I only visit Shemoikhede Genaysvale" when I'm really hungry, because their khinkali is maybe one of the best in town . But one must be very patient because the service is awful, waitresses are rood and unpolite. One time we ordered 2portions of fries and one Lobiani, waitress came after about 30minutes with two Lobiani and NO fries.

There are actually two of these restaurants in Tbilisi. The one I went to is not in the old town but close to Marjanishvili metro station. It is fitted out with cobbled floors and decor to make you feel you are in a Georgian village. Quite nice, the staff were relatively helpful. You can see the food being cooked on... More

It is nice and cozy place and the price is very reasonable. We have been there for lunch and had khinkhali and khachaphuri which are traditional georgian foods. They have also nice georgian wines. The service was fast and the waitresses were ok. Atmosphere which i liked best really attracting to tourists. The location is very convenient close to the... More

Having travelled all around the country,i tried to taste khinkhali in every particular region.My final result is that Shemoikhede Genatsvale,is the place to get started with the Georgian tastes.Khinkhali were very very good,though a little bit spicy for some.Khachapuri was also great.And the kebab,the best i've eaten throughout the country.The rest of the meat plates were quite average. The decoration... More

Good food, not expensive, in the central old town position, good service. Nice wine, I recommend. They could do something more to make better atmosphere.

Great location near the old town and I liked the way the restaurant is decorated. The food was good and well prepared, mind you they don't give you large portions. Smoke filled and the service was slow and really unfriendly. I ordered a second drink that never arrived. I tried to order more food and was repeatedly ignored. All in... More

One of the best places I had Georgian food... I was there for lunch so the atmosphere might have been more quiet than in the evening.

Nowhere else in Georgia did we manage to leave the table feeling hungry, but here. They charge normal prices (40GEL for two) for meager portions. After finishing our main courses, I had to ask for a third dish to consider it an okay dinner. Prep time is awfully long, quality is so-so, the place probably lowered its standards since coming...

Hotel staff advised to visit that place, since they serve good Georgian food. First of all we faced with awful service. Waitress was laconic and seems was not in a mood of speaking and helping with menu. I expected to see a big choice of dishes in menu, but there wasn't much to choose from, taking in consideration that I... More
