"The Talisman Restaurant is very different from the run-of-the-mill dining establishments. It is family-run and that shows in the care given to the preparation and presentation of the food and in the personal attention to good service.
The menu features Ukrainian, Russian and Uzbek dishes. The waitress was as comfortable speaking to my companion in Russian as to me in English.
This was a delightful experience. I'll be back!"

"Talisman is a small restaurant in an unremarkable corner shopping area. Inside you'll find a warm environment and a family-like feel, almost like it's the go-to banquet hall for the local community, with a tasteful and manicured interior that's unexpected given the understated surroundings.
The food is simply awesome. The cuisine is centered on Uzbekistan with options drawn from the nearby states. The menu is quite descriptive and the staff is very helpful in regards to making great choices. A craving for borscht brought me to this place and now I'm working my way down the menu!"
