Worth a visit, though it could be better. The appetizers are only so-so and rely too much on the qualities of “fried” and “bready.” The manti and the fried pasta with lamb (your best choice) were both quite good. This is the unusual restaurant where the main courses are better than the small dishes. The salads have that Russian mayonnaise thing going, ugh. I liked what I had, they don’t have enough variety here, but still at the very least you should go. It also draws an interesting crowd of Uzbekis and Russians. Right near Ballston Metro.
