The food is really good and testy. I liked it. It may take little long compared to American standards. But remember they bake the bread at the location and prepare a fresh meal. It's very affordable.

The food is delicious and cheap but they often bake items for delivery which is why the food can typically take 30-45 minutes to get to your table even if the restaurant seems near empty.

Food is ok.Service is a bit slow but the restaurant was overcrowded at 12 pm.So I took it easy and just enjoyed my food and beer because we had no choice because of late time.Big variety of hinkhali.

The service here is obviously poor as we ask for the wifi password and non of them has a clue how to use it and they keep giving wrong password. Our order lasted for 45 mins. The only good thing is the food as i feel it is really local and the price is not that expensive compared to restaurants... More

We ordered a Kebab. The taste was ok but not at a high level. The behaviour of stuff was ok but again not at a high level. However the atmosphere and designation was nice. Finally I think it was an average resturant.

After 4 hours of walking in old Tbilisi, we reached this 3floor restaurants and we had the chance to sit at the 2nd floor's balcony. The khachapuri was aewsome. dry wine was awesome, kutlet is very good ... We were two times here and very thankful that it is 24hours.

The food is very nice and terrific value for money. We also enjoyed a cheap and very tasty bottle of wine. But the service was slow and somewhat random with some dishes not arriving and the bill taking ages to come.

Food are more or less fine. However not all meals diverse high score. Tabaka-chicken and veal BBQ are dry. Service charge is included to bill but waiter doesn't get it. Owner looks greedy and unfair
