We have tried mixed Ukrainian homemade sausages, traditional soups borscht and solyanka. All was average, have tried better traditional Ukrainian food. But the design of restaurant and friendliness of staff is 5*.

We had this place recommended by the tour guide from the free walking tour, and it's absolutely fantastic. The waiting staff is dressed up in traditional Ukrainian clothing and the food is through and through Ukrainian. Good for lunch or a cosy dinner.

The restaurant is the greatest one in KIEV which you can feel the Ukrain culture and traditional food as Chicken kiev and borch soup.. I also would like to say thank you to Miss Maria as she hosted us excellent from beginning to end.. Everyone who goes to Kiev should visit here for sure.

Loved this place, as a first timer to Ukraine, it was good to get the authentic taste of Ukraine. Highly recommend the Borsch, Taras Bulba light beer, Salo with the bread, Chicken Kiev - and if you are feeling very adventurous the Kholodets. Very Tasty, but the texture is something else. Will go back here when in Kiev. Friendly staff,... More

Not familiar with Ukrainian cuisine? Well, Taras Bulba is a perfect place to experience the wide variety of dishes from across the country. Nothing fru-fru, but everything good and hearty. I dined here several times during a summer stay in Kyiv and wasn't disappointed once. Choose several dishes, you won't be disappointed. Prices are reasonable. Not fancy, either, but decorated...

We came across this place by accident, on our way to the center. Boy was this a lucky day. We ordered Pilmeni and some Borsht soup which were both very good. The Pilmeni were fresh and juicy, didn't stick to each other which kept them unbroken and full of taste (both meat and mashed potatoes were great). The Borsht soup... More

Ukrainian restaurant on Prorizna, parallel to Kreschatek. A bit kitsch but nothing overbearing. Welcoming reception on arrival. Cloakroom for jackets. I had the pea soup with garlic to start and "Chicken Kiev" (you just have to go for it) both of which were excellent. Decent local wine to accompany. Would recommend if you want to sample good Ukrainian cooking.

The food is not like unforgettable and this looks a bit like mass-touristic place, but the athmosphere is still authentic and service excellent - overall I would say our group was very happy with this place. Price I guess moderate, not the cheapest ever but while the price level in Ukraine is very cheap this was not expensive either. Menus... More
