We had the traditional georgian supra with many courses and wine. The food was awesome. White wine made a nice match with desserts. It was fun.

This was a gem of a find. S beautiful warm courtyard awaits with great food. If you are over trying the traditional Finnish foods this is definitely a great choice. Big meals great for sharing. Definitely have the dumplings. The restaurant owners hospitality was exceptional.

This was our first introduction to Georgian cuisine and we couldn’t have had a nicer evening. The staff were all very friendly, taking time to walk us through the menu, and seating in the inner courtyard area felt more comfortable and casual than the more...formal front dining room. We ordered the Supra platter for two and it was a huge amount of food for the two of us. (We really didn’t need the tomato and cucumber salad my wife ordered as a side.) The platter allowed us to sample a lot of different things, but half the dishes were cheese-forward, so be aware if someone has issues with dairy. The cheese bread was delicious, but my favorite was the sausage kebabs. The excellent Georgian wines were very helpful for cutting through the heavier dishes. Save room for the dessert that comes with the platter. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for a nice meal with family, friends or for business.More

Fantastic food, great service. Fine local wines that I especially enjoyed along the food. I do recommend the khatsapuri, it is among the best i've tasted.

Such a friendly relaxing atmosphere to dine in. Incredible food and service. Perfect food for sharing with others, I loved all the sauces and the flavours from each dish. Even gave us tips on how to eat some dishes. You’ll never leave hungry

We had the good fortune of being invited by a person who has considerable experience of Georgian food and wine. He handled the orders, and in came a whole row of delicious dishes. My favorite was the eggplants stuffed with walnut paste. There was also...a good pork dish, and the red wine made for a nice complement. Service was swift, informal and friendly.More

Loved the experience at Rioni; amazingly delicious food, happy people all around and rush-free atmosphere. Enjoyed the night so much that hours just flew by! If you'd like to experience authentic Georgian atmosphere in Helsinki you really need to check this place out. All the...staff and the owners were super nice and welcoming, was just the perfect evening. Thank you once again Rioni!More

Picture this: a table full of dishes, each looking more delicious than the other - barbeque, hearthy sauces, salads, bread straight from the oven with melted cheese and egg in the middle - and everything topped with fresh and juicy pomegrenade seeds. It’s the kind...of food that’s perfect to share with friends and family, just the way they do in Georgia (as the waiters told us they do - most of them were georgians). Highly recommend bringing comfy loose clothes as you will not want to stop eating! :)More

I love this restaurant and it’s great for a night out with friends as Georgian food culture is based on sharing. Really tasty food, great service and fab atmosphere, with a central location. I especially liked the bbq stuff combined with some veggie dishes and...of course the cheese bread. I was worried that would be too heavy for a hot summers day but there are so many things to choose from and also great salad based dishes. Will definitely be coming back.More

Cozy and handsome restaurant with competent service. We had the original supra for four people. All appetizers and especially the cheese bread were tasty and got eaten quite fast. Main courses were rich with different flavors, especially garlic sour cream sauce in chicken stew. Everything...was delicious and we got to try many combinations. Excellent Feel Good Food! Tip: do not eat up too much appetizers, or you can't eat all main courses...More
