    Kielbasa! But all the options on the menu are $14 or $16! Soooo ask for the SECRET "side of Kielbasa" for only $3.95! Boom! (and you're welcome)

    Beware the cold borscht, in which a hard-boiled egg often lurks beneath the surface! The hot borscht is safe. A side of beet and horseradish salad (really, more of a relish) is safest.

    Its a diner with restaurant prices and bar food. Not recommended unless its late and the only open place. Wine was simply disgusting.

    Middle of the night. Pierogi. Blintzes with raspberry. Wifi. Headphones to block out that one loud drunk table. More Pierogi. Perfection.

    Не плохой нужно сказать украинский ресторан)) Борщ почти как настоящий, пельмени так себе - вареники и голубцы ВЫШЕ ВСЕХ ПОХВАЛ!!)))

    Возможно, самый худший ресторан украинской кухни, более мерзкого борща я не ел в своей жизни нигде. А биф строганоф был в моей жизни - корм для собак, желеобразный такой. Компот вкусный!

    Борщ никакущий, вареники с вишней фигня (тесто то-ли не солили , то-ли вообще сахарили - бред) ! Компот чересчур сладкий, бе. Названию соответствует только 2 маленьких бодика над барной стойкой ...
