We have been looking forward to dining at Rasputin for some time having recently moved to Swaffham, and we were not disappointed with the food or the service. We both started with the nibbles with vodka, which went down very well, and went on to the Borscht soup which was delicious and a meal in itself, with beetroot and other... More

We have been meaning to try this restaurant for some time and we visited it on Thursday evening. As previous reviewers have said the entrance and access does not really do this place justice. We started with bubbles and a shot of vodka and this was followed by some borscht soup which was nice and hot. We then had our... More

I visited here with friends recently and we all left extremely satisfied. The service was brilliantly efficient and friendly. The food was delicious and wholesome and the atmosphere was spot on. We would certainly come here again.

Because we hadn't either. We went as a party of four on a Saturday night. Lots of stairs to climb and then a very individual restaurant, not too formal and with the tables well spaced. The beers include a Russian Lager and a Russian Bitter. The lager is OK (then I'm not a lager drinker) the bitter is fabulous, more... More

A group of twelve went to this restaurant last Saturday. One of the group got in touch with the owner and she organised a selection of dishes for us to try. We had a selection of starters and a shot of fruit vodkas which was followed by a selection of mains. These were all very tasty and well presented. The... More

The food was delicious. We had extremely good time and were well looked after by the friendly owner. The recommendation on wine to go with our meal was spot on. The room was clean and very welcoming, felt like being back home.

My hubby and I visited here on a Wednesday evening. We were the first to arrive, the room was welcoming as was the wonderful woman that took care of us and cooked our beautiful food. We chose the trio of starters with vodka shots- 10/10. For mains I had beef goulash & my hub had babushka- both fantastic. We were... More

Had dinner here last night, authentic Russian cuisine freshly cooked and well presented. Two three course meals cost £33 - bargain! Like others say, don't be put off by the entrance. Highly recommended for something a little different.
