I like tasty but not too spicy uzbeck cuisine at this restaurant. Sea buckthorn tea is also fine. There is a perfect place for lunch with frends or business partners.

The decoration is original and makes you feel abroad. That's most of what's good about karavan. The menu is long and the English version is just a transliteration of the original names, meaning you'll have to guess your way to the order because the staff don't speak enough English to help you. I'd say the only common ground of the... More

Its a cozy Uzbek style restaurant, with variety of Oriental dishes. Uzbek pilaw is really good here and worth trying. I recommend this place for a great dinner.

This place is old and good restaurant with it's history in the city. It is Uzbek and Lebanon cousin. The best pilaw in the city. Very good food. Service is excellent. I definitely recommend this place for lunch and dinner.

Not the first time i was there and glad to confirm that this is one of the jewels in Kiev if you like food from Morocco to Uzbekistan. Any meat is done to perfection. Every starter is a joy and as a Swiss, I am always proud to show my Ukrainian friends a place they don't know yet and are... More

This is a stylish restaurant with food from the Caucasus and Central Asia. The food is authentic and very tasty. They manage a wide variety of dishes really well. The salads were delicious and fresh even in February. The restaurant is expensive though and the dinner will take time. Well worth a visit.
