Want to start with fantastic service by Anastazia. She was not only smiling and ready for our requests every time we needed but she almost insisted for us to order the fish appetizer they prepared on the premises and it was fantastic!
Overall food was very tasty and mostly recommended by Anastazia. For those who will order alcoholic want to recommend restaurant’s homemade drink which is made of кедровые орешки. Definitely recommend to visit!!!

We decided to end our organised tour with an independent meal out, and to treat our tour guide to his meal.
The menu was very interesting, and the food to a very high standard. The service was also excellent.
Menus are provided with an English translation.
Recommended.

Banshiki is a stylish modern restaurant on a back street close to Moskovsky station. The menu is mainly based on Russian dishes but the chef has given them an interesting modern interpretation.

The restaurant is stylishly decorated and the service was attentive without being intrusive. There is a menu in English and the waiter also spoke perfect English. I chose the duck brisket with elderberry sauce with a side dish of young potatoes with sour cream and greens. The duck was tender, succulent and perfectly cooked. There were five in our group and we all thoroughly enjoyed our meals.

We each had two courses from the menu plus two bottles of red wine and three bottles of water and the bill came to about £31 ($38 US) per head, which represented excellent value for money in my opinion, considering the quality of the meal.

Definitely worth investigating if you’re staying in the area.

We flashed for this restaurant that was recommended by the concierge at our hotel. Great way to discover great russian food that tastes delicious and excellent russian wines too. I had a seasonal chanterelle and crab soup that was amazing. My husband tried the borscht with home made horseradish liquor and it was a winner too. Main dish (fish and duck) were very good as well, and our waiter Ilya (he was the nicest!) brought us extra tasting of local sorbets. I totally loved the spruce and lemon sorbet and Ilya gave us detailed explanation of how this and the other dishes were prepared. IAlthough we went there as a couple, I noted it would be great for a family as there was a play room for the kids!. t was a total win!
