Still closed. Signs say that it is due to open in May but no sign of any work being done. A pity as it used to serve good food

Decided to give this restaurant a try and have never regretted it. As other reviewers have said, while the other restaurants are not bad, this one certainly has the edge. The staff are very friendly and encourage you to try new dishes, as a vegetarian I was very happy with the choice and quality. Overall a very good place to... More

That's not to say the others are poor (they aren't) but this is the one we keep coming back to. The service is great. The staff are very friendly. They make you very welcome and feel your custom is valued. The menu is varied and has unusual dishes you don't get elsewhere. The special dishes all appear to be cooked... More

I travel around the country a lot on business and having been to Russi's, I have to say it was quite possibly the best Indian restaurant I have been to. Excellent service, unique and different menu and great atmosphere. I may move to Buxton ! Please check it out !

Been to Russi's a few times, staff, service excellent! However, I have always found whatever I ordered has always been too sweet. I don't particularly like sweet food thats supposed to be savoury, but it is probably my own fault in ordering the wrong dish! Overloaded with garlic...you have been warned!

My husband and I were staying for a few days in Buxton and decided to go to Russi after seeing the reviews on TA. It was everything we expected. The staff were unfailingly pleasant and took time to explain a 'special' that was on offer that night. The meal was just fantastic, I had a chicken rogan josh and it... More
