Take the word of a Jewish Israeli, this place would not survive even a day in Tel Aviv. Terrible, terrible, terrible!!!!
We decided to give this place a go on a recent trip to Kiev based on recommendations from people we know - it was a mistake from the outset. The table itself was pretty dirty although It probably had been wiped the same day though much earlier. Place has been described as homely although I would say dingy was a... More
This is my kinda restaurant for when I go travelling. Something with an authentic flavour and dishes you wouldn't find easily at home. And without the staff being dressed up in mock authentic costumes necessarily. We went with a local friend, who guided us through the menu, but it is in English and the waitress suggested some wonderful dishes, so... More
Cimes serves a wide variety of delicious dishes. Try their duck with apples or escolar with spinach cream sauce. Both are just fabulous. The menu is in English as well as Russian / Ukranian. The atmosphere is casual, arty and amusing. The waitress was attentive and helped us choose dishes. Some of the best food we've eaten in any country.
Cimes (pronounced tsimes) is a Ukranian Jewish restaurant with Jewish motifs, run by Ukranian Jews, close to the Riviera Hotel. Many prefer to eat al fresco, but the downstairs dining room has real character, and is very comfortable. We had strong homemade strawberry liqueur, eggplant caviar with brown bread, chicken crests with latkes, and "sour-Sweet roast-meat “Jewish style”, which tasted... More
Went with another couple. They had the fish soup and asparagus and scallop soup, which they said were excellent. I had the octopus and spinach salad, which was very tasty. My wife had the whole Dorado, which was a nice presentation, but, tasted like it had come out of muddy water. Breads were good and the waiter spoke acceptable English.... More
Several dishes are made by traditional Jewish recipes. But the food is not kosher. The restaurant is, so to say, Jewish by atmosphere. The food is tasty, average prices, live music sometimes, friendly and qualified staff. My personal advice - order Forshmak and skip gefilte fish.
Even if your understanding of Cyrillic script is non-existent, finding Tzimmes should not be a problem. It is just off the main drag through Podil that leads from the Poshtova Ploscha Metro to the main square, and at the entrance sits a wooden life-size statue of a man with a hook nose and a beard, counting money. Over the sign... More
This restaurant features Jewish (mostly Ashkenazi) cuisine. It is moderately priced (for Kiev maybe slightly on the expensive side) and the food is O.K. The main plus is the artistic rendering of the Jewish theme in everything from wall painting to the menu design. A statue of a Jewish merchant in front of the property is hilarious (http://www.restoran.ua/storage/images/restoran/kiev/news/otkrytie-letnih-ploshchadok/2010-04-27-cimes/otkrytie-letnej-ploschadki-restorana-cimes/616174-1-rus-RU/Otkrytie-letnej-ploschadki-restorana-Cimes_full.jpg).

We were just looking for a place to have lunch, and didn't know this was a jewish restaurant until we entered. But as we entered we immediately realised this since the walls were decorated with texts in Hebrew and the music was Israeli. The interior was very nice and pleasant, as were the smiling waitresses. I chose one of their... More
