Great food, great vibe, super friendly owner. So nice to go back to have some Russian food in a vegan variation. The borscht is absolutely delectable and they make their own kvass!

I like the "Serious Kuma" plush toy doll flipping the bird at you. Only can be purchased at the Bloody Bunny store in Central World. My soul is a dark, empty place. Yeah!

We had «kotlety » with mashed potatoes, pelmeni, and medovik cake. Everything was fantastic and delicious. I don’t write much reviews on holidays but this experience left me no choice. Highly recommend to everyone.

If you like foreign food, why not try Russian cuisine in Thailand? The friends cafe has a comfortable quiet atmosphere despite being located at the main road in Ban Khai between Thong Sala and Hat Rin. I had the most delicious small cheese cakes (сырники)...More
