I dined here today (4th November) at about 5.30pm with my grandma. She picked it because she has been to Russia and hasn't eaten the cuisine in a while, plus we had just been to the Ballets Russe exhibit at the V&A so it seemed appropriate.
The atmosphere is welcoming, as the decor is all red with only a navy blue ceiling for relief. The effect is very cosy and befitting of...more
This is definitely an experience, no question. There's a great selection of vodkas, and the sweet Russian champagne (£40) was delicious.
However, this place is not cheap, and the food took a long time to arrive. For our group of 20, we pre-ordered the day before. In spite of this, it took an hour for our starters to arrive, and another hour after that for our mains. We were starving!
Awesome Russian food; a small, intense restaurant; lots of vodkas to try; and live Russian folk music. It's not all meat and potatoes, either: they have some vegetarian dishes.
Lots of red velvet inside: the decor, like the atmosphere, seems to get more and more manic as the night goes on. Best line of the night I was there: And now, everyone dance on table!more
