Heard great things about Mari Vanna and the restaurant has a pleasant atmosphere but the variety of food is very poor. I couldn't find a lot of things that were to my taste from the menu, accept the meat pirozhki. It is yummy but the menu its not for me.

I can only say that I will never visit this restaurant again. We really liked the interior but then we felt like we are not welcome. The servise was unpleasant, that we wanted to leave. But we had already ordered the meal. Meal wasn´t so good like we expected - we saw some rewiews here. But we can not agree.... More

I can honestly say, that in my whole life I tried a wide range of restaurants, and from this I have been expecting something more classy. Overpriced, (compare to the food I received) the service was a bit slow, and the waiter had bad english, also couple of problems with the understanding. Neither the taste of the food nor the...

I loved it! Interior is awesome but of course it's not only it. I'm Russian and my grandma was chief cook in soviet restaurant so I know how Russian food should look and taste like. Service was excellent, very attentive waitress. I took borsch, pie with meat, olivie with sausage and beef stroganoff with mashed potato. All tasted good! Borsch... More

Amazing Ukrainian/ Russia evening - forget to take photos of the 3 round voka shots - it was very good - peeper and horseradish flavoured! Also missed the photos of the delicious chicken as it was snapped by my friends already! Definitely worth checking it out if you are near Knightsbridge! 🤗👍😘

A lovely restaurant with good food and efficient service. Decor was great. Food was delicious, would visit again. A bit pricey but it is Knightsbridge.

I really like a russian food. I visited many times Russia, that's why I choose this "restaurant". But this place was awful. The waitress was so lazy and unfriendly. She didn't speak English, it was an activity what I want to eat. Finally when I got a food (long time) I got a second shock. It was only one good... More

Visited this restaurant several times and I must tell it is becoming worse and worse with every single time. First time I visited this restaurant in 2014 and I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised. This restaurant became something special for me and my family as it provides a genuine Russian atmosphere and I bet designers worked hard... More

We stumbled upon this lovely Russian restaurant quite accidentally when looking for a place to have lunch near Knightsbridge. The interior design is warm and welcoming, the place is literally spilling over with knick-knacks but in the most charming way. The service was friendly and it seems that all staff speak fluent Russian and English. Also the food was good... More

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.
