Organizing an anniversary celebration or a birthday party?

Delimiter

Everyone has events in their life that should not disappear with ease, there are moments that should never be forgotten! We must remember to have fun and enjoy life! Celebrating holidays is not just a tradition, it is an inner need. Emotional saturation and satisfaction is only achieved when the memory is positive and memorable. We can come together or offer you an idea, a style, a theme for the event, and we will be there whenever you need us. Your event is not just the day when relatives, acquaintances and friends gather together to join your joy, success and emotion … This is also the day full of trembling, feeling and strong emotion…

The restaurant has 3 rooms and we can host any type of event from birthdays, weddings or dinner of business, baby showers.

Balkanika restaurant is the one-stop for a great party.

A few words from happy customers

"Excellent selection of eastern bloc foods. A bit of slow service on a quiet Sunday night, the food was fantastic and Nadya was very nice. Will definitely return."
"Who would think you can find a Balkan restaurant in suburban Chicago. This place, though hidden a bit, is very good. We wanted a lighter meal and was able to find a grilled seafood salad and grilled octopus salad along with some garlic chicken as an appetizer. All the flavors are bold though one might find it a bit salty. That and a service that was a bit slow is the reason why I went with 4 instead of 5 stars. If near the airport and looking for food a bit more interesting, this place is quite good."
"Great European place, my go to restaurant every time when I'm in Chicago, food is great service is awesome too, the patio/bar in amazing during the summer months. Being from Bulgaria and living in Minneapolis, I really do miss Bulgarian food and this place helps out a lot with that. Try it out, you won't regret it..."
