Re: “Taste of Russia [Closed]

Food fit for Romanov's it is not. Six of us went a few nights ago. We ordered appetizers and dinner. My appetizer came 1/2 hour after everyone elses. I was told, by the waitress, "It would come vhen it vas cooked". It arrived with my dinner. The piroski was in a pasty instead of a dough, but I thought it was tasty, the people who ordered it did not.The herring was less tasty and the Greek Salad was overburdened with peppers. When I got my pelmeni, I was please with their taste. Two chicken kiev's were ordered and looked and tasted commercial. One of our guests thought they were "Hot Pockets". Two stroganoffs were ordered, which were made with inferior meat and were tough and chewy. My stuffed cabbage was partially cooked and I returned it. I was offered something instead and got the Salmon Tower appetizer, which was very good. One other person ordered the Zraza, I think it was spelled, very much like a rouladen, but dry and chewy. The Cake Napoleon was a puff pasty turned into a brick, cold, hard and tasteless. No one was happy. Very uneven and very unskilled service. I have travelled the world and have eaten in Russia. This was more like Gulag food, I suspect.
