Great georgian food with hard to compete prices in the city. Good deal! Homemade wine and khinkaly are my favourite!

“Great food, good prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014 via mobile

Really delicious meat dishes. (Friend reported veggie dishes equally as good.) Definitely get the cheese quesadilla looking thing to share as a starter - YUM. Don't think our waiter spoke English, but English menus are available. Free WiFi and cheap beer.

“Good food at excellent prices for Moscow”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2014 via mobile

Had a very enjoyable meal here including the Georgian traditional Khinkali and 4 other dishes plus the excellent Georgia bread, followed by desserts and coffee plus fizzy water and a bottle of the Georgian dry red wine (which was fine and went well with the food). Total bill less than 2500 roubles - the only place we have found in Moscow serving good food and wine at a reasonable price. It is worth making the trip out (it's only a few minutes walk from Prospect Mira Metro). We were staying at the Gallery Avenue hotel just up the road, and as it turned out spoilt for choice with great restaurants all in walking distance including the highly rated (but more expensive) Tetri.
The staff did not speak English and we spoke no Russian but they have a menu in English with pictures so ordering was easy.
They have a basic web site but there is an English section at the bottom of the home page which includes links to PDFs of the food and drinks menus, plus very accurate directions to where they are from the Metro. See: shepkina.com
Highly recommended.

“Authentic Georgian”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2014

One of the few places in Moscow that is actually authentic ethnic cuisine. Proven by the presence of a huge Georgian clientele. The food is 1. Tastes like from a Tbilisi tavern. 2. Rather huge protions. 3. Spiced to perfection. 4. Served with a smile.
Of course - not a place to go if you are counting the calories.
Defenitely order and assortment of Khinkali. Careful with the hot stock inside the dumpling.
Also the khachapuris are melt in your mouth. If you are 2+ diners - order 3-4 items and share -
The ketsi dishes are awesome. The Harcho was quite huge and a meal in itself.
The only disappointment was the dolma- rather chewy and dry.
Also the service is quick - our waitress made us feel at home - behaved like a typical georgian host - must go when you visit Moscow.

“Nice, affordable and good Gregorian food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 May 2014 via mobile

It's about 5 mins walk from the metro and situated at a quiet street. Price is cheap (compared with Moscow's standard) but the food is above average. It would a good choice for you if you would like to try Gregorian food with budget!!
