The milkshakes we had were absolutely great. De interior is nicely true American. We went back the next day for lunch and had the quesadilla’s, also very nice. Atmosphere is totally relaxed.

Place is getting worse each year. Food expensive and isn't tasty. You can find much better and cheaper places around. Place just uses name, location and focused on tourists positioning itself like first American diner since 1995 but gives nothing to their customers.

The portion sizes are good, the prices are average. The food is by no means bad but there are much better options if you're looking for a burger. The milkshakes are great though!

I was twice in the place. It is in the very center of the city and on the super interesting place which is quiet, next to a theater and the Chaikovsky music hall, which is a great benefit. But I would say these are only...More

I've been coming to the Starlite Diner since the very first one was opened in the 1990's. I haven't been to it for awhile but I went to the one on Prospect Vernadskogo recently with my 15 year old son. Let's just say you should...More

This place is extremely expensive and the food is not much better than anything you could make at home. The food is ok, but the prices are high and the service is slow. The main problem is the high prices.

This was our first visit to the Starlight Diner and we were impressed with the service and the food. We were celebrating my husband's birthday and he selected the meatloaf, classic American comfort food, which came with mashed potatoes and fresh vegetables. The draft beer...More

Patriarch Ponds
When you need to hide from the city’s noise and
traffic but don’t want to stroll too far, Patriarch
Ponds is the place to be. Calm water, friendly swans
and ducks with beautiful early 20th century
architecture in the background make this neighborhood
a place you’ll never want to leave. Besides stylish
bars and restaurants scattered in the streets around
the pond, you’ll be able to enjoy museum life from

It's most certainly American and those red booths are the real thing - the only Russian elements here are the electric sockets. You'll hear more English spoken in this diner than anywhere else in Moscow, which adds to the otherworldly home-away-from-home experience. The menu spins out all the classics in authentic style, including huge waffles, burgers and giant milkshakes made with Oreo cookies, massive breakfast and huge filter coffees from the pot. American diners are now de rigeur in Moscow but Starlites are still the original and best. They now have four 24 hour venues with the original being the giant silver truck in a leafy garden near Mayakovskaya metro (Bol. Sadovaya 16), Oktyabrskaya metro (Korovy Val, 9a), metro Universitet (Vernadskogo Ave., 6) although our favourite is the latest spacious venue on Stastnoy bulvar - metro Pushkinskaya.
