I was told about this place from my friend, Derrick a while ago, but never made it out until last week. Man, I am regretting not making it out here sooner because the food was delicious! This is the place to go if you ever wanted to try Kazahk or Russian food. Also, you can score on some strong Russians beers for a good price which that alone makes this place AWESOME! hah

Talk about authentic, this place didn’t even have an English menu until maybe a month or so ago. Still, I had Derrick order for all of us. Don’t let the Korean workers fool you. They may know some Korean or English, but no guarantee. Good luck^^

This isn’t on the English menu. It’s on the Kazakhstan menu, and I believe it’s number 21. This is the crowd favorite, so order it!

    I believe the Golumpki is on the English menu, but its under a different name and number. Mikhail and I couldn't figure what the English menu was missing! (I could be wrong though…)

    Just below the restaurant is a Kazakh store. You can buy the Baltika beers to take home there as well as all sorts of foods and foreign products.

    This place is delicious.
