We found this restaurant quite by chance near the Harmony Atlas Hotel. The food is home made Georgian cooking and the owner was very helpful with the ordering process. It is a change from the normal Israeli cuisine and I would recommend it. Please. Ite, however, that it is not a kosher restaurant.

Been a couple of times with a friends. Great Georgian food and vine, very tasty. Staff was friendly and helpful, but the service was a little bit slow. Fried chicken is recommended.

This is a very authentic Georgian restaurant in the charming alleys of the Nachlat Shiv'a area. Very tasy but heavy food.Nothing for the dieting or health concious, but if you decide to forget tomorrow, the food is very interesting and very very tasty. Try the Hachpouri, Hinkali and the various meat dishes. Service by the owner was direct with patience... More

Very good traditional Georgian food, Khachapuri's, Khinkalis, kebobs, salads, all very tasty. The only problem is that food so good you can't stop eating... House wine is fine too, almost the same as you find in Georgia...

This traditional Georgian place is very special. Located near the famous hooka bar, in the warren of streets called Nahalat Shiva, it is centrally located. Run by a friendly woman the menu has a good selection of Georgian food. The Chiburek and Kachapulis are all wonderful. The Mushroom Julian is a true treat. Portions are decent but the food is...

We had a nice meal, trying a couple of starters + full meal. The traditional food was excellent! Tasty meats and lovely extras. We got really full; the starters are quite big :)
