Definitely the best place to get genuine Doukhobor Borscht... homey comfortable atmosphere... good simple foods... be sure to try all the Doukhbor foods such as Pedahi and pyroshky... historical building... used to be a bank

We really enjoyed the summer special with Borscht. Everything was excellent including the bread, my husband also had the blueberry pyroshky which he really enjoyed. Everything was made fresh, you could hear the veggies being chopped!

Stopped here on a trip and had to do laundry, looked around for something local and found this place. Unfortunately it was closed so I looped around town some more. I passed this place from the other way and lucky me it was now open. I really enjoyed the Borscht and wanted to take some frozen but home was over 1,000 miles away. If I'm in the area, I will most definitely go here again, and the people are friendly and unpretentious here.

After eating Russian food all my life and years of eating here I have concluded they should change there name from "Borscht Bowl" to "Pedahi Plate" The borscht although very good is no mach for the phenomenal pedahi!

What a wonderful culinary oasis this place is. The whole menu is a wonderful example of the best of Doukabour cooking, however the Borscht is the best reason to stop. Wow, what a wonderful taste sensation. A large bowl and a thick slice of wonderful bread and there is nothing else needed. Well, only one thing - take some borscht to go for another feast later on.

Our waitress was absolutely charming and most helpful. The décor is only average, but this only makes a guest feel more "at home".

If you are travelling through Grand Forks, BC make sure it is at a meal time and stop at the Borscht Bowl. There are many other wonderful items to savour if you wish a larger meal.
