One of the better restaurants serving regional food. All d dishes we had were good enough including the Khachapuri. We missed out on kinkhali tho. Cultural programs are planned and interesting if u like culture.

Restaurant is decorated amazing. It show all Georgian tradition ambiance. Food is fair. But Caucasian dance show is really nice. They can improve their food taste. They have limited wine selection. But if you want feel Georgian tradition, You have to go there.
