Very tasty! Authentic quisine and interesting cocktails! I recommend to try nastoyka!
I think it’s very disappointing that staff does not wear masks in Covid times!
The food was delicious, the only complaint is that it felt like Covid guidelines were not really strictly implemented
Well, I don’t want to say it was bad, but it wasn’t good.... it wasn’t like I expected! I am sorry I did not like starters... pelmeni was ok, but the dough was too dry... I liked vareniki with cherry! Kackes are not the best
Nice place,tasty food. For those who loves Russian cuisine.
Very nice food and representation. Friendly and helpful staff. Would definitely come again!
Luscious, scrumptious, delicious, superb... Any nice adjective falls short.
Never had tried sturgeon before. It was amazing. Like everything else.
Perfect Russian cuisine

Lovely food, in a great atmosphere with top quality service.
Wonderful, inspiring menu to choose from and absolutely delicious food and drink. Our favourite from now on.
An authentic Russian restaurant in the heart of London. Delicious and really taste like being in Russia ..
The food was delicious and service very attentive. Definitely will go back to try more things on the menu. Had a very pleasant experience, I can only recommend. Try the mixed pickles and the stuffed blinis and of course Nastoyka- vodka infusions. The layered honey cake is out of this world.
The food is really delicious,if you are looking for the taste of home.A little overpriced for the simple and cheap products.
It was absolutely amazing evening in ZIMA. Thank you so much!
Very nice place. Quite expensive though. Thank you
As always excellent food, excellent service and great atmosphere. Thank you
Wonderful dinner. We'll be back.
Nice atmosphere, friendly and attentive staff. Food not only looks good but also tastes good.
Nothing special....Just one waiter not enough for this service was not the best for what i paid...12.5%....
Awesome food, nice staff, lovely waitress good price.
Lovely meal outside, particularly recommended are the meat pelmeni, beef medallion, stuffed cabbage, and honey cake. Friendly staff.
The beef medallion was pretty good, and the homemade kvas is recommended. Tasty Russian food without paying like an oligarch
Friendly and helpful staff! Delicious food (borsh is highly recommended)
I think it’s because I’m in love with Russian, Eastern European cuisine and culture but guys it was amazing. I’ve been twice during one week. See you soon.
Food was excellent. The борщ was very good. Service was good. Definitely recommend.
