Personal Favorites

$$ 4/5 stars Oasis Mediterranean Grill 8697 Fields Ertel Cincy OH  OK – I agree, I was not sure what Russian food is but this is excellent.  Chef is from Uzbekistan and the food is great.  I started with the mixed salad – cold salad that combined several ingredients that included eggplant that was tremendous.  I would recommend the meat pies that were outstanding.  I ended up with wonderful lamb kabob.  Give this a try.  Located across the street from Steak and Shake near I-71 South exit on Fields Ertel. 1 visit
