The cornbread appetizer with feta cheese, and other condiments was good. Mixed grill was excellent, as were the Balkan potatoes. Spartak chocolate torte was delicious, but maybe not quite large enough to share. :)

The cheese bread "buras" is amazingly good as is their bread. My go to comfort food is the goulash. Interesting foods.

Wasn't sure what to expect...but this is my new favorite food group. We had Sataras, a Pita and Buerek. All very flavorful. And even though we live 30+ minutes away we will be going back because the food and the service are worth the trip.

From Our Editors

There's something magical about the bread at Balkan Restaurant. The aroma of freshly baked lepinja, a traditional flat bread, hits diners as soon as they enter the restaurant, and just like that they're transported to a place that's impossible to pinpoint on a map. That's because the cuisine on the menu draws influences from numerous cultures, including Bosnia, Turkey, Hungary, and many other European nations. The aforementioned flat bread is perfect for sopping up every last bit of hungarian beef goulash, bulking up a meal of stuffed cabbage, or pairing with balkan burgers filled with oozing mozzarella cheese.

Despite the cuisine's cosmopolitan nature, the chefs at Balkan Restaurant prefer to keep the preparation simple. They use small amounts of spice and cook the food mostly in water, which they make with a top-secret combination of hydrogen and oxygen atoms. The resulting cuisine is both light and flavorful—especially when paired with one of the sauces they create from natural vegetable juices. This simplicity is echoed in the decor, which consists of a few rows of tables and a small bar surrounded by walls studded with photographs. All of this leaves the focus exactly where it should be: on the food.
