Rockville has been increasing the variety of its restaurant options over the past few years, and Samovar, the new restaurant on North Washington, continues that trend. Though this place has only been open for a few weeks, it’s already garnering quite the buzz on social media.
Locals rave about the kitchen’s authentic and delicious Eastern European and Central Asian fare, and the most popular dishes include salo, lagman noodle soup, and char-grilled lamb kebabs. Samovar’s owner and head chef, Solijon Nasimov, learned the restaurant business under his father in their native Tajikstan, and since moving to the USA, he helmed restaurants in New York, Portland, and Denver before opening his own place in Rockville. Whether you’re looking to try something new or you're a long-time fan of Tajikstan-style cuisine, consider grabbing a few friends and heading in for a meal.
