Good beer house. Not more, not less. Expensive one, but beer is nice and atmosphere is good. Do not expect to be the delishes restaurant from this place :) Just good place to relax with the friends and to drink some beer.

Bad beer. Overpriced for cuisine and beer. There are other more pleasant places in Kiev compare to Duma. Not reccomend.

Just like most other places in Ukraine they serve great beer (brewed right there), but the service is terrible. I went there a few times. Food was always medium quality at best and the service was always bad. Last time there we sat in the non-smoking section, because we don't smoke! When the check came they charged us for a pack of cigarettes. It took 45 minutes (15 of which were after they closed) to remove it from our check! Management got involved. It still took a ridiculous amount of time! When asked if I can pay for everything else and leave the answer was NO! They always screw something up while serving. Not going back!

This is a great place to go in Kyiv if you are looking for a microbrewery/restaurant.

The service is alright but not great. We had one waiter for our whole entire section and when it got busy we didn't see him at all till we called him over.

The chef(s) obviously loves what they do and it shows. The food is exceptional, and although I just want great tasting food when I go out, it was nice to see that the chef even took time to plate the food with great care (not only was it good, it was visually appealing as well).

As for the beer...it's good, but I can't say that it's great. If your use to your traditional beers, then I'm sure you will find something that you love here. For me I'm use to all the crazy styles/types of beer that we get in Denver, CO with the huge craft beer scene that is there. So the beers although good, just seem to be the same old. No wow factor so to speak...

I was most impressed with the Amber, if you like a hoppy beer this one is your best bet. I haven't found many beers in Kyiv that are as hoppy as this one. I've never even seen an IPA on tap or in a bottle anywhere. Then again, not a style I really like so maybe the reason as I don't really look out for it.

Will I be returning...yes. Would I suggest it to someone else...yes.
