Almaty in Kazhakastan is a lovely place. It is just 3.15 hours flight from New Delhi. The view in Almaty is like in the Kashmir valley. Of course the city is new and is well organised with broad roads. There are snow capped mountains in the background and not much of population.
When I visited Almaty, I as is usual with me, searched for Indian restaurants. I had a meal in Namaste'.
The quality of food was excellent. Yellow daal, gobhi and tandoori roti was all that I asked for. Food was not inexpensive. Overall I would give it 6/10- including authenticity, price and ambience.
Out of sheert habit, I asked for green chillies. What I got was really hot!
