We had bear pelmens, lamb etc. and everything didn't only taste amazing but was also delivered to the table with good russian hospitality. The atmospehre is authentic with the singers and vodka pourings and even the pricing is very high, it's worth it.

Traditional Russian restaurant where you eat and drink a lot of vodka. You can not get any closer to Russia without traveling there. Saslik is situated just few steps from the Russian embassy so if you need a visa is just minutes away.
