Top Five Georgian Restaurants
Fall in love with Georgia with the Insider’s fave five! Chinkalnia ul. Piękna 15 Looking a little more modern – sterile, dare we say it – than your typical folksy ethnic outpost, Chinkalnia’s draw is indeed its chinkali: dough purses packed with meaty broth. There’s a genuine homey quality... Read more
Leo’s Marani

Leo’s Marani

Restaurants 1 October 2019 0

An ambitious newbie launched in July, Leo’s Marani mixes Georgian and Armenian flavors to present a menu that feels slightly more novel than the others: for example, refer to lamb chops marinated in coffee, cognac and pomegranate juice. Other success stories involve the Armenian-caught trout and huge shashlik sets... Read more
Chmeli Suneli

Chmeli Suneli

Restaurants 15 September 2019 0

The ‘modern-folk’ interior blends clean colors and exposed brickwork with slanted timber shelving and bright caricatures of Georgian gents: it looks just fab. Then there’s the food: served in clay pots and on thick, wooden boards, the nosh is wholehearted and ideal for early autumn and those long months... Read more
Rioni

Rioni

Restaurants 24 March 2018 0

Warsaw’s foodies like talking of ‘cursed locations’, and they don’t get more hexed than Mokotowska 17. But despite its history of failed ventures, Rioni feel better placed than most to break the jinx. Set in a curving brick room lit by dangling overhead bulbs, join a young-ish crowd for... Read more
Review: Rusiko Wine Bar
Designed to act as a casual extension of the neighboring Rusiko restaurant, this wine bar showcases Warsaw’s biggest selection of Georgian wine inside an interior that feels intimate, jazzy and highly atmospheric. Elaborate rugs, deep rouge in color, hang from tall sapphire walls, while impossibly high ceilings do much... Read more

Rugs of Georgia
Award-winning chef David Turkestanishvili talks about his secret vice: the rugs of his native Georgia… How can a rug change my apartment? By adding an explosion of life. I think the way a rug can inject its own personality into an apartment is almost mystical. The rig is the... Read more
The Art Of Chinkali

The Art Of Chinkali

Reviews 3 December 2015 0

Dining goes upside down It’s not often you see a sign in a language other than Polish or English on the streets of Warsaw, so I like that Chinkali has a dual language shingle hanging out to let Georgian brethren know they are there to offer them the comforts... Read more
Chinkali

Chinkali

Restaurants 26 November 2015 0

Signposted by a Georgian-language shingle, there’s a real sense of pleasure about this place. More modern than your typical folksy ethnic outpost, Chinkali’s draw is indeed its chinkali: dough purses packed with meaty broth. There’s a genuine homemade quality to these slurpy bundles of joy, meaning that while they’re... Read more
Klukovka

Klukovka

Restaurants 14 November 2015 0

Jana Pawła’s pavilions are the unlikely location of this culinary beacon: amid the aggressive waft of its kebab shop neighbors, Klukova presents itself as a warming winter mouse hole filled with banter, babble and rich aromas. Specializing in the foods of ‘the east’, this means a menu inspired by... Read more
