Very cool atsmophere with traditional "Kievan Rus" style, and old-fashioned decorations and interior design. The traditional Ukrainian food is very tasty, and is beautifully presented as well.

I have now eaten at K. G. three times. So I think I have enough information to leave a review. Service has always been good. Food has not been superior, but very solid. Menu is exclusively Eastern European. They have many traditional Ukrainian dishes ... I like their Borsch. Service has always been excellent. Very friendly staff. Decor is interesting... More
