“Some language difficulties but pretty good!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2014

My family and I decided to try this place out. It was a bit empty and we were the only ones, however we were pleasantly surprised by how good the food was as well as the service! Everything we ordered was yummy and decent portions.

Price was also very fair AND we didn't get charged a 10% service fee (the ONLY place in Malaysia that didn't charge us). We actually really enjoyed ourselves to the point that we considered going back the next night (although we didn't purely just to try some place different while staying in Langkawi, but had we stayed more than 5 nights, we would have returned for certain).

The only comment was that the young gentleman who was serving us (who was very polite and VERY helpful) had some language barrier issues, which made ordering one of the dishes a little difficult (in the end we got what we wanted, although the portion was twice as much as what we wanted - but we ate it and paid for it anyway as it was simply great!).

Would try out for sure.

“Tasty Russian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

We've eaten here each time we go to Langkawi. It's near where we stay when we're there, but quite far from Kuah town and Pantai Cenang where most of the hotels are. The food is quite rich and filling but the prices are reasonable although they don't take credit cards, so have cash ready.

“Good service and value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

Dined in with the wife for dinner in late Nov 2013. Very happy with the service and reasonable prices. Quality of food was high. This restaurant would have got 5 stars from me had they had everything listed on the menu available. I frustrates me being told an item on the menu that catches my attention is not available,

“Worst dining experience of my life”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

Please do not waste any oxygen by considering eating here , I visited on a Sunday evening and we were the only group in the place so being short staffed is no excuse.

After 1 hour of waiting from placing the order with the waitress who had no idea what was on the menu we received the following delites,

Garlic bread as far as I'm aware has never been very cheap white square loaf thinly sliced toasted to one side and smeared with margarine containing garlic

Chicken Kiev was inedible ,dry and fried within 2 minutes of being suitable for carbon dating ,garlic butter filling non existant

We ordered chicken wings for the table of 10 they sent out 4 chicken wings ?? Do the maths

Russian salmon is actually a white fish smeared in mozzarella and potato sauce apparently

We left our friends eating much of the same and went for a takeaway pizza ,when the group tried to negotiate the bill based on the food being completely rubbish the restaurants attempt at customer service was to threaten to call the police if they didn't pay in full.

There is a beautiful Italian place 30 meters away we,ve been there twice, full marks for the Italians
