Tamada

Squaremeal Review of Tamada ?

For an approachable taste of Georgia look no further than this dinky restaurant, where elegant, light interiors contrast with the homely, hearty food. But remember to arrive hungry, as you’ll doubtless leave full. Mezze-style starters include aubergine stuffed with walnuts, or spring rolls filled with beef, onions & egg, though only the brave should order kuchmachi, a stew of pig’s lungs, liver & heart braised with onions & spices. Typical main courses are stewed meats in rich, comforting sauces, which go well with the selection of Georgian wines. The house special of jarkoe sees layers of veal, caramelised onions, potato & cheese baked with a mayonnaise topping – filling but quite delicious. Don’t forget to order cheese-stuffed breads as accompaniments, & the delicious walnut cake as a finale.

Promise versus delivery

by   platinum reviewer (215)

Dec 2016

Boundary Road, which marks the eponymous border between the boroughs of Westminster and Camden has a remarkably diverse range of restaurants along the small stretch of its western end. The Meghna Grill Indian is a much-loved and familiar favourite, but my dining comrades and I were in search of something different while in the area on a recent weekday evening and so opted for Tamada, which can probably claim to be one of London’s few Georgian restaurants. Prior to my visit, I have to confess knowing...

Well, Georgian food won't be everybody's “cup of tea”. But I am curious to try new tastes and Tamada certainly provides them. The stuffed breads really are worth sharing and the Borscht was not of the cloying, sweet, variety. The rolled aubergine was interesting though the beef spring rolls were a bit bland and disappointing. The layered veal was very well worth tasting and the portion was not mean either, so thumbs up there and for the spring chicken baked in a dish with potatoes. I want to try...

The minute you set your foot in Tamada, you are transported into Georgia – everything looks, smells and tastes like in Georgia. Food is the best you can have in and outside of Georgia, without exaggeration. The owner of the restaurant, Tamara Lordkipanidze, makes you feel at home, staff make you feel like you are paying a visit to a friend and not just being a client in a restaurant. It is almost a cultural experience! My daughter has dairy and egg allergies and does not eat even slightly spicy...

What a find! Three of went on a Sunday to celebrate my birthday and it could not have been nicer. The welcome was so friendly; Tamara the co-owner (her partner is the chef) has that rare gift of being attentive without being over-powering. The room is really classy, no pretence at a Georgian peasant tavern. Our vegetarian was in heaven with the choices she had but the carnevourors had their hands smacked as we tried to help ourselves to her spinach and aubergine delicacies. As the other reviewers...
