As-Kazan has been one of my favorite restaurants throughout my time here in Bishkek. Colloquially referred to as the “Lagman Shop” by my friends, As-Kazan is one of the best restaurants for local ethnic cuisine. The interior is clean, the location is close to our school, and the workers are friendly. They have a wide assortment of foods available including Lagman, Manti, Plov, and Kasha. Although I typically come for the Lagman, often I will come for their breakfast since I became addicted to Kasha and Blini when I lived in Estonia. I can personally recommend the Bolso Lagman. For any students at the London School As-Kazan is a must know location.
