The food was great, the waiters are nice and helpfull. The place could improve the atmosphere, the place seems a little run down. Overall the food is good, and a nice evening out.

These dishonest liars charged me twice for a tip, promised to credit back, however, never credited or called back. Very disappointing. Plus, the food is below average.

I went here with a Russian friend and would otherwise have had no idea what to order or what was going on. It seems to cater to large groups and clearly has a strong following among Russian transplants.
