Asian restaurants in Moscow
- Sort by:
If you wanted to go to Disney World, but somehow ended up in Moscow, Turandot should be at the top of your dining wish list. Completely costumed in wigs and gowns, musicians play chamber music and servers scuttle to and fro. The decor is unbelievably extravagant, with hand-painted furniture, gilded light fixtures and frescoed cupola ceiling. It is certainly every bit as elaborate as Cinderella’s castle. Turandot is named for a Puccini opera set in old Peking, which is as good a reason as any to serve Chinese and Japanese food in this baroque interior.
It’s hard to say which sight is more grandiose: the glitzy interior of this ultrafancy eating establishment or the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour that looms across the street. Actually, the views of the cathedral through the restaurant’s picture windows are a perfect complement to the crystal chandelier and giant gold-framed mirror that hang in the dining room. The modern Asian menu features sushi and other seafood dishes, which are all prepared with delightful innovations. And the service is top notch. Don’t be put off by the row of Mercedes parked out the front; you will be treated well here – even if you show up on foot.
