Eating at the Russian Tea Room in Harbin is like eating in a Russian grandmother’s house. The decor is homey, full of antiques from former Russians who lived in Harbin in the early 20th century.
I enjoyed the Russian tea (14 rmb) and salad, but the chicken and rice (29 rmb) was bland. I don’t know much about Russian food other than borscht so I could be wrong, but the chicken and rice looked quasi-Chinese, though the menu offered Chinese chicken and rice as well. I’d definitely return, but I’d order something else.
