But actually it is not an...surprise unfortunately in town there are not many option for meal. Good luckMore

The most delicious Lagman in Bishkek! I can eat it every day like Day1. The silver medal for Gulyash (beef meat in souce) and bronze goes to Samsa (pie with meat peaces). Interior super simple like it must be in cheap and delicious local places...all over the world. 100% recommend for visit at least 1 time.More

One of the best cafes in city if you want to eat cheap local food with pretty good quality. Don't expect fancy dishes and nice interior however.

Faiza is like a local diner. The place is not trying to impress anyone with its interior decor. It is everything that you get for the price that you are paying. Average food but it is always consistent in its quality. Just remember, you are...getting for what you are paying, which is average but consistent food for cheap.More

This place is not as fancy as others, it is pretty bare in decor but my goodness the food is incredible. The whole menu is very cheap but the quality is very high. No beer for sale though so no getting your hopes up.

Cafe Faiza, on the north part of the city of Bishkek, is a fairly prestigious looking restaurant from outside. Inside? It need to improve by increasing light to make it more welcome. As it is, the lighting did not bother me, but it was slightly...dark during bright sunny day. After we sat, a polite waitress came and asked in good English what we would like to have. We ordered as per the photos in the menu book. In real short time, the food was on our table, which I think is excellent service by the restaurant. When we finished our dinner, I asked for the bill and to my surprise, it was only US$12.00 for 2 people. The food, which had lamb meat cut in pieces with rice and vegetables, was indeed delicious. The clients were also well behaved and spoke softly. I think that speaks a lot for Faiza restaurant. If in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, I am going to visit this restaurant for sure.More

Their foods was absolutely decent with decent prices. but the service was too slow, you may wait may be half an hour or more to sit a table and also wait for to the foods preperataion for a same time. If you can skip those...a good meal is waiting to you. I am recomending this place.More

We came at cafe faith, with friends. We had to wait 15 mns before having a table. We cannot say it's bad because the local food is correct and the service is quick. But it's more a cantine than a, restaurant. If you like the...local food. You will be not disappointed and prices are very cheapMore

Kyrgyzstan has a fairly active tourism industry so there are quite a couple of tourist centric restaurants. Cafe Faiza however is a place that is actually frequented by locals so for an authentic taste id recommend it. Usual drill of course is Mantees (not Manatees)...and Lagmans. I had the small fried dumplings as well and that was pretty good as well.More
