Lower Class & Tacky!

Disappointing decor and food. Cleanliness is poor and atmosphere is dingy and dirty. Very old, outdated ! Psychic reading was expensive and inaccurate.

Went in on to try their psychic readings. I was sent to a young bearded male and although he was polite, he was very inaccurate, all he did was ask me questions about my life and gave me advice about nothing that pertained to my life. This was a complete waste of money, but it was also an hour of... More

Terrible atmosphere, owner Lucy is aggatating at best, food was horrible. The Psychic reading I got was anything but accurate, but I did get a reading years ago from Laura Laforce from the Russian Tea room and she was bang on. I see she has moved on to bigger and better things. Find her and get a great Pscyhic Medium... More

The reading from Marlene was the BEST, I had many readings for many years from Marlene, this time she was spot on with everything. Food and service was very good too.

The service was good, and the food was good, and the restaurant was clean with efficient, friendly and 'discreet' staff. However, I don't recommend you come here for the meal (though I am told they have good desserts including cheesecake and teas) I went to have my fortune told. It was fun. I do this every 5 to 8 years... More

I know the food is kind of mediocre and the waitress is a bit spacey, but I say it's still worth it. For one thing, the Russian Tea is great. (Make sure to have it with cream on the side.) Their standard house tea is only slightly smoky, not overdone like Russian Caravan served in the States. The Russian tea... More

I learned that if you don't connect with your psychic you need to leave the table asap, instead of listening to their bs. Then, you don't have to pay that psychic. I had to pay $80 to a lady who had no clue what she was talking about!

I wanted to go with 3 friends for dinner and a reading of some sort to celebrate a birthday. The readings were really quick (10 min for $22) and the girls did not feel comfortable to stay and eat. The restaurant needs a make over and more information readily available. The website should be updated to explain how the readings... More

The food was very average and I didn't particularly enjoy the tea-leaf reading. It was very superficial as it could have related to anyone.

My Girlfriend of 6 years went there with Friends in April, shortly after their reading she stopped talking to me for the remainder of time she was in Edmonton. Later I was told that the tarot card lady named Chantel told her I was either currently being unfaithful to her and if I was not currently being unfaithful, I would... More
