The restaurant serves a great variety of pelmeni at great prices. Order at the bar, wait for your number and pick up great pelmeni

The restaurant is really pretty and the food is great quality and filling. It’s a little pricy compared with other offerings in the city though. They lack good customer service, however. First, the cashier added up the totals wrong and almost made us overpay. Second,...they sold us a milkshake that in the menu was 480ml, but in actuality it was 350 or less. When we pointed that out, they got mad at us and yelled at us! Overall, good food, pretty restaurant, but terrible service.More

Good variety of dumplings! This branch has better tasting dumplings than the one at Verkhne-Volzhskaya Naberezhnaya. We were disappointed at that place and decided to give it another chance at this branch. P.s. you need to pay additional price for the little bit of soup...that goes with the dumplings.More

Came to this place twice during my state in Nizhny Novgorod. Although I'm not a great fan of dumplings, this place is an exception. For good price you get amazing home-made dumplings with variety of fillings. So great!

I thought I didn't like pelmeni till I came here. Excellent selection, excellently cooked. Potato, cheese, black cheery all recommended.

Visited on my own for an afternoon snack and could have stayed the evening. Dumplings were divine and accompanied by a tasty IPA. Be prepared that the card machine may not work and have cash on hand - but I’d be prepared to pay two...times the cash for these tasty morsels! Highly recommend the salmon dumplings.More

Their dataphone doesn't work. I had to change my whole order in order to be able to pay with the few cash I had and they didn't even apologize for it. I didn't like the way I was treated. The street is full of other...good places so don't waste your time :)More

Very, very good. I dragged my boyfriend back the next day again. Very reasonably priced. We only tried the 'old school' basic ones, and the chicken bouillon soup. The Pelmeni was excellent - will dream of it!!

Really delicious and original drinks. Besides, they are cheap as well. The pelmenis are served in just the right portions with a rather wide variety of flavors, some of which are unorthodox.

We went there in a very cold afternoon, to warm our spirits up, and we ended in the best place we could have been! Staff very nice, the girl at the till recognized us as tourist straigh away and she gave us the english menu....All the dumpling s plate were in 3 quantity options: 10-20-30 pieces... At the beginning, to try them, we went for a 10 each of the blueberry ones, salmon ones and potatoes dumplings plus a beetroots salad and 2 beers, as you can pay card, I know thay we spent only 13€! We took our time to finish our beer, and we tought that as we were already there was better to go for a second round! We took 20 of the cheese dumplings and a litre of a fancy tea, this time for only 3.80€!!! So is a very cheap place, but most important food is great and tasty! Highly recommended!More
