“Quick, cheap and satisfying Ukrainian food”
Reviewed 20 June 2011

My favourite place to get lunch when I was working in Pobedi and wanted something cheap was the Domashnia Kuchnia there. You could get three courses and a drink for no more than a couple of euros, and it's a good way to sample a bit of Ukrainian food. It's obviously not as good as real Ukrainian home cooking, but it's so quick and easy with the self-service style. They always have decent enough borscht on offer... remember to skip the garlic on your Pampushki if you don't want to smell the whole day! Most popular with locals, but a good place for tourists on a budget to sample some Ukrainian food.

“tasty, safe, cheap”
Reviewed 26 December 2010

One of several Kyiv fast-food chains (i prefer "Dva gusya" most)) with tasty and cheap food (the choise is really wide!).
I visited "Domashnya kukhnya" lots of times and found it just great for a limited budget. Average price for dinner per one person (~fresh salad, meat, glass of beer + tea or coffee with some dessert) can be 60-65 UAH (~8 USD).

“Best Value and authentic Ukrainian food”
Reviewed 6 May 2008

For anyone in Kiev who wants wholesome tasty Ukrainian food at a reasonable price I can recommend this place.. I know Kiev well and although there are now plenty of good places to eat I still find myself coming back to this spot. It has a good atmosphere, clean quaint decor and mostly frequented by locals.
Format is as a self service cafeteria.. So you get a tray, pick your dishes (they weigh the portions) and you slowly move forward in one of several seemingly informal queues (best not to go when it's peak office lunch hour).
Besides tea, coffee, deserts, they are also licensed .. Here you can buy a half litre of Beer at a reasonable price. Also there is an excellent little bar next door called Rumichnaya run by the same people..
It's easy enough to find.. At the Bessarabska Rynok (Market)end of Kreshatik (the main street in Kiev) you will find the large circular market building (worth a look inside in itself). If you walk around the outside of this building (to the opposite side of Kreshatik) you will see a road branching off and going up the steep hill. To the left is TGI Fridays (if you want same as home) ,keeping the circular Rynok on your right, look across the road on the corner is the Ukrainian Kitchen.
Whilst you’re here, you can visit the market, see Arena city (Victor Pinchuk gallery & few swanky clubs), go shopping in Up market mandarin Plaza (which has an excellent supermarket in the basement) .Also at this end of kreshatik there are a couple of internet cafes (also there are cafes with free wifi), ATMs, metrograd underground shopping (worth a look) and much other good stuff such as the statue of Lenin at the bottom of Shevshenko Ulitsa :)
There aren’t many places in the world where you can grab a good cheap eat +drink, go clubbing, buy a hideous Leopard skin sofa (lots of kitsch in metrograd) , get fresh vegetables, buy a luxury car and all within 100m!
