Samarkand Restaurant (Uzbek cuisine)
Has anyone ever gone to Samarkand Restaurant? It's in Feasterville. Here's the link:
I had been wanting to go to Uzbekistan or Golden Gates for the past several years now, but just never made it.
I was thinking about checking out one of these two places in the near future, but then I heard from my cousin's Russian co-worker that Samarkand would be a better choice.
I'm wondering if anyone knows about Samarkand, and how it compares to Uzbekistan or Golden Gates, which I see mentioned sporadically on chowhound.
(sorry if i didn't correctly add the hyperlink)
So the only extra info I was able to get was that it was more low key than the other two places (after my cousin asked for "good traditional russian food without the excess of a show", which is why I guess he recommended Samarkand. (the co-worker is Ukranian, btw).
I guess I'll just have to bite the bullet and try it out in the near future. If I do, I'll make sure to post my experience on the board.
Oh yeah. Just read that review, and as an avid lover of lamb, I decided to organize
a small group to join us on a weekday.
Love to hear from anyone who has been there as to 'not to miss dishes' and dishes
that left something to be desired, better to avoid. Another plus, it is open on Mondays,
which could be good. We won't be going until December.
Does anyone know if this place is byob? I have a dedicated driver until May, so it might be fun to bring a bottle of vodka. I noticed someone enjoying some shots in the Inky video.
