SquareMeal Review of Tbilisi

Brave the madness of Holloway Road &, a short skip from Highbury & Islington tube, you’ll get a rare opportunity to experience Georgian cuisine. Named after the country’s capital, Tbilisi has a somewhat stately air, with rich red walls & high-backed chairs in dark-brown leather. Staff are generally agreeable, & filling your tummy with generous platefuls of hearty cooking is unlikely to empty your wallet. Khachapuri, the doughy, cheesy Georgian bread, has many fans, & chikhirtma chicken soup arrives loaded with fresh dill. Starters of salads & mezze are good for sharing, while meat-heavy mains include a spicy beef stew & satsivi (chicken & walnuts with ghomi, a rice & cornflour purée). Georgia has a long history of wine production, & there are expensive bottles on display, but the wine list also includes more-affordable, & highly drinkable, options.

I went to this restaurant with a group of friends last week and thought we found a real gem on the holloway road. Food at Tbilisi was simply delicious; particularly the starters where Khachapuri (warm cheese bread) combined so well with selection of other veg starters. I liked the "Tabaka' for my mains – a pan fried spring chicken in walnut sauce with its great garnish. Georgian wine was pretty good too and the country is famous for its wine tradition. We received a friendly and caring service and finally the bill, which was surprisingly low compared to the quality of dinning experience we had. thats why I am going back to this restaurant in 2 weeks. Definitely recommended.
