This restaurant is permanently closed. “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.

Probably the most authentic Ukrainian cuisine I found in the city. They have an extensive choice of vodka shots. Service is attentive and prices are moderate.
