The historical Soviet restaurant was opened in 1951 and lavishly revamped under the supervision of Tashkent art restorers. It continues to treat the guests to Uzbek and Pan-Asian delicacies in the most sophisticated way. The chef and his team strive to impeccably observe the national cooking traditions: shish kebab is made on open fire and served with burning coals, bread is baked in tandoor, noodles are handmade, and their pilaf is a true work of art.
