Reviews for Samovar

A fascinating east European grocery store with a wide variety of frozen, pre-packaged and fresh food items and also books ! Take a walk around and see what you like and try it out . I tried a strawberry chocolate cheesecake ice cream which was delicious and not too sweet. Also liked the Georgian cheese pastry - a slightly sour soft cheese baked in a flaky puff pastry. The potato pastry was also nice and everything was warm and fresh.Some items were halal. Keen to visit again full review

One of the oldest Russian stores in SF Bay Area. They always combined traditional grocery store, with familiar selection of products, and a bit of culture: used to rent vhs videos from here many years ago :)Now they still keep selling books in Russian, which is probably not very profitable, but adds a nice touch.The owners, especially Alex, is very friendly and always ready to help.

This market was recommended to me by a friend after moving to Mountain View. The owner, Alex, is helpful, friendly & has a great sense of humor. My favorites here are Georgian dumplings, sour cream, beef/potato & mushroom piroshki, chicken soup, pickles, milka, and hazelnut chocolate. I fully support this business and will continue to shop here regularly for the wonderful experience and quality products.
