Amazing design!

I was there! Restaurant was really well designed, amazing idea to eat with animals. Food was no ao good or not so bad. We ordered beef strongonof, portion was too small. Russian dumplings was good. I'm suggesting this place.

The food is great, the service is friendlier than most places in town, but the discomfort I felt having to watch the neglected animals, completely ruined my meal. If you are even the slightest bit of an animal lover, the depressed, segregated cow and tied-up goat straining for unreachable water will surely distract you from enjoying your evening. At times...

Unlike many Ukrianian restaurants in Moscow "Shinok"'s has a good fusion with modern culinary trends. Its owner (the same as more famous "Pushkin") was brave anough enough to get rid off traditional country decor, fancyworks, pottery and other typical ukrainain Khutor signs you can easily find in other restaurants. Life animals (white and unbeleavably clean goat, peakcocks, phasants) placed in... More

We had read about this restaurant, notably the 'Ukrainian peasant' feel with the livestock and birds behind the glass wall so were intrigued as to how this would work. Although it is definitely an interesting and different touch, we were very pleased with the overall ambiance including the music, layout and lighting. Although I think that we confused our server...

Heard a lot about this restaurant. But visited fir the first time. And was not disappointed. Professional, smily, helpful staff making your visit even more pleasant. Amazing presentation of typical Ukrainian cuisine. Was surprised by the animals and birds behind the glass. But they make you actually feel comfortable. Will definitely come again and again . Big thank you to... More

I was recommended Shinok by a local and it was a recommendation I am grateful for. The food is Russian with a Ukranian influence. Every dish was delicious.Whilst I am not normally a fan of caging animals the live farm yard scene in the middle of the dining area creates a unique setting and the animals look well cared for....

I loved the interior of this restaurant--brick walls, exposed ceiling, modern metal finishings in the bathrooms. It's very modern with an industrial feel. The animal pen doesn't really fit in with the look or feel, but it's still kind of cool. Waiters and staff were professional and very attentive. I went with friends, and though we all liked our meals... More

Shinok offers high level russian and ukrainian food in a nice atmosphere enriched by the farm built inside the restaurant and separated from the main hall by Windows. Quality of food and of service was quite good. I enjoyed vareiniki and salads.

Very nice environment (although the rustic feel that I saw in some older pictures looked better than the modern tables and seats since the refurbishment). The food is really good. I had the best borsch ever in this restaurant, but everything I tried tasted great.
