I visited Almaty after 15 years. 2000 and 2001 Dastarkhan was my favorite and today i met wonderful food, it is still my favorite. We ordered Kazakh Salad Kazy, Manty and Besparmak. All food came on time, no delay. Taste was great like before. Personal were all polite, smile face and helpful. I highly recommend to business, family, couples and... More

A nice alternative to total meat centered national restaurants. They have great grilled vegetables, chicken, eggplant mixed with pureed walnuts and great traditional bread with cheese. There were also excellent drink options like the cilantro lemonade. Well situated across from the park with nice decor and good prices.

The Kazakh cuisine here is done very well and this was THE restaurant in town 10 years ago. As probably the only restaurant in town open at 04:00 in the morning, it was packed after club closing ours back when everyone went clubbing 6 nights a week. I particularly like their pelmeni soup, shi soup, and fresh juices. Many of... More

There are a number of restaurants that belong to Dastarkhan chain: Dastarkhan, Schvabskiy Domik, Samovar, and few places up in the mountain gorge - Almarasan. The service is extremely bad, slow, you may be served yesterday bread, they cheat on checks, etc. Avoid!!!!

With friends from Almaty we stopped in here for a business lunch, and we all felt a little cold. In Dastarkhan we had fabulous hot soup, spicy lamb dishes, and an old Russian country favorite of mine which is like a fresh cranberry jello, but more the thickness of a milkshake. Strange, and delicious. We loved our food, and all... More

Somewhere in the mountains, there is a group of restaurants serving local and Georgian food. Dastrakhan is a place where shaslik is always good, and they have so many dishes (with names I can't remember) that you always discover something new.
