I have eaten at Elki Palki several times, the last time today. They offer a reasonably priced buffet of Russian hot and cold food, as well as a menu for individual items, drinks and desserts. Their food has been consistently good, service is generally good...More

Great range of reasonably priced food. Would recommend the potato cakes and the fish stew. It's fast food with a difference - no burgers or stuff like that. Lots of home-style cooking. Worth a visit and good value for money in Moscow.

First time in Moscow and looking for a good, cheap place to eat - we ended up at Elki-Palki and what a treat it was! A table containing a dozen or more bowls filled with various salads provided a delicious opportunity to sample Russian fare....More

Mainstream restaurant chain where a lot of locals go to (they have outlets all over the city). Tourist-friendly still, as the menu features colour pictures and English translations. Food is not exceptional but very decent, cheap and the menu offers a huge variety of classic...More
