Besides Georgian cuisine, the country’s capital offers international meals at various restaurants. Here, you can try Turkish, Lebanese, Japanese, Chinese and Indian cuisine, to name a few. The city boasts more Asian restaurants than European varieties; this is mainly because every café and restaurant in Tbilisi offers a selection of staple European meals along with local dishes. So, here’s a list of restaurants that serve something other than Georgian fare.

Taj Mahal Restaurant

Restaurant, Indian

Taj Mahal Restaurant offers a wide variety of Pakistani, Indian and Arabic cuisine. Here, you can try samosas, pakoras, soups, mutton, chicken, and vegetarian dishes, along with their traditional bread and milkshakes. The prices are average, and servings are decent.

Sushi Room

Restaurant, Sushi, Japanese

If you’d like to eat sushi in Tbilisi, head to the Sushi Room, which offers soups, appetizers, rice bowls, Japanese noodle meals, desserts, and, of course, an exceptional range of sushi. The venue serves rolls, futomaki, gunkan, nigiri, and special set menus that will suit any taste and need.

Tuk Tuk

Restaurant, Thai, Asian, Vegetarian

Tuk Tuk is the place to go if you like Thai cuisine. However, the venue also serves other types of Asian meals. You can try different soups, noodle and rice dishes, and even sushi. As for the Thai food itself, the venue offers various dishes such as Thai curry, Pad Kra Pao, and spring rolls, to name a few. The prices are very affordable, while the interior is minimalist and quite cozy.


Restaurant, Japanese

Kyoto is a Japanese restaurant named after the ancient capital of Japan. The friendly and cozy atmosphere makes the venue a favorite for many locals and out-of-town visitors. Here, you can try classic Japanese cuisine and chef specials.

Amira Restaurant

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
