The brand chef of this oriental restaurant, Bakhriddin Najmidinov, is a celebrity chef who has worked in some highly successful restaurants in Moscow and Tashkent. One time, in 2010, he prepared pilaf for the President of Russia Vladimir Putin. Najmidinov’s trademark pilaf, made with red rice and mutton, can be tried at Mamajan for 350 rubles. All the other Uzbek favourites are also on the menu: shurpa (250 rub.), chuchvara (250 rub.), manty (340 rub.), mutton chebureki (120 rub.), saj (1700 rub.), ayran (60 rub.), and more. While this food alone would totally make one’s evening, the proprietors of Mamajan have a plethora of entertainments in store for the patrons. Something fun is always going on here: singing, dancing, raffles and promotions. They will give you 25% off on food the week before your birthday and the week after.
