The food is excellent, even though we ate way too much. The waitress guided us to take 4 small dishes per person, but I would say 2 would be more realistic. The pelmens, khinkalis, varenikis and so on are excellent, but service here is really...More

If you like Russian food, this place deserves a stop. We tried pelmeni, kinkhali, vareniki, salads with cabbage,.. and their fresh juices: everything was delicious! Prices are affordable.
