A word from Bukhara
Uzbek food resembles that of the Middle East or the Mediterranean in its use of rice, savoury seasonings, vegetables and legumes, yogurt and grilled meats. In Uzbekistan meals often consist of pilafs, kebabs, noodles and pasta, stews, elaborate breads and pastries. Subtle seasonings and fancy sweets distinguish the cuisine of southern Uzbekistan. Tea is ubiquitous, usually served without milk. Cities of today's Uzbekistan, including Samarkand, Bukhara, Khiva, Tashkent and Shakhrisabz live in the imagination of the West as symbols of oriental beauty and mystery. Bukhara is one of the most ancient, holy cities of Uzbekistan. This city was mentioned in a holy book "Avesto". Bukhara city is supposed to be founded in the 13th c. B.C. during reign of Siyavushids who came to power 980 years before Alexander the Great. The name of Bukhara originates from the word "vihara" which means "monastery" in Sanskrit.Continued

Bukhara reviews from OpenTable diners
- Mediocre at bestDiner15Dined on 7/6/2013We were a party of three for lunch and while I can't say there was anything wrong with the food, it wasn't anything to write home about either. The flavors were muted and were somewhat boring. There were sauces that came with the meal so that helped. Our server was pleasant and the atmosphere was quite but perhaps it was because there was no one else dining at the time. I can't say that I would be back to this restaurant but for those that like simpler food that is on the bland side, this might be for them.Special Features:
- Excellent food, cooked toOpenTable Diner Since 2005Dined on 6/7/2013Excellent food, cooked to perfection! A gem of a restaurant in Boonton!Special Features:
- A wonderful cuisineMarkVIPDined on 4/27/2013We really enjoyed our introduction to Uzbekistani cuisine. You'll recognize it as related to other cuisines you know--Turkish, Greek, Persian--but it has its own identity and is very interesting and very tasty. We would go back in a second.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Great experieceOpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 2/16/2013The ambiance is ethnic, and the prices are affordable with big portions, the staff is very welcoming. I am happy with my reservation otherwise I would had to wait . I had chochvera , Samsa and palov. The chochvera is like dumplings that has some smooth sauces on them very light I forgot to ask about the filling of dumplings but it was either lamb or beef and Samsa was home made kinda fillo with lamb and beef (ground) filling, It comes 2 pcs. I tried them with One of the hot sauces that is redesh color tastes out of this world and palov is something that need to be tried rice with a big portion of lamb and carrots and raisins Hohhot I loved all I don't know if all the food is as good as good as these but great experienceSpecial Features:
