If you are looking for typical Russian dishes in a traditional setting then this is the place. The Borsch was excellent as were the selection of pickled fish. Highly recommend tasting as many vodkas as possible and having a designated driver!

Our group really enjoyed the experience. All food was prepared perfectly and served timely. Especially enjoyed the selections and options on the menu. At times some of the entertainment was a little loud , that help lighten the mood and works for them .

Service was good, food was dry and expensive. All the 6 meat dishes we ordered had overcooked meat and the sides were bland. Would not recommend.More
