Worst restaurant I've ever been to. Would have given it zero stars if I could. I don't understand the 5 star reviews given by others. SAVE YOUR MONEY, IT TRUUELY IS TERRIBLE!!!

The presentation is nice as well. The décor and ambiance are very Ukrainian. There is a dance floor and live music usually on the weekends. They also have a VIP... More
