Reviews for Samarkand Uzbek Cafe

I stumbled upon this place pretty randomly and was intrigued just because I had no idea what Uzbek cuisine consisted of! The waiter was so welcoming and was happy to give us his recommendations. We ordered the manti, pelmeni (the only item I had before and seemed to be a new menu item as it wasn't on the menu pictures on the other yelp reviews) chicken lula, lamb lula, and the beef lagman. They also brought out a complementary plate of orange and pineapple slices! This full review

A gem! Try it out for something different. Had the lagman and my word...the noodles and sauce were just perfection. The lamb samosa was also well cooked and not too gamey. Loved the atmosphere and how they are working in a creative way, while also maintaining public health guidelines. It's not the cheapest dinner but it sure was memorable, and delicious.

This place is set up so beautifully outdoors in a yurt like tent! Was excited to try since the other uzbek restaurant Lizzet closed awhile back. This is a sister restaurant to Pushkin, so true to their game they used excellent quality ingredients. Everything we tried was so delicious and fresh.
