Entering the restaurant feels like stepping back in time, into a Russian grandma's parlour. Item by item, the decor looks kitsch but somehow it all works together to create a bizarrely charming atmosphere. We ate from the good value set lunch menu; well prepared Russian...More

Fantastic Russian restaurant in Knightsbridge. Amazing interior design, helpful staff, excellent quality and wonderful atmosphere. It is pricy, but is worthy. Definitely #beefstroganoff and #honeycake must be ordered. Strongly recommended.

I visited Mari Vanna with a few friends for my birthday in December last year (2016) We were in the restaurant area downstairs. The food was very good and the decoration is very quirky. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Very nice Russian restaurant. Great atmosphere, high quality Russian classics. A bit pricey, but guess justified by location and food quality. Would definitely pay a visit again.

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
