One of the best restaurants I've been to in Kiev. The food is absolutely delicious. Also, the interior design of the establishment is quite unique. We stuffed ourselves there.

I wanted my daughter to try Georgian soup dumplings so we stopped here for lunch. It's in a basement not far from Bessarabsky Market. Very charming and quiet place and quite busy in the best sense. Service was attentive. Menu in Russian and English. We ordered from the 'business lunch' menu. Not a lot of Georgian choices on this menu,... More

Very casual and delicious Georgian food. The service is impeccable too. The hachapurri, hinkali, and chebureki were all amazing. The atmosphere inside is a little dark and quiet.

I'm a big fan of Georgian food and hunt it down whenever I'm in Ukraine, so I've eaten in dozens of different places, but this is my favourite. Especially in winter or on colder days this place is the best. A warm, cosy atmosphere with old-style Georgian decor that makes me feel like I'm really in Georgia. The staff are... More

"A Georgian without a guest is not a Georgian!" this is what considered in a hospitable Khinkali dukhan (tavern). Local customs will impress you with their generosity, extent and amiability, and our temperamental many-sided cuisine "with specific focus" is already a well-known gossip. Colorful interior of our venue won't leave you indifferent. At your disposal there are three main halls and two VIP-halls, and each of them is interesting and original. In Vostochnyi hall near the open bar counter there are a show kitchen and a bar zone where one can with his own eyes observe the secrets of Caucasian dishes preparation and taste delicious Georgian wines. In Vinogradnik hall there is a comfortable and romantic atmosphere. The hall is decorated with the real mountain rock, the ceiling is plaited with grape-vine, and the walls please the eye with the Oriental carpets and national souvenirs. Vinnyi Pogred is a comfortable hall which was named due to a large number of old wine bottles that serve as a main decoration element. Two VIP-halls Sultanka and Kniazheskaya Besedka will become a great place for holding negotiations, meetings with friends or family dinner. A cozy summer terrace opens its arms to meet the guests during the warm season. It allows you to leisurely watch the tumultuous life of the capital, enjoying the best gastronomic offers of sunny Georgia right in the center of Kyiv and gives a unique feeling of peace and tranquility. What else, except for traditional Caucasian hospitality and heartful company, makes Khinkali dukhan so popular? Correctly - delicious khinkali! Hot, aromatic, made of thin almost transparent dough - they just urge to get into your mouth! But this is only the beginning, we have much more to impress you. Menu of the venue is a real horn of plenty from which Georgian cheeses, Caucasian specialties, delicious khachapuri, chachochbili, shashlyk, lula kebab magically appear... Besides, there are many other dishes the names of which are pleasant for an ear and awake the appetite! "Come in, dear, be my Guest!"
