“Very good, but...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

During our dinner, we were forced to wait (without food) while electricity will be back to wires :-(
But everything (food, compliment) was excellent!

“Really a trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Good Russian country fare. It has an intersing environment like a country (peasant) house, complete with farmyard sounds as you enter. Nice staff, who speak food English. Very reasonably priced.

“A good find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

Wonderful little place, good authentic food, reasonable drinks prices, some english spoken, small non smoking area and a happy atmosphere.

Best of all, just a few minutes walk from both our hotel and the Moscow station.

“Nice Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

Food was quite good, not mind blowing, but not awful. I had chicken kiev, which didn't taste very much of garlic, but that suited me!
The atmosphere was really nice and the service was efficient.
Worth a look for sure.

“Great fun and an authentic Russian experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

After a hard days tourism we were looking forward to trying authentic Russian food and local beer and perhaps a vodka. We were made very welcome in this restaurant with its comfortable old style ambience - gingham table clothes and an old B&W TV, and board games. Lot of locals having fun which is good sign. We had the Borscht, dumplings, a meat pot and shot vodka between courses. The waitress helped us choose and thought our attempt at speaking Russain was worth a free vodka.
