ZIMA Russian Restaurant
Treat yourself to the best priced caviar in London alongside the favourites of Russian cuisine, welcoming atmosphere and sip on our homemade selection of infused vodka.
Zima’s seasonal menu draws inspiration in flavour and culture from our adventures and travelling across all regions of Russia.
Enjoy our signature dishes such as pirozhki (baked buns), pelmeni (dumplings) and seasonal specials alongside our selection of home infused vodka nastoikas.
In our three storey townhouse we also run our own Zima Picklery, where we ferment all our seasonal vegetables, fruit, and drinks.
A fine selection of world wines, craft beers and signature cocktails are also being poured at the restaurant and bar.

Lovely restaurant with very polite and helpful staff, great to try something different in London.
Amazing time here spent for my birthday with my friends. The server and manager were very accommodating, kind, attentive and caring - we had an incredible night. The food and cocktails are outstanding too - the vodka platter was to die for. Can't wait to come back - thanks thanks making my birthday so special!!
really great place with amazing food and a nice atmosphere. very covid safe
It was great service and lovely food
Definitely coming back
Really nice experience all round. Our servers where lovely and the food was really good. I would be interested to see if the menu got any bigger when they fully opened up indoors aswell as it was quite bread/meat heavy. I had the stroganoff and it was delish.
The service was very slow and the table was shaking, so we spilled our hot drinks multiple times. Everything else was great.
A wonderful experience for our first dinner out with friends after the lockdown.
The staff was lovely and fun, the food delicious. Thank you for the high chair and the birthday candles! We loved it and we will be back!
I had the best time at the ZIMA! Nice comfortable set up for outside dining. The food was lovely and has lots of sharing options. Best part was the vodka!
Really great Russian food and drinks. It's in the middle of the busiest Soho area, so seating was quite packed, but I had an enjoyable time. Highly recommend.
the service and food were both excellent, my family had such a good experience and we all agreed it was the highlight of our week! We had never tried russian food before either so this was a super introduction to it. Will definitely be returning!
Food and cocktails were really good. I come from Eastern European country so our food is very similar/some are same, was easy to judge and I knew what I was eating. Sadly had no small portions of caviar at the time! Table dining times weren’t clear enough. We were told by waitress and a host we have until 5pm. After we paid the bill we were interrupted by quote abrupt either supervisors or manager, telling us that he needs this table NOW! I said yes we have until 5pm and we still had 7minutes to get ourselves together, he didn’t care what I was saying and kept repeating he needs it now. Not very pleasant and quite rude in fact. Sadly won’t be coming back again.
Thanks to Mariana for her perfect service, good food and not long to wait. Great vodka too x
Food is very bad. We ordered quite a lot to taste and share and not a single dish was good. We ended up barely eating anything. The prices are very high, especially alcohol. Not worth the price at all. The service was nice, the team is friendly, but overall would not recommend for the quality and high price
Tasty chicken schnitzel and dumplings with stock were amazing. Helpful staff suggestions.
Great food but service needs to improve: got 2 salads instead of one ordered, 2 cups of tea instead of one we asked for, additional item on the bill that we did not order.
The staff service is outstanding. Food is better than at any other Russian restaurants we’ve been to. Ambiance is good if you like to be in a center of everything!
Loved it- the food was delicious, the staff was attentive and happy to help with recommendations and making our visit super enjoyable. Can’t wait to be back!
Delicious food as always
Great food, very authentic!
Great food & friendly service. The current set up is very busy & noisy, though the staff generally do a good job of attending to customers. Offering blankets to help brace the cold which helps.
Great experience as my first time going to a Russian restaurant. I came here with 2 friends and we all loved the food. Maybe the downgrade it was that was chilly outside and no heaters or blankets but food was great and service was spotless, very attentive and helpful with recommendations to choose our food.
Nice house cocktails as well worthy to try. We will definetly be back but eating indoors probably. Thank you to all the team
Very lovely staff, delicious food!
First time at a Russian restaurant.
Blankets available at the terrace which helped not being too cold in the evening.
Zima is a wonderful bar - delicious Russian food and vodka infusions! Highly recommend.
Very good selection of food and drinks. Service a little bit slow, but this has to be gauged against the current COVID-19 issues. Would definitely recommend and visit again!
Amazing food, friendly service and beautiful interior
Excellent food, friendly service. Would definitely visit again
Great place, good food, friendly service!
I highly recommend going to the ZIMA restaurant.
One of the best bars in soho, delicious food and a fun atmosphere
Great Russian food as always!
A beautiful place, nice atmosphere and excellent customer service! Everyone with a smile and willing to help.
The dishes would come a bit late that they usually do come in a restaurant but they were very busy!
Regarding the food we didn't get crazy as it's quite plain compared to our taste. Beautiful ambience thought and totally recommend the "aubergine rolls with hummus" that was delicious!
Try their own vodka in different flavors, light and tasty.
I have to mention that it's a bit pricey too...
Nice experience after all 🙂
Dear Zoio, Thank you for your review. We are glad that you had a nice experience and enjoyed out aubergine rolls with hummus. As you liked our homemade Nastoyka, I would like to let you know that we currently have a Christmas special. We would love to welcome you to ZIMA to try it! We hope to see you soon. Kind regards ZIMA
Great quality russian food! Very tasty.
Flavoured Shots are pricey considering the low alcohol percentage.
Dear Alexandra, Thank you for your review and rating. We hope to welcome you again soon. Kind regards, ZIMA
Good as always!
Good afternoon! Thank you for your review! We hope to see you soon. Kind regards, ZIMA
Delicious east European food, some dishes a bit over priced because of few caviars (draniki). We had dessert of the day - Napoleon which was dry, should be soft. Homemade tea is just amazing, as usual! However, overall was good! Definitely we will come back!
Dear AlionaB, We are sorry to hear that the Napoleon was not to your taste. We welcome you to come back and try our other desserts, hopefully you will enjoy these. We have a special this week! We look forward to your next visit. Kind regards, ZIMA
Never tried Russian cuisine before but will certainly be back. Menu was interesting and the food was really really good. The Honey Cake to finish was something else - as were the pancakes and condensed milk!
Definitely recommended 👍
Good afternoon, We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed our famous Honey Cake and that you will be back to try more! We hope that we see you very soon! Kind regards, ZIMA
When what you really want is excellent baboushka food!
