THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Kuzine Restaurant Review

: Finding Russian-Turkish food anywhere is unusual, but finding it tucked away in a suburban housing complex is astonishing---and especially when the food is above par, portions are immense, and the price is bargain-basement stuff. You can’t say much for the d├ęcor, which is simple, well-scrubbed, and totally lacking in pizzazz. On the other hand, you’ve come to eat, and eat you will. The chummy waitstaff describe the unfamiliar: what are lahmacun, we wondered? Or iskender kebab? As it turned out, everything sounds tempting, and we were alarmed at the size of our order: Russian borscht, freshly made manti swimming in yogurt, a mountain-sized portion of doner kebab, the Turkish kaser pide (not the best choice, alas), and the Hungarian goulash. We begged to take away our leftovers, which the smiling chap wrapped up while urging us to finish up with his rice pudding or baked apple. We declined, feeling we had somehow insulted his family, cooking in the kitchen. This is a must-return kind of place.
