Restaurants in Tashkent


The following is the information and photos on the best Tashkent restaurants, cafes and chaykhanas (“teahouses”). Besides large and luxurious restaurants, Tashkent is rich in small ones - cafes or traditional chaykhanas - where you can enjoy delicious yet inexpensive meals. Some cafes are just private Uzbek houses offering authentic Uzbek cuisine menus: pilafs, shashlik kebabs, samsa pasties, manti dumplings, lagmon noodle soup, shurva soup and others. Since it is warm from March to November in Tashkent, most of the restaurants in the city have lovely outdoor eating areas. They are especially attractive in the old part of Tashkent, in and around Chorsu Bazaar. When you are in the city, we strongly recommend that you also visit Osh Markazi (“Pilaf Center”) where they cook real Uzbek pilafs in huge cauldrons. Pilaf is a signature dish of Uzbek cuisine, so they often say in Uzbekistan, “Make pilaf, not war.” Many Tashkent restaurants also offer Russian, Korean, Chinese, Japanese, Mediterranean and other dishes, including vegetarian and healthy diet ones. In addition, many of the restaurants entertain their guests with live music and various shows, including traditional Uzbek dance.
