It's most certainly American and those red booths are the real thing - the only Russian elements here are the electric sockets. You'll hear more English spoken in this diner than anywhere else in Moscow, which adds to the otherworldly home-away-from-home experience. The menu spins out all the classics in authentic style, including huge waffles, burgers and giant milkshakes made with Oreo cookies, massive breakfast and huge filter coffees from the pot. American diners are now de rigeur in Moscow but Starlite are still the original and best. They now have five 24hour venues with the original being the giant silver truck in a leafy garden near Mayakovskaya metro (Bol. Sadovaya 16), Oktyabrskaya metro (Korovy Val, 9a), metro Universitet (Vernadskogo Ave., 6) although our favourite is the latest spacious venue on Stastnoy bulvar - metro Pushkinskaya.

We speak about the Starlite located at the Auchan city. We have been there many times. The very first time because we were looking for some American style breakfast and we did not like it because the waiter and the kitchen messed up our order. Anyway we decided to go back because they deserved a second chance and the Manager... More

used to go here quite often, it's a great place to get american-style food, and the design is really cute. I love the burgers and milkshakes!

This was an interesting experience. It is an American style diner in the heart of Moscow Russia. After having been in Russia for a week, it was nice to see this place. The decor is that of a 50s style US diner. The burger I had was not the freshest, but nothing I had in Russia seemed very fresh, so... More

50's american diner in the heart of Moscow. love the decor, get a booth rather than a table. all the staff were helpful, menus in Russian and English so you choose what you want and point if you don't speak the lingo. although our excellent waiter new enough English to my 8 words of Russian so that between us we...

The place is an attempt to recreate an atmosphere of circa 50's American diner. Hence red benches/chairs, polished metal, life-size mannequins of celebrities and the Statue of Liberty at the entrance. To keep with tradition of American Diner it is also open 24x7. There is a waiter call buttons at the table so one don't have to pantomime to call... More

If you like bourgers and Coke or beer, you will like it ) A good place for a lunch with friends if you are very hungry. Quite a big menu, food is really not bad for such kind of place, but sometimes you have to wait for quite a long time. The only thing: if you like light food, search... More

I experienced unbearably slow service here today. We were seated promptly, and all drinks came promptly after we ordered them. Then one sandwich came out. We had order two sandwiches, a salad, and pasta from the children's menu beside the drinks. The sandwich was finished in a leisurely fashion, and no other other food appeared. We asked the wait staff... More

On arrival your party is informed of a correct waiting time, sometimes you are seated at the bar and served promptly with a drink. Menu is classic American, food is cooked as ordered (medium-rare burger is served exactly as ordered, crispy bacon is served crispy) - waitresses are as friendly as could be in Moscow and food is real, without...
