Lonely Planet review
This exotically decorated, Central Asian–themed restaurant is a place to come for quality regional cooking. Old favourites such as manty , laghman , shashlyk, plov and spicy Dungan noodles are styled for the Western palate, and it's a good place to try Kazakh specialities including beshbarmak and horse steaks.
You can have a two-course meal with a couple of drinks for 4000T to 5000T. The entrance is actually on Makataev.
