The Georgian House in Tbilisi, Georgia, is a restaurant that serves traditional Georgian cuisine. It is a good venue for MICE social events as it has several indoor and outdoor spaces catering to different group sizes. These include:
• Central Prestige Hall with built-in stage and with a capacity of 300 guests
• VIP room with boardroom seating arrangement for 20 pax
• Tiflis Hall with traditional interior decor for 200 guests
• Other private rooms in traditional country-style decor for about 10 guests each
There are standard showtimes at the restaurant featuring Georgian folk music and dance, but MICE groups can of course arrange private gala dinner performances.
Khinkali is a national food of Georgia, and the Georgian House is one of the best places to enjoy this. Those who are familiar with Chinese Xiaolong Bao may find this similar, as Khinkali is a kind of dumpling with soup wrapped within it. When eating Khinkali, it is best to ditch the fork and knife, hold the tip of the dumpling with your fingers and turn it upside-down. Bite part of the dumpling skin off to sip the hot soup carefully, then slowly enjoy the rest of the dumpling filled with pork or beef. You need not eat the tip as it is quite thick and hard. (note: don’t use this technique on a Xiaolong Bao.)
Georgian House is located on Tsabadze street within the historical old city.
