Tamada Description

Book a table at Tamada

Your ideal destination for traditional Georgian dining in London, Tamada serves unique, eclectic cuisine in the very pleasant surroundings of St. John's Wood in North-West London. Georgian cuisine is perfect for more adventurous diners, who are tired of eating in the same Thai, Indian, Chinese and Italian restaurants on every corner, and instead seek a new gastronomic experience. Georgian cuisine is very specific to the country, but also features some influences from Middle Eastern and European culinary traditions. As each historical province of Georgia has its own distinct dining customs, Tamada's

menu offers a variety of dishes with a high amount of various herbs and spices to enrich the flavour. In addition to the range of meat dishes such as Chaqapuli (Spicy Lamb Casserole flavoured with wine and plum sauce), Mscvadi Shashlik (Charcoal Grilled and Marinated Pork with plum sauce and potatoes) and Chakhohbili (Chicken braised in tomato and wine sauce with herbs). more

“My every visit at Tamada starts with a glass of red wine (Saperavi) and only then I start considering what to order this time. Since I have tried almost every dish they have on their menu, the choice is not easy because I love almost every single dish, but I also know that it would not be wise to order too much. The servings are big enough and really filling. But if you have a family or friends accompanying you than I would recommend to get a variety of dishes and then to share them for richer Georgian food experience. For starters my absolute favourites are: Badrijani (walnut staffed aubergines), Ispanaki (steamed spinach balls with herbs and walnuts) and Khachapuri (cheese bread). For main course I usually get Chaqapuli (lamb casserole) or Chashushul. After having few more glasses of wine I certainly will not leave the restaurant without having a cup of Georgian coffee and piece of walnut cake - Ideali. And I certainly will be back quite soon... Highly recommended”

“I visited Tamada last Saturday and hence I also received a call from them (like other reviewers) around 6pm which I was not able to answer. When we arrived we were greeted by a nice lady who turned out to be the owner. I told her that unfortunately we would be three people less as some of our friends could not make it that night. She told me that she was trying to contact me to confirm an exact number of guests as they were heavily booked. I apologised for not answering her call particularly when I knew that we would be only five and not eight. She told me not to worry and enjoy our time. This made me feel really guilty as there was no way of rearranging tables (it was very hectic there) and since our table was for eight people three places were wasted. Anyway to make a long story short we had an amazing time. Everything is very filling, but so tasty that I could not stop eating. We shared almost everything on a starters’ menu but had individual main courses. I won’t start stating the obvious – that Kachapuri, beans with walnuts or Kinkali were very good. You just have to experience that yourself. I managed to have a bite of Jarkoe - Tamada Special - and I must say it was very good indeed. We had a semi-sweet wine Kindzmarauli which was heavenly. My friends also tried Chaca, Geoegian vodka, tastes like grappa but it is much stronger. The service was pretty good considering that the restaurant was packed both upstairs and in the basement area. I think that the waiting staff and a supervisor, a rather young chap, had everything under control. We paid £42 per head (without tips) and we had lots of wine and vodka not to mention the food. If you want to try something very different and very tasty you must go to Tamada. Don’t forget to make a reservation particularly if it is a week end. Highly recommended.”

“My partner and I dined at Tamada last week for our anniversary and had a wonderful meal. The service was excellent, not too fussy. We had a Georgian sparkling wine first which was lovely and then continued with a red wine Satrapezo which was recommended by the waitress. It was not cheap but it was worth it! The food was excellent in every way and would recommend a visit to anyone. We shared a cheese bread and a chicken in walnut sauce and then I had a spicy lamb in wine and plum sauce and my partner had a flat fried chicken in garlic sauce, which not only look but smelled excellent. At the end we had a walnut cake which was perfection! I felt like I had died and gone to heaven. This was our first time at Tamada and it lived up to all our expectations. We would definitely come back.”
