Came midweek and we were the only diners. A shame because this restaurant offers something a bit different and the food and experience is good. The owner / chef / waitress is welcoming and friendly and helpful regarding the menu. We would have liked the gulasch with a lot more pimenton. The decor is unusual and could be a bit... More

This was our first visit to sample authentic Russian cuisine. Irina who is the owner, chef and waitress welcomed us and walked us through the menu taking time and care to explain the dishes available. We opted for mixed platter of starters with flavoured vodkas. The starters were great and I particularly enjoyed the smoked salmon blini's. The vodka's also... More

Having recently moved to Swaffham, I was keen to try this restaurant,having read the reviews. The entrance is a bit daunting, up a steep staircase which opens to the large open restaurant. The kitchen was to one side and with a pool table round the back, on the way to the toilets, the ambiance was slightly that of a social... More

Have used Rasputin often..always good service and excellent food. The owner explains everything on the menu and as everything is freshly prepared will always adjust it to suit personal taste. If you're in Swaffham..give it a try.

We started off with starters, which we had a mixture, vegetarian nibbles, which was Olives, nuts and cheese on toast, which were reported as nice, meat nibbles which was pate, and salmon on toast, and...
