Having spent a year in Russia I have eaten lots of varied dishes and this is as good as anything I experienced! Tasty borsch, highly recommend beer snacks and goulash with tender pieces of beef. We tried buckwheat porridge as a side and it was lovely. Brilliant owner who was happy for me to try my rusty language skills!! Beware the Baltika dark beer called Porto, hubby had two and at 7% he aas a bit tipsy!!!!
In all an excellent experience and would highly recommend.

I find it hard to express in words the delight, but I just recommend and suggest you come to the Shipley centre and enjoy Shipley surroundings and enjoy this time together, with Shipley Natas Restaurant
Have a good morning and a good afternoon.

I had no idea what to expect. I had only ever seen this place as a daytime café so when a friend suggested a visit for an evening meal I was apprehensive. How wrong I was! Our party (7 of us) were the only people present. My friend had prebooked us in as a birthday outing for one of our group. Staff had decorated the room with balloons for the birthday girl. They had even bought her a card and bunch of roses, which was so thoughtful and was only a precursor to a wonderful evening. The ladies (staff) were attentive but not obtrusive. The food was EXCELLENT! I had the Lamb Tchanakhi. WOW. I am so used to food being served "hot" when they mean warm. Not so here, it was piping hot, I had to let it stand a minute, this is how it should be served. Yes I went for the fried ice cream too, what a revelation. Value for money - I'd say so!
This place is a must try

Great food, friendly service. Couldn't believe they opened up just for us. Will be back for the Goulash ;-)

Enjoyed our visit, nice classic stroganoff but no as good as my wife's homemade version (she is Russian) friendly service but food took a while to arrive. Not much atmosphere but it was lunchtime in Shipley. Would visit again if travelling through
