Restaurant details
Reviewed 16 June 2013

With a craving for Chinese food in the middle of St. Petersburg, we thought we would be out-of-luck until we found Kitay-Gorod on Trip Advisor. With only one review, written in Russian, and a location in a working-class neighborhood, we were not expecting authenticity but were pleasantly surprised. The deciding factor for us was found in the previous reviewer's comment about the large number of Chinese tour groups that came to the restaurant - we decided if it was good enough for Chinese tourists craving a taste of home cooking, it was good enough for us. When we arrived, several large Chinese tour groups were finishing an early dinner. First good good sign. Second good sign was that in style and appearance the restaurant could have been teleported from a suburban strip center in Northern Virginia, outer areas of Houston or LA. Nothing fancy, but it had the ring of authenticity. Third good sign was the management was all Chinese. We were presented with an extensive menu in Russian with a few English translations. After an involved process, in which a few Russian customers pitched in to help, we ordered two small loh mein noodle dishes, twice cooked pork, a sizzling squid dish, and chicken with bamboo shoots. Everything we ordered was well prepared and flavorful - good quality, exactly what we would have expected. With mineral water, our meal came to 1500 rubles. The restaurant is towards the far end of the Nevsky Prospekt before you hit the Neva. Expect a 10 minute walk from the omnibus line.
