“Surprised”
Reviewed 20 May 2014 via mobile

Have been several times to russian restaurant but never tried anything lime that: dear heart, moose liver, frozen fish, frozen meat, mixed caviar and a variety of other food i cannot give a name. There was surely duck, rabbit, chicken and all served in a different way. The atmosphere is like to be in the woods with trees and an helicopter in a corner. A huge variety of tipical food could be bought downstairs and clothing is also available. I really enjoyed all what eaten a part from the waitress that asked not to be photographed....but are you working or not in a public place???

“interesting food”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

I went here when on business with locals of Moscow. The food is clearly of good quality but be prepared to try new things.. Eg frozen (not just raw) food. I'd advise going here with Russian speakers as this is a very unique experience. Worth trying

“Expensive, but worth it”
Reviewed 2 March 2014 via mobile

As everyone says....it is not just expensive, but very expensive. The reason is that you are going to eat and drink some very unusual and untypical things. These items come direct from hunters in Siberia and the north and therefore cost a lot to transport and store. For example, there is a fish which is deep frozen the minute it is caught and then it served directly to you in carpaccio style. As the fish melts in your mouth, the flavour is incredible. As a one off visit, it is highly recommended. Cheaper than a trip to the far north for sure.

“Tasty and original”
Reviewed 13 January 2014

The restaurant is really nice. The owners are outdoor enthusiasts, organising extreme trips across Russia and not only. Most of the receipes were gathered from these trips. Some of them may sound very unusual, but everything is very tasty. The restaurant is above average in terms of money, even for Moskow. They also have a nice shop with all kind of original products (i.e. mammouth ivory artcrafts).

“Ideal for trappers and well healed travellers!”
Reviewed 21 October 2013

Simply amazing food in this deceptively simple restaurant
Decor is limed chunky wood tables and chairs ,live fire and crashed helicopter
The success in the food is not so much in the cooking but in the sourcing
For the dedicated gourmet ,I would be surprised if you do not find foods you have never eaten
We stared with Straganina of Mukson,which is deep frozen fish from the far north eaten frozen with a choice of relishes,delicious. Also a wooden tasting platter of wild horsemeat in aspic ,reindeer tongue ,venison heart stuffed with rabbit pate,wild duck,venison liver pate all served with delicious breads. My main was cutlets of wild boar with reindeer cutlets ,served rare delicious ,also stir fried bracken tips in garlic,will have to try this myself
Desert was wild berries from the urals which are also used to make drinks,cloudy berries,fox berries etc. The wine list is world wide and nothing exceptional but the horseradish flavoured vodka was
After dinner you can go to the boutique and buy glorious sculptures of bears mamouths etc made from wale bone and mamouths ivory,Siberian knives Woolf pelts and many other really yummy souvenirs
All in all an unmissable experience
