New “Baluvana Galya” on Antonovycha street is the second restaurant of the brand – the first one is located near Klovska subway station. The dining spot has been founded by the well-known restauranteur Igor Sukhomlyn, who owns 17 restaurants in Kyiv, Lviv, Cherkassy, Chernigiv and Zhytomyr. Apart from “Baluvana Galya”, the list of his restaurants includes “Chashka”, “Mimosa Brooklyn Pizza”, “Buba”, “Velurov” and “Sharlotka”.


Though the restaurant offers classic Ukrainian dishes, the interior keeps to the modern style. Actually, even the motto of “Baluvana Galya” sounds like “Classic Ukrainian cuisine from different regions in the modern interior”. This is what differs “Baluvana Galya” from other Ukrainian cuisine restaurants – instead of traditional Ukrainian ornaments and folk motifs, here you will see modern decor elements and lamps, simple wooden furniture and hall designed in gray, white & red colors.
