“Tasty and value...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014

At the hanger on the water. Dumplings are either beef or potato, so we ordered both with all the accompaniments. Tasty with an easy in & out for lunch or a snack. Russian or not... recommend to try something different on your visit with some easy shopping afterwards.

“Not really”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014 via mobile

I went there with a friend. I decided not to order anything after looking at the whole scenario. The restaurant environment itself is not inviting, too simple. To be downtown and next to other good restaurants, they should improve their look and make it more attractive.

“Total hole in the wall experience-local hangout”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2014

I love the Pel Meni's, which are Russian style dumplings. They are great on rainy days of which we have a few.

“Best Fast and Inexpensive Food in Juneau”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2014

There are many reasons why one might ind themselves in Juneau and without much money. Pel Meni was an easy walk from the downtown harbor, and it served my immediate need for food that wasn't filled with fillers and preservatives or void of flavors and aromatics. On a wet and chilly night in Juneau, fresh off the boat and tired, I found the the simple Pel Meni restaurant charming in its lack of pretentiousness, and I enjoyed the cool cilantro combined with hot siracha and warm creamed dumplings for only $5.

“Great Dumplings!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2014

We like going there for dumplings after our meal or when we're just hanging out. The guys working there are always nice and the dumplings are yummy. They have a very eclectic music selection available, which is cool.
