I'm in love with this place! The food is absolutely amazing. I want to come back over and over again. I recommend ordering a bunch of different things and split them all. Amazing value

We used foursquare to find this place. Hard to find, 1 little door between some stores. And like many restaurants in Kiev, in a basement. Food was good, the bread we took (forgot the name.. it was with cheese) was delicious. The baran shashlik was...More

This restaurant is rather hard to find and you doubt you are in the right place until you enter the downstairs dining hall – where the lighting by the way has a kind of a mafia quality. But the food is good. The dolma I...More

This is a small Georgian restaurant in Podil, a historic part of Kyiv. It's located on a small and far from exciting street (Khoriva St). Otherwise it's great! Food is excellent. Adjarian khachapuri and khinkali is a must. Price-quality ratio is very very good. Good...More

The food is too good. I want to cry! Music is also nice in the background. There were family dinning together, but also good for a romantic dinner. 超级好吃。格鲁吉亚餐,点了一个包子和羊肉 BBQ, 有点在国内吃小笼包和羊肉串的赶脚。激动的就差亲亲服务员了。我太幸福了。

I think this is my new favorite restaurant in Kiev. I've been a fan of Georgian food since my first trip to Tbilisi and this place does it right. Include the live entertainment, the homemade wine, and you have yourself a great evening.

I love this place. Right across from Zhitniy Ryonk and down in the basement (ok, I don't love that part), but otherwise, the Georgian food is out of this world. The waitresses charming and attentive, the wine selection excellent (what would you expect?) and everything...More

I love this place. It is a break from Ukrainian stuff. Very simple Georgian feel to it. The family who ran it 10 years ago runs it today. We get the same stuff every time and every time it is tasty and consistent. The three...More

If you are a fan of authentic Georgian food, then this is the place to go! The place is small and a bit hard to find, but so worth it – the service is quick, and the food is absolutely amazing! Go for the pkhali, khachapuri...More
