There is a Navat restaurant in Bishkek (they have English menus and a website in English too). Food was very good Central Asian cuisine and well priced - my personal favourite being the veal lagman. They also have a branch in Almaty too.

When I went to Bishkek I did a day trip to Kol Tor lake (it was a 14km hike there and back so not for the faint hearted) and Belogorka - the waterfall is only a 20 minute walk from the car park so this is probably and easier one to do. The landscapes were stunning in both cases.

If you donít have long Iíd just stick with going around Bishkek - itís a very Soviet city with lots of parks and grey buildings which I found quite interesting.

The one thing not to miss in Tashkent is the metro - itís simply stunning!
