“Hidden gem of west Yorkshire”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

We'd read great reviews on this place before we went and I have to admit that when we walked up I had my doubts. Once inside any doubts vanish; the owner is brilliant, helpful and charming, and the food is incredible. We'd already decided when we were going back before we'd finished our mains! Our advice ignore the outside and head in for the best hidden treat in Bradford!

“A great combination of good, interesting food, fantastic drinks list and great hosting by Yuri and the team”
Reviewed June 9, 2013 via mobile

Fab little gem of a night out. Good food which is far from an Eastern European stereotype and is fresh, different and very tasty.
Try the Vodka list and have sample before each course!!

“Wow”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

Absolutely loved it. The menu was really interesting. The food was clearly all home made from scratch. The staff were really helpful and keen to see us. Many of the tables had screens so you felt like you were having private dining. You must go. its a completely unique restaurant.

Fun. Different. Great food. Good beers. Three of us really enjoyed a very good meal. We shall certainly go back if we are in the area again.

“Excellent Restaurant”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

We went to the Russian Restaurant before a night out at the theatre. The food was excellent, with top quality beef in the Goulash (which I would recommend). I'd had Goulash before, in Hungary, and this was very much on a par with that. The restaurant itself felt like it was a relic of Soviet Russia too- whether intentional or not, it really added to the atmosphere.

Try the Rye bread with cheese starter- another excellent dish.
