Traditional Uyghur cooking is a mix of influences from the old Silk Road trading routes including Turkish, Mongolian, Persian and Chinese. Etles Restaurant reflects the cooking styles of many ethnic groups of the Central Asian cooking styles, and refers particularly to Uyghur cuisine.
Traditional Uyghur food is known for its diversity. Various grains, including rice, wheat, maize, and sorghum, can be used in daily food preparation. Wheat, in the form of flour, remains the most popular grain.

Commonly used local vegetables include onions, cabbages, potatoes, and green peppers. The most popular beverages are milk tea with salt and black tea. Homemade yogurt is also very popular.
