We had a few softdrinks and some lunch to say good bye to my colleagues. The location is nice, the service is fine and the food was good. Can’t complain. Always again.

Just tried lunch today. Georgian style, to be honest didn’t like much. It was average quality. Price was low, but it doesn’t mean that food should be also so low. Technically speaking nothing special.

Visit Ugolek often, my favorite places to eat in Bishkek. The food is fresh and very tasty. The menu has a great selection, soups are great, salads and the steaks are aged and well prepared. The bartender is an expert on my favorite drink and...the entertainment in the evening, girl singer, has a beautiful voice with a variety of songs. The waiters and waitresses are very attentive, polite and knowledgeable of the menu and will make a recommendation if you request them to. Keep up the good work Ugolek Team, well done!More

Well located on a street full of life each evening, we enjoyed Ugolek’s outdoor seating and refreshing ambiance. The food was excellent and provided the opportunity to sample local and international dishes. Service was quick and English/Russian speaking making things a snap. There were live...musicians nearby playing saxophone which made it even more cozy. Overall, a great dining experience.More

A fun and whimsical interior and great food. I would definitely recommend sitting outside as the Decour is really fun and comfortable. The service is also very good

This place seems to be living on previous reviews and may have been good before or have good days now, but our experience was pretty bad. First, the service was pretty slow. The waiter did not speak English. After we got our menus and asked...for wine suggestions, he disappeared for almost half an hour. We saw him moving furniture, talking to some friends and picking his nose all while waiting to get an opportunity to even make the order. We had to wave him to our table. We ordered hoping that great food would help save our dinner. The steak was ordered to be medium, and mine was still mooing. Seriously, there is a great difference between “medium” and “blue rare”. Very disappointed, hope this place will improve to match its previous great reviews.More
