Staff were very friendly and the service was very good. I had lunch there and their menu with a lot choices including asian dishes. Shalena Mama is next to Kiev Philology Institut and very close to Taras Shevchenko Park. I will definitely go there again, if I pass it next time.

Food was not impressive , the only vegan option - fries, that weren't good. Cake with cherries - strange burnt mix of cake and pancake. Waiter wasn't really friendly.i liked interior, that reminds of American cafes and music was also nice.

Centrally but separatedly located, Shalena Mama is small bar-restaurant. Staff is friendly, property is clean and has smoker-friendly veranda opposite to exit. Good and tasty snacks and dishes to beer (even if this not indicated in menu directly). Good chicken wings. Rock music.

Thank Borys B
