We are in town for a five days now and we eat in much better restorants from this one. The food was ok but nothing special and we didn’t like the atmospher in the terace of the restoran where we have to eat because all other places inside of restoran was full.

I visited this place on December 27th 2018. Honestly, I always have high expectations about Georgian places because they are so delicious but this one exceeded my expectations in all regards.
The food was amazing. Every single dish we ordered was so good, I can’t even describe! I compared it with a Georgian place called Oda in lower east side in NYC, Mamamlyga is 10 times better than Oda!

We paid about $70 for three people and I think we ordered too much! In Oda we paid about $200 for three for about the same amount of food and drinks just to compare! Big difference, right?!
In any case, here are some stuff what we ordered: soup Harcho was great and had like a pound of meat in it! :) A hachapuri with an egg. OMG was go great! Freshly made lightly salted and delicious.
I ordered Georgian Salad with eggplants and i can say that you absolutely must try it. They caramelized them so that the eggplant got this wonderful crunchy crust! I never had anything better!
I can’t describe all the dishes we ate but it was a lot of food, believe me!
Their service was American level. Not something I expected from Russians to be honest with you!
Our waiter was very polite and so knowledgeable! He helped us with our hachapuri and recommended some other dishes! All waiters speak English by the way!
Our dessert from grapes is really worth trying if you are looking for something not too sugary but yet amazing!
I highly recommend this restaurant to everyone who is looking for a good place to eat near Kazansky Cathedral. It is just steps away from it!
