The food is homemade and extremely delicious! Very rich menu of russian/belarussian/ukrainian dishes. The owners are very nice and hospitable family. Better ask them for advise what to order. We got several dishes and we were over satisfied! Nadya (the owner) treat us with homemade "kvass" - traditional slavic drink. Thank you very much for your hospitality and great food!

I've lived in Ukraine and was quite pleased with the charming rustic atmosphere. It really is authentic Eastern European food and the staff is great! We came in late, and they didn't complain that they had to run out to buy eggs to make more blini.

We visited Kali Laska based on reviews and were not disappointed. The food was simple but home cooked and delicious. It really reminded me of some of the meals my mom would make when I was back home - like cabbage rolls and beef soup. The restaurant is quite small, but it wasn't too crowded.

Last night we went to this little gem of a restaurant to have a beer and we were immediately stricken by the great atmosphere. After having said beer we found the service that friendly that we decided to stay for dinner. The food was honest and tasty, not high cuisine but that's not what you want from a place like... More

Delicious food and warm friendly service. This was our first real night in Taiwan and we had just finished touring Tarako Gorge. We're famished and cold (it's 11˚C outside). We wanted to start our journey with something unusual so we picked Kali Laska. We've never had Russian food besides borshe so we were very excited to try this. Wow, everything... More

If you have never tried Russian food before, this is the place to start. I love the goulash and they offer a great apple kind of pie for dessert. On the screen you can see videos of the owners doing their breakdancing. Pretty cool! Also, if you're lucky you can meet two of the cutest kids in the world.
