The eggplant with the sauce from the green bean dish was delicious. I do not remember the full sauce, but I think it contained garlic and sesame oil.

First we were sat in a corner and ignored till we finally has to speak up, Then we ordered and watched as our meal was served to another table, The person who took our order asked how everything was and if we wanted dessert and we informed him that we think our meal was served to another table and had not been served , He then said he would give us fre dessert and we were grateful but reminded him we still had not recurved our dinner, he said of course , A different server then preceded to being us the dessert still again before the meal, then we watched as the table who revived our meal the first time had the dish served again and they were confused and said they had already received. That waiter look around confused and I informed him I think it was ours probably 90 minutes after we ordered :( , they ended up giving us 15% off dish but because my hubby was so hungry he ate the dessert served ( which was NOT) the one ordered , in conclusion what a mess and I picked this place for my birthday ☹️

I had Noodle Soup that was bland with very few noodles and little lamb. Also, they are phasing out their liquor service. Beer no longer available and they are selling off their wine and alcohol stock. I hope this doesn't cause them to lose customers.

We completely agree with your perspective, and we know to stop serving alcoholic beverages will affect our overall business revenue. We evaluated a lot about this matter last year and finally decided to focus on our core cultural values. Also, we realize that the main reason our customers choose us is not because of the alcoholic beverages but because of the food and experience we can serve. We'll keep striving to offer the best experience with our core values.

The temperature was in the mid 50s in the restaurant and rather ineffective space heaters located throughout. One would expect that the staff would offer some type of apology. Nope.... In any other circumstance we would have walked out and gone elsewhere. The menu on line reassured us it would be worth the sacrifice of dining indoors at outdoor temperatures. We immediately ordered hot tea which was very flavorful. Everything we ordered was delicious and would return in the spring or fall because who knows, maybe the air conditioning does not work either.

Service left much to be desired. We froze at our table (inside). Two of four food items were delicious, one was good, and one was absolutely horrible (no flavor, practically no meat, what looked like canned vegetables). But the delicious items would make ordering out sometime worth it.

You can enjoy good food and good service. My cucumber salad had my four favorite ingredients--cucumbers, onions, peppers, and olives. I enjoyed the homemade pulled noodles with lamb.

Everyone enjoyed their food (including our 9 and 12 year olds). We were there on Christmas night and it was very very busy. They were really overwhelmed with a full house and a lot of take out orders, but recognized that and were very apologetic about the wait and gave us several free dishes and another round of drinks because of it. It was obvious everyone working there was working very hard to keep up with everything. We definitely will be back.

So convenient, at Cleveland Park Metro. We went early so it was quiet. Great, friendly service. We loved the food. A great way to experience Uighur culture! We will go back for the amazing Chicken stew. Kind of like fusion of Asian noodles with A hearty Tika Massala. Highly recommend it!

Food tends to be on the spicy end, so take that into account when you order and be sure to specify how much spice you want.

We had the Korma Chop and the Dry Fried Chicken. Both had great flavor and the noodles were excellent. The only negative was a local man screaming outside the metro station for the entire meal...oh well, that's the city for you! Servers were overwhelmed but working hard and very pleasant. Give it a try, it's well worth a visit.

Then we had to flag someone down for water. Then the second meal arrived 10 minutes after the first. Never saw the waitress again. Had to flag down someone for the check. And the lamb was greasy. We will never go there again.

We chose to ask the server for favorites and we were not disappointed. One dish was too much for one serving, but made very good lunch the next day. I certainly will go back. Very good experience.
