Very nice place with a moderately priced menu. The food was good and typically Russian. But the waitress was just unfriendly. When we have been there, the place was empty (early dinner) but we got the feeling that we are not welcome.

After you order you have to remind several times& be prepared to be ignored. I guess its Russian way!

Well decorated restaurant, good service and a Russian menu. It is a good place to have a pork dish in Istanbul. Try the aubergine roll and pork medallion. You will not regret.

Great place to eat non-turkish next to Taksim. They serve large number of Russian specialities and if you order it in advance, you can have even very rare pork meat! Service is fast, smiling and you can practice your Russian!

Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal
Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night
and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights,
shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of
people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive
Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of
the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned
restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening
