“Best service in Dushanbe!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2014

We spent some time here recently and had a good time. There were no crude videos of MTV on the TV's and the servers were the best in Dushanbe we have had. The food was good or at least better than most other places. The cheese sticks come in a small amount but the sauce is very good. The onion rings were great. Salmon is good, pork chops are okay. Only complaints are that they close early on New Years, crowded area, and they didn't give change. Otherwise we will go back sometimes.

“Try the pork shishlik”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 February 2014 via mobile

Lovely cosy restaurant and bar. Biiiig menu with lots of pork on it. Service can be bad when it's busy, but on quiet nights its relatively quick. The pork shishlik is brilliant!

“Quirky decor”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2013 via mobile

The service and food were really good. Only downside is that, like all restaurants in Dushanbe, smoking is allowed. It does have a small non-smoking section which fills up quickly. The spider decor on the ceiling in the downstairs section is an interesting touch.

“A nice change”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 November 2013

An unusual decor and an adventure for food! Cosy is the correct word and fellow reviewers are correct. Went a few times towards the end of my stay with different people, never a bad time and always good food and service. Local friends often preordered when it was busy but I never had any long waits, and anyway lots of little knick knacks to look at. Tried many of the meat dishes and all we're very good. A light lunch of the new potatoes, bacon and onion sauce was a very nice change and not too heavy. If I am back in town again will certainly return.

“Cosy atmosphere, good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 October 2013

Interesting decor, with lots of nooks and crannies. Good service, good food, I particularly liked the lamb shank. The staff are friendly, without being intrusive. So far, it is my favourite in Dushanbe.
