Not much has been changed since this restaurant opened. It is however not part of a restaurantchain, and they have a wide variety to choose from in the menu. I had "the gentlemans selection" for starters, which is heering with boiled potatoes and onions, a typical Russian dish. The starter and the main course was excellent. Atmoshpere is very nice with intimate conversations among the tables. Not a place with loud conversations and music. When I asked if they have wifi, the waitress just replied that they prefer "real conversations" in this establishment - which was just excellent :-). Price was also very reasonable.

Ms Oxana the owner and staff have a cozy place with 70s relaxed tunes and classic russian movies. The menu features many comfort foods including Pot Pie, Grilled Cod, Fish Soup, Roast Duck, Indian and many more......... Very recommended - we go to all the MMK restaurants, Mama is the best

Excellent restaurant located just east of the main street, Ulitsa Lenina. Despite its Italian name, there is a wide variety of Russian dishes on the menu, as well as the expected pizza and pasta. I enjoyed my first Russian meal there so much that I went back again the next day. As mentioned in previous reviews, there is indeed reindeer pizza on the menu, although I opted for something more authentically Russian on my visits. The service is good and the atmosphere is tranquil, with soft music playing in the background. The lighting is subdued, and the décor is pleasantly old-fashioned and low key. The soups in particular are delicious, and for £10 a bottle there is Russian champagne available (July 2016 price), as well as a wide variety of other drinks. Popular with locals and tourists alike.

Mama Mia has a cozy atmosphere, plays peaceful tunes of favorite songs from 60s to 70s and very good western and russian food. Hidden inside and old office building - but well worth taking the risk to enter! Try the fish soup

I had dinner here with my colleagues and we all were satisfied with service and food. Undoubtedly, the atmosphere of this place is remarkable, and I adore its decor and soft music. I will come back here and recommend it to everyone.
