Superb food, value for price really good, first ever Russian restaurant with real Russian food. Staff was great and as they are from Russia or former Soviet Union you've the feel in the right price.

I have hosted my birthday here, and also came back for casual dinings. Mari Vanna never disappoints. Both the upstairs and downstairs space are nicely decorated. The appetizers are all amazing, I get so full off of them that I can barely order main. The desserts are also delightful. The honey cake is a must. You can't go wrong with... More

This restaurant proved to be a highlight of our trip to London. The food and atmosphere are excellent. The flavored vodka is also great. I had the cherry vodka on the recommendation of the waiter and loved it. (A bit too much, perhaps!)

First of all, the decor in this place is amazing! It really sets the theme of the restaurant and adds to it's authentic nature. The staff are also very welcoming and helpful with the menu for non-Russians! The food is very tasty, not sure what the traditional items were supposed to be but it was delicious!

Love the entrance to this place. Very interesting, beautiful surroundings like being in grand dining room relaxing and made to feel at home. Great choice of homemade Russian cuisine (not that I understood the menu that well) with good ingredients. Really good cocktails and the food was well presented and tasty.

A restaurant with good Russian food and atmosphere (a bit too much of the Soviet period of Russian history though).

I visited this restaurant in Nov 2015 for multiple birthday celebrations with my family. Food was superb, staff was fantastic & interior was great, it seemed we were in Russia. We received a couple of shots on the house when the staff found out that it was my sister's birthday the next day. Will visit this restaurant again.

Staying in Knightsbridge

Neighborhood Profile
When millions of tourists want to shop 'til they drop, they do it along Brompton Road and its boutique-lined tributaries, including the world-renowned Harrods. And when millionaires want to flaunt what they've already got, many of them find Knightsbridge and Belgravia the perfect place to do so, often behind stately mansion walls or down quiet private mews. Delve beyond the ultra-luxe exterior and you'll find some of this city's cosiest pubs, quiet gardens, and all sorts of indie retailers and enterprises worth a short exercise in spontaneous window shopping. For those looking to take a break from shopping, Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, and some of the city's most popular museums are nearby.
