Great food in a convenient area of town. Very nice atmosphere with good seating and great service. I recommend the Borscht and a pot of Black Tea. Be sure to check out their market next door too.

Really great food enjoyed by the whole table. I don’t think you can go wrong with any dish. Everything was very flavorful and the house infused vodkas were nice! Great cocktail prices, too!

Our dining experience in Rus-Uz was pretty decent. The restaurant offers authentically Russian and Uzbek cuisine. The beetroot - herring salad traditionally called" Seld' pod shuboi" leaves much to be desired. All the rest we tried was music to taste buds! Staff was attentive and...More

If you want great environment and food try this Arlington Russian restaurant. We loved our lamb, pastry, wine, Russian beer, and fine china. The service is excellent and the venue fun. Don't hesitate to try it!

No dress code that I noted. But it was cool that night and no one was in shorts and flip flops. Best to check directly with the restaurant.
