The place was a little difficult to find, set back into an entrance into a buildings foyer. Since I have never been to an Ukrainian Restaurant before I really did not know what to order. A lot of things on the menu looked familiar, but wasn't quite sure. The waitress was extremely helpful in helping us pick was we were... More

Had beef stroganoff with noodles in a nice light brown sauce. The favors were not over powering. Also the combination plate with kielbasa stuffed cabbage 4 different pierogi - cheese ( slightly sweet ), spinach, sauerkraut, potato, and kasha. And their beer - Obolon. A little odd to find you have to walk down a hallway to the restaurant BUT... More

The entrance to the restaurant is through a pretty old building lobby. The bathrooms are old, but clean and down a steep flight of stairs. The food is good and moderately priced, but don't get the fried pierogies because they deep fry them. Gives it the texture of cardboard. The soups are home made and delicious. The restaurant would do... More

This restaurant has a simple sign ("Ukrainian Restaurant") and is tucked into a nondescript building in the East Village, but it was well worth the trip…the atmosphere and food here was amazing! The dining room is fairly small, but within 20 minutes of my party's lunchtime arrival, it was almost completely full. The decor is really cozy and homey; the... More

If you are in the East Village this is the best Ukrainian restaurant! It's as if your own mama cooked it! Be prepared to feel as if you have been transported out of the city once you walk down the long hallway into the restaurant. Service is a little slow at times but you are never rushed out!

Excellent Eastern European entrees served in an ethnic social club setting. You will find some of the most reasonable prices on lower second ave.

This place is a hidden gem! You will feel like you were brought back many years and shipped to Ukraine. The food is as if your grandmother cooked it. If you are in the East Village you must stop by and check it out.

Excellent Ukrainian cooking. We ate there 3 people and enjoyed it very much. Especially good was the Borsht soup. but everything else was very good. There is small memorial wall outside of this restaurant with photos of those killed in the last revolt against their government, and many people light up candles and put there flowers.

I have gone to this restaurant off and on for years. It is always enjoyable with a menu with many Ukrainian and Eastern European favorite dishes along with some Italian dishes. Tonight I had the beef strogonoff and cabbage soup. Both were very good but the soup really stood out. The bread seemed homemade, both the challa and a hearty... More

If you're interested in authentic Ukrainian cuisine - look no further. With a large menu selection of soups, salads, sandwiches and entrees, complete with a liquor license, this is the place to go. Even the wait staff speaks Ukrainian. The borsch is out of this world - you can have it with or without sour cream; there is a very... More
