what the critics say


Matthew Norman - 8/10

Wednesday, January 02, 2013 - Mari Vanna’s charm lies in its offering of a nostalgic fantasy which is at once obviously ersatz and entirely seductive...Main courses were ideal winter warmers. “Really good, big flavour,” said my friend of golubtzi, two rectangular slabs of cabbage leaf-wrapped rice, pork and veal, covered with a luridly orange tomatoey sauce. Siberian pelmeni, wonton-style dumplings filled with pork and beef, were undersalted and anodyne (they too needed sour cream) but light and perfectly cooked.


Jay Rayner

Sunday, May 20, 2012 - We stick to the classics. We have a dish of pelmeni. The silky little meat-stuffed dumplings come with a cooling bowl of soured cream and are completely compelling. We have golubtzi, the cabbage leaves stuffed with a big, butch mix of pork, veal and rice. At Mari Vanna everything is stuffed, including the diners...Mari Vanna is completely bonkers, but in a sweet way. It really is charming.
