Undoubtedly the most visually impressive of Baku’s many Georgian restaurants, the interior of Georgian Home is somehow more Alice in Wonderland than anything you might expect from Tbilisi or elsewhere across the border.
The combination of beautiful, pierced ceramics, hanging lamps, tables on angled platforms and reflective surfaces is breathtaking, but don’t think for a moment that this is a tactic to divert you from any shortcomings in the food. From the first mouthful of cheese and garlic filled khachapuri bread – like an oozingly unctuous filled naan bread – you know you’re onto a winner. In its six years the Georgian Home has chalked up a lot of loyal followers and an impressive amount of press coverage, both here in Azerbaijan and back home in Georgia. It is easy to see why.
