Description: Western Georgia is famous for culinary traditions. The Khochu Kharcho restaurant’s menu includes all the juicy Megrel dishes - Khachapuri with traditional Suluguni cheese filling, delicious Chakhokhbili and, of course, the nourishing Kharcho soup. Brand-Chef and the soul of the entire restaurant group Iso Dzandzava knows all the secrets of Megrelian cooks. Just like people do in her home country, she puts Kharcho into a hazelnut and brings the special Adjika sauce back from Georgia, whenever she travels home. The cozy interior of the Khochu Kharcho restaurant invites to leisure meetings and soulful conversations. Two floors and a summer terrace can accommodate 300 people, but the feeling of a close get-together is created by well-planned zoning of the restaurant space. I want a Kharcho! Here. Now. Delicious!

Good decor - particularly liked the tented /curtained seating areas at the back upstairs; and the loos were really lovely, too!
Also very good food and wine - although not particularly cheap, it was the best we had in St.Petersburg.

We were in St Petersburg for 4 days. We were advised to sample Georgian food at this restaurant. We went there for dinner and had a great evening. There was a group of us so we shared some of the dishes which were delicious. The service was excellent and the wait staff attentive. We thought the prices of the dishes were reasonable but the wine was incredibly expensive, so we only had a beer.

Possibly the worst place in the whole city. Poor standardized food and bad service. It's not authentic caucasian cousine at all.

Hello, I work in Service Department of Ginza Project. It is really disappointing that you didn't like our food. Our chief is an authentic Caucasian and all the recipes have been developed by big company of professional cooks. Most of our guests are satisfied both with our service and dishes. If only you could advise us on what was bad decently, we could control it. You can visit some of our other restaurants to try our best asian dishes. We work for you and are always ready to improve.

This was best restaurant I went to while in St. Petersburg. Much better overall than couple other highly ranked restaurants I tried. Waiter was very friendly and helpful (and spoke English).
The salad with smoked sturgeon was very fresh and good; my favorite was the eggplant dish-so much flavor and perfectly prepared.
It was fun to sit near kitchen area and see the bread baked. I will definitely come back and try more things from their extensive menu.

We did not left our hearts into Khochu Kharcho, there's plenty of more genuine Georgian restaurants in a city..

Some of us went back for a breakfast and were more satisfied.
