We entered and were impressed by the decor, which is rather expensive. The menu, which has many pages, took us a while to peruse. I did notice immediately that these were pretty substantial prices for Ukraine, especially for a restaurant so far from the expensive downtown area: nearly every appetizer is more than $10; nearly every main dish is closer to $15/20.The food that came out (kofta, curry, chat), with the exception of the paratha (which was excellent!) was absolutely tasteless.
