This place is fun and has cool sausage like things (cevapi). Food is hearty. I think they might be cash only?

Good, informal cafe/restaurant in Long Island City serving local dishes from Sarajevo. The food is hearty and tasty. We enjoyed the stuffed cabbage served with a side of cold, mashed potato and chicken kebab over a salad with feta. The desserts were excellent, especially the baklava which is a little dryer and more full of fruit than the Turkish variety.... More

I was at the Sarajevo restaurant in Astoria with my husband. The cevapcici were great! They had the authentic cevapcici taste and were served in the "lepinja" bread. The whole restaurant is very authentic. All food is hand-made and they do not serve anything else other than authentic Bosnian cuisine!! We have been to many places trying cevapcici before, but...

Cevabdzinica Sarajevo is a restaurant in Astoria, NYC. It’s on the corner of 34th Avenue and 38th Street. What does it have? Okay, let’s start with what I’m drinking, it’s a no sugar added soda. It’s made in Slovenia but mainly consumed in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The Bread: Well, the bread. It’s amazing. That’s it. It’s amazing! Cheese Burek: The... More

We ordered the cevaps combo and cheese pie. My boyfriend who is from Sarajevo, said it’s the best thing he has eaten in NYC. I agreed. Please check this place out. Don’t be scared of the language barrier. The desserts are great too. All portions are big. We couldn’t finish ours and we had left overs. This restaurant was well... More

Not sure if this is the same place as it listed in Long Island City, but we went to the one in Astoria, Queens. Very small, not crowded, and the food was good. A little salty for my taste, but interesting - we had never had Bosnian food so didn't know what to expect. My one complaint is the mashed... More

Wonderful place to eat! I was in Astoria visiting the Museum of the Moving Image—I was walking around the block and read some positive Yelp reviews on my phone. It's cheap, filling, delicious food. TV was blasting a European soccer game on TV and the regulars were enjoying the game, as well as conversation. It felt like a true neighborhood... More

I just took my daughters out to dinner at a delicious hole-in-the-wall Bosnian restaurant in Astoria, near Steinway St. It is not a place to bring the office staff for a party, but it would be a fun place to bring a bunch of friends on a cold day. It is a meat eater's paradise, but halal style so no... More

Us Bosnians know how to find Bosnian food... Indeed we did! We are this places long years customers...long years... And with trying many other similar places, this one beats them all. The food is scrumptious! We go monthly for cevape and we are never disappointed. Should i mention I drive over 20 miles to this place...Sometimes I order fresh, undone... More
