“Far short of expectations!”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

A group of us went to Matrioshka after being told how good it was. The food wasn't all that great at all and there wasn't enough going around on the "banquet" we ordered. The entertainment (band which consisted of one man in his late 50's on keyboard and a woman who was miming some of the songs) was disappointing too. Unfortunately we (as a group) were not impressed and none of us would ever go back to this restaurant in a hurry.... that's for sure. It's a shame. Melbourne offers so many great restaurant experiences, but this one was a complete let down. :(
