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.

The reviews that complain of poor service are surprising to me. Can't think of many places with better service so perhaps they've improved over the last year or so. Interior is very strange -- at once posh and rustic (fine glassware and a contrived barnyard behind glass) -- a look and feel that creates a strangeness that was uncomfortable for... More

This trip to Moscow we decided to go back add weer had fond memories and lived the food the. This time was even better with the remodeled stylish interior and fantastic menu!

I liked the atmosphere in Shinok a lot. It is a bit dark there, but very cozy, and the animals and the small cow in their little indoor show (including the farmer lady taking care of them) certainly add a bit of flavor. The menu has a few Ukrainian things, but is mostly mainstream food. Yet, we liked our choices... More

We had a large group eat here 2 weeks ago - the service, food, and atmosphere was great. The have recently renovated which really opened up and modernized the space yet the lady behind the glass with the cow, goat, chickens and peacocks is still there! I highly recommend this traditional Ukrainian restaurant when traveling to Moscow!

Ate here last year, and they have remodeled into a more modern atmosphere; still have the animals and caretaker behind glass, giving something entertaining. We had a large party there, and the food and service were excellent!

I loved the atmosphere and the food! It has a very warm feeling about it and the fun fact that they have a small enclosed barn in the center is fun.

Shinok is part of the Dellos empire (Cafe Pushkin, Turandot, etc.), and is a fun place with very good food and a great atmosphere! It is lively and fun, and the real attraction is the little farm in the center of the restaurant. Try to get a table right next to one of the windows so you can watch the... More
