5 of the best Russian restaurants in Tokyo (not too pricey)


These five restaurants are all very popular because they offer delectable authentic Russian cuisine. All of them have amazing dinner courses under ¥6,000, and two of them have super affordable lunch sets as well (around ¥1,000).

Feel free to follow favy!

Sungari [Shinjuku]

Having opened in 1957, this is one of the longest standing Russian restaurants in Japan. They are particular about using seasonal ingredients so the menu changes depending on which time of the year you go. You can't go wrong with their freshly made delicious piroshki, and roll cabbage in a tomato cream sauce. They also serve good wines from the southern regions of Russia that are worth the try.

If you go in a group, you might want to consider their gorgeous courses (from ¥6,000) with so much variety, and that also includes free-flowing alcoholic drinks.

Rogovski [Ginza]

This is a fairly new restaurant near Ginza station that has garnered already lots of fans because of its outstanding quality. You must absolutely try their signature dish: the Mille-feuilles of Beets with Pickled Herring & Potato Salad (pictured above) for ¥1,400.

Everything is really good and they draw from all kinds of regional specialties from across Russia so a good way to get the most of this place is by ordering a course. For lunch, they are from ¥2,800 and for dinner, they start at ¥4,500.

Chaika [Takadanobaba]

This excellent restaurant is in the student town of Takadanobaba, so the prices for lunch are very reasonable. There are three different sets at ¥1,200.

This is also a nice place for drinks. A good variety of vodkas, Russian wines, and Russian beers are on the menu.

Their dinner course is also comparatively cheaper than the other places at ¥4,000.

Roppongi Baikal [Roppongi]

This is a great restaurant with an at-home kind of vibe.

The lunch menu is really affordable here too, with four different sets at ¥1,000 that even come with a tea of coffee. The dinner courses are around ¥4,500.

Their pelmeni (Russian dumplings) are apparently very popular so you might want to give those a try!

Godunov [Ebisu]

This is a nice new restaurant near Tokyo station.

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.

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.
