Tse Fung

Restaurant, Asian

This luxurious Chinese restaurant, located in the heart of St Petersburg, is a franchise of a famous Swiss restaurant in Geneva. It has been successfully operating under the same name for over a decade. Tse Fung offers a colourful variety of Chinese dishes and is one of the few venues in St Petersburg where you can enjoy the famous Peking duck recipe. The traditional dish is carefully prepared following the many guidelines that take several days to complete, and it is one of the most expensive items on the menu.

China Gramota

Restaurant, Chinese, Asian

China Gramota represents authentic Cantonese cuisine. The chef of the restaurant, Zhang Xianchen, has modernized the classics of Chinese cuisine while fully preserving its authenticity. Located in one of the tallest buildings in St Petersburg’s city center, it serves not just an exquisite selection of dishes, but it also has a great view.

China Sad

Restaurant, Chinese

This restaurant has been operating for over 15 years, and the reason why people keep coming back is its extensive selection of memorable Chinese recipes. Most of the dishes are prepared following traditional recipes, although there are a few original creations. China Sad doesn’t just serve dishes from one area of the country either, it includes recipes from Sichuan province and other regions as well.


Restaurant, Chinese, Asian

The typical barrier between the kitchen and the guests is little more than a teppanyaki grill at MeatLine. The grill is where talented chefs show off their culinary skills, giving patrons the opportunity to witness the entire process, as well as make sure all the ingredients are 100% fresh. The menu is a mix of European and Asian cuisine, and vegetarians can enjoy vegetable dishes as well.

Jack & Chan

Restaurant, Chinese, Asian, American

If you’re having one of those days where you can’t decide what you want to eat, Jack & Chan is the place to go. With a mix of American and Asian cuisine, including Chinese, Thai and Pan-Asian items, the venue has all the bases covered. Enjoy stir-frys, spring rolls and curry dishes on one side and burgers, chicken wings and fries on the other. Jack & Chan is recommended for all those who want to try the best of Eastern and Western traditions.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
