Didn't really see the attraction that makes this place hyped by folks who took me there. It was dark and hard to see what I was eating, and all the smoke from hookahs around me made it hard to relax.

We were tourists, dressed in nice clothes, and I was wearing white-olive FILA sneakers. The guard on the entrance said something like: "in these shoes? no way." and we didn't even had a chance to enter this "bar". too much judging for this fake Buddah!

Its atmosphere is nice. Kalyan is well made. You can find more options in menu. It is in popular location in city center.

I went with my girlfriend for dinner as I enjoyed other locations of Buddha Bar in other cities. We were so disappointed. 1. They asked for USD 40 minimum spending per person, which I guess makes commercial sense since people would leave otherwise after the first drink/bite 2. The cocktails are watered down and tasteless. 3. The place was half... More

Went for a special occasion. Service was very poor. Staff were inattentive, the food was extremely slow in coming, and was nothing special. Soup came without a spoon, we didn't get items we ordered, had to flag staff down for service. Tiger Bills down the street has Asian food that is just as good at a fraction of the cost.... More

I have been in Buddha bar in a friday of December 2016 , we had to wait around 30 mins before find a table. Nice location, music and atmosphere. We ordered sushi and wine but about this the quality was not so good. The price for a table its a little expensive for Kiev standards. Afterall its a nice place

Good for business wind-downs, they have a lot of tables with couches and semi private areas. The music volume allows you to talk and communicate. Drinks are reasonably priced, they have some sushi which is EU/US prices, OK quality. The hookers seem high end (can I say that?), they add to the atmosphere.

Very strange and interesting place with its unique atmosphere. I enjoyed the food so much, especially the desert. The lady with saxophone was marvelous ;)

I didn't actually understand this interior. Looks more like some night club with all those lights and not as restaurant. Service was OK but prices to expensive for what you get.
