Very pretty exterior and home feeling interior, warm welcomed by the staff who speaks good English. I couldn't judge how authentic are the dishes, but at least they are very Russian to me in all good ways. Recommended to all.

Friendly service, enjoyed the food. The mushroom and the chicken blinis were delicious as was the chicken cutlets. Pickled vegetables had some hits - gherkins and cabbage but pickled garlic a definite miss. Salad with red currant sauce also good.

Had a very ordinary lunch here. The mushroom soup was just OK and the Beef Stroganoff was overcooked. Borscht was also nothing special. Definitely better places in town.More
