“If you like Borscht or Matzoh Chicken Soup, Try It Here!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2012 via mobile

Every time I visit Winnipeg, I try to get here. No where else is the Beet Borscht this velvety and zippy and aromatic. The Matzoh Ball Chicken soup is full of chicken, home cut veggies, and of course huge, spongy matzohs-- all in a rich broth.

The Falafels are good. They tend to be a little dry, but with the sesame sauce in a pita, they're worth it.

The orange juice is fresh squeezed, hand made. It is probably the best juice you'll find.

Service is a little slow- friendly, the staff tend to be students and laid back to the point of careless. They seem to be much more efficient when the place is busy. When it's slow, they tend to hang out with each other and visit. It's annoying.

The place is unique and worth a visit.

“Very unique.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

Very unique, with a great manager, the food is very good and the value is good. Interesting selection of food, and a friendly atmosphere, they also a a pretty good breakfast each morning. But most people go for the Falafels.

“Greasy, tasteless and truck-stop-bathroom atmosphere”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012

Went there with my wife for some pitas and falafels. The place looked really lousy, the pitas were more like salad with tasteless meat. Falafels were alright. Would not go back even if it was free.
