Russian in Meshchansky & Basmanny

This outrageously themed restaurant takes diners beyond the Polar circle, capturing the adventure and excitement of Siberia. With a helicopter in the centre of the dining room, you could almost imagine you'd arrived by air. Feast on typical ‘northern cuisine’ – ukha (famous Baikal fish soup); pelmeni (Russian-style ravioli) stuffed with wild boar or Kamchatka crab; and venison stroganoff.

There is also an expensive but authentic Siberian banya (hot bath) on the premises.
