I have always held this restaurant in high esteem - grandiose, and aesthetically pleasing interior; very good service; and furthermore, great food ! Two Cod Pirogis (as a starter), were great. Main course - Seafood Pelmeni - which I had never had before, was tremendous.

When millions of tourists want to shop 'til they drop,
they do it along Brompton Road and its boutique-lined
tributaries, including the world-renowned Harrods. And
when millionaires want to flaunt what they've already
got, many of them find Knightsbridge and Belgravia the

ultra-luxe exterior and you'll find some of this
