The Starlite Diner ranks among the most striking of all novelties in modern Moscow—an authentic, allegedly completely American-made chrome-plated American diner that appears like an alien spacecraft among the city's Stalinist buildings. It was brought over from Chicago bit by bit and assembled in a central Moscow garden square. It's a great place for parties—American and English expats hang out here. The cocktail bar is a favorite. There are two Starlite Diners in Moscow, this one is quite close to the American Embassy. The interior is all red and silver, reviving the atmosphere of the America of the '50s. The walls are covered with pictures of movie stars and covers of past Life magazines. Comfortable sofas are placed at opposite sides of tables—a good arrangement to accommodate friendly company. The food is traditionally American, ranging from sweet waffles to a selection of burgers. The menu includes 50 of the restaurant's special cocktails; it also serves a fine selection of extravagant (and large) desserts and milkshakes.
The restaurant was in a great location. I felt very safe in the parking lot and crossing the street. I loved the food! I ate at the Starlite on 2 separate ocassions, having American food once and Russian food on the second ocassion! The waitresses and staff were fun and courteous! A great memory of Moscow!
Homesick for a taste of America? Visit the Starlight diner for a sandwich/burger and shake.
Shakes are delicious, but a bit on the pricey side.
Sandwiches are excellent, burgers OK
Great service and ambience, as diner is tucked away in a nice parklike atmosphere.
I like everything about this place. So much so, that for my last 3 years in Moscow, I had breakfast there every morning that I was in town.
The food is always good, consistently. The staff are superb and friendly.
It became my home away from home: the wife and I celebrated birthdays and anniversaries there.
A real taste of home and I miss it.
Loved the star-lite diner.. was a small taste of home during our assignment in Moscow. The burgers are great, the shakes are to die for, and the staff are always pleasant. Every weekend... friday nite or saturday morning (for the great waffles), star-lite diner.. was a must. thanks star-lite,y'all helped us get through our time away from home.
