This was my first time at Rus Uz, but not my first foray into the cuisine. The Borsch was some of the best I have ever had, with large chunks of meat and potatoes mixed in. The Samsa were also very good - the lamb,...More

New restaurant with Russia and Uzbek cuisine. Great food as well - I had the Caviar Tart, Borsch, and the Plov. My wife had the Chicken Kiev. Atmosphere and service was great. Very bright inside. Plus there was many, many, many types of Vodka. Cheers

Excellent choice for authentic Russian and Uzbekistan food. We had borscht, pliny (meat filling), dolmas, and pelmeni...all perfectly prepared. Portions were big, prices decent. Good wine and beer choices too! Highly recommended!

My last experience with Russian food was bland and un-exciting. This time around very different. Flavorful and plenty. My wife tried some exotic drink that she especially enjoyed (not Vodka) and I had a traditional bourbon - jazzed up with some special flavors. The Borsch...More

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.
