This is a wonderful, small and cozy Central Asian cuisine restaurant with great traditional meals served with authentic style in a great warm environment. Best prices I have seen compared to many well known places around New York and nearby. I started to come here more often now that I know such a great place is open here in Brooklyn!

This is great uzbek food. Mante,Shish kebabs,markofcha, they have a new salad "Tashkent" which is different and yummy. Yes during the evenings it gets busy there and loud due to all te conversation but if u don't like that can always order out!

Yes it does take a long time to make the food but it really is worth the wait...i am russian and i have been living in brooklyn for almost my whole life and every russian restraurant i have been to was from okay-good but this restaurant is amazing and if you go here you better have a reservation because the place is usually packed and that is probably why they have such a long wait

Terrible service. I am Russian, and I am ashamed to say how these waitresses treat people. I waited one hour for a lamb shish kebab. After 1 hour, I told the waitress to just bring me a check because I did not want it anymore. She charged me for the shish kebab and brought it out with the check. I told her I did not want it and she yelled at me saying I ordered it and it takes 1 hour to cook. 1 hour to cook a shish kebab, I think not! Needless to say, I will never come back to Cafe Nargis. Customer service is not something they teach their employees.

i love this place! the fare here is mainly home-cooked uzbeki with some russian influence (like the home-made kompot), and it's amazingly cheap and really tasty. my favorite is the fluffy pumpkin samsa (less vegetarian than it sounds: the pumpkin stuffing is laced with lamb fat) and the fire-roasted eggplant salad; while the bf prefers the shishkebabs and lulya (minced lamb meat kebab). this is not a place to have a refined evening, as the restaurant is both quite small and rather popular with the russian crowd. it's also BYOB. a word of warning: a long wait on the weekends and a language barrier might deter a timid traveler, but the food is well worth the challenge.
