Chiho 

Noodles do the talking 

Chiho, which means “glutton” in Chinese, was designed by St. Petersburg architect Yevgeniya Uzhegova and its interior is covered with Chinatown-style graffiti. Warning - the chef comes from China’s Shandong province and doesn’t speak a word of English or Russian. You can’t go wrong choosing one of the four types of noodles (glass, soba, udon or rice) with beef, chicken, shrimp or veggies, from 290 rubles ($5).
