Three of us had dinner here July 6. It is a bit of a challenge to find as it is in a row of restaurants with a ubiquitous entrance. Once you climb the stairs to the second floor, you will find a spacious and comfortable layout. We had been to this restaurant several years ago and found the new... read more

Minuses: not close from the metro Pluses: Visited based on recommendation. Found a table for us despite not having booked. Great interior and convivial atmosphere. Food did not disappoint and in keeping with surroundings. 3rd trip to Moscow and this by far the best restaurant I've visited.

Tried a variety each of which was good and recommend a visit. Pickled tomatoes were sweet, Borscht outstanding and buck wheat a real treat.

Everything is great in this restaurant: food, service and atmosphere. I have been to quite a few restaurants in Moscow but this one is definitely the best I've tried so far. The food is simply delicious and I particularly recommend the starts and the yummy home-made bread. I am a bit sorry for the animals, especially the cow, but I... More

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

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.

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
