Description: Korchma "Taras Bulba" - is an atmospheric interior and delicious national cuisine. The interior of the tavern is the atmosphere of a Ukrainian house with a huge oven, they laid brick and carefully whitewashed, homespun doormat, embroidered tablecloths, utensils and old photographs. Add a vibrance national costumes worn by the waiters. If you read once books N. In. Gogol, when he came to the tavern, fully feel like visiting your favorite character. From the variety of the menu dazzled. If you can't eat, but the desire to try all the dishes you have not left, order a takeaway. The first is to try the dumplings, eat them, dipped in sour cream, as did the famous character from the book Gogol. Sweet berries, poppy seeds, cabbage, potatoes with mushrooms, cottage cheese, salmon with dill, meat is all the toppings. If you can not decide, then order cannon sweet dumplings, a great opportunity to try almost everything at once. The bread here is baked themselves, moreover, even the flour of its own production, making cakes tavern like this fragrant and beautiful. From our own farm economy "the Cossack" bring to the tavern fresh butter, thick cream, cottage cheese, honey. Only these natural products are used in the dishes, they can also be ordered to your table. In the tavern well come to fine dining, impress guests while walking, are comfortable to spend time as a family, with friends. If you want to organize an unusual, themed party, even a wedding, even a kid's birthday party, you'll be very happy.

The restaurant is very international, having several languages, and every Russian I spoke with recommended coming here.

However, the food is awful. This may be a reflection on Russian food or on Taras Bulba; I am not sure, but the end product is terrible. Unlike other restaurants in Russia the portions are also huge. Bad food in large portions makes for a bad combination.

Would not go again, and would not recommend. Stay away. Service, as in all of Moscow is terrible.

Someone recommended this place to us, and I'm so glad we went! Although I never ate Ukrainian food, all the dishes we ate here were very tasty! The service was a little bit slow, but the place was completely full as it was a Saturday night so we did expect that! The atmosphere was amazing, all the people working in the restaurant were wearing authentic Ukrainian costumes, there was also a folk band playing which made us feel like we were in Ukraine. Most of the stuff we dealt with, spoke some English so was quite easy to communicate. I definitely recommend this place!!

It's hard to get through without some recommendations if you have never been to Ukraine or tried their food, but everything seemed authentic, including their costumes, live folk music, and decorations.

I definitely recommend this place to foreigners like me.
