Authentic Russian food, good menu, reasonable prices. Very friendly service, nice traditional decor. The place has a nice history too.

We had received positive feedback about this restaurant and wanted to experience authentic Russian cuisine. We were pleased by the authentic Pelmeni soup; however, while our entrees were equally tasty, the portion size of both entrees was extremely small -- perfect for a 7 year old child, but clearly not for adults.

New owners, and same room and menu. Our first visit, no complanits, this visit was sort of rough aroudn the edges. It was a Thurs.... More
