Legend has it, this is a semi secret place hidden in the enormous Biblioteka restaurant. The name (apteka is Russian for drugstore) echoes the interiors: window-shops and shelves are packed with pots, jars and glasses reminding of alchemists in search of the philosopher's stone. That's why the place is dim and waiters speak in muffled and mysterious voices.
However the menu is typical Indian: chole masala, tandoori chicken, pitta bread and lassi. Fans say the food is really spicy so think twice before testing your taste buds. And check their bar where all cocktails have funny names like Phobia, Mandragora and Houdini and have homemade liquor added. After one shot, you’ll easily get everything in the book about the Minor Arcana in Tarot.
