Astana Restaurant at Bukit Jalil is a haven for Central Asians students there looking for some comfort food from home. The restaurant offers a wide variety of Kazakh and Russian dishes, including 'kazy'(horse-meat sausages). What we had this evening:


A baked Kazakh pastry filled with minced beef-mutton-onions and spices. The crisp, flaky pastry enclosing the fennel-scented meat-onion filling were delicious.


A Russian-style potato salad. Very well-done here - loved the corn kernels mixed into the salad.


Hand-pulled noodles, cooked with beef, celery, tomatoes and spices. Very well-done - the noodle was chewy as it should be, and the broth was hearty and delicious.


A round naan-like Kazakh bread.


Boiled dumplings of minced beef in unleavened dough wrapper, served with 'Smetana' (sour cream). Very well-made here.


Central Asian rice cooked in mutton broth and fat, with mutton and grated carrots. Delish, also comes topped with 'kazy' (horse-meat sausages).


Steamed dumplings filled with minced beef-mutton-fat and onions.

Samsa cut open - with meat-onion filling shown.

Very good service and nice ambience. Astana also has a good selection of Eastern European-style cakes: Medovik, Spartak, Anechka, and Oreshki.
