The “Saray-Bar” restaurant offers guests dishes from European, Central Asian, and signature cuisines. Combined with the fresh mountain air and enchanting landscapes of the “Shymbulak” resort, each visit to our restaurant will become a genuine gastronomic event for you.

Traditional Central Asian dishes such as Uzbek pilaf, cooked in a large cauldron over an open fire, delicious manty dumplings, and lamb or duck breast barbeque, will energize you before your active leisure time. Meanwhile, beloved European dishes like steaks, pasta, and seafood will offer you a new experience at an altitude of 2300 meters above sea level.

Our restaurant provides a homely, unpretentious, and cozy atmosphere conducive to resort relaxation. The interior walls are adorned with trimmed pistachio-toned timber and various elements from the Soviet past, reminiscent of a rustic barn where vintage items are collected.

It’s pleasant to sit here with friends after a mountain hike or skiing on snow-covered trails. You can enjoy a hot mulled wine or something stronger, savoring the excellent taste of barbeque. Thanks to the continuous heating of the grill, it will be served to you within 20-25 minutes at the most.

The diversity of landscapes, ranging from steppe to alpine meadows, the sight of snow-capped peaks, unique natural monuments such as relic mossy spruce forests, waterfalls, high-mountain lakes, rocky glaciers, and cultural-historical sites attract hikers and horseback riders year-round.
