“Nice experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2013 via mobile

Pleasant restaurant, well cooked kebabs, nice wines and accommodating waitstaff. During off-season there were few tourists, lots of locals.

“The new king of Georgian food !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2013

This place is run by the ginzaproject, so my expectations were a restaurant on the more expensive side where the interior and atmosphere plays the big role and the food is so and so. Fortunately I was proven wrong.

The atmosphere is really nice with all kinds of people, from trendsetters, families, business and so on. The interior is planned well and always ask for a seat in the sofas on the second floor, as eating and spending time can take long here.

The food is very good, not the cheapest, but not the most expensive. A huge variety of different specialities, and fun drinks to go with the food. Just order in food from here and there, and share the experience.

Somehow this place is even open 24/7 !

The overall experience is what counts here, and that is why I recommend this as the best Georgian today in town (although you could argue that Ket and Kilikia are as good, but they lack then something in atmosphere or other details).

“not what you expect from a 24hr restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2013

open 24/7 and menu has pictures of kebabs? usually these are warning signs of low quality tourist trap food, but happily not in this case. Don't be put off by the slightly gloomy exterior - the staff are very welcoming, and inside it's a proper restaurant. Great food, good drink choice, good atmosphere.

We went twice, can recommend the meat skewers and the Kharcho. Try the khachapuri (cheese stuffed pie with more cheese on top, more like a pizza than pie really) as a starter, but don't eat it all (leave space for the mains), and they'll happily wrap up the leftovers to takeaway. Don't be shy about this, we saw loads of people taking out leftovers. Makes a perfect snack for waiting at the airport.

Not cheap, but comparable to everywhere else in town.

“Nice Georgian food and good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

This place had a very nice atmosphere, with comfortable couches by the tables. Menus had good images so it was easy to choose. Food was not stunning, but good. The waitresses were polite and service was fairly quick. This place was definitely worth a visit.
