As a foreigner, I was treated very kindly by the staff, especially Elena, who offered me recommendations which were very delicious. Their dumplings are the best I’ve had in Moscow.

Quite simple and not tasty... Very expensive for the food. The waiters were slow and uninformed, cuisine is very simple.

"Shinok" is by far the most authentic Ukranian cuisine restaurant in Moscow. The restaurant was opened in 1997 by Alexander Dellos and remains one of the best fine dining places in the capital of Russia. Shinok is the only restaurant with a real wildlife atrium with peacocks, a cow, rabbits, a goat and other animals. Our guests may taste the highlights of Ukranian and Russian cuisine: borscht, Russian salad, blinis, pickings, a huge variety of lard.
