Excellent array of Georgian food in a modern setting. I always find it hard to go past the khachapuri and theirs was certainly good. Along with the khinkali - which I enjoyed and were larger than I've had before. We also had a number of other dishes which left us full. As it was Easter, they also gave us an... More

Coming from Western countries, you might be hesitant to try the Georgian cuisine because as far as I know, there are not much or even none of these restaurants in Europe. But you should definitely try it while in Kiev, unless you have the chance to go directly to Georgia. :) And for this intent, Shoti will be perfect; it... More

It seems that the bane of many highly successful restaurant in Kiev is what I call autopilot mode. This is when they enter the stage where the menu rarely changes and preparations become rote. Indeed, Shoti has come to that but they have also managed to add a new dimension to autopilot mode – robotic service. It’s amazing to see... More

Again it was fantastic! Very good quality and fair prices. The only thing to mention is that we reserved a particular table in a particular room and they gave it to sombody else who did not reserve. This is typical Ukrainian organisation.

This Georgian restaurant is the very best for quality of the food and service. It has a nice interior with ample space between tables for groups to have a nice meal. The menu has all the classic Georgian dishes from the starters to the kinkali to the hachapura and a good selection of meat dishes. It is lacking some fish... More

Being in the Ukraine for the first time, this was also my first Eastern European dining experience. And I wasn't left longing! I thoroughly enjoyed all the flavours especially the kebabs. The food was very reasonable in value but as others said the drinks were steep.

Great food, excellent wine selection, fantastic service. Try the adjapsandal, chicken chakhakhbili, khinkali, khachapouri and the lamb kebab. Order the imported Red Saperavi from Kakhetia.......not cheap but very worth it.
