Our Story Begins In Uzbekistan

Chef Mazal Uvaydova, who co-owns Cafe Chenar with her son, Natan, is Bukharian. In the 1990's, thousands of Bukharian Jews immigrated to the U.S. and settled in New York.  Mazal's family relocated to Arizona from New York 20 years ago, working as a seamstress until her son coaxed her into helping him create a restaurant honoring their heritage. When she’s not in the kitchen, she can usually be found in the dining room, chatting with customers and making recommendations.
