“Surprise find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

Ordinarily, as vegetarians, we would not entertain the thought of a European restaurant, but visited as part of the Veg Meetup group. The restaurant made a special vegan menu, which was executed perfectly. The flavours were fresh, with a nice salad, tasty roasted potatoes and sweet potatoes, a phyllo as the main dish, and a chocolate/nut/date confection for dessert. The service was excellent! Small touches such as refilling water glasses were attended to well.

Although their main menu has lots of meat, it is also veg-friendly, so we would definitely consider returning to try other dishes. Prices are reasonable.

“Great food... Service is alright”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

Best poached eggs I've ever had. Served eggs Benedict style, only with a tasty yoghurt sauce instead of hollandaise.

“A warm environment; great service and wonderful food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

A small storefront you would pass without a second look... unless you check inside and smell the exceptional aromas of huge filo rolls filled with tasty, flavourful, beautifully spiced fillings... chicken, lamb, beef, vegetable and sweet. THe owners are charming and authentic. They serve the plentiful entree burek and fresh salads at a very few tables with two more outdoors. Service is friendly, prompt and knowledgable and the food is terrific value. One of the few restaurants I know with great breakfasts AND dinners!

“DO NOT MISS THIS ONE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

You might be tempted to pass right by this tiny little restaurant on Denman - quaint is the best word to describe it. But the food is fantastic and the ambiance is quiet and lovely. The service is very attentive and you can try all kinds of delicious ethnic foods - all for a very reasonable price. Skip the pricier places on the strip and check out this friendly and cosy restaurant - you'll be glad you did!

“A Bulgarian find on Denman.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012 via mobile

First Bulgarian restaurant we have ever tried. Filo pockets stuffed with chicken and lamb were our choices, accompanied by a small side salad and roasted yams and potatoes, nicely spiced. A small restaurant less than 6 tables and a couple of tables outside. Good value and an interesting, different culinary experience. Oh yes, they are licensed.
