Hilarious stop. Firstly the food - what a bargain - Pelmeni (Russian ravioli) in various flavors - chicken, beef and pork, vegetarian and possibly seafood (but not sure I interpreted the snail looking insignia correctly). - lovely soup and a couple of beers for 2 people was around 7 Euros. Amazing.
Then in came a gorgeous bunch of kids with little red head scarves (a local basketball team) and it was brilliant to watch - this wonderful man trying to assist them at the buffet -brilliant. Anyway highly recommended for a tasty fill.

I was visiting before but recently I don't like go anymore. Staff are not kind and helpful to ask question. If you are foreigner you can not satisfied with answer. Pelmeni with cheese are very dry. If you are Muslim/Jevish you have to be carefull about pelmeni with pork.

Simple cafeteria style spot in the old town. Great pit stop for lunch or late night fix. Pay by weight, with lots of tasty dumplings available for cheap price. Try it!

XXL Pelmeni is like a drive to 30 years back. Dumpings, good potato-salad (real local potato salad, not just a potato-majonaise mix), adzika and a shot of cool vodka. Even the service is like a soviet time - lady in case without smile... But noone will say you nothing bad, if you get few shots more :)... Dejavu...

...Very good dumplings indeed - I'm sure, that such kind of sortiment is quite hard to find in other places. Will visit it again...
