Bek Tashkent Reviews
Oct 05, 2007
A friend of mine, a resident in Tashkent, took me to this friendly and lively restaurant. Popular with locals, the restaurant offers a wide variety of traditional Uzbek dishes as well as some Russian dishes (or dishes that were popular throughout the former Soviet Union) like Salad Olivier. We had some local red wine, called "Mona Liza," along with our food. The wine went rather well with the food. Uzbek food tends to be savoury and filling, so the light and fruity Mona Liza was an excellent compliment to our dinner.
It can be noisy and busy inside the restaurant, especially on Friday evenings. When we went there, which was precisely a Friday evening, they were playing music at full blast. For those who prefer a more quiet setting, seats in segregated rooms are available at request. Most of the customers seemed oblivious to the loud music, however. Instead, they were enjoying it. They turned the restaurant into a loud disco! As much as for enjoying local dishes, "Bek" is an excellent place for getting a taste of the local night life.
Right next to "Bek" is another restaurant "Sayor" operated by the same company. "Sayor" is more upscale, cleaner and more atmospheric than "Bek."
