Fell in love with the amazing food. Never had Uzbek food before till this restaurant, and I have been missing out. Their lamb dumpling soup is out of this world. Everything here was extremely amazing, and the lady / owner is extremely nice and down to earth! Hands down amazing food!
My husband and I had a wonderful experience dining at Uzbekistana Restaurant this evening. The flavors were fantastic. We asked our waitress for recommendations as it was our first time trying traditional Uzbeki food and WOW was it great!! Samsa, Chachvera, Kazan Lamb, Taug Plov- everything was spectacular. We will certainly return again and tell our friends about this spot!
My two friends and I were delighted with the food, the portions, and the friendly (not necessarily speedy) service. As my friend said, “This is not the place to go if you’re in a hurry.” I had the lamb kabobs and they were perfectly cooked to my medium rare request. Very tender. I ordered the chickpea side dish, which was a little spicy for my taste, but someone else might think it added a nice spark of spice to compliment the simply grilled meat. Hummus was delicious and served in a generous portion. My friends chose from the authentic dishes page of the menu and were very happy with what they got. Unfortunately, we were too full to find out what the desserts were. I suspect they would have been great.
Very happy I came. It is a very cute family owned restaurant. Some other reviews talked about slow or bad service. They are young and smiling. That is not bad service. What do you expect from a family owned restaurant. They do have some Mediterranean (non Uzbek) food, but they tell you that before you come(name of the restaurant). Overall great experience, great place. I would recommend.
it was my birthday dinner and we wanted to have Mediterranean food. we always try new joints (especially those owned by locals). we live nearby and we saw this restaurant whenever we cross Boonton main street. So it was tough finding when we reached there and then we got to know its been moved but same street (like 200-300 feet far) anyway, we reached. it was Thursday evening, the restaurant was almost empty, only 2 tables were occupied. the server came and we placed our order Hummus with pita bread - it was amazing, I would definitely recommend any sort of hummus from their menu, but do try. - 4.5/5 Lamb chops - I asked for well done, but when it came I can say with full confidence, that it was medium rare. I asked the chef, and tell them it was not well done, but as per them, it's Uzbekistani way, and in their cooking style, it's well done. they did mention every spice and all - but I was not satisfied. though I could have asked for a replacement, but I don't believe in wasting food. there was 4 piece that comes with sides. I chose marinated onion and brown rice. after finishing 3 pieces, 4th piece was hard to chew. - 2.5/5 Chicken Kufta Kebab (spicy)- glad my wife enjoyed her meal. The only spice item was this kebab and by my standard it was mild. no worries, it was good, 2 big skewers filled with chicken kebab with fries and brown rice. it was soft-juicy and amazing. 4.5/5 except for the kebab, the meal was great, ambiance (as you can see from my pics) - was soothing and good. yeah, I can recommend this. I would definitely try their local cuisine next time.
