The restaurant is very beautiful and so detailed. The food is excellent. I had the fried Salman and the aubergine caviar.. so yummy.. The best part of it is the bathroom “ladies” I’m impressed

In Knightsbridge, a fairly unassuming facade hides a wonderful little authentic Russian restaurant. Decor is amazing as the attached photo demonstrates. Friendly obliging staff. If you are unsure what a particular item on the menu is, they will happily explain.

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
