Square Meal Review of Samarqand ?

Get past the burly doorman at the top of the stairs & you’ll discover a ‘very cool’ basement specialising in central Asian food. With everything from Russian salad or beef pelmeni dumplings with tzatziki & chilli to chicken shashlik & the aromatic rice dish plov on offer, it makes for a fascinating, & generally well-delivered experience that can be rounded off with a piece of honey cake or a potent hit in the swanky vodka bar. There’s also plenty to look at, including the glass-walled kitchen & a large black statue of a horse. Elsewhere, karaoke rooms boasting the last word in audio-visual kit tend to attract excitable X Factor wannabes.

    Her Favourite Food :: SamarQand

    A British rapper was filming his bling new video in the bar when we were dining there, giving an indication of the swank levels. Samarqand is therefore swank in a strange swish upmarket bar sort of style. Newly opened it prides itself on and heavily advertises the fact that it specialises in authentic Central Asian cuisine, including food from Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan as well as using influences of Russia, China and Mongolia food; really quite unique. However despite the promise of rare and ‘exotic new flavors’ the emphasis in the design seemed to be on the bar. Samarqand does have a very chic bar and cocktail lounge at the head of the restaurant. It serves a wide selection of innovative Eastern inspired cocktails and the clean cut, silver and glass décor of the whole restaurant gives the feel of a cocktail bar, with dining tables in it...
