We had never eaten Georgian food before visiting here, and it is absolutely amazing. As we had no idea what we should order, the waitress (who spoke excellent English) made some suggestions for us. Everything she suggested was delicious, and she helped us order the...exact right amount of food. Now I cannot wait to eat more Georgian food!More

Georgian heart in the centre of Kyiv. The best khachapuri i tried ever. Very brave experiments with georgian kitchen to be loved for by european people. Georgian wines here are exceptional (I tried most of them). If u want to have rest with ur soul...or to be served with fluent English - u should definitely visit Mama Gochi.More

On a lovely Friday evening, passed by this restaurant with our 4 month old baby (covered in a pram),noted the good reviews therefore decided to give this restaurant a chance. Waited 10 minutes until we found a table that was suitably distant from the next...table and acceptable in COVID-19 pandemic times. Just to remind the reader there is over 1100 COVID-19 patients being diagnosed every day and this is coming from a health person who knows the statistics. A waitress came up to us, within a half a metre to take our order, she had a mask covering her mouth but not covering her nose. We POLITELY asked her "could you please cover your mask over your nose" ie wear the mask correctly… She looked at us as if we came from another planet…She looked at us not quite believing / understanding so we asked her and demonstrated to her, could she please place the mask over her nose... she simply replied "really"?....and said no! We indicated that we had a four month old baby next to us.... She didn’t like this and promptly left the table offended and did not return. After five minutes we simply got up and left given that she completely ruined our appetite at this particular restaurant. No support was forthcoming from the management... This restaurant is a microcosm of kiev citizens, simply having a Trumpian attitude of if you wish hard enough for a global pandemic to go away it will go away without taking any precautions, providing any assistance to your fellow citizen, simply believing that the imposition of wearing a mask correctly is not reasonable. I personally would not recommend anyone going to this restaurant if they value their health and do not want to risk contracting COVID-19 and potentially spreading it to another 20 people and potentially causing great harm. I can only submise that the owner, the manager and the waitress simply do not care for their patrons and feel profit is more important than health. If they are prepared to expose their guests to potential viruses what is the attitude of staff towards safe food preparation? We moved on to find a restaurant that cared for our health and safety. Forever searching for positive healthy restaurant staff who care for their patrons.... Hard to find sadly!More

I visit Kyiv multiple times a year and somehow always find myself at Mama Gochi . The atmosphere and service is top notch and the food delightful . The khachapuri is alway a win for me (particularly the new addition with prosciutto, spinach and honey...) as was the khinkali . Can’t go wrong with just about anything you order . Also our server Demyd was incredibly attentive and knowledgeable.More

We have been to the mamma Gogi in Kiew not far from the maidanplace in a very nice location. We had a typical lunch with pasta and meat/kebab. The price was hot the service was good but the food was mediocre. Careful when you order...meat as it is written in grams and after the barbecue it is probably only a fraction of its actual weight. The quality of the meat is not equivalent to its price.More

We had takeaway in this restaurant, so I cannot review the full service. HOWEVER, the food was amazing and when we arrived to pickup the order it was not yet ready, so the waitress offered us a complimentary homemade cider while we were waiting. This...was the best cider I ever had.More

We really enjoyed dinner here. We didn't know any of the dishes and the staff were really helpful. The things we chose were all delicious plus good beer and complimentary cocktail with candyfloss. We now want more Georgian food.
