You're reading: Food Critic: Where to go for Chinese food in Kyiv
Popular
on social media

As a multicultural city, Kyiv offers restaurants of all kinds of cuisines, including Chinese restaurants. Two that stand out are are Kitaisky Privet (Chinese Hello) and Han Yuan.

Kitaisky Privet sits at the bottom of Afanasyev Yar on Ivana Franka Street, surrounded by lush vegetation and adorned with bamboo sprouts that make the restaurant seem Southeast Asian on a muggy May day.

The restaurant opened in August. Chinese characters written in neon decorate the interior as do Russian-language signs mimicking the mistakes of Chinese native speakers.
One sign in the bathroom informs guests, referred to as “dear China friend,” that “paper hand towel and other material into toilet throw do not!” while the napkins have “wipe face so sauce no flow” printed on them.
