  • Classic Eastern European diner. High points: corned beef hash, pastrami, roast beef, breakfast. Low points: skippable burgers.
  • Jeffrey from 'Wichcraft says: "Ukranian specialties are awesome (Fried pierogies with buttered onions, kielbasa, etc) Try everything on the menu at least once"
  • Try the corned beef hash, "served with two eggs, toast and potatoes, an order costs barely over $5 and is packed with beefy flavor."
  • Try every type of pierogi that they have!!!! SOOO delicious!!!
  • Best perogies in NYC! Ask for potato and cheese, fried with onions and sour cream!
  • Old school, counter-seating-only Ukrainian joint. Go for the fried pierogi and the best Kasha in the EV, and always say yes to their onions; they make everything better.
  • Best Borscht and Pierogies left in the East Village. Ukie National Home's Restaurant a close second.
  • , , , , grechka s kotletoy)))
  • Order the borscht! So good...
  • Daily specials make for a tough choice against the pierogis
  • Best counter in the east village. Also, it's tiny, and old school. When it's slow, it's quietand that's heavenly.
  • Hole-in-the-wall Ukrainian restaurant with a homey feel. Love love love the fried pierogies with onions, never liked pierogies till I had these!
  • This place is begging to be tried for a great home style diner and tasty #easterneuropean dishes!
  • Hands down my favorite counter in NYC. Get the combo plate with pierogi w/ fried onions, beets, stuffed cabbage, and kielbasa. Be sure to ask for some homemade bread!
  • The best latkes in the East Village.
  • Try the Goulash
  • Genuine diner food! Perfect amount of picky old local men who've been coming here for decades and grease!
  • Vegetarian options include tasty pierogis and stuffed cabbage with mushroom gravy. Great gem of the East Village for comfort food.
  • It's 6 am and I'm literally dreaming about the fried pierogis I last had here a couple of days ago. The onions they're served with HAVE to be fried in crack, they're so addicting. Delicious!
  • Meatloaf sandwich with gravy and onions on challah toast
