The bar stools look like horses with tails, statues, chaplin videos. Start with house horilka (vodka) degustation, lard, pickles, sausage. Then Borsch with garlic bread (pampushka) and beef Stroganoff.

I like this restaurant for its set lunches as these are good value and there are a few of them to choose from. Along with the home made compote this makes for a pleasant break in the middle of the day. A La Carte is varied and well cooked but nothing exceptional. Nice decor and good enough service. Good beer... More

Wanted to try typical Ukrainian food. Had the dumplings and the chicken Kiev. Waited a very long time for the food and they weren't busy. Food was good but small portions. Waitress made a point of saying service charge was not included.

Experienced a wide selection of typical Ukrainian food as recommended by the waiter. Lucky we were with some Ukrainian friends who reduced the volume of food by at least 50% as there was so much being recommended! Everything was delicious - best Ukrainian food I've had

We visited Pervak recently. The evening was spoiled by the restaurant's refusal to accept payment by credit card despite prior agreement to do so. Unpleasant conversations, bully boy bouncers and intimidation did not work. We held our ground. I would not recommend this restaurant.
