Chatma is located in the southwest corner of Park Number One, a 10 minute walk from the center of town. Being in the park, the restaurant is in a quiet area of town and surrounded by lots of nice trees. There are two dining areas - the main dining room in the central area of the building and a more casual covered patio area on the side of the building. I sat on the patio, which was open to the fresh air and had comfortable seating and eclectic decoration.
The menu has a good mix of Turkmen (grilled meats), Russian (Stroganoff, Borsht), and Western (pizzas, etc) food. They also have a nice selection of desserts, but I skipped those on my visit.The food came out reasonably fast and was delicious! The servings were a good size and the presentation was very nice.
Service was fast and professional with my server checking in regularly to see if I needed anything. She did not speak English, but they do have English menus and I really had no problem ordering, getting drink refills, and so on. Everyone was very friendly, as well!
After dinner, take a walk through the park to experience some of the local flavor. Many families come here on the warm evenings to enjoy the various children's rides or to have an ice cream cone or cold drink. It is a pleasant scene and a nice way to spend some time in the evening!
