Your ideal destination for traditional <b>Georgian dining</b> in London, Tamada serves unique, eclectic cuisine in the very pleasant surroundings of St. John's Wood in North-West London. <br/><br/>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. <br/><br/>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. <br/><br/>To accompany your meal, the knowledgable staff can also recommend a wine from Georgia, the oldest wine producing region in the world.

I must be honest - I have never been to Georgia so cannot comment really how authentic the food is.
