Welcome to Kiev back in time. Traditional clothes on all the staff, traditional furniture and decoration as well. The staff are very friendly, dressed in the old traditional clothes of Ukraine. The food menu is huge with a variety of local dishes to choose from. The Chicken Kiev was outstanding! They have great choices of drinks as well. When we... More

As almost everywhere in Kiev staff refuse to talk Russian and at the same time they can not talk English. Food far not as tasty as it is in Moscow the same name chain. Service was quick but not welcoming. As I finished main course I was really forced to leave doesn't matter the restaurant was almost empty.

Definitely a place to go to if you want to try Ukrainian food while surrounded by mid 1800s Ukrainian house interior.

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...
