From first sight until you leave Frunze, it is a delightfully wonderful experience; words can only point and it must be experienced. They offer a range of soups and salads, artfully presented and served and tasting well beyond our expectations. We took soup and salad...for a light lunch but it was enough that we ate a light meal in the evening. The food, presentation and serving are the best I have had in Bishkek and remind me of some of the better restaurants I visit in Europe. You will not be disappointed and to top it off, it is inexpensive by western standards.More

My wife and I were invited her by her cousins and what a discovery it was for me. There are many restaurants in Bishkek, so good and some which have either poor service or tasteless food, but this is definitely not one of those..!!! This...is a restaurant with excellent food and outstanding service from being greeted at the entrance to being served by a waitress who was attentive and obviously trained in how to serve at the table. We sat in one of the outdoor areas, as it was a wonderfully warm evening, where the live singer's songs could be heard in the background and not too loud. (BTW the singer had a great voice and a mix of English and local songs). We ate some really good bruschetta followed by fresh salads. My main course was "Juicy Chicken with broccoli. I have never seen anything so beautifully crafted by a chef for a very long time and I can say it was certainly juicy. The broccoli was cooked to perfection (al dente) and I would recommend this dish to anyone visiting this restaurant. (see picture). This is a restaurant highly recommended for a top end meal experience in BishkekMore

This place is great! Atmosphere is chill and comfy, but the staff is also really friendly. They know what they’re doing and what they’re talking about, and you can tell making the customers happy is their main priority. Food is pretty good, some of classics...dishes and some twists, and for their prices it’s 100% worth it! Amazing wines, food and service. Love this place and will continue to visit.More

We’d an excellent dinner the evening before - see my review. We thought that we wouldn’t find another such quality restaurant. By accident we passed by this restaurant during our morning walk and we liked so much the garden and its set-up so we made...a reservation for the evening. Food according to our European taste exceeded our expectations - as appetizers we had the bok choy salad (10/10) and the ceviche (9/10). As main dishes we had the horse ribs (10/10) and the fish (10/10). English language of the staff as well as their knowledge was very good. Live music was there too and the light breeze of air in the garden made our overall experience worthwhile, The only point that I recommend that needs to ‘change’ was the spoed of serving food. We hadn’t finish our 2nd appraiser when the main dishes arrived.More

This restaurant is amazing! It’s a hidden gem located in the old square in Bishkek. The menu has traditional and also very unique dishes. The food is delicious. The beet and burrata salad is a must! The service is top notch. The location is beautiful...and has a fountain and gazebos outside. The inside interior is a must see. It features works of art, paintings and sculptures from local artists. I highly recommend this restaurant. We really enjoyed our visit.More

Beautiful restaurant & area; excellent service & delicious food. The artwork for sale is unbelievable, too. I cannot wait to return to Bishkek & will definitely visit Frunze again. Only the next time I will buy a painting for a wonderful keepsake.

Excellent place and very nice food, only the disappointing part is a service, which destroys everything. We ordered beer while we were choosing the food from menu. Then we ordered wine with main course. Guess what? They brought the food then all drinks together. 🤦🏻‍♀️...no one comes to your table until you will have to search and call the waiter. Please, Frunze, please train your staff. We arrived super sad.More

If you suddenly find yourself in Bishkek, be sure to go to the Frunze restaurant. It is located in the city center, next to the old square. A large two-story building that in such an interesting way combines modern design and authentic interior, paintings and...sculptures by local artists, national dishes and Japanese rolls, a wonderful cappuccino with delicate foam and milk chocolate.More
