A Great Place

5 Posted on 07 / 27 / 2014

I've eaten here twice, there is a good selection for vegans and they even had carob desserts. I had an eggplant/tomato salad, a stew made from TVP and chickpeas, a coconut/date dessert and fresh carrot juice. It was all delicious, well seasoned and not too salty. The bill was about US$14, very reasonable. Some English is spoken, and they will fill your water bottle with filtered water if you ask. Also, they have free wifi.

Pros: Selection, Quality, Price

Plentiful Options But a Little Bland

4 Posted on 06 / 05 / 2013

This busy and large cafeteria-style restaurant mostly caters to a student crowd. They claim to offer Indian cuisine, and optically the dishes looked like Indian food, but it didn’t taste like Indian food in the least. No matter. If you don’t expect it to taste like Indian food, it tasted fine, if a little bland. As usual, the server had limited English capabilities, so navigating the cafeteria line wasn’t easy. I got a chicken “curry” with a large mound of kasha, a big bowl of “dal,” a potato pierogi (?) and a “curried” cous-cous salad. (I ordered so much food because this was both lunch and dinner). My taste buds didn’t sing, but the food was filling and satisfying, so I’d consider the meal a success. Cost for this two-meals-in-one was about $20.

Next door to Rada and K is Adi, a tiny vegetarian grocery store. I didn’t see any must-haves, but it’s a useful resource. Watch the hours—they closed promptly at 6 pm.

Inexpensive, clean. Hare Krishna vegetarian (half dishes with dairy products) with good selection of vegan food. Soups!!! Soups are necessary in cold russian climate!)))

A cheap and nice veggie restaurant

5 Posted on 01 / 08 / 2012

The newest veggie restaurant in town. Has A la carte -list but basically most of the a la carte is available also from the line - so you can choose to queue and get your dishes straight away (and see what you are ordering) or sit and wait. There are some vegan options in every food section from salads to desserts. Staff speaks some English but as everywhere in Russia, basic understanding and knowledge of Russian helps. Service is fast and friendly and the food is inexpensive and delicious - although in my opinion a bit too greasy. The yeast-free rye bread that you can buy home is excellent.

Pros: inexpensive, fast, friendly staff
Cons: greasy food, crowded, religious

Cosy and inexpensive

3 Posted on 12 / 21 / 2011

I've been to this place twice, and, like everything in the world Rada and K has both positive and negative sides. To begin with good parts, i'd like to say, that this is really inexpensive and yet cosy place. It's a very popular little restaurant and therefore is always crowded, and it's nice to see so many friendly faces around. Lactovegetarians and Krishna lovers will definetely find Rada admirable, for the choice of lactoveg options is great. Unfortunately, vegan part of the Rada's menu leaves much to be desired, but i'm sure things will get better with this place. The only really negative thing about Rada i have to tell is that when i first checked it, it ended up with me having food poisoning. I ordered indian soup with mung beans and fake meat (soy) in tomatoe souce, which appeared to be tomatoe-and-sour cream souce. The meat was served cold, so i'm afraid it happened to be the reason of my poisoning. Still, cause i wanted to give this place a second chance, i visited it again and had vegan meals only. Everything was fine, no disasters, so i think i might want to go there again one day. But only if the vegan menu is increased and gets fancier, of course.

Pros: healthy cousine, friendly stuff, no smoking
Cons: small portions, limited options, poor food quality
