We cannot omit one not very big project but quite aesthetical “NAORO” restaurant, opened in autumn of year 2007 after reconstruction. Design of the restaurant was developed by Italian architect James Cavagnari.
Here in Naoro we put all our souls into work. We would like you to sincerely feel the emotions which we input in our endeavors.
After numerous visits to some countries, work in first- class restaurants in World cuisine capitals, our chief-cook and general manager united for creation of dynamic conception of Almaty city.
Working in the best cities and modern bars in the world, in New-York, London, Paris, Milan and Stockholm, our bartender worked out big variety of cocktails, alcoholic and non- alcoholic, which you can enjoy with our appetizers such as sweet olives with Campari and jelly out of sesame seeds. We also serve wines in wineglasses, malts, fruit sake, digestives and big variety of alcoholic drinks from all around the world.
There is a big range of wines and sake at your disposal, including excellent champagne, wines from old and new worlds, such as Homemade Strawberry Sake, Laurent Perrier Rose Cuvee Alexandra & Opus One which are served to your table by our highly qualified sommelier.
Chief cook worked out his own style of cooking, using knowledge accumulated during several years of traveling and also owing to loyalty to Italian origin.
We treat food with respect and mix different styles and high-quality ingredients. Dishes are inspected thoroughly that is why all ingredients on the plate supplement each other. Characteristics of every element have an extremely definite role. Meat or fish play leading role in perception, then goes garnish as vegetables, and dressing as a “body” of a dish.
Chief cook concentrates on texture and essence. Guests have an opportunity to taste degustation menu, which includes several interesting and unusual dishes. Our menu unites best tastes and aromas of Europe and motives of Japanese dainties enriched by chief cook’s knowledge.
Exclusive dishes and cocktails of our restaurant:
We can organize banquets up to 110 people and reception standing up to 200 people. We also have two private rooms: chocolate room (up to 20 people) and Japanese saloon (up to 8 people).
We would do our best so that guests appreciate quality and authenticity of Naoro restaurant at this stage of culinary art.
Sparkling threads of crystals, flowing from the ceiling and mosaic picture of Klimt create atmosphere of unforgettable chic, flaming chimbley and smooth lightning- feeling of warmth and comfort.
Naoro sets new luxury standards in Almaty.
Throughout the 20 years of its existence, BATT Corporation has consistently provided assistance to the sick and needy, to WWII veterans and to orphaned children. Corporate Social Responsibility has always been one of the priority directions of the company. A number of mosques and churches have been built in different regions of Kazakhstan. The Orphanage No 8 and Children’s Home No 3 have been under the patronage of the company for many years. Two years ago, BATT Corporation became the founder of the British Haileybury school in Kazakhstan, the goal of which is not only to provide the children of Kazakhstan with high class British education, but also to redirect all the profits of the school towards grants to children in need with special capabilities throughout Kazakhstan. The next logical step in this educational direction was fulfilled with the opening of a British nursery school in the country.
10 years ago, BATT Corporation established the “Holy Sounds” charitable foundation within a global network, the goal of which was to raise awareness levels between people of different cultures through the medium of music. Currently, the philanthropic direction of the company is prolific in the participation and support of globally famous welfare funds including Cinema Against AIDS sponsored by Sharon Stone, the Elton John AIDS Foundation and the Prince’s Foundation for Children and the Arts (patronised by the Prince of Wales).
BATT Corporation is currently placing heavy emphasis on the development of metal ore mining. Steps are being taken on making essential investments into the acquisition of considerable shareholdings on the territory of the Republic. The company is investing in the development and extraction of nickel, cobalt and gold. Production activities are being made in the North-Eastern and Central regions of Kazakhstan, which are rich in mineral raw materials and non-ferrous metals.
Nickel projects are represented within the corporation through the possession of shares in enterprises such as “Asia Invest”, “Kyzyl Kain Mamyt (KKM)”, “AvtoTransService” and “Koitas” which, in their turn, hold long term contracts with the Ministry of Trade and Industry of the Republic of Kazakhstan regarding the following licensed prospecting sites of nickel-cobalt ore deposits:
Summary of deposit reserve characteristics:
|Enterprise||Dry Ore (Tonnes)||
|Ni (Tonnes)||Co (Tonnes)|

In 2009, BATT Corporation acquired more than 10% of the shares of Danabank, whose subsidiary network included five branches in the cities of Almaty, Taraz, Pavlodar, Karaganda and Astana. The securities of Danabank are listed on the Kazakhstan Stock Exchange. The quantity of authorized shares of the bank amounts to 6,000,000. In addition, there are issues of mortgage bond coupons to the value of 1 billion tenge and unsecured debenture coupons to the value of 3 billion tenge.
The bank has successfully carried out financial activities in the Republic of Kazakhstan for 18 years and has come through all the trials associated with the difficult process of economic transformation, the competitive challenges in the financial services market and the influence of the global financial crisis on Kazakhstan’s economy. Hundreds of corporations, organizations and privately held businesses use the bank’s services as well as thousands of people who trust their deposits to the care of Danabank.
The bank carries out cash remittances within Kazakhstan, to neighbouring countries and further abroad. Also, whilst it is true that Western Union and Contact remittances are handled by many banks, money transfers using the services of Migom and InterExpress are exclusively supported in Kazakhstan by Danabank.
The bank is also active in participating in co-financing activities for supporting agriculture and the development of small businesses thanks to joint work between the bank and the “Damu” business development fund. Similarly, many Republican citizens have improved their standard of living with Danabank thanks to cooperation with the Kazakhstan mortgage company.
Being part of the national economy, Danabank encourages high quality operations of businesses, provides support for domestic commodity producers, creates new job positions and generally promotes the development of the Republic. In addition, Danabank is a member of the Association of Financiers of the Republic of Kazakhstan, the Kazakhstan Guarantee Fund (Insurance) for legal entities, the Kazakhstan Guarantee Fund for mortgage loans and the Kazakhstan Stock Exchange.
An agreement was signed on 8th February 2010 for the Punjab National Bank of India to acquire a controlling share of Danabank. Danabank shareholders authorized the entrance of the strategic Indian investor and further intend to jointly develop the bank. The strategic aims of the joint bank are to provide high quality financial services and to introduce advanced global banking experience.
In addition to those branches which already exist, it is planned to open branches in other regions of the country as well as to become integrated into the international operations of the strategic investor, Punjab National Bank in order to enable multilateral commercial transactions as the Indian partner intends to use Danabank as a springboard for expanding its presence in the CIS countries.
