This restaurant is a MUST when you are in or around Bishkek. Both traditional and more international food are served in a nice and calm environment by friendly staff. The quality is great.

They charge like restaurant but worse than road side dining on Almatinskaya. Portions are too small. With high prices. For example, Greek salad about 110 gram 270 soms. Beef stroganoff includes side dishes on menu in pricing but not on the plate.

The food we had was ok but not fantastic. We wanted to order some loval wine but we were offered 4 times more expensive Gregorian wine. Ok.The final problem was the bill. We wanted to use the credit card but it was not possible. The...bill was ca $20. The waiter wanted no less than 100 dollar note and wanted to give the change in local soms. They did not want 20 bucks in cash. I do not recommend then.More

Wanted to eat authentic food while in Kyrysztan and found it here. My husband had sweet and sour chicken, while I opted for meatball dumplings. Waiter advised me, then supplied me with hot chilli accompaniment. The bread starter was delicious too. Amazed at how reasonable...the meal was- our whole meal came in at around £11: would definitely recommend this placeMore

A good place to taste the local specialties at a very reasonable price with a good service and a bit of English speaking servers which can be useful when some help is needed. A very large selection on the menu (with pictures) but not everything...is available: think 1st and 2d choiceMore

Had lunch here with a tour group and the food was good to very good. Had the noodles with lamb and horse meat. Very tasty, but the horse meat was a little tough.

We expected a little more from Arzu: the place is nice and has a good location, the staff is friendly and the food is good but not on the same level of other places. After all, it was good but not excellent.

I had dinner here and ate the horse meat with noodles. I thought the food was pretty good, tasty, and a very reasonable price. I would recommend coming here when you are in Bishkek.

Popular place for tour groups. They have this ‘mist’system to cool the place outside. Service is good. Food is excellent and looks like the pictures in the menu. mainly local dishes, very tasty and at very affordable prices. Clean toilets. And a small kids playground...(till age of around 8 yrs) outside. Downfall was that their WiFi was not working.More
