I had driven by this place a few times and the other night my husband and I went in to check it out. I definitely recommend a trip.. the food seems like a combination of Russian, Korean and Middle Eastern. We started with an appetier of beef/cucumber salad with lots of dill.
There are some 'hybrid' dishes and some quite distictly of one culture or another. Very tasy soups... we had beef noodle and borsch and some great dumplings... there were several types. didn't have the honey cake dessert but others seemed to be enjoying it.

    Are you referring to the restaurant called "Jibek Jolu", sometimes "Jibek Jolu Central Asian Cuisine"?

      Yes... Just re-read my post. Don't know how I managed to leave the name off. Sorry.

      Their name translates to "Silk Road" (the trade route between China and Europe) so they try to incorporate cuisines you'd find along the way.
