Great burgers at a good price. Fries come with a tasty mustard sauce. They also have an interesting selection of colas and beers.

Stopped here for quick lunch. Ordered 3 burgers - they were done within 10 min. I asked medium, they did almost well done, but with sauces and fillings it was still good - not the best ever as many people say, but good. Considering the price of 780 rub for 3 burgers, i say it is value for money

The last few years have been a real turning point in Russia as, for some strange reason, Russians have "got it" on how to make truly superb burgers. Back in the '90's it was Soviet awful - the worst burgers ever, with "ketchup" that was often weird spaghetti sauce. Ten or fifteen years ago it was just plain Euro-awful, in that European way that burgers were pale imitations of really good US burgers. But in the last couple of years... Whoa! Somehow it has just clicked in Russia, something deep in the consciousness that connects to flame-broiled burgers with righteous buns and all the right sides. So now you run into big-time, high end burger places all over. Salyut (a better way to spell the name in transliteration) is the best of the best.

I've been visiting here a few times a year since it's opened and it is getting even better. Imagine my surprise when the absolute best burger I've had in a very long life of travel throughout the US and throughout the world was at Salyut in Nizhny Novgorod. Amazing!

For their beef burgers they use Black Angus beef from Miratorg, a Russian company that pioneered big-time, super high quality cattle raising on the steppe (prairie) lands. They imported cowboys from the US to operate their ranches, and their beef is fantastic. Salyut does classic burgers with your choice of white or black buns (I prefer the black), and they also do sashlik (pork cheek kebab barbeque) burgers, duck, turkey, vegan and occasionally wild stuff like marinated beef cheek burgers. They're all very good but I prefer the classic burger or the duck burger, sometimes with cheese, sometimes not. The cole slaw is fantastic, home style and not too sweet with cole slaw sauce tending more to the peanuty style asian cole slaw sauce. Fries are outstanding, slightly thicker homestyle fries, not thin fries, and the home made ketchup is superb.

I also like the ambiance. You feel like you've been teleported into a hipster joint in Seattle or Portland, Oregon, with chefs in the open kitchen wearing hipster beards, ball caps and, of course, tattoos. This is not your parents' Soviet Union. It's on the edge of a small park square right off the main walking street in the historic heart of Nizhny Novgorod.

The only catch? It's busy at lunch on work days and afternoons on weekends, as the locals love it too.
