Description: "A Georgian without a guest is not a Georgian!" this is what considered in a hospitable Khinkali dukhan (tavern). Local customs will impress you with their generosity, extent and amiability, and our temperamental many-sided cuisine "with specific focus" is already a well-known gossip. Colorful interior of our venue won’t leave you indifferent. At your disposal there are three main halls and two VIP-halls, and each of them is interesting and original. In Vostochnyi hall near the open bar counter there are a show kitchen and a bar zone where one can with his own eyes observe the secrets of Caucasian dishes preparation and taste delicious Georgian wines. In Vinogradnik hall there is a comfortable and romantic atmosphere. The hall is decorated with the real mountain rock, the ceiling is plaited with grape-vine, and the walls please the eye with the Oriental carpets and national souvenirs. Vinnyi Pogred is a comfortable hall which was named due to a large number of old wine bottles that serve as a main decoration element. Two VIP-halls Sultanka and Kniazheskaya Besedka will become a great place for holding negotiations, meetings with friends or family dinner. A cozy summer terrace opens its arms to meet the guests during the warm season. It allows you to leisurely watch the tumultuous life of the capital, enjoying the best gastronomic offers of sunny Georgia right in the center of Kyiv and gives a unique feeling of peace and tranquility. What else, except for traditional Caucasian hospitality and heartful company, makes Khinkali dukhan so popular? Correctly - delicious khinkali! Hot, aromatic, made of thin almost transparent dough - they just urge to get into your mouth! But this is only the beginning, we have much more to impress you. Menu of the venue is a real horn of plenty from which Georgian cheeses, Caucasian specialties, delicious khachapuri, chachochbili, shashlyk, lula kebab magically appear… Besides, there are many other dishes the names of which are pleasant for an ear and awake the appetite! "Come in, dear, be my Guest!"

Fantastisk surprise service food and atmosphere as perfect as it Gets. The original dishes were very tasty. Good wine selection and very tentative service. A sure gem

I came here for Khinkali and I got what I wanted. This place looks really fancy and has a good sense of the atmosphere. The service was good. The food was great, but not the best Georgian food in Kiev imo. Still I enjoyed this place and probably will be here again.

Dear shimmyl! It's not pleasant for us that such unpleasant misunderstanding had happened. Our waiter focused on consultation of the wine what you wanted to order and really gave you not all information that caused such situation which disappointed us too much.We apologize for the inconvenience!
