Description: Mimino has been a favorite Georgian restaurant of the Kyivans since 1999. It is located at Podil, the cozy shady streets and low buildings of which are so reminiscent of the old center of Tbilisi. When you come into the hall, which looks like a quiet Tiflis courtyard, where an ancient tree grows just through the roof of one of the buildings and plashes of sunlight are reflected in the stained-glass windows, you feel that your are at home at last. Because the ancient Georgian proverb goes that a guest is a messenger of God. And here the tables are served for the guests on which dishes are composed in a poem: a tender suluguni with bunching onion from a small family Georgian farm; satsivi (walnut sauce) cooked from farm chicken with Imereti saffron; dolma in young grape leaves; juicy khinkali; hot chashushuli sizzling on an earthenware ketsa; shish-kebab just removed from chargrill...

This is a must eat here place, on every visit my wife & I make to Kiev we must eat here at least once, if we only have time for one meal, this is first choice. Portions are generous and standard of cooking is excellent. A good place to try those great Georgian wines!!

Went to this restaurant tonight, and came straight home to write the review.

Brilliant service by a very friendly English speaking waitress who was right on hand to make recommendations and help with special requests. Attentive, but left us alone for the most part. Price was a little high, but not the most expensive in Kiev, and a lot better than some more expensive meals. Above all, food tasted delicious (we had lamb kebabs, Georgian taster menu, hom-made potatoes, baklava and Georgian dessert of walnuts and grape jelly). Some really different tastes and textures - truly delightful and will definitely be back.

Very nice Georgian restaurant, we eat there often. Highly recommended for tourists.
Excellent khachapuri even though their size gets smaller and smaller over the years and price goes up. Very nice selection of meat dishes, amazing sauces, nice wines.
The cuisine really gives you a taste of Georgia.

it is situated in Podol (Podil) area of Kiev, restaurant is named after the infamous cult soviet film 'mimino' (falcon? in Georgian) with some scenes from the film on the walls.
prices are very affordable and food is very tasty as in almost all georgian restaurants.
