Reviewed 5 April 2014

On a Friday night, several families with kids running around, some groups socializing, and a few expats / us out for a business dinner. Live music from around 9:30pm. Smoking is allowed inside (does the roof retract in nice weather?).

Food was Turkish-like - grilled meats, kebabs, flat breads, etc. Couple of beers on tap. Food quantity was huge - mixed grill main was too much for three hungry men (six women at a nearby table split the same thing), pide starter was just right, there were leftovers of the two cold dips. Quality was good, especially the fresh vegetables / cold starters. The meat was a little dry from being overcooked but tasty (lamb, chicken, beef, chicken wings, ground meat kebabs).

I would return here in nice weather to enjoy the open atmosphere.

This place varies a bit but it has potential to be a good place. As in many places in town the service varies alot and is often not very good. This is unfortunate because they miss out on selling more drinks by being inattentive!

Overall it is quite a nice and unusual place in the summer. The food quality is good. I have not been in the winter.

Outside area is very nice although they will close the sun roof at the wrong times as Kazakh people have different body temperatures to non Kazakhs and have a weird aversion to the sun. Food is pretty good but at peak times struggle to give you cold beer.

Average cosine, they have mainly Turkish and Kazakh food with considerable variety. I only go there in summer time, sit in the garden, watch the shows on stage. Good live music, sometime dancers as well. There is small pool in the garden, children are allowed to swim at day time.

Major drawback is place really hot in the garden at burning Atyrau summer nights. No breeze since garden is surrounded by restaurants buildings.

The food overall is good; service was not the best, then again this restaurant is brand new and they should work the kinks out.
