Description: "CARAVAN" - a restaurant with many years of impeccable reputation for a place of delicious oriental cuisine. All who have visited us at least once, change their view of the cuisine of the region once and for all. Five types of pilaf, manti, khinkali, shurpa and lagman, kebabs and hummus, dolma and couscous, chebureks and gazlem, lamb on spit, dishes cooked in Indian tandoori grill - only reading the menu of the restaurant Caravan causes emotional excitement. The East is not only delicate, but also delicious. The atmosphere of the restaurant is the mesmerizing smoke of the hookah, the crackling of the brazier, belly dancing, tea cups of fragrant tea, Persian carpets and Moroccan tiles - what we call "head in the clouds", nirvana and complete harmony with the world. The restaurant regularly hosts festivals of seasonal products and operates a halal menu - dishes prepared in accordance with the principles of Muslim cuisine from quality, healthy products. The caravan is an ideal place

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 menu's dishes is that the come from Muslim countries (Uzbekistan, Syria, Lebanon, etc). Some are good, some are regular and some are just not good enough like the bland chorba or the berries tart with old tasting dough, but they all share two things: they're small and overpriced.
A party of 4 with drinking a small carafe of house wine and without ordering too much food paid USD 80, which is s lot nowadays on Kiev.

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.

i chose this restaurant for my birthday. the restaurant is a bit expensive, especially for the wines. we had traditional plov and it was good! also recommend hummus as a starter. The staff is friendly, atmosphere is warm and cosy.
