Russian & Uzbek eats (kebabs, salads, dumplings & more) served in cozy digs with traditional decor. Better here then in many of the other local restaurants of this type. Portions are good, flavorings and presentation good. I just wish I could eat more so I...More

not much ambiance but fast and delicious food if you like Russian/ Uzbek cuisine. Very inexpensive, it was overcrowded on Saturday night but we were still able to have a dinner conversation despite loud "neighbors". Menu offers nice variety with some vegetarian choices.
