Some of the best food in town. I am constantly craving their borscht! We love calling ahead and getting takeout. Can't go wrong with any of the sandwiches and salads.. And of course the pierogis! Friendly staff.. All around great place.

I have been there during the day time and for the 5 course Russian / Kiev dinners. This is a fantastic place to go to network with other people with similar tastes in life. No matter when I am there I always meet somebody new and we always have a fantastic time together talking about our commonalities.

We were 3 for lunch. The hot borscht soup was ok, full of flavor but it had a lot of sweetness to counterbalance the sourness. It was not beet red but a light golden color and was more like a broth with vegetables, mostly diced potato and shredded cabbage. Next we had Pierogi and it was strange that some had... More

Just happened upon this place after we left the airport in Allentown. Its in a small town just outside the airport but OMG!!! HOMEMADE PIROGUES!!! My mother always makes pirogues but not homemade. But oh lord are these good. I had the Reuben, my brother had the pirogues, and my mom had the cabbage and noodles. Everything was great here!... More

I was already impressed with the food- just not the location or the inside it needs a little more upgrade, and a more welcoming environment. All in all the food is great.

We went for their special Kiev Dinner and are still full the next day. Vica and her Mom created a great atmosphere for a fantastic meal. 5 courses of homemade yummy food! If your plate was empty more food appeared on it (and so did some complementary vodka). We were there for lunch many times but this was our first... More
