Disappointing and expensive
TripAdvisor RatingReviewed on November 4, 2019

I was really looking forward to this place, but it fell short in a few major ways, most of which revolved around service. We arrived around 3:30pm, a slow off-time, but there were three other tables of 2-3 people finishing late lunches. I was disappointed to see that all of the dumplings were pork mixed...

I was really looking forward to this place, but it fell short in a few major ways, most of which revolved around service. We arrived around 3:30pm, a slow off-time, but there were three other tables of 2-3 people finishing late lunches. I was disappointed to see that all of the dumplings were pork mixed with beef (I keep kosher, and while I knew this place wasn't kosher, it was a little disappointing that there wasn't at least one kosher-friendly dumpling). We settled for the set menus, though at first the waitress said 'no, they're only until 4pm' and then dryly agreed that 'oh, it's not quite 4; yes, okay.' We each ordered one of the two types of set menu (each which comes with three options for mains) as well as the eggplant with walnuts, a Georgian delicacy. Salads and rolls (one small roll each) came first, then soups--my mushroom soup was watery and too heavy on the pepper, my wife's mutton soup was better. Her main was a single veal skewer, served with just onions--no bread, no potato or rice, etc. A bit sad. I got the beef blintzes, which were really good, and a huge portion (compared to her standalone meat). The eggplant never came. The waitress disappeared after delivering our food and so we couldn't ask--and everything took so long to appear that we opted not to push it. There were street cats in and out of the dining room, including one with a severe eye infection. The waitress fed them bread, which felt a little wrong (at least give them meat scraps, cats can't handle bread). The bathroom was grim and smelled of urine all over. The meal itself was really expensive, and do watch out--tip is included automatically, which isn't the norm in Israel. There are other Georgian places in Jerusalem. Go to them instead.

Tasty and different
TripAdvisor RatingReviewed on November 1, 2019

Food was great - If you go for cheese, butter and lots of herbs. Georgian food takes some getting used to but If you are willing to try new things you will love it! Most of the food we had was fantastic. The place is nice - an old house with arches and stuff. Nice...

Most of the food we had was fantastic. The place is nice - an old house with arches and stuff. Nice room (we sat upstairs) with quite music so we could talk. Staff were very nice and helpful - we had a lot of questions . Only problem was the cats everywhere - even inside!!! (some of the guests give them food). And the bathrooms needed cleaning.... The prices are very reasonable. It's open on saturdays and not kosher.

Amazing food and great service
TripAdvisor RatingReviewed on October 11, 2019

The food was amazing. We’d never had Georgian food before and the person who took our order was really helpful at explaining how the meal would traditionally be eaten and gave recommendations for the dishes. Everything we had tasted amazing. Worth every penny.
