One of the hottest new openings on the London restaurant scene in 2016, Samarkand presents dishes from Uzbekistan with a modern twist. Samarkand also houses a unique vodka bar, playing host to rare and luxurious vodkas from across the globe.

Filled with traditional dishes, favourites from the Samarkand menu include plov made to a generations’ old recipe, succulent shashlick skewers, and meat & fish dishes garnished with experimental ingredients. Savour duck breast with Brussels sprouts, chestnut & confit potato, or pheasant with red cabbage and bone marrow sauce, and complement dishes with world wines, or a vodka from the Silk Road.

Navy velvet booths, bespoke lighting and glossy mosaic tiles make for a high-fashion feel at Samarkand on Charlotte Street. Guests can also watch chefs at work in the partially exposed kitchen, or perch on high stools and sip drinks at the vodka bar.

Mixing contemporary styling and cherished tradition, find Samarkand in London a 3-minute walk from Goodge Street Tube Station.

    Lovely restaurant, beautiful decor; I loved the blue tiles in the stairway. Food was delicious, lamb kebab was amazing, aubergine caviar was pleasant, the baklava cake was so good. Service was great, the waitress was very polite. Was nice to try something a little different.

    A wonderful birthday meal in a stunning underground dining room, with warm friendly staff who were proud to explain the menu to the uninitiated.

    We were transported to the exotic delights of Central Asia with a procession of exquisitely spiced and beautifully presented dishes. Everything had an unusual twist, whilst remaining reassuringly familiar.

    We shared the pomegranate-studded baklajon smoked aubergine caviar, manti Uzbek dumplings, melt-in-the-mouth Jiz Biz rack of lamb, beef shaslik kebab, poached pear garnished with colourful, edible flowers, and a pleasingly light and fluffy baklava cake. The unique house cocktails and teas prepared according to mysterious secret recipes complemented the food well. The genuine Uzbek teapots and tea cups were a nice touch too.

    We'll definitely be back again to try the house speciality plov.

    Thank you for a wonderful experience!
