“Dzalian kargi! (= very good)”
Reviewed July 20, 2014 via mobile

Georgian restaurants in former Soviet Union are usually a good bet and this is no exception. Wide range of Georgian food and wine in a great setting (in a park with many seating choices). Staff not great with English and service slow when busy but worth the effort.

“Nice place for dinner if you're staying nearby”
Reviewed June 12, 2014

I stayed at the Holiday Inn on the next street, so the location was great. The restaurant had a nice selection of authentic dishes, mostly Georgian, which were all well executed and tasty but the dish sizes weren't very generous. Service was pleasant but slow. It's a nice place to eat with a pleasant atmosphere and good food but it's not unique or special - not worth going out of your way for. There's also an option to order a Hookah ("Kalyan" in Russian). They do accept credit cards, but not for the tip or Hookah service so be sure to have some cash (generally recommended in Kiev).

“Georgian and authentic”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

Interesting place where a tourist could feel lost. The courses are served with really really big/huge portion !!! There's no choice of wine but that's OK, I can deal with it as it is Georgian!
The place was romantic...not great for a corporate diner :P
The furniture and decoration are great.
