    Pilaw

    The restaurant Shurpa (Ginza Project Group) on Wednesdays at 20:00 suggests a master-class of Uzbek dishes. One can get a free portion. Book seats in advance by phone.
    We were there again on Wednesday 01/08/2012 and they prepared "pilaw". It's tasty too! The free portion is not very big but enough for an evening meal.
    Their usual portions are very big. On Sundays they prepare a lamb on a spit. Book this dish in advance.

    The best sushi I've had ever, I had it in several japanese restaurants in St Petersburg. There's loads of them, as its cuisine is in fashion, and none of them disappointed me.

    Favorite Dish: Sushi because of the wide range
    Sashimi because of the quality of the prime material

    Triton: Great Seafood

    The aquarium under the foyer
    4 more images

    As one enters the foyer of the restaurant, one has to walk over a glass floor which reveals an aquarium beneath the feet. There is a column in the restaurant that has water cascading from ceiling to bottom. The windows are actually aquariums; even the toilet tank in the ladies room is an aquarium! The goldfish in it doesn't seem to be bothered when the water is flushed.

    Be prepared to pay top dollars for the luxurious seafood experience. Reservation is highly recommended although when we were there (4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.), my friend and I were the only patrons. A group of four came an hour later. We could have easily lingered longer if we didn't have to rush to Mariinsky Theater for a ballet performance.

    Mr. Yamogucci Cafe: Sushi

    Very good selection of sushi to chose from and very frech with a nice atmosphere and good staff. Lagre selection of drinks from the bar to chose from and with seating for 50 this is a good city centre location if you are fed up of Russian food during your stay in the city. Menu in English also.

    Favorite Dish: Sushi roll.

  • Kashmir: Kashmir dominates

    by maxwell1 Written Sep 22, 2005

    This is one of the few vegitarian restaurants in SP and, in my opinion, by far the best. The spices used are great and unlike most Indian restaurants in the western world. I went with several meat-eating friends and they did not feel unsatisfied with the broad selection. The price is very reasonable as well. The service is friendly but, like almost all restaurants in russia, slow and eratic.

    Favorite Dish: Any of the soups are great. The peacock soy is amazing.

    Lapsha: Asian cuisine in Russia? Yes!

    by Gwynethart Written Mar 26, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Do you like Asian food? What a general term! This restaurant has Burmese, Cambodian, Vietnamese, and Thai food. The presentation is beautiful, and the setting of the restaurant is modern. Like many places in Russia these days, the music played is mellow House music. There is an extensive tea menu, too.

    Favorite Dish: I had a seafood salad, which was incredible, and also some chicken with ginger...I have provided a website, but unless you speak Russian - good luck! :-)) Honestly, I recommend this place, but the menu is only in Russian, so either ask for help or go with a Russian speaker if you are lucky enough, as I was.

    "Yakitoria": Sushi Bar

    by sophiebeans Updated Feb 11, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Sushi

    This was a great little restaurant that had sushi and other Japanese dishes. It was called "Yakitoria, " and it was near the Alexsandrisky Theater. The food was good and presented in a very decorative manner. I got a real kick out the whole experience because I'd never had sushi before in the US - and here I was in St. Petersburg, Russia, eating Japanese cuisine, listening to Spanish music in the background, while speaking English to my friend...... You can't get more multi-cultural than that!

    Favorite Dish: So many choices, all of them good!

    Several: Shawarmas

    by RB_Oakes Written Aug 5, 2004

    They're ubiquitous, pretty good and cost less than self-catering. They're not twenty rubles anymore, but they're still good value. The Russian put weird things on them like spreading mayo on the pita first, and they love cucumber, too. But that's not a problem because unlike the Poles they've grasped that it's tahini that goes on shawarmas, not tzatziki. So I eat a lot of shawarmas in Russia.

    Asian Cuisine: "Chopsticks"

    by eVg Written Nov 12, 2003

    For those who crave some "asian cuisine", this place has an enchanting oriental decor with authentic Cantonese and "Szechwan" specialties. Another benefit is that it is located in the Hotel "Europe", which is one of the best in the city.
    The restaurant closes at 11pm.

    Asian Cuisine: Indian Food In Peter at Tandor

    by MrRandMcnally Updated Sep 2, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Tandoor is right around the corner

    It may seem odd to eat Indian in Russia but Tandor, Near St. Isaaks church is excellent. The staff speaks english. Meals abou $15 about person.

    Favorite Dish: Everything I've had there is good. The Spicy curry is a nice break from the satisfying but fairly bland Russian food.

    Shwarma Cafe

    We had shwarma and fries at this little cafe, located around the corner from our apartment. The food is cheap, incredibly tasty and filling as well.

    The cafe staff are very helpful. . .the cook is Egyptian and jumped right in ~ with perfect English ~ to help me when I tried out my Russian ordering skills.

    Apart from the usual fast food joints on or off Nevski Prospekt, some restaurants are worth trying, like the Uzbeki restaurant on Ulitsa Millyonara (right off the Hermitage and the Palace Square).
    It's not extremely posh, neither is the atmosphere brilliant, but their live performances are good fun.

    Favorite Dish: Virtually every dish contains grilled meat. Yummmm!!!

    The Seven Sky Bar is not only a bar, but also a real good restaurant with excellent menu. I had some Thai food here and it was delicious.
