The white beet borscht and herring salad were palatable appetizers. The stewed pork with buckwheat, a main dish, is a typical "soldier's meal" - filling and very bland. In fact, the meal was neither better nor worse than a similar meal I had recently in Stalingrad, another non-culinary capital. If you want a break from Chinese food in a city... More

Katusha is well known and not too expensive, but my experience of the baked salmon, alas, was not as wonderful as I was expecting, although the borscht was very nice. Still, the restaurant, right opposite Stalin Park, is worth it for the Russian atmosphere.

Many mainland Chinese patronize it, saw a table of English as we were leaving. The receptionist was sour face and I didn't see her smile at all during the 2 days I was there. On the first day it was full and we reserved a table for the next day and she wanted RMB200 deposit which we gave. Food was... More

What a delight to get some comfort food in friendly surroundings. Though this is definitely not a 5 star restaurant, the experience definitely is. Where else does the waitress ask you if you want vodka by the shot or bottle? Katusha is just across the road from the main waterside area of Stalin park and definitely the place to go... More

This is by far the best western restaurant in town. It is Russian food. I went here probably for every meal during my 3 deals. Food is good price, and the food is amazing, very traditional Russian food, which was great after eating only noodles for 30 days before. THe menu is large, lots to choose from. I was greated...

After being greeted by stone-faced hosts I walked into what felt like someone's living room, including the awkward feeling of unwanted intrusion. The food was mediocre at best, I ordered some kind of fried fish which ended up being all I was served with some cabbage shards. My friend ordered the beef stroganoff and what she received was anything but.... More

I read about Katusha on the Harbin wikitravel page and decided to give it a try. The restaurant had a very drab, uninviting exterior when we approached it. After a long trek up Zhongyang Dajie,, my heart sank when I saw that the Katusha sign was unlit and the restaurant appeared closed. Thankfully, my friend stepped forward and found that... More

Other reviewers have complained about the service at Katusha but we ran into the owner who was really nice and took the time to explain to us the various dishes on the menu. I have to go as far as to say that the service we received here was better than most of the restaurants we've been to in China.... More

Me and my friends were there many times. Every time the service was done by the owner (and her family), no problem at all. However, the latest times we were there, the service has been done by the waiters and, sorry, that was terrible! They are really impolite! The last time we were there (over a year as we decided...
