Food is great. Especially liked the dumplings with chicken and mushroom inside. The service is mixed. On the weekends, it was fantastic. Some of the best service we had in Kyiv. During the weekday (Monday), we had a completely different experience. We had decided to...come again because of the good service the first time, but the second time turned us off so bad, that we will go to another restaurant instead.More

If you’ve not tried Georgian food before, don’t start here, as it is infinitely better elsewhere. Eggplant rolls were greasy and resembled slugs frozen doing the twist, khachapuri were overcooked/microwaved; so the cheese was hardened, and the raw egg which is supposed to be mixed...in at the table with (what is supposed to be) the liquid cheese ended up cooked on top instead. Thereby defeating the purpose/uniqueness of the dish. The Khinkahli were good, we had 3 spiced mutton ones and 3 sulguni cheese ones. Mutton shashlik was overcooked, and tough. The crisps that came as part of the sides were the highlight of the dish. Staff were surly with a take it or leave it attitude. Oh and it’s one of those places (which personally annoys me) that includes a 10% service charge in the over priced bill whether you think it’s deserved (it isn’t) or not.More

I love Georgian food, so I was happy to stop for dinner at Khinkali today. Unfortunately, the experience was disappointing to say the least. The walnut-stuffed eggplant rolls were slimy and greasy, and probably the worst ones I’ve had. The khatchapuri seemed like it had...been cooked in the microwave and included overcooked cheese that had already hardened, with essentially a fried egg on top, that couldn’t be mixed in with the cheese to make it creamy and delicious: also the worst I’ve had. The mutton shashlik was dried out and hard, as well as fairly tasteless. As with everything else, one of the worst I have tried, as well as expensive at 395 UAH. Only the khinkali were decent, both the mutton and suluguni ones were not bad. Price for the above food plus a bottle of water was almost 1000 UAH. So overall, I would have to say the restaurant was expensive, the food was substandard, and the service was mediocre. I would definitely not go back.More

Last night, my coworker and I ate and had a great experience. This was actually my second time, bringing her here because of the Spicy soup they had. Like the first time I was there, all the food came timely and tasty. This time we...ate a variety of things, from cheesy egg bread to shishcabobs (sp?). The waitress was super helpful and friendly. Very welcoming. Highly recommended.More

Tips are included in the bill, which actually is illegal in Ukraine. Also it takes a while to get an order.

We were recommended Khinkali by our Ukranian tour guide, and I am glad she did. The restaurant is very quaint with an amazing feel and vibe, I'm guessing the decor is traditional rural Georgian. The food was excellent, I had veal tongue and mushroom pelmeni...or in Georgian Khinkali to start, followed by a veal kebab. My friends also enjoyed their choices and the food was washed down with a very good Gerogian red wine. The choice is fantastic and the prices are very reasonable. If you are visiting Kyiv and are interested in trying Georgain food in a restaurant with a great ambience then look no further.More
