“Beloved Uncle”
Review of Lyubimy Dyadya

Lyubimy Dyadya
Ranked #16 of 2,449 Restaurants in Kiev
Price range: US$3 - US$26
Description: Lyubimy Dyadya is a citizen of the world, his life is made of travels and discoveries. Every corner of his house represents a place he has been to or is going to visit. World-classics books, scooters, an old piano, graffiti and paintings by Kharkiv artists, a collection of clocks, a fireplace and designer furniture. It’s always more interesting than at home, but as cosy and warm at the same time. Our cuisine has a bright personality of Middle East. It’s the meeting place of hundreds of ingredients and combinations in our interpretation of classical dishes from Morocco, Israel, Iraq, Egypt, Turkey and Greece. You will see Lebanese tabbouleh, Israeli hummus, Moroccan shakshuka, bourekas, which have already become iconic, and Palestinian baba ganoush.

My Beloved Uncle (that is how Lyubimyi Dyadya is translated into English) is the mix of Middle East tastes and traditional Kyiv Jews hospitality. Very special place.

It was an amazing experience to eat in this restaurant. I went there few times during my last visit to Kiev and was really impressed with their food. As I really like to eat healthy and no dairy food they also have a lot of choices for that and plus they do have amazing desserts with no sugar and no milk. Hummus there is the best hummus I ever tried even I was many times in Israel. And a big plus for that place that they have an amazing coffee, what is really important for me. Stuff that works there is very friendly and professional. I highly recommend everyone this place. But better book a place there, because usually it was full when I went there.

Dear Anastacia,

This is a team-inspiring review, good enough to print out and hang on the wall, thanks for that ))
Our mission is to make the face of Kiev inviting, tasteful and creating a wish to come back. Breakfast is our must visit, yes, but next time you should definitely sit at the bar and have a cocktail. It is another story, believe us. We have stuff to surprise you with! See you!

Went because of its rating (first on Tripadviser in breakfasts), but were disappointed by prices. Nice and cozy, but unreasonably expensive even for Kyiv. There are much better places for breakfast and with more interesting wide choice.
