Gujari Restaurant-Museum occupies a large compound with a beautiful garden, open spaces for outdoor events and indoor dining halls. The “museum” part is a bit of a misnomer as it refers mainly to some archeological artifacts from Georgia (some dating back to the 6th century) displayed on the restaurant’s interior walls.
Apart from the main restaurant that can accommodate about 80 guests, there is also a large tentage hall with a capacity of up to 300 guests. This is suitable for weddings, gala dinners, or even conferences. MICE organisers can arrange master classes in preparing Georgian bread (shotis puri), wrapping Khinkali dumplings, making Georgian sweets Churchkala, observe chacha (a kind of Georgian vodka) distillation process and others.
Food-wise, on the day of this review, the restaurant served an excellent Khachapuri with crisp, flaky pastry and rich, melty cheese filling. The chicken soup cooked with local vegetables and served with dark bread was okay though a bit salty, as with those from other restaurants in Georgia.
This is an interesting venue for MICE events if the organisers are prepared to go out of the city of Tbilisi.
