The cultural mark of every tribe is palpable in more than one ways, not least in any region's varied cuisine. Samarkand, named after the city in Uzbekistan, is one such restaurant that serves the rich flavor of its province in India's garden city, Bangalore.
One look at the menu and we were sure that our craving was soon to be satiated. We started with sabuta chooza (char grilled chicken in robust blend of spices). It's cooked on the skewer and is brought to you as it is. The murg kurcharan and the kebabs that followed were amazingly tender and had flavor in each and every bite. Also their dal afghani, mutton biryani are excellently done and the baklawa is a must try.
The decor of the place is in sync with the cuisine they offer and you would see waiters dressed in sherwanis and turbans. The place exudes a rustic charm, thus making it one of a kind in bangalore.
The prices at Samarkand are a bit on the higher side but the experience and food will only make it worth it.
