The authentic Russian food was not great except the Borscht! The Phyrahi was dry and kind of inedible! Not too many restaurants in the town itself so I guess it is probably the only option!

The food here was excellent with a wide choice of dishes (including Russian (Russian emigrants settled here over 100 years ago)), our server, Samantha was superb. Local beers, etc. Could do with a bit of a 'makeover' a la Gordon Ramsey's TV show.

My 16 year old grandson and I ate dinner at the Omega on the last day of our 2800 mile road trip. The restaurant was very clean and had a nice, homey atmosphere. We had dinner. The restaurant like many in Grand Forks offered Russian and Canadian (American) food. I had the chicken Kiev and my grandson had the fish... More

Grand Forks is a centre of Russian Doukhobor culture in the southern Kootenay region of British Columbia. This restaurant on Highway 3 next to the Grandby River serves Russian dishes plus a range of other cuisines.

We stopped at the Omega looking for some Russian food. Years ago, a stop in Grand Forks always meant great Russian food - borscht, phyrahi, Galoopsti. Voreniki and bread. Not any more. My wifes parents were from the Ukraine and Yogoslavia and her mother was a fantastic cook. Borscht to die for, cabbage rolls brimming with flavour, pyrogis with delicious... More

I was in Russia 3 weeks ago and therefore tried the Borscht at this restaurant which I do not taste any similarity as the Russian. Other food which we ordered are not traditional as well. May be modified for Canadian,
