We saw this rated highly in the guidebook but the food was pretty average. Is hard to find at the back of a really funny little garden. We had mushrooms, soup and meat not terrible but not amazing

A bee landed on my wine almost immediately after it's brought on table. They wouldn't change it. That just made me mad. Don't come here by all means!

The food and atmosphere of the place was fantastic. The service was traditional Russian and without a smile, but everything was served quickly and without any questions. The food was also local, traditional and fantastic.

The food was excellent, the atmosphere was cosy and the homemade medvuch was the best I have ever had. But the waitresses did not speak any english at all and they really pressured us to order our food quickly coming to our table with very grumpy faces every 2 minutes.

We tried several restaurants in Susdal and Chaynaya was from far the best one. The food was absolutely exquisite. The fish soup (uha) and the pelmeni with chicken (prepared in a clay pot and coffered with pastry were absolutely amazing and simply the best we have tried in almost a month spent in Russia. Try it, you will never thank... More

Came here after I read the excited reviews. What I found was a simple restaurant with a menue like most others. Very nice location close to the Kremlin with a great view. The food was ok, a good average. Small portions, average quality and taste. Service was the same, not bad, not good - somewhere in between. Not that I... More

Очень вкусно, но дороговато. Официантки вежливые. Authentic Russian cuisine. Very tasty, but a little overpriced place. Helpful staff. Funny mistakes in English menu:)))
