I absolutely love coming to Imbir. The food and drinks are so nice and the staff are friendly, efficient and helpful. Our last visit there however was soured by a manageress who was walking around and telling all the staff off , it was impossible...not see this and made us feel quite uncomfortable, not to mention that it is very unprofessional.More

Very good food with a nice atmosphere thanks to all the books around you. Nice staff who speak very good English and very good vegetarian food. I had fried tofu which was so good I wish I could make it at home. It was a...bit of a work to find this place, cause it's not in the centre, but worth the walk.More

I felt very welcome from the moment I entered the restaurant. It is a great location and captivating decor. The menu is original (with an English version) and very diverse with a great price point for the quality and quantity. The staff were friendly. I...had the broccoli soup and crispy tofu sobs noodles and both were divine and delicate. The crispy tofu is something that I will remember for a long time to come. You have something special here, keep up the good work.More

Had a great two course meal here. I found that the English menu wasn't very detailed so if you have allergies, would be best to say something! Everything I ordered looked and tasted fantastic, and the interior design is very pleasant. I went there in...my hiking boots and was a bit out of place, so this restaurant is a bit fancier. Would highly recommend to anyone, regardless of whether or not they are vegan/vegetarian.More

Imbir was as good as the reviews said. Lovely tranquil atmosphere as you walk in, fascinating menu full of things that - as a vegetarian for the last 35 years I've still never heard of. I ordered the panikesh with quinoa. Just lush. The kompot/uzvar...drink was weird and delicious too. Service was great, though I wasn't offered a dessert which I was probably not going to have anyway. Highly recommend this place.More

After visiting this place we were both surprised with such a good rating. The interior was nice and that was the only thing that deserves that star. To put it simple the food sucks. It was a vegetarian friendly place but as a vegetarian myself...I was surprised how blandly or disgustingly everything tasted. We ordered soups, salads, smoothies and desserts and everything tasted so much out of place or too oily, without taste or poorly cooked. Tangerine cheesake was good and tea too but you can’t go wrong with tea. Everything else was terrible plus music was really annoying. Won’t reccomend won’t comeback.More

The food was really fantastic, not like the usual veggie fair you might find in a British vegetarian cafe. We had the sweet potato noodles with asparagus and seitan (we swapped the fern noodles for sweet potato), which was really great. We had the hummus...and the avocado, pecan and mango(?) starter, both of which were also really yummy. The paneer nori dish was also yummy, kind of like a veg sushi - paneer in seaweed but was probably the least favourite of the four. All of this plus a desert (tangerine cheesecake) and two smoothie type drinks was £23. Amazing value. The setting was really comfortable and nice as well - a proper restaurant type setting with proper restaurant food. I would definitely recommend this place. Staff spoke English very well and were very friendly. Don’t forget to tip, it makes all the difference!More

I love this place and come here every time I come to Kiev. The food is delicious , although I find the portions sizes quite small and the quantity changes from day to day, I guess depending on the chef on duty. I love the...fact that many dishes can be made vegan, however some improvements can be made with vegan deserts. The staff are generally very nice and friendly and are always happy to recommend some dishes. The service can be quite slow sometimes, however I love how cozy this place feels and I love to come here with friends. Oh and the spiritual music is a massive plus for me.More
