Russian food is what I like. Kvass is quite good, dessert is soso, but acceptable, vareniki and sour cream are great, pelmeni, salted fish, mushrooms are deoicious! The place takes me away from daily boring life and I can spend hours there with friends. Music is relaxing early evening and more like energizing later on.
By the time after 10 p.m. the restaurant looks more like Middle Eastern smoking paradise.

Sometimes the food is really good but once I was served a Greek salad with something like rotten tomatoes at the bottom of my plate. And another time I had tomatoes+grated cheese and garlic and cheese did not smell fresh. I asked them to change the dish. They changed asap and brought me apologies for that.
As far as people accept their fault, I feel understood, so I am coming back. Unfortunately, there is not much of a choice for Russian food anyway.
The place has a promotion now. 58 yuan business lunch. Sounds like a real bargain) It has just appeared, I have not tried it yet.

Great is you're after a night on the town, smoke some hookah, drink beer and hang outside while people watching. Make sure not to order any Russian food, as it truly gives it a bad name. Nothing is authentic, fresh or even resembling real Russian food. If you're desperate for something, get a salad and some lamb rice, that is slightly passable for the real thing...

Despite being Russian, this place serves on of the best shisha in Guangzhou. As a shisha fan, I come to Arbat every night when I am in Guangzhou.
Shishas are new snd clean, flavors are great, and staff are very helpful and always smiling.
Food is good and well served.

My favourite dish here is dumplings in the pot, they are really good! the service is excellent, the staff is very attentive. Location of this restaurant is very good:you will be sitting on the busy street, watching people passing while enjoying good food.
