Top Bukhara Restaurants and Cafes
Reviews of Popular Cafes and Restaurants in Bukhara
Bukhara restaurants and cafes offer mainly dishes of national cuisine: Bukharan (Bukharian) pilaf (light pilaf with unmixed layers of rice and carrot), baracha (stewed lamb with onion), Bukharan big somsa (pastry stuffed with tomato and meat) as well as a great number of vegetable salads mostly dressed with mayonnaise. This heavy and hearty food is not to everyone taste. Though in Bukhara there are some cafes and restaurants, oriented to tourists from all over the world. Here you will find dishes of European cuisine, dietary salads and vegetarian dishes as well as English-speaking wait staff. Also Bukhara has national houses, where you can order a lunch or dinner in advance. By the way, Bukhara restaurants and cafes usually are located in historical centers close to the main sights.
