Russkaya Chaynaya Irkutsk Reviews
Beautiful turn of the century style restaurant May 24, 2008
Possibly the best food in the whole of Russia and definitely the highlight of Irkutsks for me is the little Russkaya Chaynaya tea house.
The interior of the place is just splendid. Beautifully styled Tsarist fin-de-siécle interior, which includes staff wearing traditional servants dresses.
Though it is listed as a tea house, the place actually serves all day food: breakfasts, lunch and dinner. It has a very extensive menu with delacies ranging from hearty soups to salads to goulash to delicious bliny's with a range of sweet and savoury toppings.
In summer time there is also a beer garden next door.
