This is a small restaurant without a menu. Basically the staff or the Cheff will ask you what is that that you're feeling like today. It's not exactly Bosnian type of food but it's definitely the most original and delicious food I have had in...a past couple of yearsMore

I had lunch here today. I allowed the waiter to make suggestions for my lunch. Everything was unbelievably fresh, delicious, and was made just for me. It was 1 pm and I was the first one in the restaurant. Within an hour the other diners...started to appear. The food was so delicious that I snarfed it down and then remembered to take pics! Therefore, the pics are of empty dishes. I started with a salad, moved on to stir-fried wok chicken and veggies with chilies over saffron rice. Final entree was beef with a mushroom light sauce and roasted potatoes. Fig pudding for dessert. Please treat yourself to a delectable, delightful meal with impeccable service/staff. I was not rushed and made to feel welcome and left full and happy.More

Don't expect a standard restaurant experience where you're handed a menu and asked to choose. Chef Senad will greet you, take your coat, seat you and then ask what you're in the mood for, about any allergies, and foods to avoid. He'll tell you what...fish he might have fresh that day and recommend a dish to satisfy your appetite. Then his cooks will prepare this in the open kitchen visible to all through the glass. Though this novel and more interactive approach certainly has its charms, be aware pricing is not communicated unless you ask. We had a veggie stir fry with salmon - a tasty combination shared between the two of us, one glass of Žilavka (while wine) and shared a fig pudding. It set us back a total of 72 KM - pricey for Sarajevo to be sure, though not outlandish.More

Excellent food and atmosphere. It’s a bit on a pricey side, but you want regret it. We had a combo meal for two, and it was delicious. Staff is professional and polite.

A great dinner - the food is a great mix with some Asian-inspired dishes and some more traditional fare. We had two dishes: an Asian style chicken and grilled steak in mushroom sauce. The Asian chicken was delicious, light and Thai-inspired with a sesame-soy sauce....After a few days of enjoying traditional Bosnian food, it was nice to try something quite different. The second plate was steak, grilled to perfection with a rich creamy mushroom sauce mixed with a dash of apple sauce - an innovation that I really enjoyed. Just as importantly, we received excellent service - our waitress was extremely friendly and helped us select exactly the right dishes for our evening.More

Stopped in for dinner and had a great meal. Staff was helpful and knowledgeable about the menu offering great recommendations. The atmosphere is cozy and pleasant. The food was absolutely wonderful, from preparation to presentation, very pleasing. The friendliness of the staff seems genuine. I...have never seen such good customer service. I recommend to everyone! I would like to come back here again and again. Mr. Rasim (chef) rocks!More

Though I have had some pretty good meals in my life, this one was a memorable one. The medium steak was delicious! The Chef itself helped us choose a perfect combination with black rice and sauce, plus salat of seasonal vegetables,which they bring fresh from...local market each day. So far the best steak I had in Balkan. Fusion with local spices, that makes them original and extra tasty. Dessert was also fantastic, great choice of wines...Prices are fair, good location near other tourist locations.Excellent service and private atmosphere,fellt like cosy dinner with friends at home. This is definitely a hidden pearl of Sarajevo you shouldn't miss on your trip. The locals are also aveare of that, so I recommend to make a reservation,to make sure you're not missing out this place. Thanks to Mala Kuhinja and it's Chef for this memorable experinece and great time! <3More

For a restaurant with no menu, this place was amazing. By far the best meal my friend and I had while in Sarajevo. Talk to the waiter about what’s available and then combine with what you do and don’t like (plus allergens) and boom, meal...ideas. We ended up with a salad, potatoes, grilled beef in a cream sauce with mushrooms, and grilled chicken and veg with pasta in a cream sauce. Dinner was amazing!!!!More

This places serves probably the tastiest food I have had in Sarajevo. We had chicken beef combo and it was perfect. Only negative is that beef portion was not suited for two people, as it was too small.
