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, served with 'shoti puri'), Tamada also offers a selection of vegetarian meals. To accompany your meal, the knowledgable staff can also recommend a wine from Georgia, the oldest wine producing region in the world.

We had a great meal and there were lots of superb choices on offer. You have to appreciate Georgian food, but if you do then Tamada compares with the best of them.more
A Georgian friend of ours (now living in London) recommended this restaurant knowing we would be in London. 4 of us went. Three of us ordered the Jarkoe - Tamada Special baked layers of veal, onions, potatoes, cheese, herbs & tarragon which required a 45 minute wait. We had high expectations that were shot down. The veal was close to jerky as it was so over cooked, dry, and stringy.
Delicious Georgian food! Went there with my wife and tried a lot of different dishes and Georgian wine with it. Really great food and the server was very nice and attentive. Will go back to try more dishes for sure.more
Unfortunately, Tamada missed the mark for me and my husband. When comparing to another Georgian restaurant in Notting Hill, Colchis (now closed, gasp!), Tamada doesn't compare to the food once served at Colchis. Additionally, we both felt that for the location, Tamada's prices were too high.

Tamada - Delicious Georgian food, friendly service and a relaxed atmosphere in a beautiful neighbourhood restaurant.
First of all, I find it irritating how one-sided Yelp filters the reviews for this little restaurant. Almost all good reviews are considered "not recommended" for reasons that are beyond me. I think, Tamada definitely deserves a higher score than 2.5 - it might not necessarily...more
