Description: "CARAVAN" - a restaurant with many years of impeccable reputation for a place of delicious oriental cuisine. All who have visited us at least once, change their view of the cuisine of the region once and for all. Five types of pilaf, manti, khinkali, shurpa and lagman, kebabs and hummus, dolma and couscous, chebureks and gazlem, lamb on spit, dishes cooked in Indian tandoori grill - only reading the menu of the restaurant Caravan causes emotional excitement. The East is not only delicate, but also delicious. The atmosphere of the restaurant is the mesmerizing smoke of the hookah, the crackling of the brazier, belly dancing, tea cups of fragrant tea, Persian carpets and Moroccan tiles - what we call "head in the clouds", nirvana and complete harmony with the world. The restaurant regularly hosts festivals of seasonal products and operates a halal menu - dishes prepared in accordance with the principles of Muslim cuisine from quality, healthy products. The caravan is an ideal place

Stopped by here for a lunch meeting and was very pleasantly surprised. The decor is very nice and welcoming. The food was very good. The chicken I had was very well-cooked and my colleagues seemed to enjoy their dishes too. Although we didn't spend a lot of time there, seems to be the kind of place where you can enjoy a long leisurely meal with friends.

Hands down the best restaurant visited on my trip to Kiev. Each dish was well made, reasonably priced (mostly) and delicious. The wine and drinks selection was also good, especially the available white wines and homemade lemonade.

The staff is friendly and attentive, even though it took a bit of time for us (English and American) to get our sentences across (our Ukrainian isn't really up to scratch ha). Despite that, the night was brilliant. Meal for two with drinks came to about 900uah, a great price considering the quality of the food. Would really recommend.

The ox tail soup is a must as is the ox tail main (tried across two separate visits ;)).

The main purpose for the business lunch is to have your lunch as quick as possible and return back to work. They have served a simple soft drink after 15 minutes. After asking olive oil for the salad, it took almost 10 minutes to bring it. It took almost 30 minutes to bring main meal. By the way, they brought so many foods to the next table which shall take so much time to be prepared. We left the restaurant without having the main meal. The most surprising issue is that while I was talking with the waitress, the manager (later I understood that she is the manager) was there and she did not tell anything! I will not go again and will not recommend to my friends and do not recommend to you, too.

Nice Decor
Service was fine. The food was average and expensive.
You should check your bill in the end of the meal because sometimes they "accidentally" add dishes....
