Place is located in the city center, pelmieni are really good and made fresh. We took sibirian and big meat pielmieni both were fine. Atmosphere is cozy and friendly. Maybe there is not much space but we like it very much. We will come back.

This is a small inconspicuous "fast food" that specializes in dumplings. There are quite a few varieties of dumplings freshly prepared as you order. The place has limited seating but is apparently very popular with the locals. Definitely a good lunch or quick-dinner option as...More

Tverskaya can’t be discovered with just a first
glance, the neighborhood is shaped around a long
street populated with well-known shops and brands. But
it’s more than shopping that makes this place
interesting. Take a few steps into the streets running
parallel to the main artery to discover the charm just
behind the mighty Stalinist style architecture. Comfy

You could probably ask but, as the previous comment states, the majority of the menu is wheat flour based.
