New Year's Eve Special Menus & Offers
Dolan Uyghur Restaurant is your best bet at getting a delicious and cozy experience for your New Year special event in Halal and distinctive Central Asian Style✨
Good fare at a reasonable price when you’re looking for something not too fancy. Food tends to be on the spicy end, so take that into account when you order and be sure to specify how much spice you want.
Thank you very much for your feedback, Loris! We regret your 3-star experience with our spicy dishes. We hope you will give us another chance to make it up to you and provide you with the best service and authentic Uyghur food. Best regards!
Nice place to take guests. Was a bit quiet for a Friday night when we went
Other thank food and service were great
Wonderful most interesting food! We very much enjoyed the wine, we thought the wine selections were terrific. We would definitely go back.
This was a new cuisine to us. The waiter was very helpful choosing the dishes which were delicious. The servings were generous as well.
We will definitely return.
The food was delicious and unique. We had the Korma Chop and the Dry Fried Chicken. Both had great flavor and the noodles were excellent.
The only negative was a local man screaming outside the metro station for the entire meal...oh well, that's the city for you! Servers were overwhelmed but working hard and very pleasant.
Give it a try, it's well worth a visit.
The food was disappointing. We got a wide range of vegetarian dishes and they all lacked flavor and tasted the same.
Fantastic cuisine! Highly recommend the skewers, handmade noodles and ALL flaky baked savory items. Can't wait to come back to try more!
We are extremely happy to hear about your great experience, and thank you so much for your review and highlights, Meemz! We are delighted to recommend us, and all of them you mentioned are our top favorites by our customers! We believe food is one of the most decisive parts of a distinct cultural definition. We will continue to strive for the best flavor of Uyghur foods and look forward to more opportunities to serve you, your friends, and your family soon!
Loved this! Unique, delicious, and affordable food, nice outdoor ambiance. Great to order a bunch of things to try with friends. Everything was a hit! Thanks for a delicious dining experience!
This was an amazing evening - the food, service, and ambiance really worked for us. I tried some dishes that I have never had before. All the food was delicious and beautifully presented. Our waiter was knowledgeable, attentive, and welcoming. Thank you!
Thus was my second time here. The food is delicious. The service was good this time. Definitely going back again and will recommend it to friends.
We were basically put at a table and forgotten about until one order arrived but no silverware. Then we had to flag someone down for water. Then the second meal arrived 10 minutes after the first. Never saw the waitress again. Had to flag down someone for the check. And the lamb was greasy. We will never go there again.
Our server was efficient and knowledgeable. Food was terrific. Had the Korma chop. Will order that again next time I go there. Loved it.
Excellent Food and Great Customer Service, Highly Recommended
The owner—or someone related to the restaurant—paced around without a mask next to my table for a while. This was quite annoying.
The food was quite greasy. I did like the meat bun.
My waiter was very good, very attentive.
The menu is quite extensive and difficult to decide among many good looking dishes. We chose to ask the server for favorites and we were not disappointed. One dish was too much for one serving, but made very good lunch the next day. I certainly will go back. Very good experience.
Very tasty and affordable! The food was absolutely delicious and we receive complimentary baklava which was so delicious.
Incredible experience, the food was incredible, the atmosphere was pleasant and the manager and staff super friendly, definitely will recommend it to anyone . Such an incredible dinner
The food is so good and the staff are amazing!! Totally recommend it!
Great food, friendly staff. I will definitely eat here again!
Great meal with great food and great service. I met a friend I haven’t seen in 10 years and we were both impressed with his gf being able to easily order off the vegetarian menu.
Great food and service, loved it. Definitely recommend
Great food, limited wine selection, no potatoes in my stew, bread was kind of stale, wasn’t offered desserts.
Hearty meal I was able to take home, very glad I tried Dolan, better than Uyghur restaurant in Crystal city.
Be sure to take advantage of the wine prices!
This was an experiment going in and we couldn’t have been happier. The food was delicious and we will definitely go back again soon.
