Fodor's Review

All of London's Russian molls, dolls, and porcelain-skinned babushkas squeeze into this White Russian fantasy dining salon in Knightsbridge, which overflows with a maximalist decor of vintage chandeliers, Tiffany lamps, tchotchkes, cheburashkas, and a Russian pechka stove. Snap into character with a horseradish vodka shot, then carb-up on pierogi sea bass savories, Siberian pelmeni (dumpling) soup, or smoked salmon blini. There's also tip-top borscht and creamy beef Stroganoff with wild mushrooms, and let's not forget the sweet crêpes with condensed milk. But it's the nostalgic dacha-like antebellum setting that makes you feel like you're participating in some kind of Anna Karenina–esque historical reenactment.
