  • Take away sandwiches , Almaty (Review)

    Well, after having canteen lunch at KBTU for almost 4 years , I decided to give visit to a nearby Take away sandwiches located at Tole Bi - Furmanov. Take away sandwiches is the subway of Kazakhstan. Not the real one, but they try to be the subway in every other way , from the menu style , brand color , seating arrangements. The good thing is Take away sandwiches works 24 hours a day and there are three branches in Almaty. Prices are very good , and about the taste , it really depends upon your choice of Burger, you have an option to chose horse meat for your burger. The employees are students most of the time so a speak a bit of English , but will understand you completely.

    +Good Price
    +Clean sitting area
    +No smoking
    +Working 24 hours

    _ A small one, you won't be able to get pickles, jalapeno or Olives other than lunch time, and they will not refresh the whole day .
    -They have two TVs that were playing loud, you may get dizzy trying to listen to both of them at the same time .
    -Nothing else, they provide what they promise and good food for the price .
    -Avoid Coffee / Tea and related items.
