    One of the only sources for Georgian good in Manhattan, now something of a hub for Georgian expats. Though some dishes come underseasoned, the khachapuri (cheese bread) is great.

    Be adventurous with the menu -- it was all new to me but with each course the combination of herbs and spices along with the other fresh ingredients made for a culinary delight. 2 big thumbs up!

    Georgian food is a cuisine that really needs to be more represented here in NYC, and for one and good goddamn reason- khachapuri. What is khachapuri you ask? Aside from one of the... bit.ly/2G6XdhZ

    One of the best places to get Georgian food. Love the ADJARULI, lamb dumplings, and red wine also known as "peasant's tears".

    High quality Georgian food. Khachapuri, khinkali are a must to try. One of the best I've eaten. Very friendly host, will give thoughtful advices.

    Cheesy breads are divine. Get the first one on the menu with an egg in the middle; the salmon and mashed potatoes are also creamy!

    Surprisingly tasty food, and unusually friendly service. Share the massive appetizers: try the Pkhali Trio and the Adjaruli. Then the Chakapuli. The Saperavi - Pheasants Tears is delicious.

    New York Magazine Cheap Eats issue says to try the adjaruli khachapuri, stuffed with feta and mozzarella and topped with a poached egg. Bonus: Georgian wines served in traditional clay cups.

    Holy Cheese board! This place was so great. Dumplings were great and filling. Cheese-y bread everything was great. The one with meat in it was my favorite.

    You’ll want the version called adjaruli, stuffed with cheese, and with an egg cracked into the hollowed-out center like a toad in the hole. Or the soup dumplings called khinkali.

    Trio is delicious and good to share. Imeruli (one of the Khachapuri -Traditional Georgian cheese breads) is also delicious. Will come back to try the other khachapuris.

    Fabulous combinations of flavors, I particularly liked the sausage bread and the dumplings. The Georgian red wine has such a lovely purple color (and taste).

    Went here a sunday night. Try the adjaruli khachapuri, stuffed bread with cheese, butter and poached egg. They have live music too, which was very good!

    It's a bit pricy but awesome and pleasantly casual. Start with a khachapuri (cheese bread) for the table then share some entrees. The liver dish was great.
  • Alexander R.
    Everything was exceptionally delicious! Even in Georgia you don't always find cooking this fine. It can get a bit noisy though.

    The adjaruli khachapuri is stuffed with feta, mozzarella, and poached eggs. Enjoy yours with traditional Georgian wine and fall in love.

    Only Georgian restaurant in NYC at this time. You'll enjoy unique bites, including the Georgian molten cheese bread. It's unbelievable.

    If you're craving Georgian, this may be your only option. The cheese boat bread (whatever it's called) is an awesome snack. Rest of the food is pretty middle of the road. Georgian wine is not good.

    Tasting table tip: try the khachapuri, pkhali trio (eggplant, spinach and leek spreads). chakapuli & the pelamushi. Skip the salmon.

    Village Voice is proud to welcome Oda House to the 2014 Choice Eats food fest! http://bit.ly/1cRzdNV. Their khatchapuri is the perfect caloric marriage of bread and dairy.

    Georgian version of soup dumplings and khatchapuri (cheese bread) that will make your knees weak. Chicken shish kebab also GREAT
