Comfort food can be really delicious. However, I wasnt enamored with this place. They serve big portions but I find that it lacked flavor. Food was lukewarm. It wasn't our first choice for Ukrainian food as the other place was closed due to plumbing issues.

Two heaping plates of great food and soft drinks for under $40 - TIP INCLUDED! Service was refreshingly unpretentious and efficient (our server almost cracked a smile when I told her how much we loved the food). Very authentic atmosphere and food. Probably not a...More

do not miss the potato pancakes-the BEST side dish to a yummy omelet. The poppyseed pastries are well worth the calories (you'll walk them off quickly in this interesting part of NY)

Huge portions of Eastern European foods. Our favorite thing is to create a meal from appetizers and enjoy many tastes that way. They are very pleasant and happy to help you with the menu if you have questions. We go every time we are in...More

The dining room was full but with no waiting line on a Friday night. The menu had a broad selection of Eastern European specialties. Our group especially enjoyed the Hungarian goulash and the blintzes.

Restaurant was very quiet when we arrived around 7:00 but by 8:00 was quite lively. In the lower East Side of NYC, most diners were from Eastern Europe. The carbs were it for me! First and foremost, we had pan fried potato pirogies with onions...More

For decades the East Village has been known for good home-cooking eateries --hearty Polish and Ukrainian places -- but these comfort food places are disappearing far too fast, I think of this Ukrainian East Village Restaurant as a hold-out and as a great museum piece...More

There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village,
which offers plenty of unique small businesses
catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college
students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the
old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still
experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned
shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of
the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to
