On classy Beauchamp Place, restaurant offers authentic Russian cuisine in an unobtrusive space. Not open Monday or Tuesday. Opening seems to be sixish. Food is outstanding, fresh high quality ingredients. Opens quietly, but starts rolling with Russian clientele after 8pm.

I first visited this restaurant in 1975 and have returned regularly throughout the years. I was last here five or six years ago, and the meal was average; but I returned recently out of loyalty, hoping that I had hit an "off night" back then. Unfortunately, after dining here last week, I think I have made my last visit. The... More

We were looking for an authentic russian restaurant in London and this is it! Reasonably priced although not inexpensive and fairly varied menu with all the typical appetizers, soups (borsch of course), russian salads (herring under fur coat), bliny, and mains (golubtsy). We will go back again. Portions are generous, at least for London. Reminded us of Uncle Vanya restaurant... More

I visited this restaurant with several friends to introduce them to Russian food (being a Russian myself) which unfortunately instead turned out to be an introduction to a new level of disappointment. First of all, the food portions were very small. The main meals can be compared to the size of an entree at any other restaurant. As an example... More

Went there on Wednesday and Friday night. My wife is Polish so she is well aware of Slavic culture. I am surprised by what people are complaining about. I must say, the service was exceptionally well. Olga and Bogdan treated us very well. 1. Drinks. Overpriced wine? I wonder why would you order wine in a Russian restaurant. Try ordering... More

Brilliant restaurant, great fun and delicious Russian food. Prices ok for Central London and portions are HUGE! I have no idea why some reviews said it was small because when the starters came they were like main courses. I lived in Russia for 5 years and this is totally authentic high quality Russian food. Really friendly staff and great atmosphere.... More

Went to this restaurant with my family for a dinner, nice atmosphere but the menu was not that great and sooo overpriced! I know its in London, but come on!! The bill includes 10% staff gratitude but the service was not worth that much of money. Food was ok although portions could be bigger for the price stated. Would not... More

I went out with four of my friends - four Russians and one Polish. All started with a really small table for five people to sit. The menu did not have a big choice of dishes and same was for alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, which was a disappointment. Nonetheless, I ordered Solyanka (GDP 10.95). The portion which was brought to... More

Staying in Knightsbridge

Neighbourhood Profile
When millions of tourists want to shop 'til they drop, they do it along Brompton Road and its boutique-lined tributaries, including the world-renowned Harrods. And when millionaires want to flaunt what they've already got, many of them find Knightsbridge and Belgravia the perfect place to do so, often behind stately mansion walls or down quiet private mews. Delve beyond the ultra-luxe exterior and you'll find some of this city's cosiest pubs, quiet gardens, and all sorts of indie retailers and enterprises worth a short exercise in spontaneous window shopping. For those looking to take a break from shopping, Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, and some of the city's most popular museums are nearby.
