If you are looking for the authentic Georgian cuisine with good Georgian wine (in our case -Kinzmarauli,Stalin's favorite red wine),special atmosphere of a comfortable family restaurant with Georgian music at background, a very friendly and relaxing ,not irritating service,this special restaurant is the right place for you.We 'very been there several times during the last 10 years,with our family and with friends, and every time all of us enjoyed every dish we had ordered and our stay there was always very successful. That's why every time we go to Jerusalem, the dinner in Kangaroo is always in our list Our recommendations : 1.To reserve the table beforehand.(they don't work on Sundays! ) I personally prefer to sit downstairs,inside the room that looks like a wine cellar. 2.plan to have your dinner not before 14.00 and not later than 19.00 in order to be able to taste some of the tastiest Georgian dishes and not to feel sorry afterwards that you were too full to tasty something else (unless you decide to leave it for the next visit). Don't forget that the Georgian cuisine includes a lot of dough, cheese,meat,spices and is extremely tasty,however, heavy.The portions are big enough for one person, but not enough for sharing,unless both of you are weak eaters.Ask Julia or Eka (the owner) for recommendations. 3.Try not to be in a hurry (plan to stay there at least 2-3 hours),because the dishes are not pre-cooked,and,in any case,you can enjoy a slow,relaxing conversation accompanied by good wine and pleasant background of music.In addition, you definitely need a break between the courses in order to appreciate the flavor of each one of them. 4.If would recommend you to order and share: Plata of the salads (a mix of different types of Georgian salads),hachapuri (with 3 or 4 types of cheese,there are different kinds of hachapuri,that differ in their type of dough and cheese,ask the waitress for more explanations),hinkali. For the main dish it can be or chahohbili (a hot an
We returned to this place for 3 dinners while on a 5 day stay in Jerusalem. It says it all! If you crave authentic, fresh Georgian cuisine, ambiance, family like experience - try this quaint, not so easy to find gem. Talk to the owner Eka - this is a special treat.
This is a non-kosher restaurant but there is a good selection of vegetarian items. There is a huge range of salads, including several versions of Lobio, a kind of hummus made with red or green beans. Theirs was very tasty. The piece de resistance, however is the kachapuri, a kind of Georgian pizza, although that doesn't do,it justice. Kangaroo serves several varieties; the Adjarian was superb and huge -- I can't understand why some have complained that the portions are small here. I have a very healthy appetite yet could barely finish the khachapuri. Service was ok and the ambience was rustic. There is a patio for outside eating. The wine list is small but acceptable, although when I visited they were out of Georgian wine. rustic
This is a cute little restaurant tucked away in a back alley, with lots of cats wandering about and occasionally sneaking into the dining area. My wife loves cats, so that was a plus for us, but YMMV. The khatchapouri cheese appetizer was really good. The Georgian wine was OK. Unusual, but tasty. The khilkani buns and the beef blintzes were also just OK. Very hearty, but not a whole lot of flavor. Service was kind of slow, I think because they just had one poor woman doing all of it. She was working very hard, but she was spread pretty thin. For the record, we were there at the end of the night and they closed the kitchen, so we couldn't try the dessert. They did offer us coffee, though.
