I had visited another branch of this chain 5 years ago and like the food. It seems, however, that quality has gone down the hill. As to be expected, traditional borshtsh was fine, but the fish with grilled vegetables thereafter really disappointing - heavy and tasteless. You will get food of a similar quality and many of those eateries charging have the price.
The most disappointing part was the service. Once the anyway indifferent waitress had made out that I am no native Russian - though I manage to communicate in Russian pretty well - I was treated like an untouchable, given the feeling that the quicker I leave the better. Which I did, certainly not to try this chain again.

Good restaurant for lunch or dinner service is a little slow, and prices are higher than expected.

Waitress speak English to a limited degree and were able to assist.

Tasty! Good traditional decorations, friendly staff, and 24h open! What else could you wish for? We were looking for a place to eat early in the morning and this was the finding.

For a chain of restaurants, Taras Bulba does a splendid job. The decor is very intimate, the service smiling and the quality of food is there. They have a menu in English if you are struggling with the language. We tried various things and nothing disappointed. The price range is very reasonable and I would recommend the restart, even for families with children.

This is a very quirky & traditional restaurant, off the beat & track, recommended to us by one of our hotel staff.

The décor is authentic and the staff are dressed in traditional costume.

The food and portions sizes are very good and I thought it was very good value for money.

This restaurant offers traditional home cooked food and was full of local diners, which is always a good sign, indicating that the food will be good.
Would have loved to have gone back for Dinner.
