City Grill certainly deserves its reputation of being among the best restaurants to go to in Tashkent for a succulent steak. As expected, grilled dishes take centre stage at City Grill – in fact, the emphasis on grilled meats is something that’s also typical of Uzbek cuisine in general. Diners will be particularly grateful for the impressive list of local and imported wines to choose from for a great pair with their food. While both City Grill branches sport a refined ambiance, the newest location on Sharisabz Street has the added advantage of an inviting summer terrace. It is also recommended to families with children, as a whole room full of toys awaits to entertain the little ones.

There’s a new restaurant in Tashkent which is quickly gaining a flock of aficionados for its combination of great food and laid-back ambiance. Barbaris Café opened in the last months of 2013, and was designed to do more than offer a solid – if somewhat unusual – meal of Italian and Japanese food. The café sets out to provide locals and visitors with a modern space to meet with family and friends in a relaxed atmosphere. The restaurant is laid out over two floors, both with seating but one featuring a more classic, stylish design, the other with a funky punch to it. Those in Tashkent looking for an exquisite dinner and a fun night out should definitely consider Barbaris Café – it will not disappoint.
