The Silk Road Restaurants



John's Information Café

John's Information Café Review

Part of a small family-run chain that operates in destinations along the Silk Road, this popular tourist hangout is far from authentic, but people flock here for the familiar Western fare and rock-solid travel advice. The tours are good, but check carefully to see what is included. The place can also rent bikes and wash laundry.
