“Excellent food”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

Went here with a large group and was very impressed with the food and service. All meals were delicious with large servings which was unexpected. Would recommend to anyone after a nice night out in Moscow.

“fantastic place!”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

very upscale, perfect service and decadent food, its a feels like you are in a Cinderella castle for adults, all of that gold and antics in decor. Love pirogki with deer and juniper, great chinese dumplings, homemade ice creams and wild strawberry sorbe

“Don't go here for tour group lunches!”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

I have no way of knowing how good this restaurant is as an evening al a carte venue. We came here for lunch with a tour group from the Volga Dream river cruise, and were very disappointed.
Over the top decor, but you can't eat the decor!
Indifferent waiters, very slow service (only 3-4 tables of customers) and very mediocre food.
A salad with greens over too-sweet duck, and then beef stroganoff that tasted canned. Strawberry sorbet was decent but ordinary. It took over an hour and half to get these 3 courses.

“An operatic fantasy”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

This is one of the most opulent restaurants I have ever been in, with the most fabulous decorations inside the cupola reflecting the oriental opera after which it is named. Be warned: this restaurant has a _very_ discreet sign outside; we walked past it 3 times before going in on the off-chance that this was the place.

The food is very good, and fun too; there are dry-ice deserts, and cryogenic cocktails. The smoked salmon starter was very good, the mongolian beef very tasty. Starting off with a glass of Champagne helps too.

The wine by the glass (Margaux) was less then stellar, but everything else was so lovely that I am happy to give a very high ranking. We paid 9000 roubles for 2, being relatively careful. This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

“A Must Go in Moscow!”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

This restaurant is one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. The ambiance is exquisite, the service impeccable, and the food wonderful. It is located in a very nice area of town so you must come dressed in your finest.
