About Starlite Diner
The first Starlite Diner was opened in Moscow in 1995 by a team of professionals, who acquainted Moscow with the American concept of the Diner. The project had an immediate success both among the Russians and the expats. Since then, the Starlite has earned a reputation as the favorite American restaurant and has become famous for its excellent service, delicious food and a combination of price and quality.
It's most certainly American and those red booths are the real thing - the only Russian elements here are the electric sockets. You'll hear more English spoken in this diner than anywhere else in Moscow, which adds to the otherworldly home-away-from-home experience. The menu spins out all the classics in authentic style, including huge waffles, burgers and giant milkshakes made with Oreo cookies, massive breakfast and huge filter coffees from the pot. American diners are now de rigueur in Moscow but Starlite are still the original and best. Now it's a chain of five venues, all in the city center of Moscow.
