“Great service and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

When we were here the staff was one short, but did a terrific job anyway. The food felt gunine and the staff was incredibly nice and spoke good English. The place has a nice atmosphere too even though it may look a little simple at the first glance. The food is made with love and not pricy at all. Extra plus for the dessert-vodka!

“Great food, good prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

Fantastic food, full of flavour and well prepared. The Beef Stroganoff was wonderful, the beef was very tender and well spiced. The soups and blinis are very good too. Good-sized portions to fill you up.

It's a small restaurant and hard to get a table around dinner time. Reservations recommended, especially during the weekend and when you're with a group.

“Amazing”

One of the best meals I've had in Berlin, rich, tons of flavor, I'll be back as often as I can before I leave.

“Great East-European food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

I can't claim to be any kind of expert on East-European food, but I can certainly say that the food here is excellent. Some of the food is standard East-European dishes that you can get in plenty of other Berlin restaurants (e.g. goulash, stroganoff), but the standard here is exceptionally good. Other things are more unusual, such as the pelmeni dumplings: absolutely delicious! It's also extremely good value.

It's a small and simple restaurant: pleasant decor, but nothing fancy. Booking advisable as there aren't many tables. A nice place to enjoy a dinner with friends and try something a bit different.

What can I say- it is even better than my grandmother cooks. I am Ukrainian and in this restaurant you can try food as we cook it and like it!
