This is how well-made authentic Ukrainian food tastes. Always busy, always open, Veselka ("Rainbow" in Ukrainian) doesn't disappoint. Even if you have to wait a bit for a waiter to get to you, it's well worth it! Enjoy!

Loved the sausage, pirogis and blintzes. The place is authentic and o is the staff, would definitely go back. There is a reason it has been around for so long.
