A year later I still remember it as one of the best decisions in a trip filled with good decisions. The food was excellent; the service... More

If you ever walked this street, you must have noticed this funny looking restaurant. I decided to try it, out of curiosity... What a (good) surprise! Not being very familiar with this cuisine, I like to randomly pick something whenever I go there. Never been disappointed so far. The friendly staff and the variety in the menu also makes it...

What a great place! Wonderfully decorated. Staff were helpful & friendly. The food was delicious. I've never dined in a Russian or Eastern European restaurant before. I was slightly nervous I wouldn't like the food. But it was soooo tasty. If I lived in Dublin I would go here all the time. Thanks for a lovely night!

Had a great dinner. A big selection of dishes. Friendly and professional staff. Very competitive prices for the drinks. The food was served in time. For a Monday evening was a perfect place to enjoy a meal and do the business. I will be back definitely.

I've been to this place a couple of times. They serve traditional East European food. I'm not n expert in this type of cuisine, so for me it's ok. The dishes are well presented and the décor is really different of other places around Dublin. The staff is not the most attentive, but I never had any big issue there.... More
