventurous type. They have mare's milk which is really sour and really tasty. They also have camel milk which is also good. A must visit if you want... More

This was the place I tried one of their national drinks: "Kumis" (made from mare's milk) for the first time. First taste was kind of shock, but after that I liked that and I like it since this time. Both meal & drink was very tasty. For meal I chose potatoes and meat (don't remember now what type of meat).... More

Not the fanciest place, but its modest surroundings help put the focus on the food, which is very tasty. Not fancy in any way, but really good food in nice portions. The service is good, and in the summer there is a nice terrace.

We had the dishes manty, palau, legman & en famille. The last one was the best dish. The rest was ok. Not spicy not much meat. The portions weren't enough for two guys. The setting is nice and the service is fast too.
