JIbek Jolu prides itself on bringing an authentic Central Asian experience to The Glen and surrounding north shore area. By combining central Asian and eastern European cuisine, our menu offers a large variety of cuisine, with delightful dishes and drinks prepared by the best chefs and barmen in the area. The interior of the restaurant is a sight to see, unlike anything you have seen before. We hired the best interior designers, leather, glass, wood, bronze, and felt craftsmen in Kyrgyzstan to assemble a modern design with a nomadic spirit. All the pieces of this ensemble are handmade and brought all the way from Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, and Italy. We hope to see you for large parties, family events, and intimate date nights!

    Service was great however we had to wait 40 minutes even though we had reservations. This was our third trip there and each time there is a problem with the reservation even though they have three girls at the hostess stand However the service is impeccable and the food very is very good and well priced

    We had a great time and would definitely come back. We ordered chicken skewers with Turkish rice and an order of the dumplings. Definitely better fried than steamed. We also ordered a honey cake. It was devoured in seconds. We should’ve ordered more food since the portions are smaller than expected

    I've eaten there both at lunch and dinner, both times with kabob entries which were excellent. It was quiet when I was there (Tuesday evening) but I think it's livelier in prime times. Service good, although English is not their first language.

    Outstanding food and very approachable for a family that has never had Central Asian cuisine. My 7 and 5 year old loved every dish we tried. The manty (dumplings) plov with strip steak (rice dish), and kachapori were highlights. Every server was kind, prompt, and professional. We will absolutely go back!

    First visit and it won’t be our last! Menu is a nice change from the typical steak or seafood restaurant. A variety of menu items with flavors and spices from a part of the world not often considered!

    The food was very good. Our group had salmon, Lamb Plov, Lamb in a Pot soup and Short Ribs. Each of us enjoyed our food. The staff was very nice and accomodating, though they need to coordinate things better. There was some confusion in he timing of orders, serving coffee, etc. That was nothing big and should be worked out in time. The friends we went with have children who are vegetarians. They have been there several times and loved it. It was well worth going and we will return.

    Visited Jibek Jolu recently and noticed a decline in overall quality. The once beautiful ambience with nomadic-themed decor now shows signs of wear, from worn-out furniture to a decrease in service standards. The menu, boasting a mix of Eastern European, Central Asian cuisines, and classic dishes, couldn't maintain the high standards observed in the past. A disappointing experience reflecting a decline over the years.

    Beautiful and exotic interior, uniquely decorated and well worth seeing. Polite and gracious hostess and wait staff. The food is lightly flavored and may be in small sizes. My beef and lamb shakili with wild rice was nicely priced at $12 for lunch but very small portion. Same for my soup appetizer. I think patrons with smaller appetites will find this fare even more appealing.

    Our party of 5 loved the mushroom and borscht soups, the shashlik party platter, the suusamyr kuurdak, and plov. Of the shashlik, all the meats were still succulent and moist, though the chicken chunks bordered closely to being a little bit dry and overdone. The creme brulee, pistachio tiramisu, honey cake and chocolate flower pot were pretty good, but the honey cake was a standout. The room was beautifully decorated, and our server was very helpful, warm, and welcoming. A wonderful experience!

    Had the lamb plov, an over abundance of rice and very little lamb, the lamb was fatty and grizzly. Had I realized that 2.5 % charge for using a credit card would be charged I would have not gone to this restaurant. Appetizers were generally good but not great.

    From the drinks to the appertivos and the ambience, paired with spectacular drinks that make you wanna go for seconds and an energetic concierge (Samban was our server) to deliver the whole experience - needless to say it’s a hidden gem serving high end Central Asian cuisine.
