The Gulistan Café is located in the massive Market of the same name, also known as the ‘Russian Market’. This is a fabulous place to eat. The food is superb, the beer is cold, the restaurant is clean and bright and the staff are excellent. I was taken here by my knowledgeable local guide for lunch after exploring the massive indoor market and picking up souvenirs in the outside market. For some reason this fantastic eatery never gets a mention. It’s a good option for either lunch or dinner. I started with a beer (of course) and ‘Oliwye’. This was a delicious potatoes salad with chopped tomatoes, peas, onions and herbs. Delicious. I then ordered ‘Manty’ which are steamed dumplings with meat. Tender and delicious. The Gulistan Café also does grilled meats and their outdoor grill is always ready to make a delicious kebab or chop for you. This is also a very cheap place to eat. I had a great meal and a few beers for less than $4. What a bargain!

They are open 7 days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Please note, the bathrooms are next door and you have to pay 20t (about 5 us cents).
