Unfortunately, it has recently closed (due immigration issues I think). I never got a chance to try it.

I have to say that if you look for something different ... you need to visit Russian Passion. You would be in for an amazing home cooking experience. Place has a nice decor, lovely staff and authentic Eastern European dishes. I went to Russian Passion on a few occasions with my friends and we were never disappointed with what we got there.

Tiny eatery - would be ideal for small, private/informal occasions. Evening meal must be booked in advance, as are choices from menu. Thoroughly enjoyed freshly cooked, delicious, authentic Russian food. BYOB - no "corkage" charge = a big plus point!!. Staff are mother and daughter - pleasant and friendly.

This restaurant is absolutely fabulous with amazing food that is so well flavoured and seasoned. With BYOB, it works out as incredible value for delicious food, an intimate environment and great service. Maria, the daughter, is attentive and regales guests with tales of Russia, the food components and other interesting stories. Whilst it is not fine dining, it is cosy, intimate and once you try it, you will certainly go back.

Been here about 6 times now for lunch and I love the place! It's fantastic to try Russian food in Edinburgh. All food is homemade to a high standard, the 2 staff are so nice and help you pick what to eat, good hot or cold Russian drinks too! The cafe is always clean with good seating and staff always welcome you! You must visit!
