A Juneau institution of Russian dumplings. Don't expect a menu, don't expect anything served elsewhere... expect meat or potato dumplings with garnishments in a styrofoam container with plastic utensils. It is what it is and has been for as long as an institution needs to...More

This place is amazing. A must visit. The pels are incredible, but the dive-vinyl spinning-sometimes grumpy-hipster service is what adds to the experience. Freezers, paper towels, all on display and scattered about-still a must.

Wow! This was an unexpected suprise at midnight. My order was half meat, half potato. Very good. Great flavor. A little oasis after a evening of drinks and meeting new friends.

The dumplings were fine. I preferred the potato filled ones over the meat. The fixings made them more enjoyable. The bread was okay but was too cold so it felt a bit dry. The price was fair for the amount of dumplings in an order....More

On several cold rainy days with not much time for lunch I stopped in and devoured their delicious meat dumplings. This is a cosy no frills friendly place. A hit with crew and local staff who work close by.

Fun, simple dumpling shop. Great service. Friendly atmosphere. Locally owned. I enjoyed the plain potato dumplings with sour cream, butter, and curry. My daughter had the meat dumplings with "the works" and that was a hit, too.

My sister-in-law from India, heard about this place so we searched it out. The place is a hole in the wall, but the dumplings did not disappoint! Especially the meat ones with a dab of sour cream. There is something to the KISS method (keep...More
