“Ukrainian Borscht”
Reviewed December 27, 2013

I was greeted by friendly staff and immediately felt comfortable and welcomed. I was looking for authentic Ukrainian cuisine and I found it. I had the borscht and it was fantastic. I liked it so much that it was a must that I returned for more before I left Kyiv. When I return to Kyiv, I will try other items on the menu. Highly recommend this restaurant.

“A commendable organic experience”
Reviewed October 26, 2013

Kult Ra, 4 Volodymyrska St , offered an authentic Ukrainian setting. Many interesting curious dotted around, someone had spent considerable effort creating the charm.

Canape pigs fat with pickle, a delicacy I suggest might be worth trying once.

Organic “shardonee” very worthy, tempting to go for seconds, although the beverage might have been improved if served chilled.

Main course chicken roll with chopped tomatoes and pickles, deceptively filling.
The final bill was a bit higher than I had expected due to a few glasses of the wine.
I would visit again, but I managed to exceed the upper price range limit suggested here.

“Probably the only Organic restaurant in Kiev. Ahead of its time!”
Reviewed October 13, 2013 via mobile

If you are into eating organic, good quality, Ukrainian food, I would highly recommend this place. It has a kind of hippie feel, as I would expect with a place specializing in organic food. The staff were very accommodating. My wife has Celiac disease and can't eat gluten, and they made sure her meal was safe. I had pork chops and grilled veggies, and washed it down with some hemp beer (part of the "hippie feel" I was talking about) and it was delicious. They had excellent live music while we were there as well. My only complaint was that it was a bit expensive, but good quality, organic food, doesn't usually come cheap!

“Charismatic place”
Reviewed October 9, 2013 via mobile

The Kult Ra restaurant is very stylish and cozy. Been there three times. They have really good pastry, varenyky, appetizers and drinks. Steaks and fish aren't so good though.
