Love this place! I am eastern european so this place did not fail to deliver good russian/ukrainian dishes. Ample space, good service. You can also try some Uzbek and selective Turkish dishes. The wait was appropriate.

The name of this restaurant is now "Golden Samover" and it is located right in the center of what's called the "Rockville Town Center" with the restaurant entrance on the street. You'll probably come to this restaurant looking for Russian food, which is very good...More
