The meals pretend to be cooked in Russian way but they are not. Severe local dishes influence is dominated in every food we tasted. What was really good - smetana (they called it yogurt despite big difference). The facility is run by the family, free...More

Apart from good tasty Russian food, they also have bits from several areas of the former Soviet Union, like Azeri sashliks, Georgian water, Moldavian wine. Prices are reasonable to cheap, although service can be a bit abrupt.

A friend recommended this Russian-Pontian restaurant. All I can say is wow. This really is delicious comfort food. The borscht soup was warm and perfectly seasoned. The salads were fresh. The cabbage rolls were stuffed with minced meat and cooked in a fresh tomato sauce....More
