About Taras Bulba

“Korchma Taras Bulba” is an international Ukrainian cuisine restaurant chain founded by Yury Beloyvan on March 25, 1999, in Moscow, Russia. The first restaurant was opened at 30/7 Petrovka Street and was thought to be the only one. The restaurant became so popular and loved that in the next 13 years 16 other locations opened in Moscow, and one in Kiev and now in New York! All dishes served in Korchma are of authentic Ukrainian cuisine, prepared with the exact recipe that was handed down for centuries from generation to generation, and now from our grandparents to our grandchildren. Each restaurant has a unique interior design that will make you feel like you were brought back a hundred years to a cozy Ukrainian home.

I visited on a week night and arrived a little after 6 with a reservation. It took them 15 minutes just to bring water and take my drink order, and then I had to wait quite a long time for the drink. They seemed to only have 2 wait staff, and 1 was tied up with a large party. The people next to me had been waiting a long time for their food. When the food did arrive, they did not get my side dish correct, and I had to wait a bit longer to fix it. The food was just ok - nothing special. Definitely will not recommend.

I love Ukrainian & Russian food and Taras Bulba is a good one. However, this was my 4th visit and almost half of menu was not available. Kiev Chicken was very dry and service was much slower than before. Prices are way expensive for this class of restaurant they should drop each item at least $2-3 such as $15/16 for a small plate Vereniki is too much. It is almost a main plate price for similar restaurants.

So glad I found this place . My Ukrainian friend was visiting from Portland so I wanted to treat her with a taste from her country. We settled in and were immediately greeted by our friendly hostess. Upon entering you feel like you are being invited into someone's home. The infused vodka was amazing. We ordered the most traditional dishes and were immediately transported into grandmas kitchen. The food from the borscht to the traditional dumplings with sour cream were to die for. Anything they brought out we devoured. I recommend you try this place at least once and you will be hooked on this cuisine. Overall I was pleased with the authenticity of the flavors and the friendly staff.

We were happy to find this lovely place. The prices are a bit steep, but that may reflect Soho rents. Everything we ordered was delicious, authentic and beautifully presented. And the staff is very pleasant, knowing and helpful. Looking forward to returning.

Very disappointing food. Poor quality ingredients, no flavor. Chicken Kiev looked like the real thing, but had no flavor, neither the chicken nor the butter inside (that's what they said it was). Chicken Kebab was inedible remnants of a chicken.

This is a great Ukranian/Russian cuisine. Very tasty! As a native Russian I enjoy coming here to eat my national food. Great decor! I would recommend to anyone who is interested to try Ukrainian/Russian food. Don't be scared of unusual items on the menu! :) Try them all!

I was looking forward to going to Taras Bulba for a good Ukranian Meal and I had several things on the menu that I wanted to try. We got there right at 12 for lunch when it opened. However, when I tried to order the Stroganofff I was told that "we had a busy night last night, we're out."

This seems sort of unexcusable as that is usually one of the most common and most popular dishes at a restaurant like this. I get it if it's the end of the night and you sold out, but it was the start of the service, you should have had time to replenish your supplies.

Then I went with my backup order and asked for the veal stew, only to be told that they were sold out of that too!

I was left floundering and ended up ordering stuff that I didn't even really want. I got the borscht and the dumplings. The borscht was good. The dumplings also were tasty but the portion was pretty skimpy for 15 bucks.

All in all, a disappointing experience and I don't think I'll be coming back to this restaurant.

Not being an expert in Ukrainian cuisines, Taras Bulba was a great place to experience it. The staff all in traditional attire, the atmosphere definitely transported me out of NYC. The potato pancakes are great! Portions are great for sharing. My husband and I went over brunch, it was quiet, spacious, great for families or with friends. The service is great, young staff and attentive.

Recommended for Ukrainian food. Since my grandmother was from Ukraine, I wanted to compare to her recipes. All food was EXCELLENT, and Max (our waiter) was very helpful in selecting choices and customs of the food. Borscht tasted just like Grandma's, so I know I'm preparing the recipe justice.
Can't wait to go back!

Food was excellent and authentic. Possibly the best shuba I've ever had. Fried potato with sour cream also excellent, dumplings were good. However way too pricey. We only ordered 1 alcoholic drink and two regular beverages and the total came out to so much.

We arrived very early for our reservation and were graciously received. They turned the music down a bit and reseated us so that we wouldn't be under the speaker. Of course, then we were beside the espresso machine, and the music volume did inch back up. The food was very good, even though we had to ask about our entrees, which took an extraordinarily long time. Of course, that might have had to do with our being so early. The servers were all very nice and helpful in explaining menu items.

Of the very few really good places to get authentic Eastern European fare in New York, this fairly recent arrival to the city is hands down the best and most refreshing alternative to the somewhat tired and over-Americanized spots in Little Ukraine over in the East Village. If you've got a hankering for some dumplings, go for the Vareniki Sampler; the Beef Tongue just might remind your Ukrainian friend of her mother's kitchen; and the Olivier salad may transport you to a picnic on the green banks of the Dniester. And all of this just in case the traditional country decor and costumed staff haven't yet convinced you to accept one more shot of infused vodka for the road.
