This is my favorite show of all time. I enjoy it in Russian.
I would like the English subtitled version to be transliterated a little better. It would be much funnier if the idea got across rather than the literal translation. Cripple and Half wit do not mean the same as it does to us
Still, no matter the state of translation seasons 2-4 and the Kitchen in Paris film should be seen.
This show is a world asset.

A great TV series, the first season is scored 9.2/10 on IMDB. Source: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2930610/

The show is funny and witty with original scenes that will leave you cracking. Hope amazon uploads the other seasons up soon.

Had no Idea what to expect since I never seen a Russian television show before and do not speak any Russian. I was hooked right from the beginning, The cast gels together right from the beginning like they were acting together for years and found myself forgetting I was even reading subtitles. While I can understand some Russian speaking people say the translation is too literal I know there are just some sarcastic expressions in all languages that don't translate well into another but you get used to it after episode two and it all flows naturally. The characters are all likable even the obnoxious, drunk, gambling Chef Viktor Barinov, who we find out has a very caring side. For as much as he insults his staff he will defend them and to anyone who criticizes them. I also love the fact that they have Dmitriy Nagiev, who I have learned is a famous Russian actor, play himself as the owner of the restaurant. I have always felt the kitchen of an upscale restaurant makes a perfect setting for a sitcom and this show does not disappoint. I rank it right up there with the 90's BBC sitcom Chef! starring Lenny Henry. I read that CBS picked up the international distribution rights and really hope they subtitle the other seasons (4 so far) and two movies that were made from this. And of course I hope Amazon will carry them and make it available to us.

This show was excellent. Wish season 2 would be put up soon as it is not available with English subtitles anywhere else - even for purchase. Please Amazon, add it.

The photography is outstanding and the script writing is very smart. I usually laugh out loud through every episode, even with the additional task of keeping up with the subtitles out of the corner of my eye. This is extremely entertaining and I will be seriously bummed out when I run out of episodes to watch. Actually, I might revisit the series after a year of two and watch it all over again.
I cannot recommend this highly enough.

Super funny. Even though it is in Russian, I enjoy watching and reading the English subtitles. The interplay between the characters makes the show. The music selection during cut-scenes and in the background also adds to the program - where else can you get Wagner, Enya, and the Cat Empire's "Lost Song" on the same program?

Invest your time for the first two episodes and it will pay off.

I'm nine episodes in and am very much enjoying this show. It has a very similar feel to the BBCs Hotel Babylon but with a bit more Russian sensibility, which adds to the oddness. It's light, funny and fast paced. Highly recommended. I wish Amazon would offer the remaining seasons.
