“Interesting lunch”
Reviewed 11 March 2014 via mobile

Enjoyed our visit, nice classic stroganoff but no as good as my wife's homemade version (she is Russian) friendly service but food took a while to arrive. Not much atmosphere but it was lunchtime in Shipley. Would visit again if travelling through

“Dont judge a book by its cover!”
Reviewed 1 March 2014

From the outside the Russian Restaurant looks more like a café = especially with the day-time menu taking a prominent position in the window and no sign of an evening menu at all, had we not pre-booked we would have turned tail and left , thank goodness we didn't.

We were made so welcome & never having had Russian food before we weren't sure what to order but our waitress helped us every step of the way and all 3 courses were absolutely delicious - including the fried ice-cream!!! Although the menu is not huge the dishes were so varied that we were spoiled for choice - It was a great shame there weren't many other diners as this restaurant is excellent value.

We enjoyed it so much we are taking our daughter and son in law with us tonight and when we booked the proprietor asked if I would like her to prepare her speciality stuffed peppers for me to try - so that is my starter sorted

“Russia in Shipley!”
Reviewed 20 February 2014

Well......Had such a pleasant evening at Natalya's place in Shipley. We had a warm welcome from the hostess who makes some delicious food and takes a lot of trouble to get it right. I was in the company of my Latvian friend and her (Latvian) friend and it felt like we were in Russia and Shipley at the same time...a heady mix! OK so it was Valentine's night, but it didn't matter a jot that it was in Shipley. It will transport you to a different world with different, exotic and interesting cuisine and most of all the warm and friendly company given. I hope more people will dare to have the adventure. They certainly should give it a try!!!

“Well worth a visit”
Reviewed 1 February 2014 via mobile

It was great to finally get the chance to visit. The Caviar was well worth trying for the first time and Vlad's soup was amazing. Can't wait to go again with friends or family. If your looking for something different than the normal hum drum restaurant then this is it.

Hi Darren,
Many thanks for your kind words!
Unfortunately you placed you review on the Bradford page instead of Wakefield one and we have now our own in Wakefield, see it for yourself
tripadvisor.co.uk/Restaurant_Review-g190729-d6106515-Reviews-The_Russian_Restaurant-Wakefield_West_Yorkshire_England.html
Will it be possible you copy your review to our Wakefield page where it belongs?
I'm looking forward to seeing you together with your friends or family soon! I'll make sure I have enough caviar for you! :-)
Many thanks in advance and all the best,
Vlad
