Ayva Lounge & Grill on Pechersk in Kyiv

One more Turkish restaurant has appeared in the center of Kyiv — just like in the traditional fine dining spots, guests are warmly welcomed to enjoy the lively vibe, delicious spicy meals, hookah and live Turkish music.

The restaurant's chef, Hasan Atesh, has more than 10 years of experience in his homeland Turkey, as well as the Netherlands and Egypt. Now Atesh dedicates his attention to Kyiv and even prepares most of the menu himself.

According to the classics of Turkish cuisine, bread and meat are equally important parts of the diet. Baked goods are present in breakfast options, as well as in light snacks. One of the place's specials is so-called "Turkish pizza": pide, a juicy boat-shaped dish with meat, cheese and vegetables, and Lahmajoun, a thin piece of dough sprinkled with minced meat, herbs and spices.
Classical meat dishes are present on the menu in a separate section. A hot pick that is also a great choice for the first-timers is Alinazik kebab - marinated grilled mutton with yogurt with baked eggplant, served with bread. Naturally, the famous Turkish delights from baklava with pistachios to semolina halva with pine nuts and ice cream didn't escape the chef's attention as well.

The dishes go well with a traditional Middle Eastern beverage Ayran, which tastes best in summer and helps to dilute the spice. An open-air terrace is available for those who want to enjoy hookah and fresh summer breeze.
