As a fairly adventerous eater, who loves trying something different, I have often remarked to my partner that we must try Harnas, as it would make a nice change from the countless (although in some cases good!) Indian and Italian Restaurants which seem to dominate Peterborough.
So, when an excellent deal came up on Groupon (Two courses for two and a glass of wine each for the bargain price of £18), we grabbed the opportunity.
My wife isn't quite as adventerous as myself and finds eating out difficult at times, due to being a diagnosed Coeliac, so she was nervous about trying somewhere new, but after, e-mailing Harnas beforehand and being reassured that they could cater to those on Gluten-Free diets, we went ahead and were glad that we did.
The service was friendly and welcoming, the decor light, modern and clean and the food was excellent. The one negative being that my wife couldn't indulge in a starter, as everything on the menu contained wheat, but they happily advised that she could have a dessert instead. I had a croquette with sauerkraut to start, which was very fresh and tasty, and accompanied by a delightfully warm and spicy cup of Borscht. Then followed this with meat filled dumplings (or Perogi) for main which were absolutely divine. My wife had chicken with cheese and mushrooms and she cleaned her plate, which is something of a rarity, at home or eating out.
Even the deserts seemed to be freshly cooked, my wifes baked banana looked and smelled amazing.
I would strongly reccomend this place to anyone looking for something a little different, it definetly deserves to be busier than it was when we visitied, with just one other couple in attendance.
I will definetly be returning, not least to try the hot and sour soup which comes in a bowl made of bread! The other couple had this as their starter and it looked amazing, but was sadly excluded in the Terms and Conditions of our Groupon!
