What a great little spot! The mom does the cooking in the back and her son runs the front. The buffet is fairly small but they get some good variety in! We were the only ones there when we got there but by the time...More

The food was tasty and very authentic. My only criticism is not a very big choice of food, and almost no choices without pork.

We loved the food: everything was authentic and home-made. We ordered borsch (it comes separately from the buffet), and sampled pretty much everything from the buffet bar: staffed chicken, beef, liver with onions, salads. The price was very reasonable, around $11 per person. However, the...More
