It was a great night! Nice dinner, nice service by friendly staffs, entertaining performance by the Russian musicians, well environment by nice decoration (Halloween theme) and the signature -20C ice room in this house made the night!

I especially like the Russian ornaments in gzhel style placed in the restaurant. Gzhel, a brand of Russian ceramics, painted with the distinctive blue and white pottery. It reminded me the old Tang dynasty also produced something similar, which is fabulously artistic.

The Russian musicians dressed up in traditional Russian costumes. When they started playing the Russian folk music, it created such lovely Russian countryside atmosphere, the Russian night began:
We started the appetizer with a big platter of mixed combination. From left to right, we had the Smoked Salmon Roll with Red Caviar and Cream, Cold Pork Jelly in Russian Style and Smoked Duck Breast with the Cranberry Sauce. The whole dish looked presentable and rich in ingredients. I especially like the cold pork Jelly, tasted special and savory in its texture.
Following the Ox-tail Borstch, which is one of the famous dishes here that highly recommended by my friend: “this is a must try item if you once visit here”. No doubt, very rich and strong taste of ox, plus the sweet taste of Beetroot and Tomato ( yumyum). I like it!
We had ordered some stuffed bread to taste with. When the bread came, I was surprised by how delicious they were! Warm and soft while the ingredients inside tasted lovely!
Then the main dishes arrived accordingly, the Siberian Dumplings with the mixture of Pork and Beef. They’re way too meaty but still fine, sweet and juicy.
The spaghetti with wild mushroom in cream sauce came after it. It’s very strong in cheese taste! I like it that the texture of spaghetti is smooth and thin. Very nice!
The last main dish arrived and it was huge! The Chef performed how he open-field fired the sirloin steaks on a vertical rotating spit in front of us, which was very exciting and interesting! It also showed us how fresh it was! After it, the Chef sliced the meats off a rotating vertical spit and put them on a big plate presentably. Within the same platter, there were a delicious spring chicken, baby pork ribs and grilled Sole Fillet with seasonal veggies. It’s a big dish combined beef, pork, chicken and fish, which satisfied all wants in once.

After we’ve done all the above, we moved to the ice room and enjoyed the shots of vodka, I simply love having to wear the furry coats in the -20C ice room. It made me felt like tasting the local vodka in real Russia, which’s awesome!
I think it’s quite fantastic to have such theme restaurant creating dining area, while serving an isolated area for creating another mood of drinking. It’s not common to have such restaurant in HK and I wish more of such kind of thematic restaurants will happen to come and boost up our tourism. Indeed, it really attracts people to visit more often.
I especially wanna say thank you to a staff, who helped us to bring our wheelchair walked up to the upper floor. (since this restaurant is located on the 2nd floor and it doesn’t serve any lifts, people can only walk the stairs) It’s totally out of his duties but he made it, which was really impressive and nice of him, thank you. I see the friendly atmosphere and helpful service of the staffs here, which many local restaurants do not have.
