First visit to Oulu not knowing where to eat. Took advice from siri but concerned because at 7pm the place was empty. Strange menu told stories rather than what the food was about. Food was OK. Nothing to complain about. Not very special.

A nice, peaceful place with an old Russian decor. The service was professional and friendly. PS. The sauerkraut soup was excellent.

The best sauerkraut soup on Earth, have been raving about it and attempting to recreate it for friends and family. A great introduction to Russian cuisine! Also, the sweet gherkins with honey and sour cream. Not to be missed!

This Russian themed restaurant has not changed a bit in 30 years. This is both in good and bad. There is the same old menu, so you know what you get, but on the other hand some dishes would have deserved facelifts over the years....More
