“A very pleasant surprise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2014

Fantastic new restaurant on the Tonawanda / Buffalo border offering authentic Bosnian cuisine as well as some traditional American offerings. It's very small with only 5-6 tables and they also offer takeout. We were adventurous and tried several of the Bosnian entrees and loved them all! The Cevapi was ground beef mixed with spices and formed almost in a sausage shape [about 8-10 of them] served on homemade bread [lapina] and served with onions & Bosnian sour cream [kajmak]. Bosnian Chicken noodle soup reminded me of my Grandma's and was delicious. Pita was nothing like we expected [ the traditional Greek pocket bread] and was a very light and tender almost filo-type dough with our choice of mushrooms and cheese baked inside [you can have your choice of meat, cheese, spinach potatoes or mushrooms]. It reminded me more of Grandma's cheese strudel with mushrooms added and without the sugar. We loved it. We also tried the Winnerwald Chicken entrée was a large grilled boneless breast that was served on rice and topped with mushroom sauce. We also shared a piece of Tiramisu that was out of this world. We took home as much food as we were able to eat because the servings were so large and had a great lunch the next day. All but 2 entrees on the menu were priced under $9 [a ribeye steak and a mixed meat plate]. We'll be going back on the weekend to try one of their weekend specials, [Gulash - beef tenderloin slowly stewed and served over mashed potatoes for only $6.99]. The service was friendly and fast. We're so glad we decided to take a chance and try something different!
