Moscow is a multinational city, and you will find not only Russian cuisine here, but many others, including those of the countries and regions aroung Russia.
It will not strike you as a fancy place, but it is comparatively cheap (dinner for 2 with red wine was USD22) and just nice.
Favorite Dish: It is a kind of Uzbek place (I am not an expert, I call this kind of food 'eastern'). They have excellent collection of Georgian wines, and cook typical (to me, again) Caucauses and Uzbek food like 'plov', 'pelmeni', 'manty', some vegeteble dishes, rice, pastry with cheese and greens.
IOLKI-PALKI restaurant, it belongs to a chain with many spots in Moscow.
interesting buffet, you fill up your cup (195 rubles all-you-can-eat) with raw meat, raw fish and vegs, then handle it to the cookers that cooks your food in front of you!
Just opened a month ago, opened 24 hrs. features a 24-hour breakfast specials from $5 to $9, free-refill on coffee till noon. Business Lunch of $9 or Roubles 250-, with choices of Chinese, Filipino, Thai and European. pretty good cause all business lunches include, soup, salad, main dish and tea. Cuisine is combination from China, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand and had burgers and steaks too... Don't Forget there is Happy Hour Specials, Buy 1 take 1 on Beer, Whisky & Vodka from 16.00 to 20.00 hrs daily.
Suggestion, Business lunch I liked the Thai. and they do have some good spring rolls and fresh egg rolls, must try.. Unfortunately, was dissappointed since they toned down the chillis on the asian menu catering to Russian palettes.. Not to worry, you can always ask the waitress for some fresh chopped chillis to add if you do like it spicy...
Basically good value for money...
Favorite Dish: Spring Rolls and the Malay Curry, should try also the noodles, pretty good for moscow standards compared to other asian restaurants. I guess an added plus is the Chef is from Asia.
Near B2 and Starlight Diner there is an Indian resteraunt under a theatre. This resteraunt is one of thefew places in Moscow where you can roll up with up to 15 people , get a table and all your food will arriveat the same time. Which is a good thing and makes up for the fact that it is slightly expensive.
Favorite Dish: Curry any curry
It's a very popular restaurant in Moscow.Sometimes there is a line at the front door and people are given numbers and called in.Sure enough the waitresses are busy and you wait for a food quite long.The atmosphere is very nice and asian inside. Rolls are very small comparatively to american ones,but cheaper,so you can order more.They have a large assortment of dishes on the menu. It's a chain ,I was told the location we dined in is the best
Sushi appeared to be a novelty in Moscow when I visited and the price reflected that. When in Russia...may as well eat Russian food. I emptied out my wallet on a couple of California Rolls one night and I would have gotten better Sushi in L.A. for a fifth of the price. (Ok, I will probably get slammed for this, but it is true!)
This sushi restaurant is fairly close to my girlfriends apartment so we go here quite often. The food is good and the menu is in English and Russian.
It does seem to get busy here so if you can book, it's not a bad idea. Apparently, it does take some credit cards but I've never tried and always paid in cash.
I'll also try to get a picture next time I'm passing during the daytime and add it to this tip.
Favorite Dish: I'm not a big fan of sushi but there are plenty of chicken, pork and beef alternatives available.
However, the best thing is one of their desserts. It's a half pineapple, scooped out and filled with fruit (including kiwi and strawberry) and ice cream.
I liked this restaurant. But I didn't saw much differences between this restaurant and other Japanese restaurant.
Favorite Dish: I ate Philadelphia rolls (250 RUB) and drank orange fresh. I liked it.
Belongs to the same owners as Vesna and Sirena. Upscale dining for businessmen and wealthier Russians. Good food, pleasant atmosphere.
why not trying restaurant:"uzbekistan";it is an uzbek restaurant;we understood nothing from the menu,but we succeeded to have a very good meal
This is really great restaurant. There is not only uzbekistan food, but all place and people are different. Woman are wearing their national clothes, and place look really amazing.
