The Uyghur way of life is now at a crossroads. One path leads to cultural preservation and dignity for the Uyghur people. The other path is less than certain. At Dolan Uyghur Restaurant, we are committed to preserving what we can – the food and flavor of Uyghur culture. We do so by serving our customers brilliant meals prepared in distinctive, central Asian style. From Hot chicken stew to Laghman , handmade noodles to handmade dumplings, every dish is prepared by our chef who thoroughly understands that delicious food is at the heart of traditional Uyghur life.
The Uyghurs are a Turkic-speaking, predominantly Muslim group of people from the East Turkistan region of Central Asia. “Dolan” is the name of an ancient tribe of Uyghur people who lived in the Taklamakan Desert during the Qing Dynasty. At Dolan Uyghur Restaurant, we strive to preserve, celebrate, and share an integral part of Uyghur culture: food.
