Satti’s location under a flyover is less than romantic, but once inside you’ll see why we’ve recommended it. Its menu is very similar to that of Fahri – unsurprising, perhaps, since they belong to the same restaurant group, Arka – and it attracts a regular roster of government ministers and local businessmen. The cuisine is mostly Kazakh; try a Baiterek salad, whose main ingredients – beetroots and apples – are found in abundance here. But fear not: the menu is supplemented by European dishes for the less daring. In summer, the roof becomes a chic haven where diners can sit beneath chic white gazebos soaking up the views by night.
