Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Incredible food and service. We got the cheese bread with egg yolk and beef tomato stew and have no words. It was enough for both of us. Of course paired with Sangria!

Fantastic food&wine, and the service is the best! We will be back next time in Helsinki, as this might be our favourite place so far. Also an extra thank you from the north of Norway (table 9) to Rodri, for beeing the best waitor! Cecilie,...Roar, Håvard and AinaMore

This was an intyer4dting restaurant serving Georgian food and doing it very well. The service was good and the food tasty and well presented and interesting. Wine was pricy but this may have been a Finland issue. Overall a top experience and recommended.

Great service, great food, great mood! Our entire party of 13 people loved the casual, yet professional atmosphere and for many of us it was a lovely first meeting with Georgian food.

Great experience! Service was outstanding! Waiter explain how the menu worked and told us all the dishes come out at the same time, family style. The cheese bread melted in your mouth! The cucumber and tomato salad was scrumptious! Husband enjoyed his sausage and potatoes...and I enjoyed the vegetable stew. The baklava for dessert was way different than I have had in Greek restaurants and it was a bit dry. Would go back in a heart beat!More

The four of us visited during a weekend break in Helsinki and loved our dinner. We shared the 'world famous' boat shaped bread which has an egg, cheese and butter in nestling in the middle - it was very good. For mains we enjoyed the...grilled chicken with vegetables, the qartuli qababi (minced meat kebab), ajapsandali (veggie stew with tomatoes) and some fried potatoes. We shared the apple pie (which was excellent), house cake and washed our dinner down with a bottle of Tavkveri red also from Georgia. The bill came to 215 euros (inc service). A lovely meal and the service was wonderful - we would recommend Rioni to anyone who visits Helsinki.More

Book a Georgian restaurant while in Finland? It was recommended on Trip Advisor so we did just that and it was excellent. Both meat and vegetarian options delicious. Georgian wine and beer excellent. Great location. Very friendly service.
