Stopped for lunch and had - guess what - borscht. Served with a thick slice of bread. The borscht was very flavourful. I don't know about the other Russian food but the borscht was worth the stop.

A very nice restaurant. All the food is delicious and home-made. I ordered the different Russian style foods which were all excellent. They also have Mexican foods as an alternative.

Just had borscht and a Vareniky for lunch. I'm from Polish / Ukrainian /moldovan background. The Borscht is a good soup, but not like my grandmother made! There's no beets! It's mostly a cabbage soup with cream. Weird. You can't taste beets at all.and what...More
