My first visit to a Russian restaurant.
The waitress was extremely friendly and helpful suggesting dishes.
The food was amazing, and the presentation was great.
If you are in the area, do yourself a favor and dine here, you won’t be disappointed.

I came here for the first time and absolutely loved this place.

I have a Russian background and can confirm that the food is delicious and authentic.

For those who are unfamiliar with Russian food, I would recommend the classic dishes everyone should try: Ukrainian “Borscht”, Russian “Pelmeni”, Ukrainian “Vareniki” with Potato. Served with sour cream on the side.

The interior is clean and roomy. It is set up like a banquet hall but they do serve food like a restaurant.

The staff is friendly and all speak English and Russian.

The place is a bit difficult to find because the sign is small but other than that, I’ll be back for more authentic Russian food!

My mother’s family is from Eastern Europe, and they cooked with Russian influences. I love cabbage rolls like my mother made. I nearly wept upon trying the rolls from Terrace cafe. They were just like I remember, but better (don’t tell mom).

I have enjoyed every dish that I gave tried (stroganoff, borscht, carrot salad, beet salad, to name my other favorites).

The food is fresh, healthy, and several wheat free options are on the menu. It is my favorite food in southwest Houston!

Ukrainian CUISINE

Being the second largest county in Europe, Ukraine borders the Black Sea and consists of a variety of fertile plains and plateaus throughout the nation. Its cuisine is heavily influenced by the rich dark soil (chornozem) from which its ingredients come and often involves many components.

The Ukrainian cuisine incorporates a variety of different food branches (carbohydrates, fats, protein, fruits and vegetables) due to the large size of the country and the plentiful edible resources. Traditional Ukrainian dishes often experience a complex heating process – “at first they are fried or boiled, and then stewed or baked. This is the most distinctive feature of Ukrainian cuisine”.


Often referred to as the “breadbasket of Europe”, the Ukrainian cuisine emphasizes the importance of wheat and grain to the Ukrainian people and its often tumultuous history with it. The majority of Ukrainian dishes descend from ancient peasant dishes based on plentiful grain resources such as rye as well as staple vegetables such as potato, cabbages, mushrooms and beetroots. Ukrainian dishes incorporate both traditional Slavic techniques as well as other European techniques, a by product of years of foreign jurisdiction and influence.
