Godunov Tokyo

Godunov, one of the few reputable Russian restaurants in Tokyo, is located on the 5th floor of the Marunouchi building, connected directly to Tokyo station.

The restaurant has a pleasant modern decor, and one of the most amazing views of the old Tokyo station building.

Traditional Russian cuisine

If you want to taste a bit of everything, there are courses that you can have ranging in price from ¥3,500 to ¥7,000, all containing plenty of beloved classics from Russian cuisine.

Here are some of the top choices if you order a la carte from the menu.

Pictured above are the must-try piroshki! You get two for just ¥500 and they come with various kinds of fillings. From top left, turning clockwise, these piroshki were egg and leek, beef and onion, pork and onion curry, mash potato and mushrooms.

You can also order all kinds of fancy Russian salads as side dishes. On the top left here is the classic Russian salad olivier (¥680), which contains apples, bacon, beets, carrots and green peas.

Another Russian classic: borscht. This is one of the signature dishes at Godunov. The beautiful red comes from the beets in it.

It is a rich sweet soup with large pieces of tender beef tongue.

About halfway through, if you want a change in taste, you can add some Russian sour cream to make it smoother.

There are some rare dishes that are also very well worth it. Try this gorgeous beef sirloin pie with a red wine sauce (¥3,400) for instance and you shouldn't be disappointed.

For dessert, you can have this nice syrniki (¥1,000), which is often described as a kind of Russian pancaked made with cottage cheese.

In closing...

It's not very often that you see Russian restaurants in Japan, especially a very good one like Godunov. If you feel like something different, you should try it out next time you're in Ebisu.
