Upscale Georgian to satisfy the most selective gourmet. Noon-1am.
Small Georgia in the heart of Moscow. There are a lot of wood, long and wide tables, home looking curtains and hanged dried garlic with hot papers in the interior design. The walls are decorated with paintings where Caucasus family characters smile at visitors showing warm hospitality. Passionate Georgian temper appears in rich red wine and in traditional delicacies: home-made suluguni cheese, phali and aromatic harcho. Loud and lively groups of people tell long and wise toasts while celebrating anniversaries and birthdays. There is only positive aura in this place, live music, dancing and large selection of shashlyks. Guests of the restaurant exchange friendly smiles following Georgian custom - those who are under one roof considered as one big family.
