Never had Bulgarian cuisine prior to dining here, suffice to say my impression and culinary experience was positive. I recommend the garlic shrimp dish. Friendly and attentive waitresses.

We had a wonderful party there, despite the lack of waitstaff. However, serving 40 members of our family can be challenging. They did a fantastic job!

Excellent food, great prices! We ordered 4 things off the menu (garlic potatoes, fried zucchini, seafood platter and salmon crostini)and shared. We got our check and were shocked how low it was for what we had! Definitely would go again!
