Lovely restaurant in terms of decor, and the first of our two dinners there was really excellent. Succulent khinkhali, delicious lobiani, and first-class lamb shashlik. The service was charmingly attentive; the only snag was that the restaurant had only one menu in English but with out of date prices. It was easy enough to compare it to the Russian version, however. Our second experience was less favourable. Decent khachapuri but the lamb shashlik that we ordered turned out to be a different type from the one we'd requested - and as it happens was the most expensive item on the menu! We felt that the head waiter (who spoke some English) had taken advantage of us - and we weren't impressed when he accused us of not telling the truth when we pointed out that the dessert they had brought was again not what we'd ordered. This was compounded by the incredibly loud background noise from a private party in the adjacent room. So, it was quite a different 'dining experience' from the first. Food excellent on both occasions, whereas otherwise the two evenings could not have been more different. NB: pricey!

I'm sure I'll draw ire from some, but I'm a frequent Georgian and Caucasian restaurant visitor in both SPB and Moscow, and this one is well below par in taste. Some of the dishes (Kutaby and the cheese bread thingy) tasted like they were microwaved, hard and perfect looking seemingly straight form the freezer. There were issues with the oven, so we couldn't actually have hachapuri (sp?) or the suluguni (sp?) stuffed cheese breads, and overall, nothing really special to remember the visit by.
