Khodja Nasreddin

Uzbek in Almaty

This is one of Almaty's best Uzbek restaurants and especially nice in summer when you can sit around the courtyard. Go for the plov prazdnichny (festival pilaf), kazan kebab (lamb ribs and fried potatoes) or a good old shashlyk with spicy adzhika (hot pepper, garlic, herb and spice) sauce. The pichini (potato and cheese pies) make a good side dish.
