Fodor's Review

Served amid stone walls, rough-hewn dark-wood beams, copper urns, and blood-red rugs, Bukhara's menu hasn't changed in years, and its loyal clientele wouldn't have it any other way. The cuisine of the Northwest Frontier, now the Pakistan–Afghanistan border, is heavy on meats, marinated and grilled in a tandoor (clay oven). The murgh malai kebab (boneless chicken marinated with cream cheese, malt vinegar, and green coriander) is very good. Bukhara's famous dal (black lentils with tomatoes, ginger, and garlic) is now sold in grocery stores. Vegetarians choices are limited. Service can sometimes be perfunctory, especially for smaller groups.

Bukhara Review

Bukhara was the worst disappointment in India! Totally over-rated, overpriced, and bland-touristy food! We paid in excess of $160 just for one entree, daal, naan/roti, and raita. Even there chutney was watery with no taste. We've eaten our share of Indian food and we can honestly say that this is totally not worth it! Do not go to Bukhara. It is a tourist trap & we felt like we got totally ripped off! The service was just okay and the waiter

was no help with the food selection. Worst of all, we both got food poisoning (probably from the chicken kebab)!

A horrid experience

Highly reviewed, this place was very disappointing. The service was lousy, the food was just okay and the seating was very uncomfortable. Very expensive for a restaurant in that part of the world or for that matter anywhere else. For 3 menu items, 2 bottles of cheapest red, the total came to $600 U.S. Nothing to rave about, believe me. Would have been much better at a joint someplace!

Woth the visit wonderful food!

I was here Dec 07. They do not take reservations and its not a formal dining place but it one of the best meals I had on my trip. Go Early to put your name down and you can have a drink while waiting. We were guests of an Indian company so they ordered for all of us to share. We had Chicken, Huge Prawns and the Lamb which is out of the world. You eat traditional with your hands but have bread to use to pick up food. It is not messy at all and

the lamb tasted a cross between BBQ spices and curry. It was tender and delicious. So unique. We also had the Dal that I am told is marinated for almost a month and then lovely yoghourt sauce. For desert I had Kulfi. We sat opposite the kitchen and saw them place squers into long oven like pots. They would remove and throw water on it and back in to steam the meat. This is why it was so tender. Its a wonderful expoerience and i highly reccommend it. This is India Equivalent to a michelin star. Decor...not as swish as you would think. You sit on small stools around the table and is fun in a group. Its still very nice and adds to the atmosphere. Happy eating! P.S> I did not pay so i do not have the cost but do not think its crazy priced either from what I remember!
