“A bit touristy but reasonable food and good customer service”
Reviewed May 21, 2012

The restaurant is situated just off Red Square. Its a themed Russian tourist restaurant complete with Russian singers. We hired two of the rooms for 71 people and had a set meal on our first night. The food was okay, certainly large portions. Little did we realise it would be the best meal of our two day stay. Good service, even on an occasion with a smile which is extremely rare in Moscow.

“Too high for the food you get”
Reviewed January 9, 2012

I should start with the positives... service was good and that is about it. Food was disappointing, everything we ordered was just okay. Bottom line, prices are too high for the quality of food they serve. The only highlight from everything that we ordered was beef stroganoff. Their entertainment program is not that great too. Russian folk group sang 3 Russian songs and disappeared. Needless to say, next time i am in Moscow i won't be visiting them again.

“Complete rip-off”
Reviewed November 28, 2011

An absolute rip-off: 11.000 roubles for 5 without dessert and a "folkloric show" that lasted roughly 10 minutes. The place per se is interesting because it is historical, but that's about it - food is mediocre at best (even My My, for those who know it, is better). Better avoid this place, it is nothing other than a tourist's trap.

“very expensive even for Moscow”
Reviewed November 4, 2011

We dined here as it was close to our hotel and advertised traditional Russian food.
I don't like to give negative reviews but unfortunately, we did not have a good experience here: the service was good but the food was disappointing and extremely expensive. You can do much better elsewhere in Moscow.