Always a pleasure to dine at this neighborhood gem. Definitely some different types of foods to try
- but get the hand pulled noodles!
I thought the food was fabulous! Have never tried Uyghur cuisine, and I thought the menu had lots of options that looked tasty. The service was a bit slow, but the food came hot (I guess it takes a while to prepare). I would definitely get the specialty tea - very delicious!! The chewy handmade noodles and the vegetarian dumplings were also very good. My mother is intolerant to red bell peppers, and it just so happened there were red bell peppers in anything - so if this is you, make sure you tell them before hand!
The restaurant is small and intimate. But once we sat down, the waiter never came to offer water and to take drink orders until we called him over. The food was very good, but the waiter never made any attempt to explain the menu items--this is a cuisine with which most patrons are unfamiliar. We didn't really feel welcome, and throughout the meal, the waiter never paid any attention to us unless we hailed him. So it is hard to say whether I would recommend the restaurant. The food has great possibilities (but needs some explanation); however, the service was awful.
Good new place right at Cleveland Park metro. New tasty cuisine to me. Staff works hard.
More than half of our party was vegetarian, and the vegetarian dishes lacked flavor and nuance. The meat dishes were very good.
Great food. Super value.
DC's introduction to Uyghur cuisine continues to please all of my out-of-town guests. The food may have lost some of its heat since Dolan's early days, but is still delicious. The eggplant salad and the characteristic noodle dishes are not to be missed. We suspected that the kitchen had not made our requested meat substitution, and the manager very graciously offered us free dessert.
The quality was not up to what was advertised. Very blend.
Delicious and friendly. Would be happy to go there again!
The food was good but there wasn't sufficient variety for our group. Everything was pretty similar.
Our family enjoyed Dolan. The service and the location were nice. However, we didn't feel as if we were eating anything terribly regional or special. The polo and cucumber salad were hearty and tasted good but really did seem like something we could have made at home. This was our first experience with Uyghur cuisine so we just weren't sure what to make of it.
Feel like I missed out trying so much on the menu and I am looking forward to going back! We started with the cucomber salad, eggplant salad, then each of us got one of the noodle dishes. All of them were great. There was this baked meat pie dish the table next to us got that caught my eye and going for on my next visit.
This is a charming place with interesting, delicious food and a cozy and welcoming ambiance. The service was excellent and we appreciated the helpful explanations of the menu items since it was our first time sampling Uyghur food. We really enjoyed our evening and look forward to returning so we can try more of the tantalizing menu offerings. Yum!
Food is unique and very tasty and the ambiance is great. Parking is difficult but it’s right off a metro stop. Rest rooms need renovation and cleaning, but I guess it’s hard to get help on a bust Saturday night.
Dolan has an intriguing cuisine. Food is very tasty and portions are good sized. Prices are quite reasonable. Definitely, worth a try.
Amazing food, well spiced, nothing was left on any of our plates. Very busy night so service was a bit slow but they were very nice. We will return. They ID everyone for alcohol. We are 60 & got carded!
The food was really great. I usually go for a lesser carby meal than noodles but i had to try them because they're house made.
There were three of us, we ordered mushroom salad, Samsa, & a lamb kabob for apps. All were great. The woodear mushroom salad was so clean tasting (healthy) & delicious (spicy). The lamb kabob was large, cooked & seasoned to perfection. The Samsa was good.
For entrees we ordered korma chop (fried noodles but fried so lightly) with lamb (delish!!), Sui Rou Laghman (hand pulled chewy noodles) which was also so good. The noodles actually tasted light because they were so fresh, homemade. And Goshnan (meat pie) -which was also great. Only criticism on this dish was the meat (packed with meat) was a little gristly.
The food came out very fast.
Only complaint would be we waited quite a while after we were finished, before anyone came by to clear plates\cash out. Besides that the service was great, the staff was very friendly.
The above plus one cocktail each was $100.
We will definitely go back and try some of their other great looking food!
