Yes, you got it right, russian food. As a native russian, I never even realized how much do I love our cuisine, until I spent more than half of year studying in UK. So, using the occasion of a concert of a favourite band as an excuse, me and my friends decided to find a restaurant with russian food.
My friend found Erebuni online while reading some reviews; location was convenient enough and we were planning to fill in 2 hours gap between arrival in London and the concert by having a good meal.
We booked a table and left a warning message that we might be 15 mins late so we asked to keep it for us a bit longer. Although we arrived on time and there was plenty of free tables, waiter ensured us that they'd keep it. Good.
Food was simply delicious and it certainly is whatever you can get back in Mother Russia. Two things I wasn't in particular fond of - meat took about 50 mins to be prepared (however we trust such a long time of cooking to be a sign of a well prepared meat, not some instant/quick de-frozen perps), and when I asked for water, they brought a bottle of artisan water, which cost quite a bit... However, the atmosphere was exceptional, and as an apology for delayed meals we were offered some vodka, on house! The owner was an awesomely welcoming person who told us to come back after concert if we had time, reminded of closing hours and also mentioned that they have a typical karaoke club downstairs!
Everyone was left pleased; we spent approximately 25 pounds each on orders (drink + main dish + dessert + some takeaway pirogi). Barbican station is also nearby, which helps a lot.
