This was a great meal. I loved the vibe and ambiance of the restaurant. Excellent service and menu was easy to understand. I've been to Thailand many times and the food was on point. The fish cakes were fantastic! I was a little disappointed in the beef salad, but I added some heat and it was good.

I went there with a colleague for lunch last week, because of the proximity of this place to us both. And was pleasantly surprised. In short, this is one of the best asian restaurants in town, a real competition to Grill Asia at the Hyatt, which I view as top asian restaurant in town. The menu was very extensive, staff... More

Very expensive (used to be the most expensive restaurant in Kiev) but very good food. Intimate atmosphere, attentive staff. Three big rooms depending on type of food you would like - Thai, Chinese, Japanese. Live fish tanks.

This not very big restaurant serving Asian cuisine prepared by one Japanese and one Thai chef is situated in Podol - one of the central parts of Kyiv. It used to be a very luxury venue, but even now though the interior is not so special anymore - the food quality compensates it and makes San Tori worth a visit.... More

Have been at this restaurant. The food test is great, Thai chilly sauce was simply amazing like in Thailand. Price is pretty high but if you really want to have Thai test we recommend to visit here. Not far from Krishyatik street.

We had not only excellent Thai food,but were also plesed about the pleasant athmosphere. Quality price relationshipis is very good. They have also a good choice of affordable and good producer wines. I must admit, I am a Burgundy wine Lover. I normally always miss a good wine iàn Asian restaurants. VERY recommendable place. We will be back. :)))

I have been to San Tori this evening. This place used to be a rather upscale location in the past. When we arrived at our table - first impression was the smell. Somehow it had the smell of old fat. We ordered Tom Yam Soup, Thai-starters, a pepper-steak and Thai-style-chicken. All dishes should have been hot/spicy. Also I ordered a... More

San Tori has great Thai food during the week (chef off on sunday and back up chef is terrible) but it has also probably the best Teppaniaki in town (and his Japanese chef works on saturday). Great environment, roomy teppaniaki sits 8 to 10, fresh ingredients. I had better teppaniakis of course, so I give it a 4 star but... More

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.
