Description: San Tori opens the door to Asia. It is the best japanese and thai restaurant in Kiev. For 17 years the restaurant "San Tori" has gained a reputation of the best Asian restaurant in the Ukrainian capital. It generously gives its visitors the unique pleasure of Thai and Japanese cuisine. The abundance of culinary delights in the menu, a huge selection of drinks, a colorful cozy interior makes visitors come back here again and again. The restaurant is not accidentally called "San Tori", it means "The Firebird". One of the principles of the restaurant is to warm the visitors with a cozy atmosphere, beauty, style and serving of meals. This extravaganza is comparable with the flight of the Firebird. Thanks to the creativity of the chefs from Thailand and Japan the menu presents the latest delights of Thai and Japanese cuisine alongside with traditional dishes, already famous among connoisseurs of Kiev. All dishes are prepared in compliance with the original recipes, fresh ingredients and spices. Info for companies: San Tori Restaurant makes a 20% discount when serving banquets (not less than 10 persons). For detailed information ask restaurant managers.

“Best Asian Food in Kiev”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2009

Santori has been one of the first Asian restaurants in Kiev - and that it's still around tells something about their food quality.

Last week I've visited Santori with some friends.

The 12 piece "Luxury" Shushi setting is the best Sushi I every had in Kiev. And at 317 Grivna (approx. € 25.00) minus 12% discount (if you have the discount card) it's certainly not too epensive. A friend of mine had the "Santori" beef with asperagus which looked very tasty as well. I also had a clear Miso soup which was hat and not made from concentrade.

Okay, the location of Santori isn't down-town but down in Podol but you can reach it without problems.

Setting of the place (after renovation) is very nice. Also it offers Teppanyaki.

We'll be there more often again!
