Great place for a variety of food at a reasonable price. We ordered the seafood pasta and shrimp with rice and enjoyed the authentic spices used in the dishes. Very good service here too!

Excellent place to get dinner. The whole fish was amazing, I had the grilled version and the fried version and they both were wonderful. I brought a few friends there and they also wanted to go back again after we had gone there. If you you do go there order the whole fish, you will not be disappointed

Food was good. Had a nice grilled fish which was well cooked and tasty. Thought it was good but not as amazing as the other reviews suggested

This was by far the most reasonably priced sit-down dinner we had in Samara, and the food and service were very good. I would classify this place as a family-style restaurant. It is clean and the atmosphere is OK, but it's not fancy. They simply served us good meals without a lot of frills, which we appreciated.
