Nice atmosphere and friendly staff. Nice food. But somehow the communication was unclear, the staff were not really able to help with the order or talk about the food. The local wines are of quite low standard.

Very reasonable pricing, if you stick with the basics. Have your Khinkali, for sure. And I also recommend the meat platters, if you are three or four people. Local beers are good and reasonable, too. Great appetizers, that are usually at or below 5 dollars.

Description
"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!"
