“Authentic and delicious”
Reviewed December 24, 2013

We loved our lunch at this authentic Russian diner at Brighton Beach. There is no ocean view, and the name suggests something other than the genuine Russian experience you will get here, but don't let this put you off. We would definitely return. I had the cabbage rolls - the most delicious I have ever tried. The others had things like mushroom soup and stroganoff and were equally happy. There were different drinks to try too - a tarragon lemonade and a pear lemonade, both great value so we were surprised when they came in lovely large bottles, all the way from Georgia, Russia. Little touches like a wine glass to drink our "lemonades" in, along with efficient service, clean restrooms and lots of locals - what more could we ask for?
