Small bistrot (I don't really call it "restaurant") rather dreary, open from 12.00 to 02.00. Closed on Sundays and Mondays. Very nice and friendly the owner (Tadzhik); light the prices.

Very tasty food at rock bottom prices. Don't be in a hurry though. The evening we were there it was a one man operation. Closes at 8 pm, but get there a lot earlier to get a table.
