We came from San Diego especially for this restaurant. We had to get our fill of Romanian food. This is indeed truly authentic Romanian food. It is a restaurant in a small unassuming strip mall. It is decorated with authentic Romanian ceramics and crafts and sometimes they have live entertainment here.

There are no shortcuts here (except for the bread), this is home cooking for sure. We started with the boeuf salad, which is similar to potato salad but way better and includes chicken (actually more similar to the Russian Olivier salad). We also had the pickled vegetables, which included cauliflower, carrots, cabbage, etc. it really opened up our palates, it was so tasty.

Next we had beef soup, where either soup or salad was included in our entree. They were generous with the beef in the soup, bowl size. The stuffed cabbage has the pickled cabbage as it should, with 6 on an entree with yummy polenta (mamaliga), sour cream and a green hot pepper, I think an Anaheim pepper.

We went home with extra to go orders of the stuffed cabbage and the mititei (skinless sausages). Always a treat to come here, the food is delicious, authentic, a great value and transforms us back to Romania, at least for a couple of hours. Highly recommended and we look forward to our next visit already.

Very clean, very authentic Romanian home cooking. Highly recommended. We had the mititei, cabbage rolls, and the pork feast which was excellent!

This restaurant has truly 100% romanian food. LOVED IT LOVED IT LOVED IT!
I would say we order so many different plates to try and each and everyone of them were so delicious that we ended up so full but wanting more. I really hope i will be around it soon to have more stuff from the menu.
PLEASE YOU HAVE TO TRY

I really enjoyed the food here. I had the Mititei and the Mashed Potatoes with Chicken Patty (schnitel). Very good food and very cozy. Also the wait staff is courteous and hospitable.
