With all of the Russian immigrants working in the tech industry in this area, I have often wondered why there are not more Russian restaurants. We stumbled into this family-owned, neighborhood place after catching a movie at the local theater and we loved it. The décor is Russian red, and pretty spare but the host/owner was friendly. The menu was... More

It's no longer in San Bruno...it's in Redwood City: 2086 Broadway St, Redwood City, CA 94063.0 I have never had Russian food before and was very surprised at how truly delicious it was. Flavors I am not used to: sublime. We had the beet salad, beef stroganoff, and dumplings. Very clean; great service. I will come back again and again.

This is the second time I have visited this restaurant. It is a small place, just off El Camino Real in San Bruno. There appears to be ample on street parking and there is a lot nearby. I was with a friend—a regular here—and we ordered cabbage rolls, chicken stew and beef stroganoff and asked to have the food served... More

This is a true hidden gem: it's off the major streets, so a bit hard to find, but well worth it! The food is great, very authentic, delicious and perfectly served. The athmosphere is of a traditional Russian "tea room", with lovely Russian (rather than Soviet) music. The hosts/owners are very sweet. The service is prompt and the food is... More
