Very nice venue. Usually I am not really a fan of russian food. But the borsch, selodka pod schuboj and the pelmeni very convincing. I really recommend this restaurant.

Friendly greeting at the door and shown to our table. Ordered the food I’d been missing from Russia and it came promptly and was very delicious! Prices are reasonable for the location and I look forward to going again soon.

Overall we had a great experience here on Valentine’s Day. The food was delicious and the decor was very pretty. Unfortunately however, the atmosphere was slightly ruined by the live performers. Not only was the volume far too loud making it hard to talk across...More

I dined in Mari Vanna many times, and never was left disappointed with service or the food. Its not cheap, and even pricier than some of Mayfair trendy places, but really worth it. And its strange for me to read other reviews about unfriendly and...More

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
perfect place to do so, often behind stately mansion
walls or down quiet private mews. Delve beyond the
ultra-luxe exterior and you'll find some of this
