“Tasty gem!!”
Reviewed 30 October 2013 via mobile

Had a wonderful dinner, very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Very authentic decor and atmosphere.
Started with eggplant with cheese and tomato, daikon radish with meat and homemade kimchee! All fresh and delicious
Uzbekski plov - pilaf was served by a chef at our table with side of tomatoes cucumbers and roasted garlic
Soup with homemade little pelmeni(dumplings) was superb!
For dessert - panacotta with raspberries light and tasty
Local Latvian beer was a delight.
Will come back for sure

“Unusual menu”
Reviewed 18 July 2013

It was good to eat something different and I really enjoyed the food here. I recommend the plov as the meat was very tender. I found the service cold but that may have been in comparison to our meals elsewhere.

“A delightful restaurant with unique cuisine!”
Reviewed 8 July 2013

We took a short cab ride (2 lats) to a great restaurant who served exquisite meals. Having never eaten this type food before we asked for help from the waitress, who was dressed in fancy garb we guessed was of the countries origin. We ordered dishes that could shared. The main one was dished out by the chef himself. Some had wine, others enjoyed bottled water. It was definitely one of the highlights of our eating out. Being from Connecticut. And Washington State, it was definitely a treat we'll remember.

“Great food, nice atmosphere”
Reviewed 28 May 2013

We enjoyed our lunch in the Uzbekistan restaurant very much. The specialties were tasted great, the service was nice and we had a lot of fun tasting the hot sauce standing at the table between the salt and pepper. It was really hot....and delicious :-)
