“Russian restaurant”
Reviewed May 23, 2012

Large Russian cuisine menu, and even one in English. Funny thing though is that it doesn't relate directly to the Russian menu so you still struggle to get your selections across to the staff.
Otherwise, nice atmosphere and good food. Very reasonable prices by Western standards.($100 for 5 people: 2 1/2 courses)

“One of the first restaurants in Astana with nice Russian food and convenient location”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

living in Astana, I've been to this restaurant several times. I like this restaurant for classic Russian food, reasonable prices and nice services. Conveniently located in the Old Town, so you can combine eating at this restaurant with visiting some old places nearby (like Russian Theatre named after D.Gorkyi or the old square).

“not bad, but too expensive”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

Nice menu, good service. But very expensive. Be ready to pay about 200-250 USD to take a dinner.
