We visited Rus Uz with another couple and arrived around 4:30pm for an early dinner. As expected, the place was pretty empty, just one couple was there eating. We were seated and... read more

It was my first time and I and all my friends at the table were very impressed with the quality of all dishes tried. Manti and plov tasted exactly how they do back home in Central Asia! Service was fast and friendly and atmosphere inside is very comforting. I am happy about this discovery!

This was our second trip to Russia-Uz. Laziza our young friend from Uzbekistan has guided us well. This time Manti, Plof and Langmon were on our list to try. I tried Plof on our first visit. So, Langmon it was for me. We shared Manti as an appetizer. Both dishes were very good. The Langmon was a little spicy. The... More

OK, I usually do not review a restaurant more than once unless it has gone down hill or suddenly improved. Since it had been a while since I was able to visit Rus-Uz, I thought that a re-look was appropriate. Bottom line: I think that the food there is great. Meals are presented with flavors and flavoring not found in... More

We were early at 5 pm and in a hurry so were glad that there few in the restaurant on a weekday. I've been in Russia and Central Asia and was curious whether the food would be authentic. We were very pleased with our meals. My Plov was just like I remembered it from Central Asia, where it is ubiquitous,... More

I love Russian food. I spent a lot of time around Russian food in college and am always in search of a good Russian restaurant. Rus-Uz is cute, has a great selection of infused vodkas, and has decent Russian food--not the best I've had but good for the price and I would go back. We started with an order of... More

Visited on a Monday with coworkers. We arrived around 6 pm and we're instantly seated. Restaurant has around 20 tables, 4 were occupied. Our table had for chairs, but would have been better suited for two chairs. We felt cramped. Waiter was quick to stop by and make recommendations. We ordered #8 and #9 beers. The waiter returned quickly with... More
