24-hour, Ukranian diner with multi-lingual staff, and most any Eastern European dish you can think of : soups (borscht, cabbage, and others); kielbasa; pierogi (multi varieties); beef stroganoff; goulash; vegetarian options; kasha; potato pancakes; beet & horseradish salad; plus the full compliment of standard American diner fare. We had pierogi, cabbage soup, stroganoff, potato pancake, Pilsner Urquell, and pies (cherry and banana cream), all of it well-prepared and, for NYC, bargain priced. Combine that with the relaxed setting, the attentive, friendly waitstaff, and you can hardly go wrong planting yourselves here in this restaurant-dense neighborhood.

Stopped by at this Polish Diner after a night out with girls friends. Great comfort food in a busy diner like setting. Get the homemade chicken noodle soup!!

Good food and atmosphere that has survived the changes and gentrification of a picaresque and richly historic neighborhood.

Veselka never stops. Always busy, and they always have something I want to eat. It's basis palate is Eastern European - Ukranian officially. Stuff like the barley soup, the stuffed cabbage and the blintzes, All great. Equally burgers and salads and there are always daily specials. IU've been going there for a couple of decades - a lot. Good for people watching. Not to be missed.
