The food was just okay and certainly not worth the higher than normal prices but you have to remember you’re near Central Street and everything is much more expensive here. The service was just decent but again not worth the price. The ambiance however was nicer than expected and a lady was playing some music with a violin and that... More

There are basically three vegetarian options. I knew there wouldn't be much, but two of the three were cold salad type dishes. I don't recommend the vegetable salad, as it's just globbed with dressing and nothing special. The other cucumber and tomato salad is interesting. It has a wasabi sauce drizzled over the top. I liked it, but I love... More

Foods are average. They are famous of bread but i think it's overrated. Waitress is not friendly and not paying attention when taking order. Poor hospitality need more improvement.

I guess the building is actually original and quite old, but the interior is a cheap modern "imagineering" of an early 1900s Russian/Western interior. A lot of "gold"... But I guess the original décor had no way to survive the cultural revolution and other messy historic events. The food comes in small servings and are meant to be eaten the... More

Before my husband and I visited Harbin, people recommended that we should try Russian cuisine there. We were recommended by the locals to this restaurant. We noted this restaurant did not accept bookings and its policy was " First come, first served". Our hotel was quite near to this eatery and on 2 consecutive nights we witnessed its full house...

We had been in the hills for 3 days before returning to see the highlights of Harbin in mid Feb 2016. We had called in at this place during our evening tour Central Street and was informed by a quite lovely lady the wait would be at least 1 hour. The place was absolutely buzzing, with waiters zipping around, all... More

It is located in the center of the Central st.You have to go early lin a queue otherwise you have to wait for nearly an hour for the next shift. The best ones I enjoy is beef in pot ,lamb in pot and Russian soup.The service attitude here is the way of stated owned enterprise.

The food is quite all right, however as my native Harbinese friend told me, you do not go to Huamei for their "Western food"; it is more an attraction than a good restaurant. For good food, there are many other choices (for which you don't need to queue!). The interior is very fancy and Russian-like. I can understand why some... More

This is one of the worst restaurants I've been to in China (and I lived there for two years!). While the food was supposedly Russian it resembled something from a school cafeteria. Tasteless, poorly presented and unappetizing. My 'Russian' salad was a plate of lettuce with thousand island dressing poured on top. The only two positives were the waitresses traditional... More

This is a local family run restaurant. Not many people know what to expect with Russian homestyle food but it is basic, warming and hearty. Suitable for big group. Reasonable prices (I think we paid around 200kuai each and all had a main and shared a couple bottles of red). Its super central. Good after a day of seeing ice... More
