Considering the location in London Knightsbridge it is not a cheap place. The menu offers almost all russian specialities. Food was excellent and staff very friendly.

Food was great, we especially enjoyed the sturgeon, the borscht and the bread.

I was several times to the Mari Vanna restaurant in Moscow and just loved everything there. The London version is very nice. Decor is beautiful and classy. All the russian specialities can be found on the menu. The food is authentic russian. Location in Knightsbridge is perfect.

Having been a few times at Mari Vanna already, I’m still impressed by the standards of food and service. Restaurant premises are extremely well decorated, it feels like you visiting your grandma's place back in the good ol' days. Unpretentious food is full of flavour and has a home-made feel to it. The menu is very comprehensive and one might... More

Went for a dinner with my boyfriend. Everything was lovely, starting from friendly hostess and being full with delicious food. The only thing which need an improvement is a wine waiter, who forgot about our table as soon as he poured our first glasses.
