Bèijiā'ěr Hú Xī Cāntīng

Russian in Mănzhōulǐ

The name of the place translates as 'Lake Baikal Western Restaurant', giving some indication of its target audience. Rub shoulders with Russians who come for robust Chinese-style Russian dishes such as borscht and steaks, all accompanied by a Russian soundtrack. The set meals are the way to go, letting you sample the best dishes; paired with cold draft beer, they work wonders.

There's a picture menu available. It's a solid back-up if other popular haunts have queues out the door.
