Troyka

Trying its best to recreate a Russian atmosphere with traditional dancing, music and costume, snowy murals and the A/C turned up so high you can see your own breath, you can’t fault Troyka for effort. The staff are Russian (although this can make ordering tricky for English speakers, and the food is authentic, hearty and full of oil and butter. We recommend the vareniki starter (boiled pastry stuffed with cottage cheese and served with sour cream), as well as the traditional chicken kiev and beef stroganoff. It’s best to head to Troyka late in the evening, as the band doesn’t even come on until 10.30pm, and the entertainment (which consists of dancing and singing) presumably only appears if there are more than two tables occupied in the restaurant. Hence it’s worth calling ahead to check whether it’s going to be a lively night. Otherwise, despite the good food, it’s a pretty empty, cold experience.
